Diablo 4 lady devil.

Are you looking to find games similar to Diablo IV? Then you have come to the right place. With the rocky start to the first Season of Blizzard’s aRPG, you may be looking for something else to conquer before the busy end of the year hits. Well, we’ve got you covered.

Whether you’re looking for another aRPG fix after Diablo 4, or looking for an alternative because you can’t play it yet, our list will provide you with seven of our favourite options. Let’s dive in and take a look. 

Top 7 Games Like Diablo 4

With so many aRPG titles out there, it can be tough to pick out your next one. We’ve ranked the seven best options that play like Diablo 4. That means you get to pick different classes and customize skills. Furthermore, they have to have similar isometric perspective, but most importantly, that they’re loot-driven.

7. Warhammer: Chaosbane

Combining the aRPG genre of games with the world of Warhammer Fantasy is a win-win in any book. Chaosbane lets you pick from five different classes and sends you on a long loot-filled quest in Warhammer’s gritty world. The combat and the campaign are the best parts of the game, requiring a tactical approach as much as furious mouse-clicking. It’s great if you never heard of Warhammer, and even better if you’re a fan of the miniature games that inspired it.

6. Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem

Looking at Wolcen, you may dismiss it as just “another Diablo clone”. However, this game has a few quirks that make it a much more appealing prospect. For example, nearly all of its maps are procedurally generated, so you can’t really “learn” them all. The combat is engaging and the story campaign is long and very involved. Honestly, it would likely rank higher if not for many server issues and frequent bugs that plague the game.

5. Torchlight 2

Torchlight 2 is the light-hearted, fun cousin to the Diablo-like family. The world is much more colorful and bright, and there is a stronger emphasis on humor. But that doesn’t detract from the stellar aRPG bones that this game has. Unsurprising, given that both Torchlight and Torchlight 2 were designed by devs who formerly worked on Diablo itself. It’s a great pick if you’re looking for a dungeon-crawler game that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

4. Last Epoch

There was a time when Last Epoch was considered a candidate for the best aRPG newcomer. While it’s still technically in Early Access and the game had its share of setbacks, it’s still a great one to check out. What sets it apart from many others is an innovative class and skill system. Through the use of subclasses and skill specialization, there is a larger emphasis on builds than in some of the other entries on this list.

3. Grim Dawn

The world of Grim Dawn is very similar, yet different from Diablo’s. It’s not an oxymoron, because it shares the same grimdark tone, while the world’s tech level and setting are largely different. The game’s class and skill combination system, along with constellations, makes for some of the most interesting build tinkering out there. All of this combines to provide one of the most unique and satisfying aRPG experiences you can have.

2. Diablo II: Resurrected

Going back to its predecessor, Diablo 4 draws more inspiration from Diablo 2 than from its sequel, Diablo 3. With the release of the Resurrected version, you can go back and experience the juggernaut that made the aRPG genre into what it is today. Practically every game on this list draws a good portion of its source to the original Diablo 2, so you owe it to yourself to at least give the remastered version a go. 

1. Path of Exile

Path of Exile is a game that needs no introduction to aRPG veterans. It’s still considered to be the best and most complete experience in this genre. With intricate mechanics that don’t hold a player’s hand, it’s a game that provides countless possibilities and builds among its six classes. With the skill gem system, leagues, end-game trees, and so much more, PoE can be the most daunting yet rewarding experience out there. And there’s even a Path of Exile 2 on the horizon, so there’s a lot to look forward to.
