Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Launch Date:  5th June 2018

Made by Neocore Games

Description: Even though Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor Martyr was a disappointment for some people, we still believe it deserves a spot on the list. The game lets you rock the Warhammer 40k universe as a deadly assassin, powerful psychic or an armored behemoth.

The story lets you play  as an Inquisitor who’s main job is to hunt and eliminate any enemy who oppose the God-Emperor’s rule. The acting is so well done that its a shame this game didn’t had a more interesting gameplay.  The RPG is a bit repetitive and there aren’t many tactics you can use against the enemies. But despite of that, its a beautiful RPG and the fans of Warhammer 40,000 will surely enjoy it.   As old fans of Warhammer 40,000 – we believe it deserves a spot on the best RPGs of 2018.

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows

Launch Date: 5th June 2018

Made byDontnod Entertainment

Description: Vampyr is one of the most different RPGs of this year. The action take place in the London during the World War I and the Spanish Flu epidemic. The main character is a physician that recently turned into a vampire, Dr. Jonathan Reid.  The dialog, action and gameplay will make you feel the character and understand its pain.
The game have a lot of potential and a really engaging story. The gameplay is fun, enjoyable but a bit dark for some players. The best thing about it is that it reflects the period fairly accurate – as the game is full of sexism, classism, racist and xenophobia. Nevertheless, its entertaining and addicting and it surely deserves a spot on the best RPGs of 2018.

Platforms PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows

Launch Date: 5th October 2018

Made byUbisoft QuebecUbisoft MontréalUbisoft Singapore

Description: Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is one of the most controverted games of the year.  The story takes place 2,400 years ago and shows the battle of dominance over the ancient Greece.  The game have a beautiful open-world where you can sail, fly and fight with your enemies. The gameplay is engaging and the story will definitely make you feel like you’re a part of it.

The main issue of this game is the fact that the side missions needs to be completed before finishing the main story, as the main story requires you to have a certain level to move on.  Here Ubisoft wants to make you pay money in order to level up easier and move on with the story – so micro-transactions.  But if you put that aside, the game of one of the best open-world RPGs that you ever played.  The reason why this game is #4 on the best RPGs of 2018 list is the fact that micro-transactions are available and there are a few bugs in the combat system.

Description: Monster Hunter World delivers what they say in the title. The action-RPG let you start with barely a weapon and a chainmail on yourself and as you go deeper, you can craft different weapons and armors from the monster that you encounter on your journey.

Another thing that makes Monster Hunter World awesome is the fact that if you hunt a specific monster, the game will lead you into finding more and more details about it: Its powers, its weakness and what parts of a monster can be broken off for additional rewards.

Imagini pentru kingdom come

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

Launch Date: 13th February 2018

Made byWarhorse Studios

Description: Kingdom Come : Deliverance is delivering the best RPG of 2018. The story is complex, clever and it all depends on your decisions. The combat system  is one of the best ever made, with a realism that its hardly noticed at many medieval games.  Without the proper tactics, it may take you minutes as well as hours to beat two others guys in the same armor as you. Its not easy – its challenging. and you need to be precise.

The details of the medieval world are wonderfully crafted and the quests bring something fresh to a year full of games with a repetitive quest structure. Today you may be involved in a story of two brothers fighting for a thrones and another day you’re reciting a sermon inspired by Jan Hus – a predecesor off Martin Luther.  This is not your typical RPG, this is an astonishing RRPG – Realistic Role Playing Game.  Your decision influence and create the personality of Henry as he travels himself trough Bohemia.

The game may be the most realistic RPG build until the time of writing the article. The details are beautiful and the journey trough Bohemian countryside it feels like a part of a story. A story that you build, with your decisions.
