13 Games To Play That Are Like Divinity: Original Sin 2

Games Like Divinity Original Sin 2

If you’ve played Divinity: Original Sin 2 as much as I have, at this point, you’re probably just playing the whole thing on muscle memory without a second thought in your head! Where does a gamer like us go when we want something new? I know Divinity is a game so good that it’s almost divine (okay, I’ll see myself out), but sometimes we just want something new, right? But not too new; it’s gotta have that same RPG formula that we’ve come to know and love.

So, chances are that, like me, you’ve also played it to the point of addiction and don’t know what to do with your life anymore. Well, if that sounds like you, I have good news for both of us! Here’s a list of 13 games that are just like Divinity: Original Sin 2.

1. Baldur’s Gate 3

Baldur's Gate 3

We’re going to kick it off with Baldur’s Gate because, you guessed it, it’s from the same studio that developed Divinity: Original Sin 2. Larian Studios shot it out of the park with this one, as these two games are like two siblings separated at birth, reunited years later by a twist of fate (and a shared development team). They may look a bit different on the surface, but underneath it all, they have a lot in common – like a love of turn-based combat and a shared appreciation for a well-crafted RPG storyline. And let’s not forget about the character creation systems – both games give players the ability to create some seriously badass heroes.

The game is still in early access, scheduled for release in August of 2023, but early access means you can go and play the 30-hour-long limited campaign right away! The gameplay is turn-based, and I personally really loved this because it brings the same strategic gameplay that we all loved in Divinity. Going deeper, you’re also going to find that there’s a deep customization system for your characters that’ll let you change everything, and I’m not just saying that.

If you wanna play the game today, you’ll have to join the PC master race, as early access is only available on Windows and Mac OS. Sure, you could wait to play it later on a console, but why settle for that when you could be experiencing the game in all its glory on a high-end gaming rig today?

2. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

If you liked Divinity, there’s no way you haven’t played Skyrim. I refuse to believe it. It is so good, and it’s one of the best alternatives there could ever be in this genre. In some ways, it’s like the cooler, older brother of the RPG world. They both have a similar focus on exploration, character customization, and immersive storytelling, but Skyrim takes things to the next level with its vast open world, dragons, and epic battles.

In terms of core gameplay, Skyrim is all about giving players the freedom to do whatever they want. Want to be a stealthy archer who can pick locks and steal from unsuspecting townsfolk? Right on, sir! Want to be a sword-wielding badass who takes on dragons with ease? You can do that too. In my experience, Skyrim shines best at empowering players to create their own unique adventure in the world of Tamriel, and that would be my number one reason to recommend it.

And if you’re wondering which platforms you can play Skyrim on, the answer is pretty much everything except your toaster (sorry, toast lovers). It’s available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, and even Alexa (yes, really, kind of). So, no matter where you like to do your gaming, you can experience the wonders of Skyrim today, right now, this very second (do it now).

3. Expeditions: Rome

Expeditions: Rome

Ah, Expeditions: Rome – or as I like to call it, the lovechild of Divinity and Gladiator. It’s obvious at first glance that they share a similar passion for immersive storytelling and tactical gameplay, but Expeditions: Rome takes a step in slightly to the side by throwing you into the heart of ancient Rome.

And you know what they say when in Rome, your strategy and decision-making should be on point (I swear I didn’t make that up). You’ll have to lead your troops into battle, manage your resources wisely, and make tough choices that will affect the outcome of your adventure. In my playthrough, I thought of it as a lot like chess but with more blood and even more sandals.

If that all floats your boat, you’re in luck! Expeditions: Rome is available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch, so you can play the game whether you’re a keyboard warrior or a controller conqueror. Just don’t forget to bring your shield and sword – it’s a tough world out there in the land of the Caesars!

4. Lost Ark

Lost Ark

Divinity and Lost Ark both share a love for epic adventures and immersive gameplay. Lost Ark is an amazing game, and where it really shines is in its unique twist on the traditional action RPG formula. With a top-down view that makes it feel like a classic arcade game, it still keeps all the depth and complexity of a modern RPG! If you’ve ever played Gauntlet, put that game on steroids and remove the weird gremlin voices. There, that’s Lost Ark, a perfect copy.

Comparing it to Divinity: Original Sin 2, you’re gonna see that they’re both all about exploration and combat. You’ll explore vast and beautifully rendered worlds filled with all sorts of creatures and challenges, and you’ll battle them with all the skill and strategy you can muster. When I played Divinity, I felt like I was sucked into a black hole of adventures, and I could feel the same pull on me when I launched Lost Ark (should I be concerned?).

If Lost Ark sounds like fun, I really hope you’re in luck because the game is available only on PC as of now. I know, I know, it sucks when you find a game you absolutely love, but it’s not available on your platform of choice. But you know what that means… Time to switch to the PC master race!

5. Dragon Age: Origins

Dragon Age: Origins

Sit down, everyone; it’s time for you to read my PhD thesis on why everyone should play Dragon Age! I’m kidding, I could never do a PhD, but I can tell you why this game is worth writing one on: Dragon Age: Origins is like a medieval Choose Your Own Adventure book; you’ll create your own character and lead a ragtag group of misfits on an epic journey through a world that’s as dangerous as it is beautiful. When my friends and I were playing, battling darkspawn together, and casting wicked magical spells, it was a feeling I literally could not describe!

