Here are the six best co-op games on Xbox Game Pass. These are brilliant and fun video games you can play with your friends and family. This list is ranked in no particular order. Play the game that suits you best!
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
Halo: Master Chief Collection is not only a game with great multiplayer and great campaigns but a pack that contains five classic games. It’s my personal favorite game to play with a friend; it’s really fresh and fun to experience the iconic levels again with friends. You can tactically take down enemies and seek hidden details on the levels together. And you can also try various tactics to spice up the gameplay. Almost every single mission on every game in the collection can be played with a friend. Plus, it’s a great way to unlock achievements and try out the highest-difficulty modes with Skulls enabled.
Unlike the above game, Stardew Valley is a lighthearted life simulator game that is really fun with a friend. You can work together to create the perfect farm. Exploring the richly detailed map is joyous. The daily tasks are very easy and fun to complete with a friend, and you can have most of the day to yourselves after taking care of the chores early. It’d be a really wholesome gaming experience for you and your friends.
Minecraft is one of the best games out there. Its player base is still going strong with new content added all the time like the Batman DLC and Avatar Legends DLC. You can take on the often overwhelming sandbox world with a friend to amp up the fun. You can plan together and build the perfect settlement that suits both of you. And the survival mechanics will be less frustrating and even more rewarding with a friend.
A Way Out
A Way Out is a co-op-only game with a beautiful story and memorable moments all throughout. It’s a story-based game. So it will not take more than 10 hours to complete, max. You can choose one of two characters and play through the game. There are intense gameplay moments and it’ll definitely be a wonderful experience, although we should note that this is intended for a more mature audience.
Sea of Thieves
Sea of Thieves is another game with a beautiful and unique art style, like Minecraft and Stardew Valley. In my opinion, games like this (which are lighthearted and not story-heavy) are so much more enjoyable with friends. You can become pirates and rule the seas with powerful ships and a crew. Exploring islands is so enjoyable as well and Sea of Thieves is considered one of the best co-op games on Game Pass.
Back 4 Blood
You can join a group of friends and fight through waves of grotesque enemies in this spiritual successor to the acclaimed Left 4 Dead franchise. The gameplay possibilities are endless with many weapons to choose from and various playstyles. Truly, Back 4 Blood is best experienced with friends. You really should give this a try. It does have its fair share of issues, but the game will be improved in the future, surely.
