Best PS5 RPG

What are the best RPG PS5 ? The last Sony console is still young, but it has already raised a strong role-playing library. This extensive kind is home to many different styles; RPGs can be open or very linear world. They can have action or fights in turn. They can offer total freedom to the player, or they can be strictly focused on history. There is a lot to consider when it comes to determining the best RPGs on PS5, but in this guide, hopefully, useful, we will share our reflections on the most powerful games of the system.

Best RPG PS5

Below you will find a list of what we think is the best RPGs on PS5. Once again, however, the new Sony console is in its infancy, so this current list is in no way final. We will update it as a result as new RPGs will be published on PS5, so be sure to come back.

It should also be emphasized that all games on our best RPG PS4 list are playable on PS5 with backward compatibility. If you really want to expand your RPG horizons, give it a look.

Demon souls (PS5)

Average length: 30 hours

Combat system: Action

Demon’s Souls has experienced his long Renaissance as a PS5 launch game, and it’s always a very special RPG. Repeated from zero by BluePoint Games, Demon’s Souls retains the atmosphere of another world and the punitive gameplay of the original version, but refreshes the adventure with visuals of new generation outright breathtaking. It’s really a show to see, and if you missed Demon’s Souls the first time, know that his excellent design has resisted the test of time. A masterpiece is reborn.

Immortals Fenyx Rising (PS5)

Average length: 40 hours

Combat system: Action

Immortals Fenyx Rising is basically the Ubisoft version of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, sprinkled with Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to do good. It is an adventure based on Greek mythology, which takes place in an open world filled with fights, puzzles and secrets. Like most Ubisoft’s open world offers, the gameplay structure is very stereotyped, but there is a caricature charm for characters and narration. A fun excursion for players of all ages.

Judgment (PS5)

Average length: 45 hours

Combat system: Action

Judgment is Yakuza’s self-contained spin-off featuring Takayuki Yagami – a private detective that tangles in a brutal murder mystery. In Yakuza’s typical style, the narration is fantastic and a brilliant distribution of characters is doing things. On PS5, Judgment is the most beautiful Yakuza game and probably the most powerful. It has a refined combination system and many optional activities to take care when you do not continue the main case. If you are interested in Yakuza games, Judgment is an almost perfect place to start.

Mortal Shell: Improved Edition (PS5)

Average length: 12 hours

Combat system: Action

Mortal Shell is clearly inspired by Souls games, but his gadget is that you can live in different bodies, or “shells”. This intriguing mechanism gives Mortal Shell at the same time an identity and an advantage, while making the adventure a little more accessible than the punitive offers of his peers. With a rich atmosphere and reactive (but still deliberate) fighting, Mortal Shell is an alternative to Souls on PS5.

Atelier Ryza 2: Lost legends and secret fairy (PS5)

Average length: 45 hours

Combat system: Real-time controller

Atelier Ryza 2 marks the first incursion of the expansive series on PS5, and it’s another healthy component. The workshop games are certainly not for everyone, but if you are looking for a relaxed and comfortable RPG, then this new title is worth the detour. A generally fun characters distribution maintains captivating history and there is a range of colorful environments to explore.

Outriders (PS5)

Average length: 30 hours

Combat system: Third-person shooting game with abilities / skills

Outriders is a shooter, but it goes a little further in the kind of role play with a character-oriented story. However, the chaotic fight is really at the center of the experience, where crispy weapons combine with class-based destruction skills. Outriders is very fun at its best, and even when it is not the case, you can always amplify action with one or two other players in cooperation.

Lost Judgment (PS5)

Average length: 40 hours

Combat system: Action

Lost Judgment is not as coherent as its predecessor, but it is always an excellent policeman thriller, and it is reinforced by a ridiculous amount of addictive secondary content. Even according to Yakuza standards, this game is full of mini-games and optional activities. Boxing, skateboard, motorcycle races… The list is long. And in addition to all this, you always have a casting of great characters and an intrigue that twists and constantly turns. Another success for RGG Studio.

The NIOH collection (PS5)

Average length: 100 hours

Combat system: Action

Ranking Shells from Worst to Best - MORTAL SHELL

The NIOH collection brings together NIOH and NIOH 2 in a single remastered package on PS5. The Games present an alternative vision of Japanese history, where demons are unleashed at the feudal era of the country. In terms of structure, NIOH is very similar to a Souls series, but it focuses on fast and frantic fights, with a much heavier accent on the booty. They can be brutal games, but so rewarding when you overcome their many trials.
