This game’s historical time period is related to the European region of Bohemia, where you’ll be able to encounter some of the most famous real-life personalities. In this game, your choices have an affect on everyone you meet along the way. The journey itself is open to your interpretation. And most crucially, the first-person perspective for this action RPG will put you even closer to the fighting system’s astounding realism.
2. ‘Chivalry: Medieval Warfare’
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare should pique your interest if games like Mount & Blade and Age of Chivalry have done so in the past. In this multiplayer-focused swords and shields game, you’ll have no shortage of soldiers, castles to conquer, and villages to pillage. The online arena in this medieval treasure may host up to 32 players, each with access to an arsenal of more than 60 weapons. In Chivalry: Medieval Warfare, you and your fellow chivalric knights will have the time of their lives.
It’s a first-person battle arena game like the previous one on our list, MORDHAU. Think about your camera preference when it’s time to slay your adversaries and remember that you can also do damage from a third-person perspective. You have the option to fight for your life in small-scale fights or to engage in furious combat with up to 80 other players in settings with high player counts. This game’s savagery is expectedly out of this world, and you’ll never get tired of pouring gallons of blood during each epic battle.
4. ‘For Honor’
For Honor, Ubisoft ventured away from its open-world comfort zone for a change and came up with a unique take on the fighting game genre. While the game’s single-player story is completely realized, the game’s multiplayer modes are where its strongest features may be found. Legendary warriors from four historical classes can face off against each other in fantasy battles. Whoever wins this fight will be crowned champion of the world of swords and sorcery. There are so many things to do in For Honor right now that it’s hard to keep up with them all. You’ll fall in love with the rest of this game’s war-fueled lunacy if you can master the battle system.
5. ‘Middle-earth: Shadow of War’
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor’s Nemesis System revolutionized the role-playing game industry in general. When it comes to building a great army in Middle-earth: Shadow of War, Talion has the opportunity to recruit the Uruks and Ologs. As you seek to battle Sauron’s army and slay his most ferocious warriors, this Lord of the Rings-inspired adventure takes you across its dark realm.

If you’ve ever wanted to re-enact some of the epic battles in the movies, you can now do it in Middle-earth: Shadow of War.
6. ‘The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’
Despite the fact that it’s accessible on nearly every console, the medieval fantasy, action-RPG classic is still worth a look. With dragons and other mythical creatures to fight, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim makes up for its lack of large-scale conflicts. It’s packed with citizens, groups to join, and fascinating side-quest tales to follow. Being able to impart agony with your bespoke dual-wielding configuration in Skyrim’s intense first-person melee/magic battle systems is sheer bliss.
7. ‘Total War: Medieval II’.
Creative Assembly is the development studio behind Sega’s best-known strategic RPG series. Japanese, Viking, and Roman sagas have all been explored in previous Total War games. Total War: Medieval II is a standout entry in the series, which places you in command of a medieval realm and its armies. As one of the other 17 factions, you are tasked with conquering the others in the campaign. While sustaining an entire region is a complicated task, you can instead focus on the game’s brutal real-time fights. This is a must-have for anyone who enjoys strategic medieval combat.
8. ‘Totally Accurate Battle Simulator’
Check out this RPG-themed satire on the strategy genre. Your valiant troops are unleashed on their foes as you lead them into battle. As you watch the over-the-top ragdoll physics of this game send its victims flying across the battlefield, get ready to belt out a few chuckles. It’s not a surprise that one of the 12 factions is of the medieval variety. From a third- or first-person perspective, you can participate in battles and build your own units. To put it mildly, Totally Accurate War Simulator is one of the best-looking and best-playing battle sims out there.
9. ‘Gloria Victis’
Gloria Victis prides itself on its depiction of medieval times as accurate as possible. Mount and Blade and Planetside 2 fans should enjoy it, which is why it’s been given such high praise. You can take on the role of a combatant and explore the huge environment of the game in any way you like. Quality MMORPGs like this one have regular battles, sieges that turn into mayhem, with guilds fighting for the control of their castles more often than not. In comparison to the other games on this list, Gloria Victis is the closest to a medieval era experience.
10. ‘Knights of Honor’
The PC game market is flooded with medieval strategic RPGs, and Knights of Honor is no exception. You’ve been placed in the shoes of a haughty monarch eager to expand his realm and make it the largest in the land. You’ll be able to employ your loyal knights to help you claim victory alongside the rest of your warriors if you’re expanding your influence. It’s great fun to manage your alliances and deal with a myriad of other diplomatic tasks, but it’s in the game’s epic army battles that Knights of Honor really shines. Do your best to rise to the top of Medieval Europe as one of the game’s more than 100 kingdoms vie for supremacy.
11. ‘Stronghold HD’
The real-time strategy game we’ll go on to next is yet another one with a strong focus on castle maintenance.