Coming from Divinity, Dragon Age Origins has the same deep lore, fascinating characters, and moral choices that will shape your experience of the story in the most random and unexpected ways. The excitement was part of what I loved most about it, and let’s not forget the classic turn-based combat that requires strategy and also teamwork to succeed. If you ever lost track of time and forgot to eat when playing Divinity, I have good (bad?) news for you because this game is just as addictive.

Dragon Age Origins originally came out on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, but since then has been ported to Classic Mac OS as well as Xbox Cloud gaming, so you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to platform options. Well, I think we’ve told you enough; it’s time for you to start playing it!

6. Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age: Inquisition

Okay, now that I’ve turned you on to the Dragon Age series, I’m going to talk about my favorite edition while I have the chance. Dragon Age: Inquisition is like an epic fantasy adventure where you get to be the hero! You’ll explore a vast and dangerous world filled with dragons, demons, and other monstrous creatures that want to eat you for breakfast. But fear not, because you’ll have a team of badass warriors, mages, and rogues to help you out! A lot of people didn’t care for Inquisition over Origins, but personally, there are few games out there that were as fun for me as this was.

So, how is it similar to Divinity? For starters, they both have party-based systems where you get to customize your team of heroes with different abilities and gear! And, of course, turn-based combat is a mainstay of this genre, and you’ll be needing to use your wits and tactics to overcome your foes. Did I mention it has a complex and engaging story that will keep you hooked from start to finish, too? It’s a Divinity fan’s ideal alternate universe!

Like the previous Dragon Age game, you’re once again given a lot of options in terms of platforms, as you can play Inquisition on PC, Xbox, as well as PlayStation. Now that you’re all set for your mythical adventure, let’s embark!

7. XCOM 2

XCOM 2

Okay, enough about medieval times and dragons; it’s time to fast-forward to a dystopian future! With XCOM 2, you’ve got yourself a turn-based tactical game that puts you in command of a squad of soldiers fighting to save humanity from an alien invasion. You’ll need to manage your base, research new technologies, and make strategic decisions about how to allocate your resources. But most importantly, and this really is important, you’ll need to kick some alien-behind with your army in intense, epic battles!

When comparing XCOM 2 to Divinity: Original Sin 2, you’ll find that it takes a departure from the usual flavor of RPG we’ve been offering you thus far. Let’s think of them like two different flavors of ice cream but with a shared love for turn-based tactical combat!

XCOM 2 can be the Rocky Road of games, with a sci-fi twist and a focus on resource management and base building. Divinity, on the other hand, is like a delicious Fantasy Fudge Sundae, with an open-world environment that’s chock-full of magic and adventure! So, if you think XCOM 2 could be your next pick in the RPG genre, you can start playing today on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and even Mobile!

8. Pathfinder: Wrath Of The Righteous

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous

Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous is an epic role-playing game that takes place in a world of sword and sorcery. Everybody wants to be a hero, and this game gives you that chance! You must lead a group of companions into battle against demonic forces that threaten to destroy the world, which is not ideal, so you have to stop them! With a vast array of customization options for your character and party, as well as a deep and engaging story that adapts to your choices, Pathfinder is a must-play for fans of the genre.

Oh, and if you love games that let you customize your characters and party members to your heart’s content, both Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous and Divinity: Original Sin 2 have you covered! You can choose everything from your characters’ appearance and abilities to their equipment and even their moral compass.

Since you’re here, I’m assuming you like turn-based combat and formidable enemies, and Pathfinder will put your strategic thinking skills to the test, just like Divinity. But be warned, while both games offer deep and immersive stories that respond to your choices, you might find yourself spending more time in the fantasy world of Pathfinder than you do in the real world! The game is available today on PS4, Switch, Xbox, macOS, Windows, you name it, it’s probably on it, so don’t wait and get started right away!

9. Solasta: Crown Of The Magister

Solasta: Crown of the Magister

There’s something about high-fantasy worlds where monsters roam the land and magic is real that I just can’t put my finger on, but I love them! Solasta takes us to a world that features exactly this, with a party of adventurers that you’ll gather and embark on a perilous journey to save the world from evil forces. Its deep and engaging story, challenging turn-based combat, and a high degree of character customization are what made me come back for more again and again and again!

As you’ve probably guessed from that last sentence, this game shares a bunch of core similarities with Divinity, and I can assure you that it’s all of the best ones. Like Divinity, the story will adapt to your choices and actions, all while putting you through the classic turn-based battle experience that we’ve come to enjoy and love. Okay, so they’re very similar; what is it that Solasta does unique, then? It’s the fantasy world that the game is set in! Featuring wizards, dragons, and overall magical styling, it differs from the steampunk feel of Divinity.

To play Solasta: Crown of the Magister, you can download it right away on almost any platform you love, as it’s available on Xbox, Mac OS, and Windows (sorry, PlayStation fans).

