What is an RPG game? An RPG or a role-playing game is one of the most popular game types where players take on the roles of the characters in the game by taking their quests in a fictional or fantasy setting. Players take responsibility by acting the roles out of a narrative, either through a process of structured optional decision making or verbatim acting. It is one of the most popular types of games enjoyed by the modern generation. In 2018 gamers are expecting some of the most awaited RPG games ever created.

This game was developed by Warhorse Studios, published by Warhorse Studios and Deep Silver on PC, Play Station 4 and Xbox 1. It was released on February 13, 2018. It is an action role playing game that is set during the early fifteenth century. The storyline is about Henry, son of a blacksmith who witnessed his parents untimely death during the civil war. It is a quest for revenge and is quite a long journey. This is a first person RPG game that’s more suited for gamers who are more hooked on historically based video games rather than those imagined to be in a fantasy setting similar to medieval periods. Gamers need to go through the long storyline to develop their skills.

3. Vampyr

This game was developed by Dontnod Entertainment and published by Focus Home Interactive. It is scheduled to be released on June 9 on PC, PS4 and XBOX. The story takes place during the Spanish flu plague in London in 1918. Here, players take the role of Doctor Jonathan Reid as he remains true to his oath while going against his special condition. He is a vampire and has a nature of being thirsty for blood, which is the exact opposite of his profession, a doctor. It is an action role playing game where players can navigate around the world while leveling Jonathan up to gain new skills and abilities through the skill tree. The special structure of the skill tree allows gamers to use several unique gameplay strategies available.

4. Darksiders 3

Darksiders 3 was developed by Gunfire Games and published by THQ Nordic. It will be available on PC, PS4, and XBOX but it’s still without a specific release date in 2018. The game franchise continues as an action role playing game with a ton of excitement and adventure. There hasn’t been much information released so far, but the setting will take place in the same universe as the other video game releases. Fury, the protagonist, is one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. He is on a mission to put an end to the Seven Deadly Sins. That’s pretty much what we know right now. Let’s just wait and see what Gunfire and THQ Nordic has prepared for all of us.

5. Final Fantasy 15

newest rpg games

This classic role playing game was developed by Square Enix and is set to be released early this year. FF15 could be all about mild sulking, long drives, and uncontrolled use of elemental effects during an action fight system. Similar to the previous Final Fantasy games, it deviates from the ones before when it comes to style and setting but still has the common subjects and epitomes: crystal, throne and chaos. Who isn’t excited for the comeback of one of the most classic, if not the longest running, role playing games? Watch out for FF15!

These are just the top five, there are a lot more that didn’t make this list, but these are certainly a great start. Time for you to choose which of the newest RPG video games to grab first!
