Top Multiplayer Games For 2020

Life has become a little different in 2020, with social distancing and self-isolation becoming a reality for most around the world. The good news is there are plenty of ways you can get together safely with family and friends thanks to technology. Multiplayer games are a great way to connect and have some fun in the process – and there are a lot of them out there to choose from.

Let’s take a look at some of the best options out in 2020:

FIFA Soccer

No matter what device you prefer to play on, this game has a version for you. It can be played on your smartphone or on an Xbox, and just about every option for gaming in between. It’s no wonder that the game is so popular.

The most recent version of the game has over 650 events that you can choose from, meaning there are a lot of options for gaming. You can also go head-to-head and play your team versus someone else’s team. Alternatively, you can build entire teams and assign a player to each person in your group – it’s like playing real 11-aside football but online in the virtual space.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons

OK, this one is only for the Nintendo lovers, but it is a good one. It’s like the Sims but with animals instead. Be careful – it can be very addictive and totally engrossing. It’s also fun for the entire family to play.

The game is a great one for families or friend groups that are spread out and are unable to gather together in person at the moment. You can all get together on your digital island and build up this world as a team. It’s definitely the new, 2020 version of hanging out.

Call Of Duty

With this game, you can go for the classic version or you can get the free mobile version that has almost all of the same features as the main game. If you love first-person shooter games and enjoy a wartime setting, this is the right choice for your multiplayer fix.

There are so many levels, maps and scenarios to choose from in this game. It’s been around since 2003, so the developers have had plenty of time to come up with new ideas to integrate and to perfect everything in the game. You also have a great in-game chat feature that allows you to communicate with your teammates.

Grand Theft Auto 5

When you go online with GTA 5, you open up a whole world of storylines that are ideal for multiplayer setups. You get the same rush and fix that you’d get from  need for speed, plus you get to add in the bonus of trolling and ragging on your friends who are playing with you.

Storylines for the online version of GTA 5 include the usual prison breaks and bank heists and high-speed chases. You also get multiplayer races and death matches that are so much better when you’re playing against another person.