10. Wartales

Wartales

In Wartales, you’ll once again be familiarizing yourself with the role of a hero as you lead a group of mercenaries through a gritty and unforgiving world. Danger lurks around every corner here, and death is always just one bad decision away, but don’t worry because you’ll have plenty of opportunities to hone your skills! That’s not all; you’re also going to be recruiting new party members and upgrading your equipment. And did I mention there are dragons? Yes, as I found out the hard way, they put dragons in here too, and you’re going to be slaying them, of course!

Now, coming from Divinity, I’d say that Wartales is kind of like Divinity’s wild and crazy cousin. They share some similarities, like turn-based combat and the emphasis on character customization, but Wartales has its own unique flavor. It’s like if Divinity went to a biker rally and came back with a leather jacket and a tattoo. Sure, they’re still family, but they’ve definitely got their own thing going on.

So, if you’re a fan of Divinity and you’re looking for something a little different, give Wartales a try! As a long-time fan, I had a lot of fun with this game. To play Wartales, you can download it on your nearest Windows PC, which is currently the only place it’s available. That kinda sucks, but if you were looking to switch to PC anyway, let this be a nudge in the right direction!

11. Wasteland 3

Wasteland 3

Welcome to Wasteland 3, an RPG game set in the frozen lands of post-apocalyptic Colorado that is bound to have you on the edge of your seat with its challenging missions and entertaining storyline! You start off as the commander of a squad which is on a quest to rebuild society in these wastelands, traveling through icy peaks, blistering deserts, and corrupt towns. The devs knew very well that they can’t make a game in this genre without extensive customization. Thus! Customization was born! Wasteland allows you to create your squad and customize it according to your gaming style and grind to upgrade to better weapons that can bring your enemies down.

If you’re wondering about how this game with a player base of over 2 million gamers, compares to Divinity: Original Sin 2, the secret lies in the multiplayer experience. Both games involve building your own squad for a common purpose, and both squads have to engage in several role-plays and battles to achieve their objectives. But compared with one of the best co-op games ever, some people find fault with the design flaws and the rather linear storyline of Wasteland 3, which doesn’t add up to the creativity of Divinity: Original Sin 2.

That aside, if you’re looking for a fun multiplayer RPG to try after Divinity, Wasteland 3 is perfect! And it’s also available on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Linux, and macOS. So, make sure you check it out and rebuild your society in a post-apocalyptic world today!

12. Fallout Classic Collection

Fallout Classic Collection

As post-apocalyptic games are coming back in style, the Fallout Classic Collection is one you cannot miss. Dating back to the late 1990s, this collection hosts three titles that were all great hits with gamers: Fallout 1, Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, and Fallout 2. The first game starts with the player on a high-risk mission to locate a new water purification chip in a world torn apart with chaos and nuclear wars.

As you complete missions, upgrade your equipment, and uplevel your skills, you’ll enjoy an experience unlike any other with the classic Fallout series (trust me on this). The second game focuses more on gamers who have a penchant for tactical plays. As you complete missions from the Brotherhood of Steel org with your friends, you can win over your enemies in the wasteland. The amount of fun me and my friends had with this cannot be understated! And lastly, the final version of this collection is set eight decades after the previous one, where you, as the oh-so-special Chosen One, embark on a life-altering journey to find the mythical G.E.C.K.

Does all of this feel a bit familiar? That’s because Fallout Classic Collection is indeed quite a lot like Divinity: Original Sin 2! With the focus on building up your skills and the personality and strengths of your characters as your progress through the story, some gamers even refer to Divinity as a more modern take on the Fallout series. So, if you enjoy one, you’re bound to like the other! You can check the collection out right now on your nearest PC, preferably on Steam.

13. Disco Elysium – The Final Cut

Disco Elysium - The Final Cut

If you’re already a fan of this franchise, you’re gonna want to sit down because your socks are about to be blown off with The Final Cut! After all, what could be better than a thrilling story about an amnesiac detective lost in an unknown world as he tries to regain his memories?

There’s no traditional combat in this game (*gasp*) but hold up! You’ll want to stay for the unique set of abilities in this game. Your character has four main types of abilities: intellect, psyche, physique, and motorics. These abilities were hands down the most satisfying and unique parts of this game for me, there are so many combos and variations you can try!

The similarity between Disco Elysium: The Final Cut and Divinity: Original Sin 2 is that they’re both RPGs with compelling storylines and interesting characters. Aaand that’s it! That’s mostly where the big similarities stop because while Disco Elysium has long texts and dialogues, Divinity leans more towards combat and challenging missions.

So, if you’re looking for something a little bit sideways from Divinity while not giving up the original formula entirely, Disco Elysium will treat you to an experience of a lifetime! The game is available on a bunch of platforms, too, including Windows, macOS, PlayStation 4 & 5, Stadia, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.

Wow, that was a long read, huh. That wraps up our list of Divinity-like games which we found to be the most fun. Did we cover just about everything? If we missed your favorite title, feel free to let us know. Until next time, we hope this has been helpful for you and wish you good luck in your games!
