With God of War: Ragnarok recently releasing on PlayStation 4 and 5, many players on other gaming platforms are left with a growling stomach for something similar to play. Luckily, there are a lot of games out there that can fill that void, and in some ways, can do certain aspects just as good, if not better than this titan of a game. So, here’s our list of the 8 best games to play like God of War.
Starting out our list is the indie classic, Hellblade: Shenua’s Sacrifice. Similar to the newer God of War titles, this game will have you facing foes in claustrophobic third-person combat as well as having a mythologic-like Viking backdrop and even tosses in some environmental puzzles.
Following in the footsteps of Hellblade, AC: Valhalla’s Norse mythological backdrop is impressive, as well as its gigantic locations and refined combat. For a more action-heavy option, this is the best choice. Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey is another great choice if Greek mythology is more up your alley.
Throwing it back a bit, Dante’s Inferno is a real hidden gem amongst those who enjoyed the older, more hack-and-slashy God of War titles. This is the closest you can get to that kind of experience, but the game is great in its own right too with a gripping story.
Another great OG God of War-styled series of games, any Darksiders title is guaranteed to give you a great, original experience with a more cartoonish view of it all. This is a comic-book version of the hack-and-slash genre for sure.
You knew this game had to make the list. With its own mythos, a grand world to explore, and some of the most epic boss battles around, Elden Ring truly gives God of War: Ragnarok a run for its money. If you want to sink hours into a title similar to Ragnarok, this is it, and then some.
If you want a strong story-driven title with amazing gameplay and magnetic characters, then Guardians of the Galaxy is actually a great choice if you can’t get your hands on God of War. The narrative in this game is dazzling and the set pieces are colorful explosions.
A personal favorite of mine, Fallen Order seems to be the perfect marriage of Elden Ring and Guardians of the Galaxy, having a very strong narrative as well as delivering players some truly challenging battles. If you’re a fan of the Star Wars franchise and God of War, you’ll feel right at home with this one.
Those are our picks for the 8 best games to play like God of War. If you don’t have a way to play this PlayStation-exclusive IP or have already beaten them, this list will most definitely have at least one game that’ll be a perfect fit.
