We have had Xbox One in the market for a few years now, so it might be a good time to round up some of the best experiences we’ve had on the console over the years. Now we all know that multiplayer is fast becoming the more popular mode among gamers, and developers are stressing on creating a more diverse and immersive multiplayer experience for their players. So we did some research and compiled the best multiplayer games we could find for the console and put them together into a single list. Now it’s beyond the scope of this article to highlight all the good multiplayer games, but this seems like a good start. You can play these top multiplayer games on Xbox One and a few of them on Xbox 360.
14. Rocket League (2015)
‘Rocket League’ is what you get when you blend demolition derby with football, and the result is thoroughly entertaining. The game allows you to take part in a soccer match while driving a car. You read that right, there’s no need to look confused. ‘Rocket League’ puts you in the driving seat of a rocket powered car and you must team up with others online to compete in a football match. The rules are pretty much the same as an indoor football game but are played with four players in each team. There is no rule for outside or offside, making it an ongoing experience till a goal scored. It’s really fun to team up with your friends and take on other teams online and the co-op scenario leads to some hilarious scenarios with your opponents.
There have been times when we have played online games just to ram the cars in the opponent’s team making them frustrated. They will then retaliate and soccer is mostly forgotten for the rest of the match. This is one game we highly recommend to people who make it a point to get together regularly and play games together since it is a time killer. It was developed and published by Psyonix in the year 2015 to overall positive reviews though. It has been criticized for its weird physics engine. However, we feel that the physics of the game actually makes it more fun to play, but hey that’s just us! Let us know what you think and whether the physics engine actually needs an overhaul.
13. Trackmania Turbo (2016)
‘Trackmania Turbo’ is an arcade racing game developed by Nadeo and published by Ubisoft in the year 2016 for the Windows PC, the PS4 and the Xbox One. The game was always intended to be flashy and arcady from the very beginning of development and the game proudly bears that flag on its chest. This is as arcade as you can get on your home consoles and if you are a fan of such shenanigans, then you might want to check this game out. There are no physics based collisions or perfectly coded damage signs on your cars but what is does have is breakneck speed and a huge selection of tracks that you can race on. The action is very fast paced and rewards you heavily for pulling off unique stunts within the course of the race. There are 4 distinct realms within the game, namely, Rollercoaster Lagoon, International Stadium, Canyon Grand Drift and Valley Down and Dirty. Each of them contains a selection of tracks and are themed down to the core, allowing you to immerse yourself in high speed action.
