Best Online Games to Play With Friends

RPGs and Hack-and-slashers

Divinity: Original Sin 2

Available on: PC, PS4, Xbox One

We loved playing this game with our friends because first – Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the best RPG ever and second because the story is so great we could not stop playing even after hours of completing quests and defeating monsters in turn-based fights. The combos are insane and you’ll surely annoy one of your friends after electrocuting him “by mistake.”

Diablo 3

Available on: PC, Xbox One, PS4, Nintendo Switch

If you played Torchlight or Path of Exile, ten you surely know how great the Diablo series is. The oldest hack-and-slash game ever, the latest Diablo installment feels like it was released yesterday – although it’s been eight years since it got launched. The game is addictive enough single player, so imagine how awesome it is with a bunch of friends! You get to choose from seven different classes and fight over legendary loot.

Minecraft Dungeons

Available on: Xbox One, PS4, Switch, PC

Minecraft Dungeons is a great game to play with your friends, so as long as you’re into hack-and-slash and you’re also a Minecraft fan, then this game is surely meant for you. Even for those that haven’t played this genre, Minecraft Dungeons is easy to understand. The game also has the first DLC out.

Other similar games: Path of Exile, Warhammer: Chaosbane, Warhammer 40,000 Inquisitor – Martyr, Grim Dawn.

Among Us

Available on: PC, iOS, Android

Playing Among Us with friends is always fun, and very easy to understand, even if you’re not an experienced gamer. Among Us has recently become very popular since it got streamed on Twitch. From having around 100 players a day, it now has around 200,000 daily players. Among Us can be played in 4 to 10 players and it’s a deduction game. Players that get to be crewmembers must complete tasks – if you complete them all, you win. However, there’s at least an imposter “among you” that will try to sabotage and kill as many crewmembers as possible without being spotted.

Monster Hunter: World

Available on: PC, PS4, Xbox One

This is a game where you should expect a lot of grind, but it’s fun with friends and getting so much loot from monsters to upgrade your gear will definitely be addictive. With the latest Iceborne expansion, there is a lot of content to go through, and with an Xbox Game Pass, Monster Hunter: World is free.


Available on: Xbox One, PS4, PC, Switch, iOS, Android

What do we love about Minecraft? Why, building stuff, of course. We gathered our friends and got to build a castle with an underground dungeon! And thanks to the cross-play support, everyone can play Minecraft, no matter what device they use. If you think you’ll get easily bored in Minecraft, think again!

Sea of Thieves

Available on: Xbox One, PC

This action-adventure game requires you to interact with other players to sail your boat and stand a chance when you face other ships. You’ll need to use a headset to chat with your friends and coordinate your moves. Sea of Thieves is one of the best pirate games you can enjoy with your friends.

Forza Horizon 4

Available on: Xbox One, PC

We thought racing cars is also fun with friends. It’s obvious why Forza Horizon 4 is a great game to play with your friends – you get to crash into them and beat them in different races. What other reasons do you need?

Other exciting games that can be played online with friends are Red Dead Online, Civilization 6, FIFA 20, Overwatch, Warframe, GTA Online, Rocket League, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Destiny 2.
