Best Minecraft Maps To Play With Friends

Minecraft is often regarded as one of the greatest games of all time as well as a fantastic choice of multiplayer game for friends. Needless to say, it has become monumental with its multiplayer experience ever since its conception back in 2011.

As such, the community began creating maps that would take the game’s unique play style and survival aspects to new lands. With the advent of many iconic maps such as Skyblock or Five Nights At Mickeys, Minecraft has a ton of maps that can be enjoyed with good company to create some truly awesome memories.


5/5 Soulbound

Soulbound is a great map for those looking to use their heads to prevail. Delivering on promises of both action and suspense, Soulbound will take you across 12 levels of puzzle solving, boss-slaying, story packed thrill and adventure. It features seven to 12 hours of gameplay, so you can expect a ton of fun between you and the friend you take along on the journey.

The game even has unique resource packs for designated players one and two. Player one uses a bow, and is allowed to initiate dialogue with NPCs, while player two uses a sword but cannot initiate dialogue. In those many hours of gameplay, you can expect boss fights, custom soundtracks and textures, and puzzles. This map is great for those seeking more of a head-scratching twist to an otherwise action packed and gripping story.

4/5 Sword Of Light

If you’re a fan of Zelda and other games of a similar style, then the Sword of Light map is for you. You and a friend head to an unnamed land seeking a hidden treasure in the elusive “Cliffside Temple” while locals whisper rumors of a “Dark Power” and monsters. The gameplay centers around puzzle solving, parkour-focused dungeon crawling, and slaying monsters while you look for the unnamed treasure.

The map was also hand-crafted, meaning no world editor was used in its creation. The creator of the map, Spaniel, also says the map was in development for nearly four years, so no need to worry about a lack of polish with this one. It’s a perfect map to enjoy with friends when the market is looking dry and none of your other games are catching your eye.

3/5 Payday 2: Endgame

Payday 2: Endgame is good enough to have been a standalone spinoff from the developers of the Payday series, giving us the golden opportunity to see our favorites from Payday in all of their blocky glory. With four player co-op, seven heists, and three major locations, this is a fantastic choice for when you want to have casual fun with friends. Four of the maps missions are based on Payday 2 missions, so there’s a good bit of nostalgia if you’re a long-time player.

The only downside to this map is that there’s only about one to three hours of gameplay. It really is a great option for anyone, from the casual player all the way up to the most hardcore Payday fans. The scenarios of the heists are great as well. You can steal from an old guy on New Year’s Eve — how cool is that?

2/5 Miscommunications 2

Do you and your friends struggle with call-outs during games? If you’re looking to strengthen your bond as a team, this is the map for you. Miscommunications 2 is one of the funniest maps available simply because of the premise: you and three friends try to solve puzzles, but are limited in the words you can use. As you may have guessed, it’s bound to devolve into total chaos.

The map has seven puzzles total, three of which return from the previous installment of Miscommunications. The puzzle rules are determined by you and your friends, so it can be as difficult as you’d like. The map will take around three hours or less from start to completion, depending on how you well you can communicate. That being said, buckle up and get ready for agonizing headaches and joyful laughter as you work your way through the trials of the map.

1/5 Coldest Winter

Coldest Winter starts off with a scene very similar to the opening of The Forest, with a plane crash and you being thrust into a survival situation. This map is split into two parts and requires four players to play. Grab your friends and your jackets because the temperature is not your friend in this map. Part 1 of the map is all about surviving in a brutal environment that is far more difficult than your average Minecraft world; however, not all is as it seems.

As you make your way into phase two, you and your companions come across a mansion that makes for a welcome shelter from the desolate tundra. While you make your way through the winding hallways and explore, you may notice that this mansion is a bit more than just a safe haven from the sub-zero exterior. Littered through the mansion are strange secrets and hidden crawlspaces, but what purpose will they serve? It seems that you have far more worrisome adversaries than the frigid cold.
