Game of the Year Awards 2019: Best Multiplayer Game
As much as we appreciate strong, single player experiences, there is something to be said for a game with great multiplayer. Whether it comes down to near endless replayability, or nail-biting competition, or maybe a bit of both, all of these factors came into play when helping us pick our favourites. 2019 saw some excellent entries in this category, and be it playing on our own, or with friends, great multiplayer experiences are a big draw for the industry, sometimes even being the sole focus. Peep the video below to check out our nominees for the Best Multiplayer Games of 2019!
Lots of titles in 2019 gave us excellent multiplayer experiences, but these are the games that excelled past their peers, and are sure to keep us coming back not just in 2019, but beyond as well. You may have only played one or two of these titles, but that can also speak to just how much the multiplayer features resonated with you as a player. Needless to say, be it competitive or co-operative, these nominees proved there was something for everybody in 2019.
