Grab a friend and enjoy the best co-op games the PC has to offer.

The best co-op games for PC in 2021


This relaxing, but punishing PvE camping trip to Viking purgatory will never let you starve, and you'll never need to pay to repair items. All the busywork is gone, replaced by a gorgeous, threatening world.


Phasmophobia has become a serious co-op hit. Armed with ghost-hunting tools like EMF readers, flashlights, salt, and crucifixes, it's your team's job to bust spooks while your nerves get shredded.
