TOP 10 Xbox One RPG Games

10. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

The renowned world of Deus Ex really came to life on the Xbox One in Mankind Divided, putting players in the shoes of the ultimate augmented covert agent. With a vast array of weapons and abilities, the game truly becomes a personal experience as your actions play a crucial role in determining the game’s outcome. With a stunningly detailed world, rewarding gameplay and slick visuals, Mankind Divided is an incredible example of the RPG genre on next-gen consoles.

9. Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor

Ever since the incredible Lord of the Rings film trilogy, gamers have wanted to explore Middle Earth. Thankfully, Shadow of Mordor came along and delivered a stunning and authentic RPG experience within Tolkien’s universe that ticks all the boxes. Based on the player’s actions, the superb Nemesis System means each enemy encountered is distinct and can become a personal arch-enemy throughout the game. With the usual skill progression and thrilling open-world, Shadow of Mordor is a fantastic experience for fans and newcomers to Middle Earth.

8. South Park: The Fractured But Whole

Combining retro RPG elements with the hilariously crude humour we’ve come to expect from South Park, The Fractured But Whole is clearly made by a team passionate for the genre. The game plays brilliantly, with the turn-based combat system feeling particularly polished. The game truly shines with its humour, though – just be advised, this one totally earns its 18 age rating! A hilarious and ridiculously fun game.

7. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey

Assassin’s Creed is one of the most successful franchises in modern gaming, and yet Odyssey – the 21st title overall in the series – is arguably the first to truly play like an RPG. With dialogue options, branching quests and multiple endings, the game feels far more open than previous entries. Phenomenal visuals and an incredibly vast, richly-detailed world make Odyssey feel like a truly special experience, while the option to play as either a male or female character is refreshing in the series.

6. Diablo: Eternal Collection

The Diablo Eternal Collection delivers an unparalleled RPG experience, combining the incredible Diablo III with the Reaper of Souls expansion set and the Necromancer class. Rammed with hours and hours of gameplay, this legendary experience gives players the option to choose one of seven character classes and are tasked with defeating the Lord of Terror, Diablo. With endless loot to collect and enemies to defeat, Diablo will keep you busy for eternity.

5. Dark Souls 3

Are you ready to journey back into the world of Dark Souls? This stunningly realised fantasy world is full of atmospheric terror and is waiting for you to embark on a journey. Are you brave enough? As you battle colossal enemies and frightening environments, you will become lost in the phenomenally immersive world thanks to breath-taking visuals and rewarding gameplay. Dark Souls 3 is a masterpiece of modern gaming and a worthy conclusion to the much-loved series.

4. Dragon Age: Inquisition

The third instalment to the Dragon Age series, Inquisition puts you in the shoes of an Inquisitor on a grand journey to deal with civil unrest in Thedas. With a focus on exploration (the map is five times larger than that of the first game in the beloved series), the game is absolutely rammed with content – not to mention a stunning story that is influenced by tough character choices throughout the game. This stunning and immersive game is up there with the best of the RPG genre.

3. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Fus-ro-dah! It simply isn’t a gaming best-of list without keeping a spot for Skyrim, and for good reason. This fantasy epic – now available in everything from VR to handheld – is at its best when played on a good old-fashioned home console, and the Xbox One edition enhances the original game to staggering new heights. The living, breathing world of Tamriel is an absolute beauty on the Xbox One and still looks, feels and plays as good as ever. A masterpiece.

2. Fallout 4

With an unprecedented scale and a truly staggering amount of quests, collectables and levelling up, Fallout 4 is a game that will consume your life – in the best possible way. This richly designed post-apocalyptic wasteland is bursting with content, not to mention improved gunplay and combat mechanics since the critically-acclaimed Fallout 3. Fallout 4 is an essential RPG that reminds us what next-gen consoles are capable of.

1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Set in a staggeringly huge and gorgeous world, The Witcher 3 is widely – and rightly – considered the finest game on the Xbox One. A masterpiece of design, storytelling and combat, you control iconic hero Geralt of Rivia as you embark on a thrilling main story and endless side-quests, each of which packed with enough excitement and intrigue to rival most games’ main narratives. An essential and rewarding example of modern gaming at its finest.
