If you’re having a PS4, call them whatever you want: local, couch, co-op, multiplayer fun, or 4 players. It doesn’t really matter as long as you have fun playing. Our list will not consist of so famous title like FIFA, PES, or Minecraft. To bring you freshness, we created a roundup of best 4-player PS4 games, and a few of them – you might haven’t heard before.

1. Trial Fusion

Trial Fusion multiplayer game for 4 player ps4
  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation Portable
  • Game genres: Platform, racing
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

It’s the old-school type of racing game where you and three other friends will compete in 4 parallel tracks. The rules are quite simple: You will have to get to the other side of the track by overcoming different obstacles. Anyone who gets hit or lose control will not be able to complete the track and you will start on the other side of the track once the last active player finishes.

The fun part is that the vehicle motion is quite hard to control. So, you will probably end up in weird positions which can be quite entertaining. Plus, there are tons of different tracks and customizations that you can adjust to make the game funnier.

2. OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood

OlliOlli2: Welcome to Olliwood multiplayer ps4 game
  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Android, Microsoft Windows, Linux, Macintosh operating systems
  • Game genre: Sports
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

OlliOlli2 is a perfect split-screen game for parties, especially those who love skateboarding. You will play with your friends to see who will get the highest point. Depending on your performance, the system will determine who gets the highest score.

The controller is quite simple, but it could be quite complicated in terms of performing tricks and stuns. On top of that, you can die and lose everything. This would make it a really competitive game to play.

3. Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time

  • Platforms: Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, Linux, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch
  • Game genres: Action, platform
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

This is a really fun co-op game. Throughout the journey, you and your friends will play as little aliens who move around controlling their spaceship. The purpose is to avoid obstacles, fight the enemies, and rescue your friends (the other alien friends). It’s really fun since you guys will need great teamwork to be able to win the game.

4. Broforce

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, Macintosh operating systems, Linux
  • Game genre: Run-and-gun platform
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

This brilliant ARPG game shares a lot of similar features with Meta Slug. But instead of one player, you will have the option to play with your friends. It has beautiful retro art styles with crazy Hollywood characters and hilarious mechanism.

Moreover, there are so many things happening on a single screen. You will have to work your eyes off to be able to spot which characters is yours since the shootings and explosions can be really confusing. But at the same time, it’s really great when playing with friends.

5. Overcooked

overcooked gameplay for 4 people ps4
  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows
  • Game genre: Simulation
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

For a cooking game, this is pretty epic. Like other titles where you can have a great time with your friends, this one takes you guys into a kitchen.

The greatest part is that Overcooked requires a whole new level of understanding between each other. You have to know where to find the ingredients, kitchen equipment, and the orders. On top of that, you will likely end up shouting at each other for letting the food burnt or overcooked. But don’t worry, those arguments only make the games more interesting and entertaining.

6. Helldivers

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, Microsoft Windows
  • Game genre: Shoot ’em up
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

It’s a fantastic co-op shooting game where you and your friends will play as space soldiers fighting against monsters. Helldivers requires a high level of understanding between the players to complete each stage. You can play it online or offline on your PS4. In my opinion, this is one of the best 4 player PS4 games for you and your friends to play with.

7. Alienation

alienation ps4 multiplayer game for 4 players
  • Platform: PlayStation 4
  • Game genres: Shooter, RPG
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

Alienation comes with a beautiful art style and exciting dash mechanic. Four of you can play on a couch or you can play it online at the same time. The best thing about Alienation is the intuitive upgrade system that allows you to combine and adjust your equipment to make them more powerful. Sometimes, you can customize them to achieve cool effects as well.

8. Badland

Badland multiplayer game ps4
  • Platforms: Android, PlayStation 4, iOS, Xbox One
  • Game genre: Puzzle
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

There are lots of things to talk about this game. It’s fun, addictive, and it comes with an interesting control system. It’s like playing Flappy Bird where you will use only one button to overcome the obstacles. There are different modes to play with, and for me, the competitive mode is such an overkill. Four players inside a spinning wheel with traps chasing them, you could imagine how much fun and argument Badland can have.

9. SpeedRunners

speedrunners multiplayer gameplay for ps4
  • Platforms: Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Linux, Macintosh operating systems
  • Game genre: Platform
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

The name of this game shows almost everything: The players will race to the finish line to see who the winner is. But the fun art style and entertaining control system make it really addictive, especially when you’re playing with your friends. Interestingly, instead of having your own small split screen when being left behind like other racing games, in SpeedRunners, if you fall behind, you’re dead!

10. Gang Beasts

Gang Beasts gameplay best 4-player ps4 game
  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows, Macintosh operating systems, Linux
  • Game genres: Beat ’em up, Party
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

With Gang Beasts, you will have the chance to encounter countless random, funny, unscripted moments. It’s all because of wobbly characters who are more like dolls and find it difficult to stand balanced on their own feet. So, prepare to have many laughs with your friends while playing the game.

11. That’s You!

  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Android, iOS
  • Game genre: Party
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

For this game, you need to have four smartphones to play with. Luckily, it’s quite simple to understand the game. You will take a picture of yourself acting like you’re doing a certain activity that the game suggests. Then your friends will draw on it to see who get the most accurate result. The results can be quite entertaining as not all of us are artists. You will surely burst into laughter because of funny images from your friends.

12. TowerFall Ascension

TowerFall Ascension gameplay one of the best 4-player games for ps4
  • Platforms: PlayStation 4, Windows, Linux, OS X, PlayStation Vita, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch
  • Game genre: Action, platformer
  • Game modes: Single player, multiplayer

TowerFall Ascension is a classic title with a simple map, four players, and entertaining battles. It’s a game of anticipation, cooperation, and endless fun as well. It’s surprising that everything happens only on a 2D screen with a simple control system.

Hopefully, our today’s list of best 4 player PS4 games has given useful information for your searching. Have great fun with your friends and family!
