Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode may have usurped its co-operative nuts and bolts, but there’s still a lot to like about Epic Games’ long overdue construction combat game when you’re playing alongside pals. While the gameplay largely resembles your standard four-player Horde mode, the building element adds an extra strategic layer to the third-person action.

Release Date: 23rd Mar 2018 (USA) / 23rd Mar 2018 (UK/EU)

This new adventure game from the creator of Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons is a purely co-operative experience, and requires two players either online or on the couch. Starring two prisoners, Leo and Vincent, you and a friend will be busting out of prison and embarking on a quest for revenge. The constantly shifting split screen gives the game a unique look, while the variety of scenarios where you need to work together results in a highly entertaining experience.

The brilliantly simple concept of Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime is this: you and your friends need to pilot a circular spaceship in order to restore love to the galaxy. Doing so is more complicated, of course, with each player needing to take control of one aspect of the ship’s controls; one driving, one on the shield, and two on guns, for example. Making your way through the game’s randomly generated levels requires true teamwork, making it a more than worthy entry on our list.

Two of the previous generation’s most popular coop titles collated in one spruced-up package, between Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, compilation Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is packing hundreds of hours of top-tier PvE entertainment. Until Borderlands 3 rolls around, this is one of the better co-op shooters on PS4.

You can play Divinity 2 alone, but playing co-op with a friend is a far more enjoyable time. This vast RPG is chock-full of crazy characters, interesting locales, and challenging, turn-based combat that two players can both fully engage with. Neat design features like the screen splitting seamlessly when you separate or debating during conversations make this deep RPG an engaging game for both players.
