Best Co-op Multiplayer Game of 2015

Which game in 2015 provided the best co-op experience?

Posted By | On 25th, Dec. 2015 Under Feature

It’s been a rather strange year for co-op titles, primarily because of the obsession with Halo 5: Guardians not supporting local split-screen co-op support. That strange bit aside, this year was as strong for co-op titles as it was for competitive multiplayer, even if some of the offerings didn’t quite meet our lofty expectations. For the first time, major franchises like Call of Duty and Halo began to build their campaigns around co-op. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six team returned to deliver some good ol’ fashioned terrorist hunt and Evolve presented a rather quirky mix of co-op and competitive shooting with its 4 vs. 1 dynamic. What eventually won our award for best co-op multiplayer in 2015? Let’s find out.


  • Bloodborne
  • Evolve
  • Call of Duty Black Ops 3
  • Halo 5 Guardians
  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

Winner: Bloodborne


From Software’s Souls games may not seem like it but they’re excellent co-op games when you’re down for some shared suffering. Bloodborne is no exception and its excellent campaign is only augmented by the number of friends that join you. To further add to this are the Chalice Dungeons – randomly generated dungeons full of all manner of beasties that test your mettle. What better past-time could you think of then hopping in with two friends and being scared by the villainous beings of the darkness together?

Though it takes some time to get used to the items required for co-op – not to mention the search parameters that take your level into account and setting up passwords and whatnot – Bloodborne is a rewarding, fun experience with friends. Heck, its co-op may very well be the best way to break your first-time friends into the game. And if you have no one to play with, you can randomly go about helping other players with their trials and tribulations.

    Best Co-op Multiplayer Game of 2015: Halo 5
    Seriously Blodborne?!? NO

      While I feel Bloodborne seems to have some good co-op because of the procedural generation dungeons, for me Halo 5 co-op is simply the best

      Of course. Because you’re a Microsoft fanboy drone.

    • Mark

      Of course. What else would I be?! An Xbox owner who prefers Halo online?

  • XbotMK1

    Yes, I agree 100%. The souls games have an amazing multiplayer. Co op and Pvp.

    It’s a souls game, after all. well deserved.

    But I wouldn’t advise anyone to buy a PlayStation because of co-op games, cause Sony was never very fond of this feature… Just look at its exclusive games. All 2016 games announced so far won’t feature co-op.

    Microsoft, on the other hand, focuses a lot on it. Fable, halo, gears, scalebound, sea of thieves, sunset overdrive, dead rising…

      Yeah to be honest, almost all Xbox exclusives support multiplayer and co-op on dedicated servers..Microsoft really wants us on Live Gold lol. I love the service tho.

      Being a long time fan of coop games I feel at home with a Xbox One
