Battle monsters and cosmic gods in Hellpoint, navigate your way through the cutesy world of It Takes Two, or beat your opponents into submission with epic spectacle in Guilty Gear Strive during the Steam Autumn Sale. Discounts of up to 85% bring some of the best local and online multiplayer versus and co-op games to new lows.

1. A Way Out - 85% off

A Way Out is a story-rich, action-adventure game that follows the story of two less-than-savoury inmates that form a shaky alliance to plot their way out of prison. As players work together to solve puzzles and make their way out of their confinement, things become more chaotic and less predictable. 

Unlike the rest of the games mentioned after this, A Way Out is an exclusively-co-op experience. You must bring a friend. A Way Out delivers a number of gameplay mechanics, including stealth, driving, combat, and, curiously, even fishing.

A Way Out is available for just US$4.49 on Steam during the Steam Autumn Sale.

2. Hellpoint - 75% off

Hellpoint is a sci-fi-horror action RPG that drops players into an abandoned space station that was once humanity's crowing achievement. On the space station, named Irid Nova, players will face off against all manner of twisted creatures and Cosmic Gods in intense combat, exploring the space station to decipher the story of it and its inhabitants.

Hellpoint and its dark aesthetic are not for everyone, but it has a strong emphasis on adventure and challenging combat, despite the sometimes-claustrophobic setting of the space station. Gameplay and combat are typical of a souls-like — it's not for the feint of heart — however, it can be played with one friend via local or online co-op. 

Hellpoint is on sale for US$4.49 during the Steam Autumn Sale until November 28.

Games like Hellpoint are best enjoyed with a controller, so snag an 8Bitdo Ultimate Bluetooth Controller with Hall Effect Sensing Joystick and Charging Dock on Amazon.

3. It Takes Two - 70% off

It Takes Two is an adventure puzzle platformer that was designed as a two-player experience. The game follows the journey of a husband and wife who were turned into dolls and must find a way out of their predicament while also navigating the emotional minefield of a broken relationship.

It Takes Two pushes players to work together to solve problems using their character's strengths to their advantage. As they navigate the world as tiny versions of themselves, Cody and May must avoid danger at every turn and find a way to reverse the spell. 

As a classic two-player experience, It Takes Two can be played in split-screen co-op or online with separate computers via the free friend pass available to buyers of the main game on Steam.

It Takes Two is US$11.99 on Steam during the Steam Autumn Sale.

4. Guilty Gear Strive - 50% off

Guilty Gear Strive is for lovers of the fighting game genre that want something other than the typical realistic graphics and gore-focussed fighting of the likes of the Mortal Kombat franchise. Strive's 2D/3D-hybrid anime graphic style gives it a unique twist that has allowed the artists to imbue the game with a degree of spectacle and visual flair.

Guilty Gear Strive is designed to be both easy enough for beginners to pick up, and deep enough for fighting game veterans to enjoy, while the heavy metal soundtrack is there to amp up the action even further.

Guilty Gear Strive is just US$9.99 as part of the Steam Autumn Sale until November 28.
