Playing against the computer is only enjoyable for so long, the real fun starts when you win against your friends and family. If you’re copping a new console this holiday season, add these PS5 accessories and games to your list so you can enjoy some multiplayer action with friends and family.
Perhaps the most essential accessory, an extra PS5 controller is a necessity for multiplayer action. This particular controller was originally released alongside the Playstation 5 last November and since then it’s become one of the more popular electronics on StockX. It’s also available right now for nearly 50% of its retail price. That’s right, this PS5 Controller regularly sells for close to £30, even though it retailed for £60. So skip the line and get a less expensive price right from your couch with a Playstation 5 controller on StockX.
The PS5’s DualSense controllers have rechargeable batteries so gamers will never have to worry about running out of AA batteries at the wrong time. The DualSense Charging Station provides those with a PS5 with a small unit to store two controllers and charge them while they’re not being used. By placing the controller on the dock after each playing session, gamers will never have to worry about plugging in to charge while they play ever again.
A gaming headset not only allows you to share the in-game experience with friends and teammates but can also help to boost your performance, and there’s not many PS5 accessories that can offer that. From improving audio quality to blocking out disturbances, a good gaming headset will provide a truly immersive experience and allow you to hear things you might otherwise miss.
If you’re taking your console game to the next level with the PS5 console, then adding the Sony PlayStation 5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset to your gaming experience is a must. The Sony PlayStation 5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset offers next-level sound, easy-access controls, hidden dual microphones, and up to 12 hours of gaming on one charge.
The ROG Delta GUNDAM EDITION features a USB-C connector that offers wired compatibility with PS5s. Don’t let the lack of wireless connectivity put you off though, this anime-inspired headset more than makes up for it in other ways. Customisable multi-colour RGB lighting lets you choose from over 16.8 million colour combinations and six preset lighting effects. Sound-wise, the ASUS ROG Delta featured industry-leading hi-res ESS quad-DAC for impeccably detailed and true-to-life audio, as well as an airtight chamber and audio signal diversion technology for immersive audio.
For Danish manufacturer, SteelSeries, staying connected is everything. Not only does this headset allow you to tether to both your phone and PS5 at the same time, but the Pro Wireless Headset comes with two batteries, so you can always keep one freshly charged. Widely recognised as the best mic in gaming, the Arctis ClearCast microphone delivers studio-quality voice clarity and background noise cancellation, while you can optimise your sound output using the set’s easy-to-use Base Station.
PS5 Multiplayer Games
We know that most people these days are purchasing their games digitally and for the most part, that’s the smartest thing to do. Getting a physical copy of the game really only makes sense when that game can be purchased for a lower price than digital. Fortunately, StockX has a lot of games for below retail.
Far Cry is one of those game franchises, like Assassin’s Creed or Fallout, that’s always done well and always delivers a compelling story. It’s an open-world game where the goal is to buck the authority of some kind of dictator-slash-emperor figure, in this case, played by Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito. For the sixth Far Cry title, you can play the full main storyline and all the side content with a friend online.
The latest in the award-winning Call of Duty series, Call of Duty: Vanguard, features the series’ signature online multiplayer experience. But the chaotic 48-player deathmatches can sometimes feel like a harsh, lonely place, so if you have an extra PS5 controller, it’s never a bad idea to call in additional support from a friend and play together in split-screen mode.
A family-friendly game that’s playable in co-op mode, Sackboy A Big Adventure features vibrant visuals and straightforward mechanics that everyone can master, from your niece to your nan. An online multiplayer mode will be available later this year, but for now, you can play from your sofa with up to four players.
