‘The Witcher’ is one of the best action adventure series out there and just the other day, we were having a discussion among ourselves about games that are similar to the latest entry in the series, ‘The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt’. Needless to say, each one of us had a game in mind that resembled ‘The Witcher’ series in one way or the other and we decided to compile the best of them into one single list so that you can refer to them any time you like. So, here is the list of video games similar to ‘Witcher 3’ that are our recommendations. You can play these games like ‘Witcher 3’ on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, iPhone, Android, mac or even online.
10. Assassin’s Creed: Origins (2017)
‘Assassin’s Creed: Origins’ marks the comeback for the ‘Assassin’s Creed’ series and by the looks of it, Ubisoft has struck gold here. The game is a direct sequel to ‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ and similar to the other games in the series, takes the player through a definitive historical experience. This time, the game takes us back to Ancient Egypt back to the time when the civilization was at its peak and tells the story of the origin of the assassins. The game has been praised by critics for its polished gameplay mechanics and intricate storyline and it is sure to get you hooked once you start playing. You are given a trusty owl by your side who will aid you for the most part of the gameplay and you are also given the power to scout the entire area through an ability called the ‘Eagle Vision’. The break has done Ubisoft a lot of good and we highly recommend this game to fans of open world adventures like ‘The Witcher 3’.
9. Cyberpunk 2077 (TBA)
We have a lot of expectation from this game and if all goes according to plan, it has the potential to change the face of the gaming industry. The trailers and the video gameplay footage that has been released by the company looks extremely promising, with breathtaking visuals and wide RPG mechanics that looks very polished. However, since we have not yet had a chance to try the game for ourselves, we are forced to place the game at the number 10 spot. The game is set in a far steampunk-ish future where humans are living freely with mechs and augments and you are free to create your own character and customize them according to their wishes. The developers for the game CD Projekt Red have said that the decisions that you take within the game will affect the overall gameplay in an extensive manner and this is what we are excited for. The game is scheduled for release sometime this year and we promise to make a big deal out of it once it does.
8. Dark Souls III (2016)
‘Dark Souls’ is an unforgiving action role playing video game developed by FromSoftware and published by BandaiNamco and is widely regarded as one of the toughest video games of all time. The boss battles in this game are deadly with the game not letting go of one opportunity of knocking you down. You have the option to build your character according to your wishes allocating points to the attributes you want your hero to portray. The game is played from a third person perspective with the game giving you a variety of weapons to choose from. Your shield can also be used as a secondary weapon but it is mainly used to block your opponent’s strikes. Each weapon has two attacks, one that is instant and another that is strong but is charged. If you are looking for a game that challenges you at every step like the ‘Witcher 3’, then this is the one you are looking for.
