Best Local PlayStation Co-op Games
So you wanna know the best PlayStation local co-op games playing right now. Lucky for you, you’ve come to the right place. While it’s true that video games are increasingly leaning towards online multiplayer exclusivity, there are still some great local PlayStation co-op games to enjoy. And here they are!
Just a quick warning, I’ll try to avoid the games I mentioned on my top Xbox local co-op games, but some of them do pass on PlayStation. So, if you’re curious about other games beyond this list, be sure to check out this list.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure
First on the list is Sackboy: A Big Adventure. Based in the world of Little Big Planet but as a standalone story, this adventure plays like a Mario game with its own twists. There are many levels that will test your and your co-op partner’s platforming skills.
Whether you’re looking for a challenge or new to video games, Sackboy: A Big Adventure welcomes everyone. With colorful worlds, cool gadgets and unlockable costumes, this game is a real treat and works great in 2-4 local co-op.
If FIFA isn’t your thing, you might like the combination of rocket-powered racing cars playing football. Rocket League is in a league of its own because there really is nothing like it. It’s as easy as football with cars and can be played 2v2, 3v3 or 4v4.
Playing with 1 local teammate or 3 really brings this game to life. You can also go head-to-head in fierce competition with the friends sitting next to you. Rocket League is easily one of the best local PlayStation co-op games.
Moving Out is similar to Overcooked in artistic style and simplicity. Where it differs is the lens. And as you might have guessed, this game is all about moving all the objects in a house within a certain time limit.
Played best in couch co-op, Moving Out will have you loading up furniture as quickly as possible. Some items will require 2 people while others can be grabbed and thrown into the truck. It’s simple, but it’s a great local co-op experience.
Borderlands 3 is the franchise’s latest looter shooter, and it’s a good one. With four new characters to choose from and new weapons galore, Borderlands 3 is great local co-op for any friend or couple. You will work together to fight your way through various planets and missions together.
Borderlands 3 is awesome and all, but stay tuned for more info on Borderlands’ newest adventure, Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. With a fantastic twist, Wonderlands is sure to take the Borderlands formula to the next level.
Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl
Finally, we have Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl. Very similar to Super Smash Bros., an extremely popular Nintendo exclusive, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl pits mascots from your childhood against each other. It was released in 2022 and, while welcome to all levels of gamer, has a steep learning curve if you want to go pro.
Whether you’re looking for something to get good at or something to have fun with your friends locally, Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is a fantastic game. I mean, you can play characters like Spongebob and Aang the Avatar, what don’t you like?
And it will do it for the best local PlayStation co-op games you can play right now. For all your other game guides, news, and lists, check out Attack of the Fanboy for more.
