Top 11 Games Like Kingdom Come: Deliverance to Play Right Now

Games Like Kingdom Come Deliverance

If you loved the open-world adventures in the Holy Roman Empire, you’ll absolutely love these eleven games, just like Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Each of these games has an open-world element, but that’s not all they share with Deliverance, so let’s get into what makes them so convincing as an alternative:

1. Red Dead Redemption 2

When it comes to open-world adventure games, you just know that RDR 2 is unbeatable. This was the game of the decade for a reason – it’s got an amazing story, the most immersive setting you can think of, and as a bonus to Kingdom Come fans, it’s also set in the (not-so-distant) past.

As an outlaw in the early 20th century, your goal in Red Dead Redemption 2 is to keep your gang safe while also trying to get back to your previous glories. The story lets you make lots of choices that affect the path you take and the ending you get, but generally, you’re kept within a linear progression. That’s not to say that it’s bad though – far from it – RDR 2 has one of the best stories of any RPG out there!

Along with the story, you got tons of really well-made side quests, a world that’s full of details with lots of things to do, kind of like GTA, and you can really get immersed in the characters all around you – in the camp and in the world. If you’re looking for an open-world RPG adventure, it really doesn’t get better than this.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Google Stadia, Microsoft Windows.

2. Medieval Dynasty

Sometimes, only a medieval setting can get you the familiar feeling you’re looking for from an alternative to Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and the Medieval Dynasty probably does that better than anyone. The gameplay here isn’t trying to do too much, but it’s somehow so much more fun than games that absolutely cram content down your throat.

As you can tell by the name, in the medieval ages, you’re playing the role of a young man who’s responsible for his village and also the entire family legacy. No pressure. The learning curve isn’t like most games, but it’s definitely manageable, and for me, it was actually one of the fun parts as I learned more and more about how to get good at this game.

Going from humble beginnings where you know and have nothing to having your village thriving as well as creating a legacy any medieval family would be proud of is the main appeal of this game. That’s satisfying and rewarding and all, but it’s the journey getting there that makes it particularly fun. With beautiful medieval scenery and a lively world to explore, there’s a lot to love about this game as a fan of Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Platforms: PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X and Series S, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Microsoft Windows.

3. Crusader Kings III

Crusader Kings III is a sort of civilization simulator where instead of humble beginnings, you actually start at the very top. This means you’re in charge of a lot of important things, and your decisions shape the way not just your village works but entire empires and the world at large.

As a fan of KCD, you’re no stranger to daunting responsibilities, so this game will come pretty naturally to you. What I think you’ll love most, though, is the fact that this game is set in the medieval ages, too, and it’s got massive scope with its gameplay. Making decisions from the petty parts of your cities to overarching strategic ones, there’s a lot that you not only get to do but kinda have to do.

Managing your kingdoms and making sure they’re all thriving is what this game is all about, but there’s a lot of nuance involved in doing just that. This also means that as a new player, you might need to give it a bit of time before you’re fully functioning at the level this game expects. Once you’re past that, you might even be scared by how easily you can put tons of hours into this game – it’s that good!

Platforms: PlayStation 5, macOS, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows, Linux.

4. Elden Ring

Elden Ring is another one of those games that doesn’t really need an introduction – game of the year and really deservingly so – this game is a pretty unique global hit and not one that we often see being appreciated by the masses. As a souls-borne game, it’s definitely not an easy one, but it’s not as hard as people often make it out to be:

Elden Ring is an RPG where you are a maiden-less tarnished, who has to work their way through the story and unravel the mythical world they’re in. Right off the bat, this game does not hold your hand. You’re taught basic combat mechanics with some light training creatures, and then you’re yeeted straight into the wild where, well, you meet your first surprise pretty soon. That’s part of the appeal of Elden Ring, too; since it’s so much more difficult than your typical RPG tends to be (and there’s no difficulty slider), it makes it so much more rewarding to learn too.

If you’re looking for a fantasy RPG set in the medieval ages and don’t mind the learning curve that comes with a souls-borne game, Elden Ring is an option that’s unlike anything out there. It strikes the perfect balance between combat, story, visuals, and being just accessible enough for everyone to love it – especially people who like games like Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

Platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows.

5. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

Some say that if you say the words “open-world RPG” three times in the mirror, a Witcher 3 fan shows up behind you, telling you why you need to play this game. It’s me, I’m that Witcher 3 fan. I’m not the only one, though; this game is loved pretty much universally, and for good reason. As a fan of Kingdom Come: Deliverance, you’ll particularly like what it has to offer:

Set in the medieval ages with a mythical and fantasy setting, you play as Geralt, a witcher whose life’s purpose is to protect humans from monsters. And get called names for doing it. Humanity, am I right? The game has a ton of RPG elements, and they’re executed in the perfect way. This game was way ahead of its time – you get to choose how every dialog goes, and that defines how your game progresses too. 

Managing relationships while questing, fighting monsters, and progressing through its story is what makes Witcher 3 so great. If you’re looking for an open-world RPG that’s set in the medieval ages, especially the time when swords, shields, and horses were the highlight of modern warfare, then you’ll be right at home in The Witcher 3. 

Platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows.

6. Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn really took the world by storm when it came out. It’s an open-world RPG, just like KCD, but it’s the setting and the gameplay that makes it so appealing to so many people. Add its breathtaking visuals to the mix, and you have a recipe for hours and hours of fun!

In Horizon Zero Dawn, you play as Aloy, a somewhat Viking-like girl whose destiny is to save the world from the robots that have taken over it. These aren’t the kind of robots you’d expect, though – they’re not like Skynet from the Terminator movies; they’re actually a combination of earthly monsters merged with robotic menaces. Think dinosaur but with robotic limbs made out of titanium. Oh, and you’re going to be fighting them with a spear, staff, bow, or anything else you can find – no guns!

