There are some great RPGs on Xbox Game Pass.
Xbox Game Pass is a service you pay for that gives you access to a lot of great games from all kinds of genres. So, it makes sense that there are a good number of RPGs on the service. Game Pass lets you load both traditional RPGs and action RPGs, as well as a few JRPGs. So, every type of role-playing game fan can find something they like.
But not every RPG on Game Pass is as good as the rest. It makes sense that some games are just better than others in different ways. And some of them stand out more than the others. All of the games below are part of that special group.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Odyssey is one of the few Assassin’s Creed games that is an RPG. This means that there is a skill tree, special skills, and different gear for different levels. There are also a lot of decisions to make in the game, which change how everything goes.
The first choice you have to make is whether to play as Kassandra or Alexios right from the start. During the Peloponnesian War, a soldier is anyone you choose. But their biggest disagreement isn’t about the fights between Athens and Sparta. They are more worried about a group called the Cult of Kosmos, which broke up their family when they were kids. You fight back by using both close fighting and sneaking.
The world of Albion is where Fable 2 takes place. At the beginning of the game, you play as a young kid who lives on the street. Still, no matter how hard they try, they are bound to become a hero and stop a crazy ruler who is about to destroy everything.
Even though the story is serious, the game as a whole is funny. There is a lot of funny and silly stuff all over. A lot of this happens during the great side quests you can do. Besides them, there are many other things you can do while traveling the world, such as getting married and having kids.
Yakuza: Like A Dragon
Yakuza: Like A Dragon is very different from the other games in the Yakuza series. It’s a turn-based RPG, which is the biggest difference. But it’s not the most standard turn-based RPG because it has the crazy style that Yakuza is known for. This means that there will be a lot of silly skills and moves.
People from all walks of life are in the party you fight against. They help Ichiban Kasuga, the main character, fight back against his old boss. It’s a bright and exciting journey.
Fallout: New Vegas
The first game in the Fallout series was a straight RPG, but the more recent games, like Fallout: New Vegas, are action RPGs. This game has great first-person shooter gameplay and interesting exploration. In fact, these two things often go together, since you often get into fights as you wander the post-apocalyptic wastelands. People you fight can be anything from wild animals to members of large groups.
These groups are important to the main plot because your main character is caught in the middle of the fight between all the groups who want to rule the wasteland. And it all starts when a man who looks good and sounds like Matthew Perry shoots you and leaves you for dead.
Dragon Age Origins
Bioware is the company that makes a lot of great RPGs. Dragon Age Origins, which led to a great fantasy series, is one of their best games. In this one, you play as a character that you can change in terms of gender, class, and race.
The hero you make joins an old group of people called the Grey Wardens. Their goal is to stop a group of monsters called Dark Spawn from taking over the world by fighting them. You do this with the help of several smart people you meet on your trip.
Most role-playing games are about heroes trying to stop the end of the world. Stardew Valley, on the other hand, makes things easier. You play as a farmer who has taken over his grandfather’s run-down farm.
Your goal is to get it back to where it was. At least, that’s your general goal, since Eggy Car game lets you run your farm however you want. So, you don’t have to work on your farm every single day. You could look around the area, go fishing, talk to the people, or do a number of other things. It’s a nice way to spend time.
Persona 5 Royal
Persona 5 tells a standard vigilante tale. During the day, you’re a normal teenager who goes to school, talks to people, and does other things. This part of the trip is like a game where you try to live your life.
But after school, you and your team try to make bad people change their minds. You can do this by going into a secret place where you can see into their minds. There, you try to find out what they want and steal it, which makes them change their ways. It’s a lot to keep track of, but when you play, it all makes sense. And it’s fun to walk around these castles and fight against the creatures that live there in turn-based battles.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition
Mass Effect: Legendary Edition is not just one game; it is actually three games in one. This is because it has the first three Mass Effect games in it. In all three games, you play as Commander Shepard, a customizable character who is the best chance for the galaxy to stop the coming invasion of The Reapers, a powerful synthetic force that can wipe out the whole galaxy.
So the risks are high, but you still have a lot of chances to put your main goal on hold while you find and get to know a bunch of interesting companions. When they’re not in fight, they’re good friends, but when they are, they’re important team members. When it comes to fighting, it’s a third-person shooter where you use different guns and powers to beat all kinds of enemies. The story is interesting, and the fights are fun.
