5 Best Games Like God Of War Ragnarok

There can be only one! – Or, can there be more?

Although God of War Ragnarok didn’t win a Game of the Year title, it is many gamers’ real winner and GOTY. It is a very fun action-based RPG that has our favorite hack-and-slash character Kratos, alongside the much more interesting Atreus, going on an adventure that unfolds many mysteries and lore of the God of War background. It is a game that we truly love and you can check out our review to see our rating for it.

Because it is a truly amazing gaming experience many players have been looking for games just of the same sort. In this article, we shall discuss the 5 Best Games that are just like or similar to God of War Ragnarok. Let’s get started.

5 Best Games Like God Of War Ragnarok

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice

You will be playing as Senua who is a Celtic warrior that journeys through the depths of Helheim, The Norse mythology land of the dead – something that is often spoken and seen in the God of War franchise too.

This is pretty much an exploration variation of the God of War Rangokar game, still, Senua’s Sacrifice is a deeper journey of sights and sounds. It still is a sandbox experience that will allow you to play and adapt to various types of different gameplay something that God of War Rangokar allows too.

You’ll be getting the very similar vibe and presence of the characters seen in God of War and although you won’t feel the progression of your weapons and armor just like with Kratos, the story is just fantastic and very intense that will make you forget about that whole part of the game very quickly too.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla

Although this might not be what you’re thinking of when you play God of War Ragnarok, it is still a game that has a lot of Norse mythology and many of the same characters can be seen here too.

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla is an action RPG that will have you traveling through the middle ages and being a Viking plundering and exploring the British Isles and Scandinavia. There are DLCs here as well that will have you going through the Ragnorok events and many of the same mythology monsters are present here too.

It is a very fun game that doesn’t even come close to the depth and story that God of War Ragnarok has, but it is still a game that will feel very close to it.

Elden Ring

The winner and the game of the year 2022 is also an action RPG that was in direct battle and competition with God of War Ragnarok itself. Just like God of War, in Elden Ring, you are able to see the looming threat of mythology and a large part of it is Norse too.

Just like in God of War Ragnarok, every step through this world is very rich in lore. You won’t be getting that feel and emotional connection with the characters, but on the other hand, every progression and unlocking of a newer and harder level is so rewarding that will give you the same feeling as finding out something new in the story of God of War Ragnarok.

The combat experience in Elden Ring is significantly more intense, there is still a shared DNA with God of War Ragnarok. You will have plenty of choices of how you choose to battle and the upgrade system is somewhat better than the one in God of War.

Horizon Forbidden West

Even though Horizon Zero Dawn’s frozen landscape might fit the ambiance and mood of Ragnarok nicer, the new version is superior in a lot of certain other ways than the first game. The most important changes are the new art direction and surroundings, which are as beautiful and vibrant as Niflheim and Svartalfheim.

In this game, you continue Aloy’s story in an action RPG style with a lot of story missions, side quests, and crafting. It puts her on a path to the ruined West coast of the US, where she must travel through beautiful open-world cities like Las Vegas and San Francisco and fight off animalistic pieces of machinery and warring tribes.

It gives off a very strong God of War Ragnarok vibe when playing it since it is very actionpacked but with those moments of discovery both of the beautiful world, but also new things in the lore and story.

The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is indeed an incredible roleplaying game with a lot of political drama, scary monsters, and brutal fights. It follows the main character, a witcher named Geralt, as he searches for the mystical Ciri known as the Child of Prophecy and rapidly becomes involved in a quest to save the world.

When you’re not killing opponents or discovering the beautiful world, you’ll choose to make big choices that will change how the story goes. Like God of War: Ragnarok, The Witcher 3 is a mature game that doesn’t hold back.

You don’t have to play the first two games before this one, but if you have, you’ll understand all the changes and twists better. It is indeed a very strong RPG this one that might feel different than God of War Ragnarok, but still, the story element and the character progression, as well the emotional attachment to them, will feel very close at home to God of War.

Honorable Mention

If you have played God of War Ragnarok but you haven’t played the previous games, especially God of War 1, 2, or 3, we highly recommend that you give them a try. They have a special little something that God of War Ragnarok doesn’t which we hope the devs will bring in the future.
