Everyone likes to play their favorite game with their friends. It's no wonder that multiplayer games are very successful among players. Who has a PlayStation 4, for example, has good titles in this sense. That's why we bring in this article some of the best multiplayer games for PS4.
Some of the titles are more focused on the online experience. Others, in turn, bet on good old local multiplayer. Regardless of the way cooperation or confrontation occurs in these games, fun is more than guaranteed.
1. GTA V Online
For starters, you have a lot of freedom to customize your avatar. Gender, skin color, clothes, tattoos, haircut: practically everything can be edited in GTA V Online. Once in the game, the character editing options, as well as the acquisition of items, such as weapons, are many, maybe even more than in the campaign mode.
The same can be said of cars. All campaign models are on Online, in addition to there are special and specific vehicles, which can only be obtained in multiplayer mode. Rockstar has spared no effort when it comes to sending DLCs and other additional content, some free, to its loyal players.
Of course Fortnite couldn't be missing from the list. One of the most famous and played Battle Royales at the moment, it is a very fun game for anyone who is a fan of the genre. It has only two game modes, which are quite different from each other, although they use the same game mechanics and have the same graphics specifications. And the main one, of course, is Battle Royale!
In this mode, up to 100 players are placed on a map, divided into two teams. Each player arrives on the map without any weapons or items. You need to find resources, items and any objects that allow you to attack enemy players and, of course, survive them.

3. Battlefield 1
The Battlefield series is one of the most successful war-themed game franchises, with Call of Duty as its main competitor. Despite the dispute between both franchises, it is Battlefield that brings the best online and multiplayer experience, especially when we talk about Battlefield 1.
Compared to previous games, this is the one that brings a more robust multiplayer mode. There are 10 game modes, with 4 infantry classes available, 3 vehicle-focused and 5 more elite classes. Like GTA V Online, Battlefield 1's co-op mode is almost a game on its own.
4. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
Finally, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. Despite the many complaints about Ubisoft's servers, this game is still a heavyweight title in terms of multiplayer. So much so that, like other games on the list, it has already been elevated to the e-sports category.
The mission is simple: you take on one of the members of the Rainbow team, made up of counter-terrorist agents. There are more than twenty agents at your disposal to choose from, with unique skills, weapons and characteristics. The game works in rounds, which are short, fast and intense.
The maps are made so that the player feels confined and really feels obliged to go into combat. At the same time, players are encouraged to communicate with each other in order to devise the best strategy to survive the rounds. When a player dies, he cannot resurrect himself, but he can resurrect other fallen agents on his team.
Rocket League became a success at the time of its release because it provided a unique experience until then: playing football with cars. Even though it currently has lost some of its players, as other multiplayers have gained space, it is still a game that is very worth playing with friends.
Each team has two to four players. Among several vehicle models, you choose yours, according to your preference for speed, acceleration, among other specifications. Each car can be modified in appearance as you progress through game modes.
Another multiplayer shooter that is very successful on the PS4 is Overwatch. It is completely in first person and offers a game experience based on cooperation between players. All game modes have twelve players, who are divided into two teams of six characters.
Each player must choose their hero before entering a match. There are currently thirty heroes available. They fall into three main classes: Offensive, Support, and Tank. The offensive is the one that has the most heroes. They have a lot of damage, but little defense. They are the ones who go to the front lines of the teams.
Like Rocket League and Fortnite, Overwatch has become an esports phenomenon. There are many competitions all over the world. Despite several controversies related to the game, mainly to do with sexism and machismo, many players still have fun with it in its many online maps.
7. Diablo III
While Diablo III can be played alone, it's much more fun with friends. This is the ease that the arrival of the title on consoles brought. On PlayStation 4 it runs like a charm, with no drop in frames, even if you and three other friends explore all the corners of the Sanctuary together.
Overall, the local multiplayer experience is very satisfying. Even if sometimes you and your friends get lost in the scenery, in the face of so much beating, lightning and magic. Still, it's much easier to face powerful opponents by strategically coordinating attacks.
Diablo III brings to PS4 the good times when exploration games with local multiplayer were common. This makes the experience even more brilliant in a game that is fantastic in its own right. That's why if you're looking for a good RPG that you can share with friends, this will certainly be the best choice you can make.
8 Apex Legends
Apex Legends has arrived against Fortnite. Despite having lost a bit of the hype, it remains one of the great Battle Royales for PS4. Being played in teams, it becomes even more fun, requiring a level of cooperation that few games of the genre require. Which makes it a challenging game.
It's a fast, intense game with mechanics that mix elements from genres such as RPG and shooter. It's really worth it if you want a "more adult" Battle Royale, with varied weapon options and focused on teamwork.
9. Dead by Daylight
Dead by Daylight is for those who are passionate about horror movies. If you want to know what it's like to feel the adrenaline of running away from a serial killer, this game is for you. The system is simple: there are five players online, four of which have to survive, while one is responsible for murdering the others.
Macabre or not, the game experience is fantastic. Whoever controls the killer has a first-person perspective. Whoever runs away, is in third. There are up to 17 Survivors, and each of the four-player team will take on one of them. As for serial killers, there are 15 that can be chosen.
The game scheme was designed to create a feeling of desperation. To escape the confined area, the survivors have two chances. The first one consists of repairing generators that are on the map. There is always one more generator in relation to the number of session survivors.
This game is one of the best multiplayer games on PlayStation 4. Due to the setting, which puts players in the midst of classic horror movies, such as Nightmare Time, the game mechanics, the objectives, it is one of the most fun games to play with friends.
