Hearthstone, Magicka and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 are three online games that can cater to two players at once. While Hearthstone is available for free, the other two cost money. Magicka and Modern Warfare 2 offer cooperative gameplay modes. Hearthstone pits the two players against each other.
Hearthstone is an online trading card game that is based on the Warcraft lore. The players choose one of the nine heroes, design their own decks and fight against each other. Each hero has his or her own unique ability and class-specific cards that synergize well with each other. Players take turns to cast spells and summon minions by playing cards and using their hero abilities. The game is available for PCs, Macs, phones and tablets.
Magicka is a cooperative role-playing game that puts the two players in a fantasy world. The players can combine any of the eight elements to create their own spells, often to their own demise. Magicka is a satirical game that mixes Norse mythology, Internet memes, other fantasy worlds and real-life events. As such, one player may be fighting demonic monsters with an M60 machine gun while the other throws a healing boulder in his direction. Magicka is only available for Windows computers.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 has an online game mode that is especially suitable for two-player gameplay. The Special Ops game mode offers various missions that require the two players to plan and act together. The mission types include stealth ops, actions levels and timed runs. The game is available for PCs, Macs, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
