14 Games Like Elden Ring
To Play
Ninja Gaiden 3
“Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge” follows the adventures of master ninja Ryu Hayabusa as he embarks on a globe-trotting mission after a terrorist organization unleashes mythical monsters all over the planet. Like “Elden Ring,” “Ninja Gaiden” rewards precise timing with attacks and defensive maneuvers to build combos as Ryu cuts through hordes of enemies.
FromSoftware’s “Bloodborne” laid much of the gameplay foundation for “Elden Ring” while creating an immersive world and aesthetic that stands as one of the most beautifully realized by the developer. Perhaps the most accessible FromSoftware title in terms of difficulty level, “Bloodborne” is a masterpiece of the hack-and-slash soulslike genre.
The Witcher 3
“The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt” has Geralt of Rivia take on a large bestiary around the dark fantasy world while searching for his adopted daughter Ciri. “Wild Hunt” puts a focus on exploration and combat, and like “Elden Ring,” has players rely heavily on magic in the midst of combat while staying on guard against formidable foes that can kill them immediately on higher difficulties.
Dark Souls 3
“Dark Souls 3,” the 2016 final installment of the “Dark Souls” trilogy, serves as the culmination of the series, with fine-tuned combat mechanics and a stronger focus on exploration than its predecessors. “Dark Souls 3” prominently incorporates magical abilities into its gameplay, a nod to “Demon's Souls,” and a feature that would resurface in “Elden Ring.”
Breath of the Wild
Presenting a greater emphasis on exploration and more challenging combat, “The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild” revolutionizes what a “Legend of Zelda” game can be. With the high level of technical detail and precision in its combat system and high fantasy setting, “Breath of the Wild” is the perfect family-friendly alternative to “Elden Ring.”
