We love playing Valheim, a survival base-building game full of exploration and replay-ability with its endless amount of procedurally generated maps (or seeds).

You are a viking who has been dropped into the purgatory world of Valheim, you must build and fight to survive the harsh elements and variety of dangerous creatures you will encounter across the lands. You will sail the seas in viking fashion and fight mighty bosses to progress your game.

Together you will gather supplies and discover recipes to craft important armor, weapons, and components for your base, house, or fortress. The skies the limit on what you decide to build, and there is no limit to the amount of places you can build on your maps.

Elder Scrolls Online

There’s so much to say about playing ESO as a couple or a duo. With all MMORPGs each player will need their own account to play together. Elder Scrolls Online is free to play with an optional monthly subscription called ESO Plus.

If two people are starting the game together for the first time we would recommend they both choose the same Alliance so the order of main story quests will sync. You can both complete the tutorial and choose together where you want to start your quests.

Questing is voice-over in ESO, so when there are two people you may want to go through the quest dialog together when you’re in a group because sometimes you have to make unchangeable decisions.

There’s a LOT of exploration and activities to do in Elder Scrolls Online together, meaning you can go to delves and dungeons, craft, fish, decorate houses, complete overland content like world bosses and zone map completion, and battle other players in PvP for instance.

Lord of the Rings Online

LOTRO is another MMORPG that is good for couples, and duos. Lord of the Rings Online is free to play with an optional VIP monthly subscription.

Questing is completed by reading the quest from NPCs you meet in your adventures, there are Epic Book quests to follow through the main story where you are completing tasks and helping people alongside what’s going on with the Fellowship.

Lord of the Rings Online has a massive map to explore, with thousands of quests. Things you can do as a two-person group are quests, some small scale dungeons like 3-player, Skirmishes, Missions, and of course Deeds, which are goals you complete for rewards and progression.

This game is most enjoyed when it’s done in a take-your-time pace, as it is all about the journey, not necessarily the end. There are a LOT of festivals and mini events throughout the year, where you can barter for mounts, pets, and cosmetics, etc.

Set in an Australian setting, Dinkum is a life simulation with online co-op functionality. If you’re a fan of games like Stardew Valley, Animal Crossing, and Minecraft then Dinkum will feel familiar with a different story and theme. Dinkum lets you play at your pace with cooldowns on progression being gated behind your ability to make friends with villagers and Dinks, aka coins.

The maps are procedurally generated and there’s plenty to do like farming, fishing, cooking, gathering, building, and even terraforming. Build a village, farm vegetables, take care of animals, and craft vehicles. If you like fashion, there’s a lot of cosmetic pieces to collect too.

Dinkum can be played single player or online co-op. You can invite your friends to your island to help you build. In multiplayer, only the host can place buildings, move buildings, and sell farm animals. Everything else can be progressed, when you return to your island you take your skills and items with you.
