Hack And Slash RPG Games for PC

Art for Hack And Slash RPG Games Category

When you hear the name of the "hack-and-slash" genre, the first thing that comes to mind is the Diablo series. These games deserve to be the best representatives of the kind because they provide the essential experience of eliminating enemy hordes while crawling the dungeons. Hack-and-Slash RPG Games can be a fresh alternative to the ordinary third-person projects, because their lore is often more in-depth, as it compensates for the average-looking graphic design.

More about Hack-and-Slash RPG Games

One of the distinctive features of this genre is an isometric view at the battlefield, which allows players to control the combat action and think out the best tactics. Many hack-and-slash games have a multitude of levels that can quickly immerse players for many hours. It's achieved by detailed environments and monster designs that don't suffer from graphics limitations; another feature is the loot list that may seem to be almost never-ending.

The essential part of H'n'S RPGs is also the sense of vulnerability that follow players until the end of the game. No matter how heavily-armoured the character may seem, a small group of not-so-tough enemies can kill the hero if you relax even for one second. Anxious anticipation does not happen for anything, after all. The harder the challenge, the more significant rewards you will get at the end of the scariest dungeons.

There are many authentic Hack-and-Slash RPG Games games that have been developed since the release of the first Diablo in 1997, like Titan Quest, Dungeon Siege and Torchlight, which were made by several original Diablo creators. Newer projects present less restrictive skill systems, better interfaces and feature more advanced and detailed visuals. The genre is well-known for the satisfaction that comes with the elimination of hordes of monsters, as they fall apart and gush blood with every kill.

Best Hack-and-Slash Games

  • Diablo 2 was released in the year 2000, but it stays relevant to this day, as it is considered to be one of the best games of the genre for all time. This dungeon crawler presents a story about seven "Great Evils" that terrorize the mortal world, and the player character gradually travels the world, defeating monsters and entities on the way to the greatest of evils. Diablo 2 is more in-depth than many other projects of the genre, even though its retro appeal lacks a lot of attractive features that can be experienced in recent projects.
  • Torchlight is one of the examples of quality hack-and-slash experience, although the plot might seem quite simple. The player controls a hero character who explores various randomized dungeons while fighting large numbers of monsters. The gameplay is overall similar to all of the other representatives, but Torchlight has a unique setting that's great for exploration.
  • Path of Exile is an action-RPG inspired by mechanics and setting of Diablo 2. It has a customizable class system, challenging multiplayer competitions and highly immersive grindy gameplay.
