24 local multiplayer games to play with friends on PC

Games ultiplayer online PC are many. But those that allow you to play locally, oh, not so much. Yet they represent an important niche in the digital game worlds. After all, nothing is cooler than splitting the PC screen to play with friends! So if you want to know the best local multiplayer games for PC, stay with us in this text! See below 24 titles that will make you gather all the people in your house to spend hours in front of the screen!


No matter what version of FIFA you are playing with your friends. The good thing about this game is that any edition, be it the latest or the oldest, lets you play on the spot . Of course, it's always better to have the latest issue, because the casts are up to date and the gameplay is supposed to be better. In that sense, if you are a fan of football and your friends too, call everyone for a little game of FIFA in your home. It is even easier on the PC, as you can place adapters for multiple joysticks and play with up to four people at a time.

2. Stardew Valley

Independent simulator and RPG at the same time, Stardew Valley is the perfect game for those who like farm games. This game is visibly inspired by the classic Harvest Moon , created by a Harvest fan and developer . He developed it all by himself, trying to fill some gaps left by other titles in the genre. In Stardew Valley , therefore, you will find a gameplay with everything a farm requires: buying and raising animals, planting and harvesting, and even mining for materials to expand your farm . The coolest part of the game is that it can now be played in the cooperative. You can even form a family with another player by marrying, having children, and managing the family together.

3. The Escapists

Many think A Way Out , a game that puts two players on the run from prison, is a breakthrough. It is not! The Escapists came earlier, with the same proposal, and unites two players in a 2D environment to escape the jail. While not escaping, they need to manage their time in prison and plan their escape without getting into more trouble. The longer you and your friend are in prison, the more chances you have for your attributes to evolve. Strength, speed and intelligence are some of them. The game has several types of prisons, each with its own level of challenge. You can literally spend hours playing.

4. Mortal Kombat 11

The latest title from the most famous fighting franchise of all time could not be left out. Combat mechanics have been harnessed from MK X , but improved and tuned in some points. The game is highlighted, however, by having a new character customization system, as well as new fighters. The plot of the main mode is noteworthy as it features a new super villain, Kronika, that moves over time. That's why we have fighters from the past, like the late Shang-Tsung. Sheeva, Cyrax and Sektor join in and some new faces to brighten the scenes of blood and brutality. Needless to say, in battles against friends, fun is more than guaranteed.

5. Cuphead

Cuphead is so frantic that sometimes you don't even know what's happening on screen. Keep pushing the buttons and see what will give the action. This is even easier to do if played in local multiplayer mode . After all, two players can easily get confused by so much information by jumping on the screen. Anyway, that's really the idea of Cuphead . It's a platform run and gun where the sole objective is to eliminate enemies, defeat Bosses and recover your soul from a bet with the Devil. Easy to understand, but not so simple to do.

6. Rocket League

Rocket League has already ridden higher, but does not lose its majesty. It has gathered and still gathers loyal players who come together in online games to play soccer controlling cars. Although the hype is lower compared to local multiplayer , this game is really cool when you and your friends play matches with each other offline . But that's cooler after more car options are already released. Which unfortunately ends up requiring even more online matches .

7. Street Fighter V

Another fighting game that is indispensable for those who want to play with friends. Despite some bugs in the first months of release, SFV has won the hearts of fans and even those who are not adept at the franchise. It features a redesigned battle system and a narrative mode for the first time. For those who like local multiplayer is a great game. It also has a cross play version between PC and PlayStation 4. Good for when you get tired of beating friends and want a bigger challenge. Overall it has everything a Street Fighter fan needs: classic characters, insane combos and a jaw-dropping graphic. Remembering that SFV has received updates, in which players can buy new fighters for their collection.

8. Don't Starve Together

Don't Starve Together is an indie simulator , very well designed and developed. The mission is literally not to starve. Matches end when the last player dies and becomes a ghost. In multiplayer mode it 's more fun because having a friend's help can make things easier. Both must coordinate to gather resources, build shelters and escape the ghosts of other characters. They suck the vitality and sanity of their avatars , so it is best not to be soft and focused on teamwork.

9. Knight Squad

Knight Squad is a medieval element Bomberman that supports up to 8 players at a time. There are several game modes that put these players in arenas to accomplish goals. The most classic is Capture the Flag. The arenas are huge, allowing for longer matches depending on the purpose. It's nice that you can choose your warrior, and each one has his weapon and his armor.

10. Overcooked 2

Overcooked 2 is not just for kitchen lovers. It is also ideal for those who like frantic challenges to be accomplished before time runs out. In case here you must cook with your friends. This can be done on an ice river, on moving trucks or in a common kitchen. The big challenge is to deliver the ordered dishes on time, trying to overcome not only the clock but also physical obstacles. There are phases where half of the team is on one side of the kitchen and the other is on the other. And in the middle there is a barrier. It takes a lot of coordination for you and your friends not to let all the food fall to the floor.

