With so much time to spend at home this year, many of us have found ourself drawn to online PVP competitive gaming. With that in mind, we have compiled some of the best PVP games that you can play right now.
Those who are very new to gaming, may ask: what is PVP? PVP is an abbreviation of Player versus Player, and basically means multiplayer games where you play against other players. With that out of the way, here we will cover open-world PVP games, PVP multiplayer games, and other online PVP games that are some of the best PVP games you can play today.
1. Sea of Thieves
Sea of Thieves is one of the best open-world PVP games out right now. You can play with up to 4 of your friends or just go solo on a pirate hunt and conquer seas, look for treasure — all with other players also trying to conquer the seas around you.
Sea of Thieves has revolutionized PVP multiplayer games with this new game design, and if you are looking for something that is unique in the PVP online games arena, then you need to give this one a go. The game costs $50 on Xbox and PC but is free to play with an Xbox Live pass.
2. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
On the other hand, if you don't like playing a slow game like Sea of Thieves, and prefer a fast-paced, action shooting title, then you can't go wrong with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. It is an old classic title that is still going very strong today and has a massive, very active fan base worldwide.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive if one of the best PVP games to ever come out. Many modern titles try to replicate the game design with their own flavors added in the mix, but nothing can beat the raw shooting experience that Counter-Strike: Global Offensive provides. The game is free to play on Steam, and it is worth checking out if you want a classic first-person shooter game experience.
3. Dying Light
Another open-world PVP game, Dying Light, just like the Sea of Thieves, allows players to form a Co-Op with three friends. The game then allows you to either complete the main game together, take part in multiplayer modes, or just lounge around and experience the epic, mad post-apocalyptic zombie-ridden world it provides. The game is $20 on all gaming platforms, and if you get lucky and the game is on sale, you can get it for much lower than that.
4. Dota 2
Dota 2 is among the most classic PVP multiplayer games that, like Counter-Strike, still has a very loyal and growing fanbase. Because Dota 2 is a MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena), you may have to get used to the interface. But once you get the hang of it, Dota 2 is a pure joy to play with your friends and colleagues. The game is free to play on all gaming platforms, and if you want to play a game that will not go obsolete in 3 to 5 years, then Dota 2 is a great choice.
So, that was our list of some of the best PVP games that you can play while staying at home. There are many other PVP multiplayer games like League of Legends, Team Fortress, and Rocket League. And on the other hand, in more so open-world PVP games, we have Rust, Conqueror's Blade, and many more, but for us, we consider the above four as some of the best online PVP games that you can get into right now.
