Best RPGs to play after Baldur’s Gate 3

Though nothing quite reaches the excellence of Baldur’s Gate 3, there are a lot of great RPGs out there that have stood the test of time. If you’re just now getting into CRPGs with Baldur’s Gate 3, you and/or your group of friends will love these games.

Divinity: Original Sin 2

Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the game Larian Studios made right before Baldur’s Gate 3. It came out in 2017 and is one of my personal favorite RPGs ever made. It’s what made me fall in love with Larian Studios and is how I knew I’d love Baldur’s Gate 3.

Out of every game on this list, Divinity: Original Sin 2 plays the most similar to Baldur’s Gate 3. It doesn’t use a Dungeons & Dragons system but uses its own RPG system instead. It’s a ton of fun, has a great story, features detailed character building as seen in Baldur’s Gate 3, and has some of the craziest “wait, I can do that?” moments in any game.

Pillars of Eternity 2

Pillars of Eternity 2 is known for being one of the best RPGs of all time. I’ve yet to play it but it’s on my list to play after Baldur’s Gate 3, so it fits here. A bonus to Pillars of Eternity 2 is that if you like it, you can play the first game right after it which is also said to be really good.

If you’re looking for a swashbuckling adventure that gives you full control of how you play out combat and quests, Pillars of Eternity 2 is what you need to play next. Expect an amazing story, rich classes, and lots of chaotic battles. The combat is action-based instead of turn-based, but they added a turn-based mode so it feels even more like Baldur’s Gate 3.

Pathfinder is a tabletop game like Dungeons & Dragons, and there is a Pathfinder video game that a lot of people like. It’s action-based, but you can pause it to have it feel like a turn-based game. There are many expansions to enjoy which is a good thing if you end up liking the game.

Dragon Age: Origins

There are a lot of Dragon Age games, but Origins is the most beloved. Dragon Age: Origins is a true RPG made by BioWare, the same team that made Mass Effect.

You make your class and play through a fantasy world in action-based combat. There are a lot of Dragon Age games and all of them are fun, but Dragon Age: Origins is known as the best.

Wasteland 3

If you want a break from all the magic and dragons, Wasteland 3 is a great RPG that’s set in a post-apocalyptic world. It’s turn-based and there are several ways to build your character and party. The choices matter and the story is excellent — you know, standard amazing RPG stuff.

Solasta uses Dungeons & Dragons 5.1 which is really similar to Baldur’s Gate 3. You create your character, pick your class, and experience a story. It’s almost exactly like Baldur’s Gate 3, but it’s rough around the edges in more ways than one.

Tyranny is interesting because instead of playing the good guys, you play the bad guys. Every decision feels real — who is gonna get screwed over most not which choice has the best outcome.

Tyranny is made by Obsidian Entertainment so it plays a lot like their other games, Pillars of Eternity 1 and 2. In my research, I’ve heard Tyranny has a lot more reading and is more slow-paced, so proceed with caution.

Path of Exile

Path of Exile is an excellent RPG that plays like a mixture of Baldur’s Gate 3 and Diablo. It’s a live-service game so it has a lot of content to enjoy and there are many, many classes you can create.

If you’re looking for something more action-based compared to Baldur’s Gate 3, then Path of Exile is a great choice as it gives you a lot of build creativity and keeps you in the fantasy realm.

Wartales is an RPG that came out in 2023 that features a big open world set in medieval times instead of a fantasy realm. The goal is to survive as long as you can instead of playing out a specific story. There also aren’t defined classes and character creators. Instead, you control a small militia that tries to get bigger and bigger.

Wartales is a big “do whatever you want” world that features turn-based tactics that are familiar if you’ve played Baldur’s Gate 3.

I love Gloomhaven so I had to put it on this list. Gloomhaven is a tabletop game that has been made into a video game, and the video game is a lot of fun. You pick one of six starting characters, each with different playstyles, and fight your way through different scenarios using cards unique to your character.

It’s a turn-based card game where you unlock new classes as you continue forward, become a master with your character, and experience exciting storylines.
