Complexity of the games is one big factor in making them successful. Gamers don’t want to feel like they’re being dumbed down. But, they also don’t want the game to be so complicated making it non-enjoyable. The beauty in the role-playing PS5 games today is in how these games are perfectly blended to achieve that difficult mix of complexity and accessibility.

There are many factors to consider in a good RPG PS5 game. From the game’s story and lore, the video card requirement, and other tech specs, to how quickly players can finish the game. It pays to know which ones out there are the best RPGs for serious upcoming PS5 gamers.

How do you decide which game to pick first? Fortunately, we’ve made it simple for you. Read our list below and you will find out the best RPG game for PS5!

Upcoming Role-Playing Games (RPGs) For PS5

1. Godfall

Godfall

Pros
  • Fantastic bloody effects.
  • Engaging looter-slasher RPGs.
  • Single-, two-, three- player co-op mode.
  • No microtransactions.
  • Varied weapon system.
Cons
  • Not a cross-generation release.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Counterplay Games
Publisher: Gearbox
Release Date: Late 2020

Godfall is the game that can probably make a newbie player fall in love with the entire industry of PS5 RPGs. It’s got everything a beginner can love: riveting story, engaging visuals that will make players’ eyes pop, and an addictive weapons system that just gets more fun as you go deep into the game.

It’s safe to claim that Godfall’s the go-to PS5 RPG game if you want a reliable “looter-slasher.” You can play both alone and with friends. Gameplay details by Keith Lee (its director) made sure to satisfy a player’s nostalgia for games like Destiny 2. And because of that, Godfall delivers beyond what’s expected.

The weapons system is so varied and detailed that you’d love to just look at each piece and stare at them for how impressively beautiful they were animated. The enemies and bosses are so meticulously drawn out that you can’t help but be in awe.

You will be using melee weapons, not guns, so expect a lot of gratuitous graphic bloodshed that gamers are already immune to. Godfall is skill-based and gear-driven so there’s a lot of level-ups in this game that players surely won’t get enough of.

The armor upgrade system is under what the game creator calls “Valor Plates”. Weapons you can wield include dual blades, warhammers, polearms, and even greatswords. Gamers who want to replay the exotic and graphically violent scenes in Game of Thrones should knock themselves out well and beyond in Godfall.

2. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Assassin's Creed Valhalla

Pros
  • Brutal bloody visuals.
  • Vibrant scenery animation.
  • Unique raiding system for loot.
Cons
  • Repetitive quests.
  • Too many massive worlds and collectables.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Ubisoft Montreal
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release Date: November 17, 2020

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is the type of game that may remind you of all the standard, large-scale RPGs for PS4 (and of course, the upcoming PS5). Actually, nearly all but a few games in the RPG category have the same formulaic run. Ubisoft, this game’s developer, understands this problem and addresses that in Valhalla with much anticipated success.

Many players may have abandoned the Assassin’s Creed bandwagon because of the responsibilities of being an adult, but Valhalla can definitely lure them back in. The historical sights and period-accurate graphics are enchanting, at worst, and mind-expanding, at best. You cannot play Valhalla without feeling like you’ve also been in the actual location.

Truly, it’s not an exaggeration to say that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an absolutely rich and pitch-perfect game to escape a quarantine or lockdown state, if it’s still there when this game is finally out.

3. Horizon: Forbidden West

Horizon Forbidden West

Pros
  • True sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn.
  • Majestic graphics.
  • Vibrant immersive world.
  • Super fast loading.
Cons
  • Storyline not yet clear.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Guerrilla Games
Publisher: PlayStation Studios
Release Date: 2021

What we know about Horizon: Forbidden West for now is that it’s just, if not more, as vivid a storyline than its predecessor, the Horizon: Zero Dawn. You’ve never seen an open-world action RPG like this. The trailer hints that the storyline will follow from the previous one. This means you may still be playing the character Aloy and do the exploring.

The game is officially described to be the continuation of Aloy’s story as she moves to a futuristic America to face new challenges and a frontier filled with dangerous schemes. Awe-inspiring machines will confront you as you follow her quest, with probably more mystery than you can possibly imagine.

