The 10 best 2 player PS4 games

By Aaron Potter | | 566493 |

Want to play the best 2 player PS4 games currently available on the platform? Of course. After all, the PlayStation 4 has earned its place as the best-selling home console worldwide for a reason, full of exceptional first-party exclusives and multiplatform titles that catered to almost every type of player – experiencing with them with a friend makes them infinitely better. You might only get one Dualshock 4 controller out of the box, but any of the 2 player PS4 games we’ve listed below are a great reason to seek out and buy another.

Whether you’re in the mood for mowing down zombies alongside a co-operative partner or want to embark on a wide-spanning fantasy adventure full of things to see and do, the PS4 has plenty of co-operative multiplayer games sure to whet your appetite. Here are the 10 best 2 player PS4 games – both online and local – that let you go at it as a duo.

10. The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan

Most horror games on PS4 are great to play through with a friend by your side, but The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan takes this concept a step further by baking the spook-filled camaraderie into the actual gameplay. You and others will try your best to save a group of innocent teens from the hallmarks of a classic slasher flick, passing a single Dualshock 4 controller around to guide them through obstacles and overcome dangers.

Man of Medan is the first in a planned series of bite-sized horror experiences, being a story that will adapt and change depending on the decisions and choices you make. It’s one of the best 2 player PS4 games out there because it acts as a clever spin on the survival horror genre, not demanding too much precision from players but rather serving as a unique interactive experience. Just don’t go into it with anyone who’s faint of heart.

    9. LittleBigPlanet 3

    LittleBigPlanet 3

    Side-scrolling puzzle-platformers simply don’t get more charming than LittleBigPlanet 3. It expanded on the previous two games by adding in another three cute characters in the mix, each of which combine with the abilities of Sackboy to make sitting on the sofa and playing this with friends even more fun. OddSock, Swoop and Toggle all play differently, jumping, swimming, swinging, grabbing across an endless collection of player-created levels.

    All previous user-generated stages from LittleBigPlanet  and LittleBigPlanet 2 carry over into this one, meaning you’ll never be at a loss for things to do. This is in addition to a carefully crafted single-player mode that includes the voice talents of Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, made using the same tools available to players. Whether you want to get in and create together or just play through other’s inventions with friends, LittleBigPlanet 3 is one of the best 2 player PS4 games that can’t be played anywhere else.

    8. Diablo III Eternal Collection

    Diablo 3 ps4

    Developed by Blizzard Entertainment, Diablo III is quite rightly considered by many to be the magnum opus of dungeon-crawling games. You and up to three friends can make a personalised character out of a decent number of classes, taking the fight to the devil himself in glorious top-down fashion. No dungeon crawler is complete without its fair share of loot, and that’s exactly what keeps players coming back for more in Diablo III. Everything you pick up and equip while playing makes your character a stronger, more formidable warrior.

    The Eternal Collection is the only one available on PS4, and this is a good thing considering that it bundles the original Diablo III characters and campaign with the new Reaper of Souls expansion. The result is a feature-complete package that’ll have you and friends busy for potentially hundreds of hours, especially considering the post-campaign adventure mode which ensures the slashing and loot never need come to an end.

    7. Knack II

    While the first Knack served as little more than a technical marvel intended to showcase the power of PS4, fans could rest easy knowing that all the first game’s ideas were better realised in this 2017 sequel. Knack II is one of the best 2 player PS4 games simply because couch co-op is a rarity anyway these days, but especially in 3D platformers like this. Player 1 still plays as the eponymous hero, changing his shape and size to overcome puzzle obstacles and different enemy types, only this time an extra player can drop in and drop out as they please.

    New this time around is a skill tree system that allows you to power up your Knack, in addition to unique in-story abilities centred around elements like Iron, stealth and now Ice. Alongside the 2016 remake of Ratchet & Clank, Knack II is arguably the closest you can get to a playable Pixar movie – only now you can experience it with a friend thanks to local co-operative play. Take on the High Goblin empire and have fun doing it in the delightful Knack II.

    6. LEGO Marvel Superheroes

    The LEGO games are great for co-op because they appeal to players both young and old. And better yet, TT Games has been hard at work creating titles around some of pop culture’s most recognisable media for almost 15 years now, that there’s sure to be one based on a license perfectly suited to your tastes. For this list we’ve gone for the first LEGO Marvel Superheroes, not least because it features over 100 characters from the comic book world and lets you roam a fully LEGO-fied version of New York City.

