Best Multiplayer is an expansive category that can cross genres. Monster Hunter: World sits as a third-person RPG, teaming players against massive monsters that require intense teamwork to take down. Meanwhile, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 provides a tight first-person shooter that almost defines the genre. Lots of games have multiplayer in them these days, but which are the best of the best? Here are the PlayStation LifeStyle nominations for Best Multiplayer in 2018.
Best Multiplayer Game 2018 Winner
Destiny 2: Forsaken
Destiny 2 had a rocky beginning last year, but Bungie completely turned the game around with Forsaken. The multiplayer experience allows players to connect both cooperatively and competitively. From six-player Raids that require intense coordination and communication, to Gambit, a brand new mode that pits players against each other and AI combatants, Destiny 2 has so much to offer its players. It sits at the perfect crossroads between an MMO and a first-person shooter, an experience that is as yet unrivaled. The Best Multiplayer category can include multiple genres of games. For this unique multiplayer experience that also crosses genres, there’s no question why it won our Best Multiplayer award.

Our readers took a liking to Monster Hunter: World and made sure it won the top spot as the Best Multiplayer Game in 2018.