The setting is a refreshing view of post-apocalyptic California. This means you’d have to face the terror of what it looks like for San Francisco to be now a victim of Armageddon. Yosemite will likely also be featured.

The one good thing about the game is that there’s a guarantee of no loading screens. If you love underwater gameplay, this one right here will do the job, as it’s mostly designed for Aloy to explore seawater landscapes and monsters.

Prepare to be blown away with underwater ruined cities that you’ve likely never seen in other games. The sequel is indeed an amazing escape to a world here and there, but only in a game that PS5 can deliver.

It’s also a title where you encounter strange-looking half-monster half-machines. With the help of hostile tribes, you can harness their power. Immerse yourself in a world of Forbidden West where danger and delight lurks side-by-side to pump you up.

4. Outriders

Outriders

Pros
  • Complex custom characters.
  • Immersive skill tree.
  • Fascinating weapon variety.
  • Coop game in play.
  • No microtransactions.
Cons
  • Not a live service title.
  • Too many weapon mods.

Fast Facts:
Developer: People Can Fly
Publisher: Square Enix
Release Date: Late 2020

The upcoming PS5 game Outriders is a third-person RPG shooter type made possible by the Polish game creator, People Can Fly. Late 2020 will see its release and will excite gamers with its compelling characters.

You can choose four classes from the character options, and the unique abilities they have are more than enough to consume your free time all day. These include the Trickster, Pyromancer and the Devastator. They have skills ranging from unleashing seismic attacks to manipulating fire. Plus, the fourth character is still unrevealed for the classic game bait.

If you’re into shotguns and assault rifles to trigger-happy your way down against enemy lines, this is the game to pick. You get more fun and target-shooting practice by having all the weapon mods you can possibly imagine.

Looting is an added fun feature in this release, since you get more rewards in loot when you accomplish tasks in the higher-level worlds. Game difficulty here is called world level. And, the higher you go, the better quality loot you get from defeated enemies.

The premise of the game is basically humanity at the brink of existence. We are forced to colonize an alien planet called Enoch and we have gone astray when we’re entangled by a massive energy storm. This force of nature is called the Anomaly, and you navigate the entire game with the new superpowers you got from the energy storm.

You can knock yourself out with Outriders if you want to immerse in an incredible science-fiction universe where you don’t have to pay extra just to get the full experience. No pay-to-win scenarios. Just pure good gaming you get from the base price.

5. Starfield

Starfield

Pros
  • Trusted developer.
  • Awesome space storyline.
  • Realistic sci-fi.
Cons
  • Delayed release date.
  • Not cross generational.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Release Date: 2021

If you want to experience the next level in PS5 gaming, you’ll get it and more from Starfield. In fact, director and executive producer of Bethesda Game Studios himself, Todd Howard, promised that the game is being developed with next-generation tech in mind. And of course, this comes with improvements focused on new hardware.

While we mentioned above that there’s no cross-generational option with this one, the developer is not closing its mind. Let’s just hope there will be one so you can play this game even on other consoles.

Starfield is also a single-player game, as confirmed by the Senior Vice President of Marketing himself, Pete Hines. It’s a new IP though. So, that’s something to be excited about for those who want a classic, single-player RPG that players of different levels can easily understand.

It’s interesting to know that Starfield is a new IP made by Bethesda 25 years ago. This implies that you may experience a lot of effects, features, details, and ornaments — all of which will remind you of the Fallout or Elder Scrolls series. But rest assured, Starfield is a completely different direction.

There’s no mix-up with traditional medieval fantasy here or any of those post-apocalyptic formulas in PS5. This is pure sci-fi at its finest, and it better be since the competition is tough these days.

