Playing multiplayer games is great, it’s challenging, competitive, you can sometimes meet some nice fellow gamers and a lot of people prefer to play multiplayer over other game modes as playing with other real people, whether they’re good, bad or funny adds a different aspect to the game.

Below I have listed all of the most popular scary multiplayer games for you to check out. Some are scarier than others and rely on jumpscares whilst some actually have a great story and are worth the play just to check out the gripping cut scenes, so make sure to read the descriptions and watch the trailers.

I also made a video on my youtube channel dedicated to The best multiplayer video games but these aren’t scary, only the ones below are.


Dead Realm

Dead realm is fun to play with friends, it’s immersive, spooky and overall really good fun. I do recommend going into the game with friends as the servers can sometimes be a little quiet.

You can play as either a ghost or a human, both are so fun to play and you decide to either run, hide, survive or die. The graphics aren’t amazing but if you go into the game with a few friends and immerse yourself in the creepy environments you may just love it.

If you’re a competitive person this is an awesome game as it really tests your abilities and stealth. It’s set in a creepy environment, each twist and turn feels eery and when you’re hiding alone in a room and your friend’s mics go quiet, it can get quite worrying!

Dead Space

A survival, science-fiction-based horror game that is sure to leave you on edge every single time you play.

The graphics are great and there’s a ton of quirky elements that feature in the game that make it that little bit better (such as the oxygen tank that when empty, suffocates the player).

Play single or multiplayer and enjoy trying to survive in this futuristic apocalyptic world. There’s lots of action, a great story and challenging experiences that you must work your way through.

Left 4 Dead

Left 4 dead is a crazy zombie killing game. There are terrifying witches that seem to come out of nowhere when startled, there are zombie hordes at every corner and there’s only 4 of you. You can play single player or with friends on multiplayer to try and battle through these undead characters on each round.

Revive your teammates, save your teammates and save yourself as you collect guns and destroy all zombies that cross your path that seem to get worse and worse as teammates can be killed off at any point by the zombie hordes.

If you like left 4 dead then check out these games that are just like it.

Dead By Daylight

One of the most fun horror games on this list has to be this one. Dead by daylight is a survival horror game that makes you play 4 vs 1 where one of you is the savage killer.

If you’re the survivor you must try to escape and hide from the killer before it’s too late. This game really keeps you on the edge of your seat and can get pretty scary when you hear those killer footsteps getting nearer and nearer to you.

I love this scary game, I think it’s immersive and creates great suspense at every point. It’s just as fun if you’re the killer as you can hunt down your teammates and make them squeal as you emerge from the shadows or as the survivor you are constantly on edge as you make your way for the exit and back to safety but of course it is never that simple.

7 Days To Die

This game is in no way easy and actually a bit of a challenge. See how long you can survive in this scary post-apocalyptic horror game filled with zombies and other deadly elements. Loot, hunt, mine, roleplay and defend yourself in this crazy whirlwind of a game.

Create the best base with friends or solo to defend yourself against other players and zombies, farm and try and most importantly, survive.

What I love most about this game is that you really can’t trust anyone, zombies aren’t the only enemy, in fact, other players are a huge threat and if you don’t have an awesome base you could find yourself hunted and killed before you have even begun.

I found this game for an amazing price and with an amazing discount on PC or PS4.

The Forest

The story of this game is actually pretty good and fairly immersive, the thing that makes it scary is the creepy cannibalistic creatures that sit watching your every move and even come and attack you at random times during the day and night.

Hearing their footsteps run past your home, diving into a cave scared, having them creep up behind you and all this whilst trying to complete the story makes it a creepy, fun game.

There’s a huge map to explore, you must find your way to your missing son and the other plane crash survivors, however, defeating the creepy cannibals and surviving the nights is a lot harder than it sounds.

You can check out these Forest alternatives if you enjoy the forest.

Killing Floor 2

There’s no story in killing floor 2 (games similar to killing floor) but there are waves of zombies that get increasingly harder the more waves you complete in each round.

Wave 1 is fairly easy, with only a few zombies to kill but by level 9 you will have beads of sweat dripping from your forehead as the zombies come in hordes and you and only a few other players must fend them off with your chosen guns. It’s so addictive and so much fun.

You can also find it for a really decent price here.

The Last Of Us

The story and the graphics in this game are incredible, extremely immersive and convincing. This game can be played single player or multiplayer and isn’t just a fun walk in the park, it’s challenging, thought to provoke, scary and fulfilling.

The last of us is an action filled, survival based horror game set in a post-apocalyptic world where human cannibal creatures are hunting the remaining few.

White Noise

If you’re playing with friends it won’t be long until you’re all screaming. White noise 2 means business when it comes to horror and with your flashlight running out, the rooms getting creepier with each step and the creatures being played by real people, this game will leave you shook up.

Be an investigator and hunt for things that go bump in the night or play as the creature and stalk your prey, terrifying them at every corner of the map.


Deceit is such a fun game, you are placed amongst 6 players and 2 of you are infected with a virus. You must lie, win trust in order to escape and determine who is lying and who is infected.

The game is set up to deliberately cause conflict, you must scout out the infected and if you are the infected you must kill without being seen, setting traps, killing players and sabotaging their escape.

Playing with a mic is neccesary as you do need to talk and determine who is lying. Get your poker voice when you play deceit because everyone suspects everyone.

Find Deceit for an amazing price using my special PC link.

Resident Evil 5

We all know resident evil is a terrifying gaming series but resident evil 5 is voted one of the scariest.

Play to discover why the world is being plagued by this evil virus and discover the immersive gameplay, awesome story and horrifying creatures that seem to pop up when you least expect them.

Something I love about RE is the story, you never get bored of playing it even after all of these years.

You can get up to 60% off Resident Evil here.
