If you’re looking for something to play with your friends, here are the best mobile games we can recommend while staying at home during this COVID season.
Call of Duty: Mobile
Call of Duty: Mobile is one of the newer multiplayer games on the list. It’s also surprisingly good. It’s an online FPS game with a variety of multiplayer modes. That includes classic Call of Duty deathmatches as well as a 100-person battle royale mode similar to PUBG and Fortnite. The game also features some mild elements as you collect famous people from the game series and customize them with various weapon and gear skins. There are a few bugs here and there, but these should get ironed out over time.
Vainglory is arguably the best MOBA on mobile. For those unfamiliar with MOBAs, your goal is to join forces with two other players and try to take the base of the other team. You’ll have a whole battlefield to play with, power-ups to obtain, and it does require quite a bit of strategy to succeed. MOBAs are fairly common and popular in the eSports ring and Vainglory is no different. There are over 30 characters to unlock, a variety of game modes to play, and tons of social elements. Or you can just play with bots if you want to. The decision is yours.
It didn’t take PUBG Mobile long to climb the rating board for multiplayer games on mobile. It’s popular, fun, and it works pretty well on most modern devices. You drop onto an island with 99 other players. The last person standing wins. You find all sorts of weapons and equipment on the island. The borders also slowly restrict the size of the playable area. Thus, if you wind up way out in the boonies, the game itself will eventually kill you. This is as good as it gets in the online battle royale FPS experience until Fortnite comes out eventually.
One of the best card duelling games on mobile is Hearthstone. It is one of the most fast-paced, combo-driven, and exciting card games right now. It’s available on multiple platforms so you can play with people from everywhere. You can also connect your account so no matter where you use it, you still get all your cards and decks in one place.
Fortnite is another game that needs no introduction. This is also a battle royale game that’s really fun to play online against other players. Fortnite is considerably different from PUBG though, it uses cartoonish graphics and a lot of fun elements to make the game lighthearted. Plus there’s a whole building mechanism involved here that no other online Android multiplayer game offers. The game also gets fresh content with weekly patches so no matter when you drop down to play the game, there will be something new happening in it. It’s a really awesome game, but it can be quite difficult to master thanks to the difficult gun mechanics and building system that is central to playing it.