6. Little Devil Inside

Little Devil Inside

Pros
  • Engaging Zelda-like format.
  • Realistic atmosphere.
Cons
  • Eccentric storyline.
  • Timed console exclusive.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Neostream Interactive
Publisher: Neostream Interactive
Release Date: 2021 Or 2022

What makes Little Devil Inside one of the most thrilling, highly-anticipated games today is it’s been a planned release ever since 2015. The build-up may already be killing people. Right now, what we know is it will soon materialize into a solid action-adventure RPG.

The trailer itself is such a tease. You see a wide expanse of beautifully-crafted semi-open world. It’s an atmosphere of great imagination that’s even made more fantastic by the level of detail added into its realism.

This game was initiated as a Kickstarter plan based on a surreal vision of what it’s like to elevate the Zelda game format into higher levels of gaming. The title sure delivers that, with all the monsters and exotic creatures you are made to encounter all throughout your journey, as you try to survive and save the world from demons.

This isn’t just a game about killing arch-demons, though; It’s a game built also in the rich storyline you get from each of the characters you choose to play. Anyone looking for high-octane RPG missions to kill time away for days straight can get their kick from this one.

7. Project Althia

Project Althia

Pros
  • Made by makers of Final Fantasy XV.
  • Literary storyline.
  • For PS5 and PC.
Cons
  • Work in progress.
  • Same old format.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Luminous Productions
Publisher: Square Enix
Release Date: 2021

The best thing about Project Althia right now is probably the trust that gamers have for it. This is because it’s being made by the iconic game developers of the Final Fantasy Franchise. Other than that, there’s not that much to say about the game, except that it’s a next-gen fantasy action RPG made by Square Enix.

This one’s been shopped around in game bazaars and conferences as the Future of RPG Gaming, but that remains to be seen. We do know that there will be epic landscapes, a rich storyline, and detailed plots in the game, but that’s just about it. We’re treading thin ice here.

In the trailer though we see the main character, which we just presume to be Althia, jump off a mighty cliff and summon a necromancer. Yes, it’s added in the blurb that there will be truths to question, devotions to doubt, and Althia will rise. But, that’s probably not enough.

8. Demon’s Souls

Demon's Souls

Pros
  • Riveting action RPG.
  • Elevated graphics from PS3 release.
Cons
  • Standard Soulsborne format.
  • Unclear narratives.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Bluepoint Games, SIE Japan Studio
Publishers: Sony Computer Entertainment, Atlus USA, Namco Bandai Games
Release Date: TBA

It’s good that the developers finally made real its promise to follow up on the PS3 version of Demon’s Souls, with a better, elevated graphics generation system that competes against the leading RPGs today.

During a Sony game release event, it was shown that the creators did a decent remake of the original Demon’s Souls game. From the infamous details of the misty lake to natural rock formations and the popular Dragon God, new changes were made but still remained true to the core of the story.

The only downside we can think of is gamers might be worried this one will look like the standard Soulsborne format the developer is known to make. When the game is finally out, we’ll see if it goes beyond expectations.

Gamers will still experience the same details of the title here. The land where the game is set, Boletaria, is being consumed by what is called a Deep Fog. This is due to the pact between King Allant and the island creature known as the Old One. Players now get the chance to choose custom characters to stop the Deep Fog. And this can be achieved only by eliminating the Old One and King Allant.

These basic details point to a riveting story that you can ride with. All you have to do is kill demon souls and regain powers to advance into the game and save Boletaria.

9. Watch Dogs: Legion

Watch Dogs Legion

Pros
  • Cross generational.
  • Single- and multi-player.
  • Next gen action-adventure graphics.
Cons
  • Familiar plot.
  • Final content subject to change.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Ubisoft
Publisher: Ubisoft
Release Date: October 2020

This is it: Ubisoft is now near the date they promised to release one of the most-awaited games, Watch Dogs: Legion. And hopefully, it’ll be with us by October 2020.

This title keeps a lot of fans wanting for a lot of reasons. First, it’s made by Ubisoft, a leading creator and publisher of games. It’s a title that goes along with multi-successful franchises such as Assassin’s Creed.

Apart from the naturally-elevated level of fancy graphics for this one, it’s a stand out for gamers because they can play it even with their PS4. Yes, it’s not PS5 exclusive, and that’s a reason to rejoice.

