Everyone loves a good RPG. In these games, there’s usually a journey for the players to go on, and they usually have some amazing storylines with them. Each year, we got new RPG games to play, so now that we’re moving from the PlayStation 4 to the PlayStation 5, we’re looking back at the games that were released on the platform. The best RPG games for the PlayStation 4 aren’t set in stone, but these are some of our favourite picks.
There is an action role-playing game called Elex 2. It came out in 2017. By Piranha Bytes and THQ Nordic. This game has been called “edgy, dark, uncompromising, and complex.” It has elements of both science fiction and fantasy. After the world has been destroyed, the protagonist takes part in a war where people are fighting for the powerful resource “Elex,” which gives people magical powers. This game is called Elex 2. Future and mediaeval places are mixed together in this game. Players can use guns, swords and magic to fight off their enemies. Playstation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC are the places where gamers can find Elex 2 in the game. I think you should check it out if you like science fiction and action RPGs.
There are some things about Scarlet Nexus that make it a little different from other games. As a player in this game, you get an action RPG. Here, the game takes place in a different world where mutated creatures terrorise people and kill them. To fight these creatures, a special group of people was put in charge of the fight at that place. However, each member of the task force has his or her own set of skills. As for our protagonist, we can use telekinesis, where you can pick up things and throw them at the enemy. There are also other characters who can join in and help you fight. They each have their own unique abilities that can help you in the fight. This is also not a very long video game. The main story will only take about twenty-five hours to finish.
Tales of Arise
Because this game has been around for a long time, there is a good chance you already know about it. Even though Tales of Arise has a long history, don’t write it off because of that. This movie series may have been around for a long time, but most of the movies are stand-alone movies. That’s what Tales of Arise has to offer. This is a new game with its own story and characters. There are still the same gameplay mechanics that have been used in other games. This is an action RPG, which means you move around a lot and have a lot of freedom when you fight.
During Tales of Arise, players are put into a story about two planets. There are two planets: one that has a lot of technology, and the other that doesn’t have as much. People on an advanced planet are keeping another planet as a slave. Our story picks up with a group of people who want to end the rule. It has been around for a while, but the IP has become a little more popular recently. This one has already become the fastest-selling one in the whole series. If you’re looking for something new, then this is a game worth looking into, even if you’re already a fan.
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition
There are a few well-known companies that have made great RPGs in the past, like Square Enix and BioWare. One of them is BioWare. This development team has made a name for itself over the years. One of the series that is still talked about long after it was released is the Mass Effect series. The first three games in the series were an epic space opera. With a lot of interesting characters, unique environments, and action-packed third-person shooting, you had a lot to keep you busy in this game!
One of the reasons people were excited for the three-part epic was that there were options for them to choose from. If you made a certain choice, there might be some consequences. This was added to as the developers worked on each new video game. Fortunately, the developers decided to go back and offer players a chance to play through the past three mainline installments with a remastered collection. As a bonus, you can also enjoy these games with better graphics thanks to the DLC.
Final Fantasy VII Remake
There is no need for us to tell you that Final Fantasy is one of the best RPGs ever made. It’s been around for a long time now, and so many people grew up playing the mainline games and the spin-offs. Final Fantasy VII is one of the most well-known games in the series. It was made for the PlayStation and told the story of Cloud Strife and his efforts to stop the corrupt Shinra megacorporation.
In the past, fans have been asking Square Enix to make the game for newer devices. Square Enix finally agreed to make a new version of Final Fantasy VII for the PlayStation 4, which came out in 2020, after a lot of people asked. A turn-based RPG combat system was changed to an action RPG combat system, but the story is mostly the same. Many people who wanted to really get into the game will find that the story isn’t done. Instead, this is a game that will be released in parts. Players will only be able to play the first part of the game at first.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
Bethesda is best known for Fallout and The Elder Scrolls, two big games that people love to play. The latter has been praised for a long time because fans have really enjoyed the journey this studio took in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which was made by this company. Before Skyrim, the game was set in a world that was open and had a lot of exploration, wonder, and lots of quests. Skyrim is no different. You can spend a lot of time in this fantasy world, and we’d be surprised if any gamer hasn’t been on this journey yet. If you have yet to do so, pick up The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition as it comes with past DLC and begin to weave your very own tale as a person who narrowly escapes a quick death and instead begins a story that involves mysterious factions, thieves, dragon-slaying, and a massive war set across this fantasy world.
Bloodborne’s twisted take on the Cthulhu legends is sure to be one of the most memorable PS4 games of all time. It features perfect combat against a sprawling gothic world. Yharnam’s cobbled streets are a character in and of themselves, as Victorian districts fold and overlap and form the backdrop for some of the best fights you’ll find on any platform. It’s a show-stopper in both art direction and game design, and it’s one of Sony’s most exciting new projects.
The Outer Worlds
The Outer Worlds is a great example of how to make a role-playing game. Obsidian, a well-known game studio, has made a great sci-fi game that looks a lot like Fallout: New Vegas and Mass Effect, but with even more emphasis on player choice. It’s a great adventure through the seemingly doomed space colony of Halcyon thanks to witty writing, great characters, and fast-paced fights. There aren’t many games on this list that are as good as The Outer Worlds when it comes to pure role-playing excellence.
