These games prove that misery truly loves company.
Ah, the act of surviving together. There’s nothing better than foraging, creating a base together and building a thriving community…before it all comes apart from death, disease or zombies. Even with all the terrible things that can happen, survival games are still immensely popular and have some of the most dedicated fan bases out there. Let’s take a look at 15 of the best survival games worth playing in co-op.
Don’t Starve Together
Expanding upon Klei Entertainment’s excellent survival experience, Don’t Starve Together is more than just the base game with co-op mechanics. It offers three modes – Survival, which turns dead players into ghosts that drain the sanity of the living; Wilderness, which puts each player in a random location; and Endless, where players can respawn endlessly. With its plethora of content – from DLC like Reign of Giants, Shipwrecked and Hamlet to new characters and free updates – Don’t Starve Together remains one of the premiere multiplayer survival experiences.
