Almost all of the projects listed below can be run even on a 10-year build computer.

Last time we shared with you our top PC games for weak PCs. But it’s more interesting to play with friends! For spending time together in digital worlds, having a high-performance machine is also an optional condition. Therefore, we decided to tell you about the best online games for weak PCs, which are best to try with your friends.

Borderlands 3

  • RAM:  6 GB 
  • Video card:  AMD Radeon ™ HD 7970 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB
  • DirectX:  Version 11
  • Disk space:  75 GB

The last part of the famous franchise, which many gamers associate with recklessness and fun. The game is a first-person shooter with an incredible amount of randomly-generated weapons. Also, the player is given a choice of several characters with a unique pumping system. The project is done in a bright style, but not everyone will like it. But funny quests and specific humor are exactly what fans love the game for. If the last part does not work on your computer, you can always download the previous two. They are no worse than Borderlands 3, and the system requirements are much lower.

Don’t starve together.

Minimum system requirements :

  • Processor:  1.7 GHz or better
  • RAM:  1 GB
  • Video Card:  Radeon HD5450 or better 256 MB or better
  • DirectX:  Version 9.0c
  • Disk space:  750 MB

We decided not to limit ourselves to one project in our selection, which stands out from the rest with its design—this time, you have to plunge into the fantastic world of wild nature. And, of course, try not to die there. And you can go to the next world here is completely different and most unpredictable ways. This is exactly the main idea of ​​the game. Because the world is fictional, you do not know what to expect from an unfriendly environment. We have to study the local flora and fauna by trial and error to look for ways for progress. Unique gameplay and extremely democratic system requirements oblige us to include this game in the best cooperatives for weak PCs.

Terraria

Minimum system requirements :

  • Processor:  1.6+ GHz or better
  • RAM:  512 MB
  • Video card:  with 128 MB of video memory and support for shaders 1.1
  • DirectX:  Version 9.0c
  • Disk space:  200 MB

Pixel graphics and low hardware are the perfect combination. This game is very similar in concept to Don’t Starve Together. You will also have to explore the fantasy world, fight bosses, complete events, and craft a lot. However, in addition to 2D images, the developers offer gamers a unique structure of the world, 90% underground. The generation is completely random, so that each playthrough will be unique. It is noteworthy that there is no progression system. This means that the character does not pump any skills. His skills do not depend on the experience gained. There are no quests in the literal sense of the word in the game either. That is, everything will depend solely on your skills and items found. 

Torchlight 2

Minimum system requirements :

  • Processor:  x86 compatible, 1.4 GHz or better
  • RAM:  1 GB
  • Video card:  DirectX compatible with 256 MB of available memory
  • DirectX:  Version 9.0c
  • Disk space:  1.2 GB

Of course, we couldn’t ignore the classic Diablo-style RPGs with tons of quests and an almost endless, highly variable progression system. According to the genre’s traditions, the player is offered a choice of several classes with unique skills. You can go through Torchlight alone, but better with friends because the characters’ skills are perfectly combined, allowing you to perform spectacular and effective spell combinations. In the second part, the developers cut out repetitive tasks and improved the graphics, but at the same time retained the visual style and atmosphere. Therefore, we recommend starting your acquaintance with the series from the second part. If you like, you can download the third one. 

Left 4 Dead 2

Minimum system requirements :

  • Processor:  x86 compatible, 1.4 GHz or better
  • RAM:  1 GB
  • Video card:  DirectX compatible with 256 MB of available memory
  • DirectX:  Version 9.0c
  • Disk space:  1.2 GB

The project does not need a detailed introduction. This is a classic zombie shooter set in the list of the best co-op games for weak PCs. Despite the release date (2009), many gamers still spend tens of hours shooting the walking dead. There is one reason for this – the random generation of monsters. The game contains zombies with unique abilities. Such enemies need a superior approach, taking into account their weaknesses. But because several of these can spawn at once and anywhere, the players have difficulties with the passage. This is especially felt at high difficulty levels. It will take you more than a dozen attempts to complete certain missions. 

Divinity: Original Sin 2

Minimum system requirements :

  • Processor:  Intel Core i5 or higher
  • RAM:  4 GB
  • Video card:  NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 or ATI Radeon HD 6XXX or higher
  • DirectX:  Version 11
  • Disk space:  60 GB

 If simple shots don’t appeal to you and you want deeper gameplay, then the game from Larian Studios is for you. Before you is a turn-based strategy with an exciting plot, elaborate, colorful characters, difficult opponents, and many spells combined in different ways, you will control all 4 characters in the group (which you choose yourself) when playing solo. When inviting a friend, he will have to play as one of these characters and, since there are many controversial and non-obvious situations in the game, you will have to discuss a lot and make compromises. Also, you will not find monotonous quests and enemies here. All of them are unique and closely intertwined with the main plotline. The tasks have many ways of solving, and your choice at the beginning of the passage can radically affect the ending.