Add to the fact that in the Xbox version of the game, you can immerse yourself in a fantastic reimagining of London. It’s never before seen, using next-gen tech not yet used elsewhere.

The game’s plot continues after Watch Dogs 2. This one happens three years after its predecessor, where the development of automation and AI has turned London into a mess. You navigate this chaos as one of the players in a co-op-style third-person perspective, where you take missions fulfilling your heart’s content. The only difference from the previous release is you now have the ability to recruit characters via multiplayer mode.

10. Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong

Vampire The Masquerade Swansong

Pros
  • Narrative-driven.
  • Cross platform.
Cons
  • Only single-player mode.
  • Too familiar plot.

Fast Facts:
Developer: BIG BAD WOLF Studio
Publisher: Nacon
Release Date: 2021

Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong’s renown comes from the fact that its synopsis, gameplay, and hype have been up to the highest standards lately. To be published in 2021, this narrative-driven game has its added edge in a mode that allows you to play multiple characters.

You can choose from three different vampires, from different clans within what is called the Camarilla organization. The role of the org is to uphold the status quo of vampire dominance, and you play the game by weaving through this premise and confronting the different points of view of the characters. Conspiracy, murder, intrigue, and pretty much everything you can expect from Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight series are here. So, knock yourself out with such drama.

An added visual experience in this RPG game is its vivid imagery of Boston from the 1990’s. It was developed as a tribute to The Vampire: Masquerade, using the tabletop games Dark Colony and Giovanni Chronicles as their inspiration.

If you like 18th century gothic vampire drama with mystery so tight and engaging, then this is the game to watch out for. It will be released in 2021, but we’re not sure yet. The dark fantasy you will experience in this game is enough to consume all your hours. There’s probably nothing here that you haven’t essentially experienced in other RPGs, except that the developer added extra details to make it well worth your time.

The Top PS5 Role-Playing Games You Can Order Today!

In this list, you’ll find PS4 RPGs you can grab for PS5. Since the upcoming gaming console is backwards compatible, you can play these titles with ease. And it’s expected that you’ll play most of the game with less (or even no) hitches because the PS5 is considerably more powerful than the PS4.

11. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt

Pros
  • Engaging even after 100 hours.
  • Exhilarating fantasy.
  • Vast storylines and worlds.
Cons
  • Quests feel mundane.
  • Tech glitches.

Fast Facts:
Developer: CD Projekt Red
Publisher: CD Projekt
Release Date: May 2015

What defines The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is its richer graphics and storylines that involve intrigue and romantic drama compared to the previous release. There may be a few glitches you may experience, but other than that, the open-world map of the game is too big to explore in one sitting.

Flashes of greatness are spread all over this title, as you begin the story with a multi-continent search for the long-lost lover of Geralt, Yennifer. The riveting story makes a lot of players drool for more. It feels exhilarating to explore the open world with all the creatures and the side quests.

The good overwhelms the bad, and with this one, there’s far more excellent dialogue and emotional payoff from its scenes than the bad glitches. So overall, this game is still worth checking out.

It’s an added pleasure to know that you can get the full-on game experience without feeling shortchanged. It’s a standalone game that’s not dependent on the previous release. That’s something gamers who don’t have too much luxury of play time can appreciate,

12. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim

Pros
  • Rich intriguing characters.
  • Profound storyline.
Cons
  • Plot needs polishing.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Release Date: November 2011

If you want a massive world to get lost in coupled with great characters to play, then The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the game to grab. It’s got all the responsive combat and interesting menial tasks you need to spend your vacant hours away. You’ll also love this game if you want to feel like you’ve outsmarted your foes. Plus, it’s a great pick if you want to live the life of Dragonborn, the main star, in extracting justice and defeating Alduin, the World-Eater.

There’s a lot to explore, too, in the game’s weapon and armor crafting, as well as in maximizing the strength and skill build in your character. You’ll enjoy the entertaining premise of this story that revolves around the events happening at the northernmost province of Tamriel in Skyrim.

