5 Action RPGs to Fill The Diablo-Sized Hole In Your PC Gaming Heart

Blizzard just announced the next Diablo game… and it’s a mobile game. If you’re one of the thousands of fans crushed by the news that there is no forthcoming Diablo IV, we’ve got five awesome alternatives for you to explore.

If you’re a Diablo super fan and you haven’t heard the news yet, you might want to sit down. The new game, announced today at Blizzcon, is called Diablo Immortal and it’s a mobile game. As longtime fans of the Diablo franchise (many of us on staff have played it since the original game in the 1990s) the nicest thing we can say about this announcement is that mobile graphics, in general, have come a long way and the game does look sharp.

But the game looks like a complete departure from the soul of the Diablo series and the PC platform that put it on the map—fans wanted Diablo IV or a beautiful remaster of Diablo II, but they got Diablo: Loot Box Edition.

You know what though? Once we’re done shedding some nostalgic tears like our boy Diablo up there, we’ve got stuff to keep us busy waiting for Diablo IV to eventually, maybe, someday come along. Here are the five best Action RPGs you can play right now to self-medicate and enjoy some truly awesome ARGP gaming on the PC.

Torchlight II (and Torchlight)

If you’re a Diablo fan, you absolutely have to play the Torchlight series. It was created by Runic Games, which was founded by Max Schaefar and Eirch Schaefer, who were the co-founders of Blizzard North. Blizzard North created Diablo, Diablo II, and Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, so the Torchlight series is arguably a true successor to the first two Diablo games.

Torchlight II is the series at its best, featuring four classes, a large Diablo II-style overworld with multiple towns, and online multiplayer gameplay for up to six players at a time. It also officially supports mods via the Steam workshop.

Have you already played Torchlight II? Go check out some user-created mods like SynergiesMOD, which is a full conversion that adds new towns, end-game raids, and legendary items.
