A very quick and mostly SEO friendly introduction: here are five of the best video games available on Xbox Game Pass that you absolutely must try with your headset or couch friend , the so-called cooperative or co-op, online and/or offline multiplayer (here instead, the best shooters available on Xbox Game Pass).
A Way Out & It Takes Two
Josef Fares, during The Game Awards 2017, shouted “Fuck the Oscars” to the worldwide audience. Idol, genius and unruliness, we therefore want to start with his last two developed video games. In A Way Out you must break out of prison with your cellmate in a dramatic, heartbreaking adventure with an overflowing ending.
In It Takes Two, on the other hand, you will have to patch up your failing marriage, traversing a game world that you will find hard to believe was really conceived. Both titles are co-op only, so you cannot in any way play them in single player (unless you want to use two joysticks simultaneously).
Gears of War Saga
The first Gears of War trilogy, Gears Of War Judgment, Gears of War 4 and the latest Gears, 5: that’s more than sixty hours of gameplay available on Xbox Game Pass. If you love third-person shooters with jaw-breaking graphics and intoxicating gunplay, then there is no saga that can counter the one conceived by Cliffy B. Marcus and Dom take no prisoners, especially if they are filthy Locusts.
Die, reborn and restart from the beginning. If you pass away undeservedly in the fifth and final world of the game dear player, well, you will still start from scratch and no one will console you. All this, even though we are talking about a very good quality fps if we consider bare-bones shooting, could therefore become particularly frustrating in the long run.
In addition, there is no story to hold sway as was the case with Returnal. That’s why Gunfire Reborn must be played together with a friend: guaranteed fun and half the number of expletives.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge
Arcade and Ninja Turtles for up to six players at once. What good old days and how much money wasted, most of the time then without reaching the much-needed credits. Well, with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge (who narrowly missed the top of the best video games of 2022) by Tribute Games and DotEmu, you can call your longtime friend with whom you used to die every 1 grandfather’s euro and take a well-deserved revenge against that artificial intelligence that made Bepop and Rocksteady insurmountable giants.
Remnant 1 & 2
Yesterday, Nov. 30, 2023, Microsoft revealed the new December games coming to Xbox Game Pass: these include Remnant: From The Ashes and its sequel, Remnant 2. The saga developed by Gunfire Games studio is a third-person shooter of high difficulty (not coincidentally, it is referred to as soulslike). It is possible to tackle both campaigns of the two titles in the company of one or more persons so as to halve the frustration in case of a painful death.
We put you six names instead of five (but actually the list is constantly being updated). However, if we consider the entire Gears Saga available on Game Pass, we arrive at no less than ten video games with which to test your skills and spirit of sacrifice: are you ready to experience unforgettable co-op matches with a friend?