    Sending you and another PS4 player through an original Marvel storyline written exclusively for this game, you’ll jump between characters like Spider-Man, Wolverine, Daredevil and more, doing battle against Doctor Doom to prevent his evil plan. LEGO Marvel Superheroes is one of the best 2 player PS4 games for all these reasons and many more, being the ultimate love-letter to a world so many kids and kids at heart have grown to love. It’s pure 3D platforming joy with a superhero spin and should not be missed my co-operative players.

    5. Divinity Original Sin II

    Fantasy RPGs changed forever when Larian Studios released itshighly anticipated sequel to Divinity Original Sin. A sprawling adventure set in the world of Rivellon, Divinity Original Sin 2 takes place centuries after the original game to set you and a party of three others on a quest to become the region’s saviour. One of the most notable aspects is just how much freedom players have, with each party member able to roleplay as their preferred fantasy character. Elves, lizards, sorcerers and even undead humans are all playable.

    Divinity Original Sin 2 sees the story build itself around your personal decisions. Go anywhere, talk to anyone and interact with anything to form your own rewards and consequences. In terms of the multiplayer aspect, drop in/drop out co-op easily makes this one of the best 2 player PS4 games around. But why stop there? Up to four players can fight and explore side by side. If you’re looking for the ultimate co-operative game to get lost in on PS4, you can’t do much better.

    4. Far Cry 4

    While not the latest entry into Ubisoft’s wildly successful Far Cry series, Far Cry 4 represents a time when the series was at its peak, letting you and another player roam around the Himalayas in order to take down a sinister dictator causing a whole heap of trouble. In this case it’s Pagan Min, a natural successor to Far Cry 3’s Vaas who will taunt and disrupt you throughout this open-world adventure. Far Cry 4 still looks gorgeous to this day and is especially fun when experienced with a player two by your side.

    Far Cry 4 makes our list of the 10 best 2 player PS4 games because hunting exotic beasts and taking down outposts in online co-op simultaneously raises the stakes and makes events more thrilling. This multiplayer mode is explicitly called “Guns for Hire” and sees you and friend free to explore the luscious island of Kyrat, defeating enemies and infiltrating camps. Weapon variety is also top-notch, from assault rifles that deal excessive damage fast to grenade launchers and flamethrowers that further enables you and a partner to cause that trademark Far Cry chaos.

    3. Minecraft

    Quickly coming up on its 10-year anniversary, it might seem like an obvious candidate but Minecraft continues to inspire generations of creators via its addictive block-building gameplay. It’s remained a 2 player PS4 mainstay simply because you can create whatever you imagine, and doing so with a friend by your side acts as the perfect way to collaborate on an inventive level. Build whatever you want in Minecraft’s sandbox mode using endless resources. Or, alternatively, find out how long you can both last in the much more challenging survival mode.

    Minecraft as a series has seen various spin-offs by this point, but not one of them has managed to usurp the original game. That’s because 2 player PS4 games don’t get better than those that riff on your own imagination. You don’t even have to be a builder per se, but rather an explorer eager to set foot on other players’ servers to see what they have come u with. Whether you’re a PS4 player that wants to build, create or just plain witness, if you haven’t yet played Minecraft with a friend you’re likely missing out.

    2. Darksiders Genesis

    The most recent 2 player PS4 game on this list is also one of the best, not least because it excelled at taking an existing series and reformatting it to work for the co-operative format. Darksiders Genesis lets PS4 players fight across the realms of the underworld as a pair, with one playing as War and wrecking shop with his mighty chaoseater sword, while the other plays the long game as new horseman Strife who duel wields two powerful pistols.

    Darksiders Genesis differs from previous entries in that the action plays out entirely from a top-down point of view this time, making it easy for you and a friend to always keep an eye on what’s going on. You’ll take down legions of angels and demons, solve all manner of environmental puzzles and fight against screen-sized bosses, upgrading War and Strife so that they are almost unbeatable. As far as 2 player PS4 games go, Darksiders Genesis is a hellish romp.

    1. Borderlands 3

    Some looter-shooters may come and go, but for many, the uncontested king of the genre is the madcap Borderlands franchise. Having stayed dormant since 2014’s Pre-sequel on PS3, Borderlands 3 exploded back onto the scene earlier this year – bringing with it more guns, four new vault hunter classes and several cool ways for players to make this FPS adventure their own. What’s more, it retains split-screen co-op play as well as the ability to do so online.

    It doesn’t take long for Borderlands 3 to immerse you within a beautiful cell-shaded world, where every mission you play with friends makes you feel like you’re flicking through the pages of a real-life comic book. New villains The Calypso Twins will taunt you to no end throughout the story campaign, giving you all the motivation you need to take them down. Loot as many guns as possible and have fun doing it, all while having up to three other players fighting by your side.
