Linear RPG Games for PC

Art for Linear RPG Games Category

Linear RPG Games require players to complete the main storylines and explore the locations in a specific order. Most of them are locked until the particular point in the main plot is passed. There are various side activities, but the game usually does not allow you to explore and skip some of the stages freely. Also, multiple customization functions and gear pieces are unavailable to the players until they complete a specific objective. That way, the developers create genuinely immersive stories that keep the players immersed continuously. Playing linear games, you don't have to spend time trying to figure out all endings of the plot, explore the huge open worlds and grind other things — you can just enjoy the immersive and straightforward gameplay path prescribed by the developers.

More about Linear RPG Games

Linear RPG Games offer the players a large number of different objectives and mission that they have to complete in a specific order. You cannot skip most of the quests, and some locations may be locked at the beginning of the games. However, that allows the developers to create immersive storylines that take players through most areas providing a dynamic and memorable experience. The developers may create various locations with diverse difficulty levels and detailed in-game mechanics. The progress of the players is linear, balanced and always provides the most suitable rewards for completing challenges and quests.

Linear RPG Games allow you to gain experience points and in-game currency to upgrade various gear pieces and learn new abilities using vendors or complex skill trees. That way, you can face more challenging opponents and progress through the storyline quicker to obtain better rewards and unlock other locations.

Linear RPG Games fit both casual and hardcore players because of the adjustable difficulty and linear storyline structure. The games start with a tutorial and relatively simple battles and then allow you to explore more challenging areas after you learn the basics and obtain fitting equipment for them.

Best Linear RPG Games

  • Dark Souls III is an Action/RPG computer game developed by FromSoftware. The game is set in Lothric, at the junction of the domains of the Lords of Ashes.

Dark Souls 3 has linear RPG mechanics and incredibly immersive combat system.
  • Assassin's Creed II is a multiplatform action-adventure computer game. The player will travel to Renaissance Italy (from 1476 to 1499), meet famous historical figures, and immerse into a deep stealth combat system. Among the fan community, this RPG is often called the best game in the Assassins Creed series. A free movement system with the ability to climb almost any object is available to the player.
  • Diablo III is an Action/RPG developed and released by Blizzard. The action of this linear RPG takes place in the world of Sanctuary, made in the spirit of dark fantasy; the player, controlling a character of one of several classes to choose from, must destroy demons and monsters threatening Sanctuary and eventually fight against Diablo, the Lord of Terror. The developers have created many more quests for each of Diablo 3's cities than all of the cities in the second instalment combined. The mis, as well as the terrain, are randomly generated.
