The biggest online games of 2018, so far

June 15, 2018

It’s 2018 and the world of online gaming shows no signs of slowing down. We take a look at some of the biggest online games at the moment.

As more people get connected with Fibre to the Home, gamers are able to download hosts of games faster than ever before and achieve new levels of smooth and efficient gameplay. One of the greatest aspects of online gaming, especially for kids and teens, is the ability to connect via online multiplayer games no matter where they are in the world. This makes it an awesome way for them to create and build friendships and keep in touch with friends who live near or far.

MINECRAFT, originally released in 2011, is still topping the charts as one of the most popular online games. It allows players to develop their creativity by exploring, resource gathering and building structures with a variety of different cubes. There are several modes within the game ranging from Survival Mode to Creative Mode, Adventure Mode or Hardcore Mode where a player is only given one life so survival is pushed to the max.

For older gamers, there are a whole host of strategic, combative and co-operative games that open up a variety of detailed new worlds to explore. Two of the highest rated online games at the moment include:

FORTNITE, a co-operative survival game set on Earth after an apocalyptic style storm where nearly all of the world’s population has disappeared. The survivors have various missions to collect resources, build defence forts and set traps to defend against hordes of zombie-like creatures. Most recently Fortnite has added a new element to the game by introducing their own battle royale mode, which combines the exploration and scavenging element of a survival game with last man standing game play.

PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS or PUBG to those in the know, is a battle royale game where up to a hundred players can parachute onto an island to prowl for weapons and artillery to kill enemies and avoid their own demise. Players can compete individually or in teams of up to four. During the game the areas that are deemed “safe spaces” on the map decrease in size, constricting the players into situations with more forced encounters. As in typical battle, the last player or team left alive wins the round. PUBG can be played by people of any skill level and has been deemed highly re-playable by critics and gamers alike.


With the advent of Home Fibre (FTTH) gamers can now rely on high-speed Internet to give them the best possible gaming experience.
