In­vite your mates over and have a blast

A Way Out

You’ll need to work with a friend to break out of prison in A Way Out – whether that means play­ing ‘good cop, bad cop’ with an AI char­ac­ter or dis­tract­ing a guard to steal use­ful items. But while the co-op ac­tion is good fun, it’s the in­ter­weav­ing story that will leave a last­ing mem­ory. £26 / PS4, Xbox One, PC

Gang Beasts

Star­ring spongy, Clay­ma­tion-like sack fight­ers, Gang Beasts de­fines dumb fun. You’ll brawl with up to four play­ers on a Fer­ris wheel, atop mov­ing trucks, and in other hi­lar­i­ously danger­ous set­tings, as the dopey-look­ing he­roes bash each other to a pulp. £14.99 / PS4, PC

Over­cooked

Any chef will tell you that work­ing in a busy restau­rant is the ul­ti­mate test of team­work. So just imag­ine what it’s like in the co-op ti­tle Over­cooked, where kitchen floors are cov­ered in slip­pery ice or sep­a­rated by su­per-hot magma. £12.99 / PS4, Switch, Xbox One, PC

Pit Peo­ple

From the cre­ators of Cas­tle Crash­ers comes another crazy mul­ti­player gem. And it’s not just the art­work and mad­cap char­ac­ters that are bonkers here, as the co-op story mode for this turn-based strat­egy can get re­ally chaotic. £15.49 / Xbox One, PC

Tow­er­fall As­cen­sion

is 2D bat­tle-royale ar­row blitzer may look sim­ple on the sur­face with its retro graph­ics, but the ca­pa­bil­ity to catch ar­rows in mid-air or use ex­plo­sive traps adds a layer of may­hem-in­fused depth and fran­tic fun. £10.99 / PS4, Xbox One, PC

Nid­hogg 2

e premise of this game is sim­ple – just reach the other side of the map. Prob­lem is, your pal’s block­ing your path, so nat­u­rally you’ve got to stick it to them with your blade. Cue tightly fought tug-of-war du­els and mul­ti­ple de­cap­i­tated car­toon char­ac­ters. £10.99 / PS4, PC
