Games have started becoming an integral part of people's lives as they provide a perfect platform for friends to bond. There are a lot of multiplayer games from various genres that can be enjoyed on your phone, including co-op and PvP games. So here's a list of the 5 best multiplayer games that you can enjoy with friends and family.
1. Among Us
Most of you probably already know about Among Us, which was one of the best and most exciting multiplayer mobile games in 2020, but players still love it quite a bit today. What happens in the game is that many players are present in a lobby waiting to be assigned as either crewmate or imposter. Players who are imposters try to finish off the whole crew, thereby claiming dominance over the ship, while the crewmates must work together to find the imposter while completing certain tasks.
The best part is you have access to all the game’s nooks and crannies, allowing for plenty of customisation. You can also customise your character with items that you can buy. Add-ons can be bought via in-app purchases. A bit of violence when an impostor kills a crewmate makes it kid-unfriendly but it can still be enjoyed by the majority.
2. Call of Duty: Mobile
Call of Duty has always been an anticipated game for players due to the PC and console version's extraordinary popularity. It's a generational game where players keep playing the game for years and years to come with each new addition to the franchise.
Call of Duty: Mobile is the newest multiplayer game on the list because, of course, who wouldn't love having Call of Duty at their fingertips. As you might have guessed, it's an FPS with various multiplayer modes. The entire franchise is based around multiplayer, so, of course, the mobile version also has it..
The multiplayer modes include classic Call of Duty Deathmatches as seen in the original title and a 100 player lobby Battle Royale mode also available in games like PUBG Mobile and Fortnite. If you have followed all the Call of Duty games, you will definitely love playing this one.
3. Crossy Road
Crossy Road is an arcade game where your main objective is to cross many roads and streams without killing yourself. It includes different playable characters and also a local multiplayer mode. You and your friends can connect to a nearby WiFi network and then play together in a hosted game. The player limit is two to four. But the best part is, it is family-friendly and an enjoyable way to pass the time..
Most players probably already know that Minecraft is one of the most famous multiplayer games of all time across all platforms. In it, you are dropped into a random world that the game generates, and then you are free to do whatever you want.
One of the best things about Minecraft is that it features cross-play with the Xbox One and PC. This enables everyone to play from anywhere, which is very convenient. The game has three modes that can be explored.They are survival, realms, and creative.
In creative mode, you are immortal and cannot die. In survival mode, you have to deal with bad guys, a food mechanism, and you can die in a variety of ways, such as falling too far. Also, there are many character customisation options available, which makes it even more exciting to play.
5. Pokemon Go
Pokemon Go is also among the most popular multiplayer games for mobile. Players travel in the real world searching for Pokemon, gym battles, and PokeStops to refill essential items. The game has both single-player and multiplayer. But gym battles, trainer battles, and just playing them with groups of people is possible. With time, the player base has become smaller, but still, there are a lot of active players. You can even make friends using these friend codes.
