Best Online Multiplayer Games on PS5

Best PS5 Online Multiplayer Games Guide 1

What are the best online multiplayer games on PS5? We’ve been enjoying games together online for a long time now, and these connected experiences are more popular and varied than ever. There are so many online games to play on PS5, but we need your help in finding the best of the bunch.

Whether they’re competitive or cooperative, playing online games is a brilliant way to engage with friends and other like-minded players. The most popular online multiplayer titles tend to be shooters, such as Fortnite and Call of Duty: Vanguard. However, the range of online experiences is much broader than just that, appealing to all kinds of tastes.

Racing games like Gran Turismo 7 also have very popular online multiplayer modes, as do sports titles such as FIFA 22. While these types of experiences have endured for years, more modern games use online multiplayer to present more unusual options. Fall Guys turns platforming party games into a competition, for instance, while Knockout City offers a unique spin on dodgeball. The variety is pretty crazy.

That’s before we look at the more co-op oriented games, too. It Takes Two works wonderfully online, Overcooked: All You Can Eat is a treat, and Death Stranding Director’s Cut offers an asynchronous online experience to get players working together.

Anyway, what we’re saying is there are hundreds of PS5 games featuring online multiplayer of some kind, and we need your help to find the best. Yep — the Push Square community will be deciding which games appear on this list, and in what order. Using the user rating system, you can directly impact how this list of games looks.
