Gaming has always been a social activity, but with the rise of cloud gaming, playing with friends has become even easier. Cloud gaming allows players to access their favorite games without the need for expensive hardware, making it more accessible for everyone. But can you play multiplayer with cloud gaming, and is it an enjoyable experience?

For those of you that may not have known we’ve recently partnered with Boosteroid Cloud Gaming Platform, and in the past I’ve tested out services like Amazon Luna and Xbox’s own cloud gaming software. For this article, I’m primarily focused on Boosteroid’s software for obvious reasons but this doesn’t mean that if you are using other software you may not have a fairly similar experience and can’t find value in the information I’m presenting today.

I’ve decided the best way to tackle the cloud gaming multiplayer question was to play a variety of different games, jump right into multiplayer and judge for myself if I am able to play, but not just play I’d also like to be able to compete with other gamers online that are using either a PC or console.

Yes, You Can Play Multiplayer With Cloud Gaming

The simple answer to whether or not you can play multiplayer with cloud gaming is a resounding yes! Yes, you can play multiplayer and there are a variety of games to play. For this article, some of the games I played were Destiny 2, Shatterline, Robocraft Infinity, CSGO, and Paladins. I chose these titles because they were the most interesting to me at the time.

For each of these titles, I was able to easily jump in, find a match, and begin playing. Now, I did have a better experience overall on some of these games, but this isn’t a criticism of cloud gaming as a whole, but rather the individual titles.

Our Cloud Gaming Experience

I was able to jump into the games, get some kills, win a few matches, and have fun just like I was playing on a console or PC. I was even able to get a teammate to yell at us during a match for not being as helpful as we could’ve been. So needless to say the experience was I’d say almost the exact same as me playing on my Xbox, Switch, or PS5.

When I say almost, it really did feel like the experience was heavily dependent on the game that I was playing. For example, when playing Destiny 2, CSGO, Paladins, and Robocraft there were no delays or connection issues whatsoever. It appears that all of my shots would register just fine and I was able to get some wins and have a great time online.

With Shatterline, my first match was not the smoothest at first, but this did feel more like an issue with the game as it’s still in development, but my second match was buttery smooth. There were no glitches, or issues while playing this game when I used Boosteroid’s service.

Your Internet Connection Is Important

I think I have stressed enough that you can play online multiplayer using cloud gaming, but there is one factor that can affect your overall experience while cloud gaming more than any other, and that is your internet connection. It is always a good idea to test your connection prior to cloud gaming, and Boosteroid has a button at the top shortly after you log in so you can test your connection before jumping in.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, cloud gaming has revolutionized the way we play games, making it easier than ever before to connect with friends and play together. Whether you’re a hardcore gamer or just looking for a fun way to spend time with friends, cloud gaming is a fantastic option. So, what are you waiting for? Grab your controller and start playing!