This is what makes the gameplay in Horizon so great – the combat is varied and absolutely badass, there are lots and lots of different monsters to fight, and all of this happens alongside its meticulously crafted story. You get the story dialogs you expect, and you get to shape your narrative the way you want it. Coming from KCD, you’ll love how Horizon Zero Dawn takes you from a somewhat realistic medieval game to a fantasy setting unlike anything out there.

Platforms: PlayStation, Microsoft Windows.

7. For Honor

In some ways, For Honor is like the stepping stone on your way to playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance since the combat here is comparatively easier. Since you’ve probably already played KCD, though, you’re going to be a pro in this game from the get-go! A medieval stage, sword and melee combat, and stunning graphics are what make this game fun for fans of this genre.

In For Honor, you don’t just get to be a knight – you get to choose from a whole plethora of classes and elements, each with its own merits and shortfalls. Rather than being stronger or weaker, these classes are there more so they can suit your particular playing style, especially since you’ve already got experience with what you like in Deliverance.

For Honor combines realism, RPG elements, and good old sword fighting in a way that’s just an absolute treat to play. While the story is there, and it’s definitely good in its own right, I found that the combat is where this game shines the best, and if you loved clashing with enemies in Kingdom Come: Deliverance, then you’ll be right at home here, too.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows.

8. Cyberpunk 2077

Neon lights, guns, cars and bikes, and a whole lot of bloodshed, that’s what Cyberpunk is all about. Ignore the rocky start it had; this game has come a long way in the past three years and is now the masterpiece that it was always destined to be. But what’s the appeal for Kingdom Come: Deliverance fans?

In Cyberpunk 2077, you get one of the best RPG experiences out there. Apart from that, though, coming from KCD, you’ll kind of be in uncharted territory. Instead of the past, this game is set in the not-so-distant future. This means that sword fighting isn’t the focus – big guns and grenades are. That’s not to say that you can’t sword fight here, though, because that’s actually one of the playstyles this game lets you have. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, you can even make a melee build that has you use a dildo as your main weapon.

If you’re a sucker for RPGs and melee combat but don’t mind a different setting, Cyberpunk is one of the best options out there for you to try. It’s definitely a unique setting, certainly for fans of the medieval atmosphere that KCD had, but if you’re up for an adventure, this is probably exactly what you need.

Platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows.

9. Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood

If you absolutely must have Rome as the setting, then Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood is your best bet in terms of immersion and overall familiarity with Kingdom Come: Deliverance. And that’s not to say that you’re satisfied – this is definitely one of, if not the very best, Assassin’s Creed games out there.

Brotherhood follows the adventures of Ezio, and this game was truly ahead of its time. Set in medieval Rome, it combines RPG elements with stealth and combat to create an experience that really makes you feel like an assassin would’ve at the time. Minus the 500-feet drops into hay bales and coming out unscathed, but I’ll allow it. Brotherhood also has one of the best storylines in all of the Assassin’s Creed games, so you’re getting the whole package here.

As a fan of KCD, you’ll love Brotherhood for its take on the Roman empire but also for the melee combat, which, although different, strikes the same kind of cord that Deliverance does. It’s probably not as realistic, but man, is it just as fun. If you’re looking for a game that takes you in newer gameplay mechanics while still retaining the good stuff from Kingdom Come, you’ll love AC: Brotherhood.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360, macOS.

10. Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age shares a lot of things with Kingdom Come: Deliverance, though not evident on the surface. Things like RPG elements, the game’s overall narrative, its progression system, and of course, a dash of medieval spice on everything. Is it really the game for you, though? I think it is:

Make no mistake: Inquisition is a fantasy game through and through, but every fantasy game draws on medieval themes, and that means sword and melee combat, just like KCD. Plus, Dragon Age lets you hunt dragons. I mean, they’re in the name, so I should expect it, but when you actually come across the mythical beast, which is one of the rarest encounters in the game, it’s just hard not to be excited by the prospect. When you tell someone you slayed a dragon in the Inquisition, it means something.

If you’re looking for a fantasy alternative to Kingdom Come: Deliverance that also has a somewhat similar approach to gameplay and combat, you’ll definitely love Dragon Age: Inquisition. It’s got a bit of a learning curve, but you’re no stranger to that as a KCD fan.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Xbox Cloud Gaming, Microsoft Windows.

11. Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Another Assassin’s Creed game on the same list?! Yes, but hear me out: Calling Valhalla an Assassin’s Creed game might even be considered a stretch by some measures – the game follows a formula that’s vastly different from the older games, but it’s still an AC game at heart.

Valhalla draws on the positives of its predecessor – Odyssey – and builds on them to make it even better, and it definitely hits the mark. Compared to Brotherhood, though, this game is a lot more focused on brutal combat than stealth, although that’s still there as always, and the scope of the game is a lot broader. This is apparent when you look at the map, which might as well be a whole country for you to venture through as a Viking.

While Viking themes aren’t as close to Rome as, well, Rome, the medieval combat and weapons and everything is still there, which makes it feel as familiar as it really needs to be. Especially for fans of the combat in Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Valhalla most certainly delivers and is a highlight of the game alongside the story and all the different quests. It’s almost too big a game to cover in this short highlight, so I highly encourage you to try it out!

Platforms: PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Series S, Microsoft Windows.

That wraps up our list of games like Kingdom Come: Deliverance. With every kind of medieval game you can imagine and one futuristic entry too, you’ve got a lot to choose from. So, did you find your new favorite on this list, or are you eyeing one that I actually missed? Let me know in the comments, and I’ll see you there!
