Until Dawn is a PS4 exclusive developed by Supermassive Games and while the choose-your-own-adventure title does not feature actual multiplayer support, it’s still a blast to sit down with your friends and argue about important decisions that each character faces.

Taking place in an abandoned cabin in the woods, control a group of young adults to soon realize that this snowy mountain isn’t just for skiing –it’s full of dark secrets.

Man of Medan

Man of Medan is another adventure game from Supermassive but instead of taking place on a snowy mountain, it primarily focuses on a so-called haunted freighter ship in the middle of the ocean.

By passing around the controller, you and a couple of friends can control the fate of the main characters, with your decisions leading them to life or death.

Dead by Daylight

Fan of Friday the 13th movies? Fan of running around with some friends attempting to not get caught by Jason Voorhees and his hockey mask? Well, Friday the 13th is the game for you.

Similar to Dead by Daylight, one player is the killer and the rest are the camp counselors who have to work together to find a way off the campgrounds without getting murdered.

Don’t Starve Together is a multiplayer expansion to the cult survival game, Don’t’ Starve. By exploring creepy woods, finding materials, and crafting stuff together, you must survive each night with the help of your partner.

Resident Evil 5

It’s been quite a long time since Resident Evil 5 first launched, but the co-op horror third-person shooter remains one of the best games in the franchise.

It may not have the spooks that were present in the classic RE games on the PlayStation but there is no denying that it’s still an entertaining and really fun cooperative shooter.

Resident Evil Revelations 2

Resident Evil Revelations 2 brings Claire Redfield back into the spotlight and pairs her up with Moira, Barry Burton’s daughter. Being a Resident Evil title, you’ll work together to fight off zombies, solve puzzles, and blow stuff up.

There’s also a really fun online multiplayer mode that’s super enjoyable with another person and by yourself.

Five Nights at Freddy’s

Five Nights at Freddy’s isn’t a multiplayer game by any means but it can still be fun to play with friends by just passing around the controller and taking turns surviving the attacks from animatronic characters.

It’s basically a horrifying version of Chuck E. Cheese’s… as if it wasn’t scary enough.

Dead Realm

Dead Realm is the perfect game to stream on a service like Twitch because it’s essentially a game where you play hide and seek and try to freak your friends out with jumpscares.

You can play as the human character or as a ghost over several different maps that are both horrifying and immersive.

Dying Light

Dying Light drops you into an open world with parkour being the main component of traversal. You can get the jump on some zombies, complete quests, and collect materials by sliding and jumping about, and you can also do all of this with a friend.

Dying Light has a bunch of multiplayer game modes ranging from foot races to killing waves of zombies to actually controlling a zombie yourself.

Dead Island

Dead Island throws you into a tropical vacation on a beautiful island but this is no time to relax as zombies plague the island and you need to use all of the tools on the island as weapons such as oars and bats.

Leveling up and getting stronger and stronger feels really good in Dead Island and doing it with a friend by your side will feel even greater.

Left 4 Dead 2

The Left 4 Dead series was one of the best franchises and horror games to ever grace Xbox consoles.

There were also some other really fun modes like Scavenge, Survival, and Versus, which provided hours and hours of online fun.

And there you have it. Those are the best horror games to play with friends.

Even if it’s not Halloween, there’s never a bad time to chill out and get your scare on with some of your buddies. If you have any recommendations for some other games, make sure to leave a comment.
