What are the best PS4 online multiplayer games? If you're a PS Plus member, you have access to a huge library of online games, from football with cars to constantly changing shooters. It can be tough to decide what to play with so many options, so we've compiled a list of what we believe are the best online games you can play on PS4.
Respawn's fast-paced FPS is often celebrated for its single player campaign, but just as entertaining is the brilliant online multiplayer. Players start off as agile soldiers, but after a while, they're able to call down a Titan, a giant mech suit with high firepower and some fun abilities. The combination of the nimble, wall-running Pilots and the hulking, powerful Titans makes for some cracking online battles.

Dragon Ball FighterZ had some teething issues with its online multiplayer, but now it's one of the PS4's most robust brawlers when it comes to throwing down on a global scale. All the usual ranked and casual options are here, but they're bolstered by limited time events and even co-op battles. A lovely little lobby system, complete with collectable chibi character avatars, is the icing on the cake.
Solid netcode and a very healthy playerbase ensure that Street Fighter V is one of the PS4's go-to fighting games for those eager to test their skills online. Fully customisable lobbies, quickfire ranked matches, and an addictive title ladder to climb make the multiplayer component an inviting prospect.
17. Destiny 2 (PS4)
Destiny 2, like its predecessor, has walked a rocky path, but Bungie has brought the online shooter to a good place after some hefty gameplay changes and expansions. Hopping into the game to tackle some raids and other challenges with your buddies remains an entertaining pastime, with the promise of bigger and better loot always keeping you going.
16. FIFA 19 (PS4)
You can always count on FIFA to provide a substantial online offering. Coupled with the game's suite of local multiplayer options – including this year’s array of excellent party games – you simply can't go wrong when it comes to a game of virtual footie with your mates. Whether you’re building an unstoppable squad in Ultimate Team or leveraging the human cheat mode Cristiano Ronaldo in a not-so-friendly, EA Sports’ soccer sim ranks for its sheer wealth of options alone.
