biggest online games 2019

If you’re looking for new and exciting games to play with your friends online there is an almost endless variety to keep you and your buddies busy. From free to play titles like Avakin Life to premium offerings available on PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC, no matter what you and your friends are into, there’s likely an online game that’ll be everyone’s favorite.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into some of the biggest online games this year.

1. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG)

PUBG is a competitive battle royale-style survival shooter from Tencent International Ltd., where players fight to locate weapons and supplies in a massive 8km square island, in an attempt to be the last survivor.

Players can use vehicles, explore houses, military bases and a variety of other structures. Hidden in random spots are a wide range of simple and complex weapons to eliminate the competition. Arguably the most popular online multiplayer game in the world, PUBG has over 2 million players on Steam and is available across a wide range of platforms, including Android.

2. Apex Legends

Developed by Respawn Entertainment and published by Electronic Arts, Apex Legends is set in the Titanfall universe and pits 60 players against each other in a battle arena to fight to the death. Unlike PUBG’s lone wolf game style, however, Apex groups players in squads of three and encourages cooperation to survive. The game won Best Multiplayer Game at the Golden Joystick Awards 2019 and was described as an immaculate battle royale.

Each character has their own unique abilities that complement the rest of the squad’s, and the ability to revive squadmates adds more depth to the genre. A post by HP on ‘How to Play Apex Legends on PC’ details how the game reimagines the Battle Arena concept, but not in a last-man-standing approach.

Rather, as a team-based cooperative game where keeping your entire squad alive is more important than blowing your enemies away.

3. Battlefield 1

It’s rare that we see a World War I themed game, and Electronic Arts’ Battlefield 1 casts the player on the scorched battlefields of the era with spectacular visuals, modern mechanics and sprawling maps. Certainly, a better game than its successor, Battlefield V, this WWI shooter slows down the game to a more methodical pace allowing for better tactical strategy.

Its exaggerated, almost-steampunk chaos of the battlefield is exceptionally rendered in a darker and more terrifying atmosphere reminiscent of the actual battlefields. From using bayonet charges to gas grenades, and other slightly re-imagined WWI weapons, players can drive various tanks and other vehicles in this extraordinary free for all.

4. Mordhau

Based on the Unreal Engine, Triternion’s multiplayer medieval hack ‘n slash game takes players back to the good old days of chivalry, swords, morning stars, and battle-axes. With most online games these days revolving around shooting, Mordhau builds on physics-based first-person games like Chivalry & Mount and Blade.

The game pits up to 64 players against each other in an orgy of swords, maces, throwing knives and whatever weapons they find on the ground. The unique combat mechanics allow players to improvise, and even when they’re lying prone on the ground, players can pull out a knife from a shield and take out an incoming attacker with a well-placed throw.

Apart from the mandatory free for all battle royale modes, there are team-based siege games where players have to work together to take over a castle or repel invaders.