11. Super Bomberman R

Speaking of Bomberman , Super Bomberman R is one of the latest franchise titles and one of the coolest. Campaign Mode can be played cooperatively, which makes the game even more fun. The gameplay style is very similar to the classic maze-level titles where you and your friend need to kill enemies.

12. Portal 2

Portal 2 is already a classic of exploration, action and puzzle games . It is developed by the same producer Half-Life , which makes this game in itself a genius. It's all about using your logical thinking to solve dozens of puzzles. The goal is to open portals to go to later stages. This is even more fun when you play with a friend. Everything gets easier this way, but at the same time harder if you two don't have much coordination together.

13. Plants vs. Garden Warfare Zombies 2

Not everyone knows, but Plants vs. Zombies has given rise to a bigger game and as insane as. Here you and your friend can play against each other or cooperatively, split screen. There are several characters to choose from, each with its own characteristics. The game is completely first-person shooter- style , and the idea is the same as the original games: mutant plants facing zombies.

14. Tekken 7

The Tekken franchise has been present in virtually every generation of video games. It was the first title to use the Unreal Engine 4 engine, which gave the game wonderful graphics. As for gameplay, new mechanics were introduced in the battles, but without losing the traditional concept of the series. What is striking even about Tekken 7 is the sheer amount of characters. It's over 30! So it is one of the best fighting titles for those who want to have fun with friends. There will certainly not be a match between two equal fighters.

15. Never Alone

Never Alone is a work of art style game. He is certainly the most unlike anyone on this list, as he intends to spread the culture of the Iñupiaq people, who have inhabited Alaska since prehistory. This game brings several historical references of this people, with religious symbolism, very similar to Journey . It can be played cooperatively. One player picks a little girl while the other gets a white fox. Both must solve puzzles while exploring the Iñupiaq ancestry.

16. Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris can be considered one of the most different in the franchise. Firstly because it brings an isometric perspective, in Diablo style . It is also cooperative, allowing players to control not only the famous Lara, but also her rival Carter Bell. Another fun point of this game is that you will get help from two Egyptian gods: Horus and Isis. Together you four must resurrect Osiris to prevent your brother Seth from controlling the whole world.

17. Jamestown +

Jamestown + is very Atari, Mega Drive and Nintendinho, with simple 2D graphics. And he's a little ship, similar to Space Invaders . In other words, it is the perfect recipe for the nostalgic to spend hours and hours playing this title. The game supports up to 4 players in 7 stages with many battles around the planet Mars. Altogether there are 8 exclusive ships, which offer 40 different battle styles.

18. Battleborn

Anyone who likes games like Dota and League of Legends will feel familiar with Battleborn . It is a shooter , which unites several heroes in battle arenas. They must work together to defeat minions and a giant robot who is the boss of each level. Nothing very innovative, but it sure guarantees fun. If you want, you and a friend can face the main campaign together.

19. Child of Light

Another game of art you need to play. He follows the beautiful story of Aurora. She died and woke up in a world apart, Lemuria. In this "world of the dead" Aurora needs to recover the stars, the moon and the sun, which are in the hands of the Queen of the Night. Only in this way can she come back to life. Lemuria's world is full of secrets, fierce enemies and puzzles to solve. The game's look is beautiful, well designed, and being able to play it in co-op mode makes it even more interesting.

20. Titan Quest

RPG lovers definitely need to play Titan Quest . It's a game that resembles the Diablo franchise , mainly because you command a warrior who must face dozens of beasts out there. I mean, nothing around: Greece, Ancient Egypt, Asia and other regions of the world. There are many historical references for you to discover. The game is a bit old from 2006, so don't expect too elaborate graphics. But facing mythological creatures and giant titans alongside a friend makes up for any problems in this regard.

21. How to Survive 2

Survival games in a post-apocalyptic zombie world are nothing new. But How to Survive 2 can be a different take if you bet on cooperative multiplayer . The idea is to survive on an island full of brain eaters. For this you and your friend must collect resources, build defenses and kill as many zombies as you can.

22. Brawlhalla

Brawlhalla is a kind of fighting game with some platform elements. Here you choose one warrior and fight another or other warriors in a small arena. She has some platforms for the characters to stay on as they battle. The goal is to take down the enemies of these spaces and make them fall into the abyss. Win who kills the most enemies at the end of "x" time. During battles, random weapons appear in the arena, giving the characters more attack power. It can be played both locally and online.

23. Worms Armageddon

Worms Armageddon is one of the best little guerrilla games. He's from the 90's, but worth every penny spent. Mainly because the game's online servers are still updated. That is: tired of beating your friends, you can go for an experience that offers more adrenaline. Well, this Worms is all we already know. The worms are armed to the teeth (if they had teeth, of course), with grenades, knives, flamethrowers dozens of ways to kill their enemies. Use creativity to choose your favorite method of murder and go to battle arenas.

24. Forza Motorsport 7

Of course on the list could not miss a racing game. Forza Motorsport 7 was chosen because it is one of the largest racing games for PC. There are more than 700 cars, 32 track locations and over 200 different settings to race. You can spend several hours of the weekend with friends vying for first place.
