A wonderful journey awaits you in Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance 2. To fill the void, there are a number of games that provide similar amusement.
Fans of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance II still regard the game as a classic nearly twenty years after its release. It was a 2004 release for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. Champions of Norrath, a PS2 exclusive with a similar gameplay concept, came out in 2004 as well. Sadly, both of these games have not been re-released subsequently, despite a great deal of interest from the gaming community.
Are there any plans for backward compatibility? For the time being, I’d like to propose a few more current titles. For the most part, these games include top-down action RPG gameplay, and many of them have multiplayer as well.
10 Diablo III
The PC version of Diablo III was released in 2012, but console versions, expansions, and numerous free updates have kept it relevant to this day. After nine years without a Wii U port, Nintendo was able to address the situation with a Switch port. This top-down hack and slash RPG contains classes, a wide array of weapons and spells, and a wide variety of gear. Best of all, four-player co-op is supported.
9 Torchlight III
Until recently, Torchlight III was the only Diablo clone to be released in 2013. PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and the newer platforms through backwards compatibility all enable four-player co-op. There are a lot of similarities in terms of gameplay, but the addition of pet companions helps set this series apart from the rest. It also has a more cheerful and less menacing feel to it, as well as a more bright color scheme. Even though Torchlight II is an older game, it’s still worth playing.
8 Dragon’s Crown Pro
The PS Vita and PS3 versions of this game were released in 2013. There would be no HD remaster on PS4 in 2018 if it weren’t for this four-player co-op game.
Final Fight-style brawlers and RPG features from Dark Alliance and Diablo III are incorporated into a 2D brawler. Choose a class-specific character, form a party with your co-players, either locally or online, and head out into the world in search of treasure and XP.
7 Children Of Morta
Children of Morta deviates from what you may expect from a Dark Alliance fan. It’s a top-down roguelike fantasy game about a single family in a gloomy fantasy world. The crypts beneath the family home can be explored alone or with one other person. As long as you don’t lose anything of value and keep upgrading your character, dying in a roguelike is a rather tolerable experience. On the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch it was released in 2019.
6 Minecraft Dungeons
Earlier this year, Minecraft Dungeons was published on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch as well as PC. For a gaming family of four, it’s a terrific option to have a more family-friendly dungeon crawler. It’s not overly gruesome or long, so it’s a good fit for most audiences. It’s also easy enough for an older gamer to understand the controls, depth of the gear, and general growth. If you have Xbox Game Pass, it’s free for as long as you want it to be.
5 Dragon Quest Builders 2
This offshoot of Dragon Quest is a lot like Minecraft. That is to say, it is a role-playing game set in a Minecraft-like setting. You can also do things like build instead of just hacking away at your opponents. One drawback of the four-player co-op is that it can only be used in a specific part of the game. Because of this, the campaign isn’t co-op, but you may still have a good time building with your friends and slaughtering monsters even if the campaign isn’t. In 2019, it was made available on PC, PS4, and Nintendo Switch.
4 Gauntlet (2014)
As a result, it’s a little out of date when compared to the rest of the games featured. As a relaunch of the legendary arcade series, it debuted in 2014 and was only released on PS4 in 2015 as a single system port. This dungeon crawling experience can be enjoyed by up to four players, much like the traditional games. The branching pathway system is what sets it apart from the rest. For those who want to see everything, as well as try out and master every class, this provides replay value.
3 Darksiders Genesis
Developed in 2019 as a two-player, top-down RPG spin-off to the main series, this is a new take on the hack and slash apocalyptic action of the original. This means that even when compared to behemoths like Diablo III, the combat is still as fluid and robust as in the major games. The PC version was released in 2019, while the PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions were not released until 2020. For the first time in this series, Strife is a playable character in this prequel.
2 Snack World: The Dungeon Crawl Gold
The 3DS version of this game was released in Japan only in 2017. The West got its first look at it with this 2020 Switch port. Similar to Minecraft Dungeons, it’s a more kid-friendly adventure.
That doesn’t rule out a get-together with four adult friends and a wonderful time. Even if it’s not the deepest RPG on the market, it’s still a good choice for Dark Alliance aficionados.
1 The Elder Scrolls Online
Since The Elder Scrolls Online is an MMO, it can accommodate more than four players, making it the most epic multiplayer recommendation. Until now, it has been available on every major console save Nintendo’s. It’s not out of the question that it will come to Switch hardware in the future, given that it already has Skyrim. For June 8th, it will finally be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X. It has been seven years since the original release of the game, yet Bethesda has continued to release new content for it.
