Between PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Fortnite: Battle Royale, H1Z1, and many other similar games, there is no escaping the battle royale genre. Sure, there is the occasional small-scale outliers like Rocket League and Rainbow Six Siege here and there - you know, little games like that - but even then we are talking about games built on action-packed competition. There is no time to slow down and smell the flowers. Where do you go to hang out and chill with people online? Well, that is exactly where the forthcoming multiplayer expansion for Stardew Valley blooms.
If you need something to play with a mate right now, here are the best co-op games on PC.

That is why fans soon took to filling that glaring hole in the game’s feature list with makeshift multiplayer mods.