The lovely visual universe and the incredible value package in the game will definitely make you overlook some of the bugs and the inferior PS5 version that this game has over its PC alternative. This game is still definitely like Skyrim, and that’s both a good or a bad thing. There are hundreds of hours of entertainment with this title. And the bizarre, outlandish plot and visuals you encounter makes you want to get more hours of play.

There may be inferior rewards compared to the previous Skyrim release, but the journey is reward itself. You may even wait for 50 hours first before you begin to feel like the game’s worth it. Slow burn at its finest.

13. Kingdom Hearts III

Kingdom Hearts 3

Pros
  • Amazing graphics.
  • Vast worlds to explore.
  • Fantastic keyblade transformations.
Cons
  • Off pacing.
  • Lack of keyblades selection.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Square Enix Business Division 3
Publisher: Square Enix
Release Date: January 2019

The first thing to appreciate about Kingdom Hearts III is its graphics — it’s one of a kind, amazingly a stand out. The title boasts of a massive world that seems to defy all the rules that govern physics. Plus, it has combat explorations and keyblade transformations like nothing else.

You may love the concept behind the game that began as far back as 2005 when it was just released in Japan. The game’s plot is set after Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. You’ll play the returning protagonist Sora, who will be joined by other interesting characters, such as Donald Duck, Riku and King Mickey.

Another interesting part here is its ability to pull off integrating the worlds of the strictly restrictive intellectual property rights of Disney. As you may know, Disney and Pixar intellectual properties are tight with their legal ownership. But, you’re able to play some of their characters in this game at your child’s delight. The fun gameplay options you can have will get you to explore hidden Mickey emblems. In addition, you can discover details of a world that allows you to pilot your own ship on the high seas.

14. Final Fantasy XV Deluxe Edition

Final Fantasy Xv Deluxe Edition

Pros
  • Magical open world.
  • Excellent weapon system.
  • Emotionally engaging.
Cons
  • Cross generation glitches.
  • Quests are too easy.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Square Enix Business Division
Publisher: Square Enix
Release Date: November 2016

Varied combat scenes in Final Fantasy XV Deluxe Edition will be full of lovingly-detailed levels that’ll make you feel you’re a kid again. However, there’s something lacking and lackluster in the technical improvements made in this release resulting in stagnant pacing. The plot is also filled with slow dialogue. But, that’s nothing compared to the level of visual resolution you get that’s just pure-on delight.

The game happens in a fantasy world called Eos and a place called Lucis. This kingdom is dominated by the Niflheim empire who wants to conquer and control a magical crystal protected by the Lucian royal family.

You explore the game around this mess, with a visually engaging battle system that’s based on an action-based real-time format. This system is called the Active Cross Battle and it makes the title a consistently-fun RPG game. The urgency of the storyline around the characters in the game, including Noctis Lucis Caelum, the main protagonist, makes Final Fantasy still worth checking out.

15. Bloodborne

Bloodborne

Pros
  • Customizable protagonist.
  • Intriguing cosmic plot.
  • Critically acclaimed.
Cons
  • Occasional bugs.

Fast Facts:
Developer: FromSoftware
Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
Release Date: March 2015

If you’re looking for a fun, challenging gameplay in your RPG that has great visuals and plenty of value, you’d be hard pressed to find anything better than Bloodborne. Sure, the watered gameplay of the plot needs some work and the occasional bugs leave it wanting. But, if you go over these and explore the interesting portals in the game, it’ll be more than compensating.

There’s a newer style of gameplay in Bloodborne from the previous Souls series without losing the core components that make the predecessors fantastic. The challenging gameplay comes very well with the side content supplemented in the storyline. Overall, in terms of gameplay, graphics, audio and replay value, you get the game you deserve with Bloodborne.

16. Dark Souls 3: The Fire Fades Edition

Dark Souls 3 The Fire Fades Edition

Pros
  • Generation’s finest.
  • Incredible detail.
  • Addictive quests.
Cons
  • Bad plot slowdown.
  • Popped texture.

