Civilization VI

Few games give you the same sense of power and scale that comes with the Civilization series. The latest entry, Civilization VI, has a massive collection of DLC that adds features like Climate Change, City Loyalty, and a host of new world leaders to contend with. The base game is on an 85% discount during the current sale, but the best deal is actually from the Platinum Edition, which gives you nearly all the DLC at a 91% discount, making this one of the best multiplayer games on the Steam Summer Sale.

Dead By Daylight

This is one of the most popular 1v6 games out there, with a group of survivors trying to stay alive while horrifying monsters hunt them down. The base game is on a 60% discount, but to get the best experience, you’ll want to pick up the Ultimate Edition. This includes all previously released killers and survivors, giving you plenty to choose from. It is currently on a 38% discount on the Steam Summer Sale.

This quirky and whimsical puzzle game is one of the best two-player cooperative games on Steam and has won plenty of awards since its release in 2021. Picking this multiplayer game up on the Steam Summer Sale comes with a 60% discount at the moment, making it an absolute steal to pick up.

Monster Hunter Rise

This is one of the best games in the storied Monster Hunter series, with plenty of weapon builds to try out and monsters to slay. Though the game can be played solo, it shines when played with friends, where combat strategies can come together in real-time. At a 49% discount, Monster Hunter Rise is easily one of the best multiplayer games to pick up in the Steam Summer Sale.

No Man’s Sky

No Man’s Sky is one of the great comeback stories of the gaming industry. While it didn’t deliver on its lofty promises at launch, nearly six years later it is one of the best multiplayer games on any platform. There are endless worlds to explore, which you can now do with friends in your crew. No Man’s Sky is currently 50% off in the Steam Summer Sale.

Stardew Valley

Yes, you probably already have this game in your library, but there is always a chance that one of your friends still hasn’t picked it up. Though the multiplayer aspect of the game was added late in the game’s lifespan, the cooperative nature of Stardew Valley means that everyone benefits from visiting each other’s farms. The game is currently on a 40% discount, which is bigger than it usually hits during these sales.

Stellaris

If you’re a fan of Civilization, then Stellaris takes the same concept of nation-building and takes it to the stars. There are alien species to encounter and conquer, but the real fun comes from building an interstellar trade empire. The base game is on a massive 75% discount, but bundles of the DLC, which open up new races and victory conditions, are all heavily discounted as well. This is a more complicated game than Civilization VI but it is still one of the best multiplayer games in the Steam Summer Sale.

The Elder Scrolls Online

If you’ve played through games like Skyrim and thought “I wish I could share this experience with others” then you’re in luck! The Elder Scrolls Online allows you to do just that, bringing that open-world feel the series is known for to an MMO. And at a 70% discount in the Steam Summer Sale, it is worth taking a chance on if you’re not sure it’s for you. Unfortunately, you’ll have to pay full price for the DLC and Expansion Packs, though.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands

This is a game that showcases the best parts of the Borderlands franchise, with over-the-top action and plenty of chaos to go around. This shooter gives players the chance to mix a bit of fantasy into the sci-fi setting and is currently at a 20% discount due to the current Steam Summer Sale.

V Rising

Sometimes you don’t want to be the good guy. Sometimes, you want to be a vampire lord establishing your own kingdom. V Rising lets you do just that. The game is still in Early Access and the current discount is only 10%, but it is a great multiplayer game to pick up and sink your teeth into all the same.

These deals are good, but if you’re on a tight budget, be sure to check out our Top Steam Summer Sale Deals under $5 for some great games that won’t break the bank.