10. For Honor
For Honor may even have a single-player campaign mode, but the multiplayer is where the biggest fun of this game is. In case you didn't know, this game puts the player in typically medieval settings. There are three factions that must fight each other for victory, each with specific skills and weapons: they are the vikings, the samurai and the medieval European knights.
Within each faction there are still several classes. This allows the player to find their own combat style within what the game offers. For Honor's multiplayer mode offers a variety of gameplay options. The most common, Skirmish, places up to 8 players in two teams of four.
Each team is accompanied by a series of other AI-controlled fighters. Each round consists of eliminating as many enemies as possible until a certain amount of points is reached.
Titanfall 2 is a first-person shooter focused on a futuristic theme. You control a "pilot" of giant machines, the Titans. During the game there is a bar that needs to be filled, and when this occurs your Titan descends from the skies and starts to help you in the fight against enemies.
There are more than 10 online game modes, so you'll have plenty to do in Titanfall 2. From the classic "catch the flag" to the Coliseum, where you and other players fight each other in life and death battles. Or you can simply play in Pilot vs. Pilot, in which no Titans can be summoned.
In case you get tired of playing online, Titanfall 2 has an exemplary campaign, very well built and that further expands the game's universe.
12. Monster Hunter: World
Monster Hunter: World quickly won the hearts of players. Hunting monsters on an island, which is a huge open world and full of different landscapes, fauna and flora, is a fantastic experience. Even more than all this can be done in the company of friends or other strangers.
If you want a challenging multiplayer, Monster Hunter has all the elements for it. If you download the expansion, Iceborne, you will have an even larger portion of creatures. There are, in total, at least more than 30 monsters that you must hunt. And it's not just throwing a sword and that's it: everyone needs study, strategy and patience.
So, if you're looking for an online game with a LOT to do, welcome to Monster Hunter: World.
13. The Last of Us Remastered
The Last of Us is not "only" one of the best single players ever created. The online mode is of high quality and even today it gathers many players in its game rooms. Basically, you will be part of a team, which must face another in one of the various scenarios of the main campaign.
The pacing isn't as frantic as it would be in, say, Raibow Six Siege. However, it is very tactical, requiring you to carefully choose the weapon you will play with and the way you will move through the scenarios.
Also, The Last of Us multiplayer will be much more impactful if you play with friends on the same team. Playing alone is cool, but it doesn't have the same feeling and adrenaline as getting together and forming a team.
14. Injustice 2
Injustice 2 is one of the best fighting games today. It has tons of content, apart from the extras, that you can buy little by little. Each character has a really unique fighting style, which matches the style of the players. So it's not enough to choose your favorite DC character if she doesn't "match" your way of fighting.
The online mode is robust and solid, with matches that respect the levels of each player. So you won't have to meet the high level junkies if you're not ready for it.
15. FIFA 19/20
FIFA is one of the best multiplayer games on PS4. Whether it's edition 20 or the previous edition, 19, you have several opportunities and game modes to have fun with friends in disputed matches. There is Pro Clubs mode, Ultimate Team, Seasons and VOLTA Football.
Only then can you spend hours and hours playing games with friends or with unknown opponents. If you're competitive and you like the idea of climbing the rankings of the best players, FIFA is ideal for that. Even more, the game has a very strong competition scenario, with national and world championships, which reward big names with money.
In short: FIFA speaks for itself. And even if you get bored of playing it in online mode, there's plenty of local option to play with friends and humiliate them with dribbles, goals and celebrations!

16. A Way Out
A Way Out is an exclusively multiplayer game. There is no single player campaign as the intention is for you to play someone locally or online. In third person, it puts both players in control of Leo and Vincent. Both sentenced to prison, they need to help each other escape, using creative strategies to escape from jail.
Leo and Vincent meet in the prison cafeteria, when Leo suffers an attempted murder. Vincent tries to help, and they both end up in the infirmary. Once there, they start a partnership to try to escape from jail. It is, therefore, a very different game from the other titles on the list, since there are no teams fighting each other, but a true narrative played by two players.
17. The Forest
The Forest has you and up to 3 other players on a quest to rescue your lost son. In a forest. With cannibals on the loose. Having to gather resources and supplies, in addition to having to make weapons to defend against this tribe and other dangers of this wild place.
This survival is one of the best of the genre on PS4. And we want you to be able to play it with friends, albeit online, of course, because the constant tension is much more fun and interesting if shared with people we know.
18. Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled
Couldn't miss a racing game, right? And Crash Team Racing is one of the most fun when it comes to multiplayer! It's a remake of the PlayStation version, and remains, guess what, pretty hard to master. But this is a feature of all Crash games.
So just a few races are enough for you to learn to master the game's drifting system, which can cause that discord between the group of friends and family!
Tekken 7 is simpler than Injustice 2 and easier to play. The mechanics don't require you to pay attention to powers, armor or items to improve your fighter. It's getting on the scene, giving the opponent that beating and that's it. Press all the buttons at the same time and you'll have a smashing combo (or not).
The game is fun online, but especially for those who have been following the franchise for a long time. The classic characters are there, as are their moves. If you want, the single player campaign mode is interesting, although it doesn't make that much sense in terms of narrative. It's an easy game for those who don't want to think too much.
Warframe lets you control a robot ninja. An unlikely mix, but it worked very well. Mainly because you travel to distant planets and galaxies, eliminating enemies, obtaining weapons and armor. Playing in partnership is important, because it takes time to have a strong character capable of going on missions alone.
The game is free to play, so you must imagine that evolving is not the easiest thing. To stop being a weak ninja robot you will have to kill a lot of enemies, work hard, redo missions and do as much loot as you can. But it ends up being worth it, and it is not necessary to pay to improve your avatar.