Fast Facts:
Developer: FromSoftware
Publisher: Bandai Namco Entertainment
Release Date: April 2017

Dark Souls III is a game that seems to be designed to get you hooked into solving puzzles you almost want to give up on. An hour later, you’re back into the game. You try with luck and perseverance to solve it, and once you get it finally right, fulfillment becomes your reward.

There’s an array of visual treats to expect here from gargantuan castles around a place called Lothric to the thrilling tasks you get from being the Ashen One. As a previously-deceased entity now revived to defeat the Lords of Cinder, you get an accessible game that can elevate your RPG experience like never before. It’s safe to say that few games out there come nearly as rewarding as Dark Souls.

17. Horizon: Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn

Pros
  • Riveting open world.
  • Eclectic gameplay elements.
  • Fascinating combat scenes.
Cons
  • Ridiculous scenarios.
  • Tedious tasks.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Guerrilla Games
Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Release Date: February 2017

If you’re looking for a game that can relive the adventure of Diablo and Far Cry Primal, Horizon: Zero Dawn is one title to opt for. It’s a familiar RPG format to most gamers, with robots and storylines that are simple but full of complexity that reward you the feeling of beating strong foes.

The game keeps fights interesting by testing your knowledge and execution. You should understand your foes including their weaknesses and vulnerabilities. The highlight is your ability to disarm your enemies and use their own weapons against them. Cool, right? 1

18. Fallout 4

Fallout 4

Pros
  • Set in 2287.
  • Brilliant realism.
  • Max player freedom.
Cons
  • Minor glitches.
  • Crumbly storytelling.

Fast Facts:
Developer: Bethesda Game Studios
Publisher: Bethesda Softworks
Release Date: November 2015

Fallout 4 may have a problem with the lousy conversations and storytelling, but that’s nothing compared to the engaging, well-detailed, and realistic setpieces it showcases from start to finish. With a stunning visual imagery of Massachusetts, you can grab this game to experience how to defy Physics.

An interesting premise is that the game is set in 2287, ten years after the events of Fallout 3. You navigate the game across a catastrophic nuclear devastation all over the US. We can say that radiation-infected monsters (and even pets) roam the ransacked lands. And, you must up your game to defeat your enemies in the form of hideous creatures.

Equipment tweaks aren’t the only items you can craft. You can customize settlements to your liking. Once the locals start to like you, managing entire villages, towns, and huts will be another task to accomplish. You can even handle their defenses and food supplies.

The beauty of Fallout 4 is in its variety. Apart from completing the main storyline, you can go for side quests which had me looking for the lost cat of a poor girl. Overall, you’ll find the visuals and uniqueness of the game intriguing.

19. Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077

Pros
  • Outstanding graphics.
  • Filmic scenes.
  • Rich 3D sounds.
Cons
  • Too nihilistic.
  • Depressing.

Fast Facts:
Developer: CD Projekt Red
Publisher: CD Projekt
Release Date: November 2020

Cyberpunk 2077 may be a sad space for young kids, but for adult gamers, this is an art piece to live an experience like no other. You live in an alternative America that’s darker, more aggressive, and just full-on depressing. Don’t worry, though. The beautiful graphics and storyline will redeem you back to your default love for this RPG.

20. NieR: Automata

Nier Automata

Pros
  • Complex twists.
  • Multiple playthroughs.
  • Addictive gameplay.
Cons
  • Ending is underwhelming.
  • Foes look the same.

Fast Facts:
Developer: PlatinumGames
Publisher: Square Enix
Release Date: February 2017

This role-playing game is a proxy war against aliens and robots. You can play as a combat android where the game becomes more intense as you work on it for longer hours. The storyline is set thousands of years from now when humans have gone to the moon. Aliens have already taken over the Earth.

Sometimes, it can be frustrating to play this title. The open world can be difficult to navigate. But, it’s still downright ingenious. Systems and setpieces can be both delightful and weird, in a good way. Overall, you can knock yourself out with NieR: Automata’s complex gameplay and story elements that you see nowhere else.
