2020 PC Coop Games

Welcome the definitive listing of all the cooperative oriented PC video games for 2020!
This list will be continuously updated throughout the year.

Coop list for a different year 

The games on this list, must meet the following criteria:

  • PvE - Player vs Environment
  • Online, split screens limited
  • Available/announced for PC
  • Involve 2 or more human players
  • Players must work along a progressive storyline, campaign, or various goals
  • Generic RTS Skirmishes and Team based game types like CTF and Deathmatch are not included
  • No MMOs (game must have a conclusion or set goal)
  • Greenlight & Early Access games are generally not listed unless intent for release is stated
  • I'll be subjective with Survival/Horde modes as the genera has matured a bit. However, most are slapped-on after thoughts and not list worthy.


Deep Rock Galactic - 4 player 
Metacritic - 85 ]
Space dwarves mining for loot in this L4D like game where you run and gun to survive hordes of underground nasties. 
Resident Evil Resistance  - 4 player
[ Metacritic - 64 ] 
L4D clone in the Resident Evil Universe.
Serious Sam 4 - 4 player
[ Metacritic - 64 ]
Over the top shooter, with 100,000 simultaneous things to shoot at.


Wasteland 3 - 2 player
Metacritic - 85 ]
Taking a hint from how Divinity handles coop, Wastelands hopes for similar success.
Godfall - 4 player
[ Metacritic - 61 ]
Fantasy 3rd person aRPG by Boarderland creators - Gearbox.
Zombie Army 4: Dead War - 4 player
[ Metacritic - 74 ] 
Spinoff from Sniper Elite, ZA4 gives a massive amount of killing methods to remove the WWII zombie hoards.

Darksiders Genesis - 2 player
Metacritic - 77 ]
An aRPG, more of a Tomb Raider and Guardian of Light vibe then Diablo.
Minecraft Dungeons - 4 player
[ Metacritic - 74 ] 
aRPG with Mincraft graphics.  More of a scaled down aRPG, then anything else to do with Minecraft.  


Iron Harvest - 2 player
Metacritic - 75 ]
A classic steampunk take at WWI.   Coop added post launch allows campaign contoll of any character on the field, which could get messy.  Looks like old school RTS.

Year of Rain - 2 player
We have not seen an RTS revolve around 2 players since C&C Red Alert 2.  This game aims to  fill those longing for Warcraft like gameplay. Disappointedly unfinished.

Wargroove: Double Trouble - 4 player 
Metacritic - 82 ]
Compared to Advanced Wars, turn based tactics. Includes campaign coop via a free DLC.
The Magic Circle - 4 player
Metacritic - 79 ] 
Surveillance-focused immersive horror. Created by Bioshock veterans, this game will ride the "Things" vibe.

Untitled Goose Game - 2 player
Metacritic - 79 ]
Puzzler of sorts, added coop post release.  Work together to drive people quackers. 


Surgeon Simulator 2 - 2 player 
[ Metacritic - 70 ] 
Bumbling around with a friend over surgery.  What could go wrong?


Darksburg - 4 player 
[ Metacritic - 64 ] 
From the makers of surprise successful Northgard.   Top down zombie killer seems like an odd follow-up  Pick a class, and survive against the odds.
Marvel's Avengers - 4 player
[ Metacritic - 68 ] 
Had the potential to bring back the great Legend series, but instead delivered a high end mobile like souless cash grab.

Struggling - 2 player
[ Metacritic - 65 ] 
2 arms, one body, 2 controllers.  This game will live up to its name. 

Wildfire - 2 player
Metacritic - 79 ]
 8-bit style platformer involving fireballs.  Lots and lots of fire. 
Haven - 2 player
Metacritic - 77 ]
 Make sure your gaming with someone you're close to.  A whole lot of hand holding, in this romantic combat action adventure.
