Over 90 hours long, with more than 70 quests, Divinity: Original Sin 2 was made to feel like a never-ending journey. Whether gamers have completed it and are prepared for another excursion or they still haven't gotten around to it but want another fresh storyline, there are options for all.
This list showcases other games in the genre that excel in lore, combat, art style, and more. These isometric RPG's lean towards roguelike action or tactical Dungeons and Dragons combat. Games like Divinity: Original Sin 2 are hard to come by, but there are some worthy competitors out there. There will never be a boring day in life with this many cRPGs to play.
Updated on February 23, 2022, by Sharnelle Earle: Divinity: Original Sin 2 opened doors, being one of the most successful and highly favored RPG's to date. Isometric, turn-based RPGs are not a mainstream genre that's constantly evolving in style and providing multiple games a year. That's why when something with potential pops up, it's worth checking out. Divinity: Original Sin 2 may take around 100 hours to play, but it came out in 2017. Everyone knows the game inside and out. Below are extra games to check out that play like Divinity: Original Sin 2 so you can scratch that RPG itch.
Because the game uses the Dungeons & Dragons SRD 5.1 Ruleset, your actions and choices are based on dice rolls. Gameplay mechanics are tactical and complex so that every move you make matters and affects what happens.
The game has rougelite elements, where you're constantly going through ruins and dungeons to take down monsters. It's got procedural generation and heavy storytelling. When your heroes die, you get to reroll with the same hero, or you can let them die with honor.
One of the more popular and recent party based RPG's on the market, Gloomhaven limits your immersion to hex grids and board game mechanics when traversing through the game. Despite this, the game is 3D and full of life.
Gloomhaven is an ambitious cRPG based on an actual board game. You can choose from up to 17 different characters, all whom have over 1,000 abilities to unlock and master as you play through the game.
It's a turn-based strategy gameset in the 1930s with a tabletop feel to it. Players get to travel through a map to their destination, read the lore, and get into battles. There's a catch though: if the player dies, they have to start all over again. Luckily the heroes played with keep their experience no matter what!
Torment: Tides Of Numenera is another open-world RPG featuring a party and turn-based combat. It's the second game following Planescape: Torment which was positively received. Some players have mixed feelings about Torment because it focuses more on the adventure and story rather than lots of action and challenges.
For anyone who enjoyed Divinity's lore and wanted more mature stories to dive into, Torment is the game to play. Its content is very philosophical, where \"Your words, choices, and actions are your primary weapons.\"
This game is more similar to the mechanics of an RPG like Divinity due to the HUD interface filled with potions, powers, and health. It's a dark fantasy adventure where the player controls an exile (shocking!) who seeks revenge.
Dragon Age is a classic fantasy tale that has three major games now. The first one, Dragon Age: Origins, takes the cake with looking and feeling more like a regular RPG than the other games in the franchise.
It's a franchise and game filled to the brim with original lore and a fully developed world for players to explore. Players can customize their character from physical looks to the powers and weapons they yield as they tread through a Dark Spawn apocalypse and nationwide war. This is more of an adventurous experience where you can romance companions and change political tides.
Pathfinder is originally a tabletop role-playing game, but developers were able to make it an isometric PC game with the help of Kickstarters. The visuals of the game highlight effervescent bright lights that create a magical atmosphere and include the action and story gamers really want.
Taking it back to the OG gaming roots, Baldur's Gate is reminiscent of games like Fallout 1 and 2 with its graphics and simple HUD. Baldur's Gate II is a continuation of the adventure started in the first game.
The player treads through medieval catastrophe with the challenging question of whether to be good or to give in to evil. The game brings players simplicity so that they can focus on their own adventure, choices, and lore of the world.
Pillars Of Eternity was created by the same developers who did Fallout: New Vegas and other successful RPG games like The Outer Worlds. This is an open-world fantasy where the player's choices matter and exploration has never been so extensive.
In this game, players can choose to be human, elf, dwarf, or things more unknown like Aumaua, Orlan, and Godlike races. It is definitely worth checking out if players need to scratch that Divinity itch.
Masquerada: Songs and Shadows chooses to use a more cartoon art-style that uses bright, attracting colors and friendly faces. The journey that awaits gamers is entirely voice acted and full of bright sounds and music.
The game does not contain turn-based combat, but a pause-system can be enabled that allows players to change positioning and control the way the fight is going. This is an action-packed adventure full of magic and music.
This is a game that isn't quite like the others. Instead of a fantasy role-playing game where the player encounters dangerous monsters and caverns full of dangerous men, Disco Elysium puts players in the shoes of a drunken detective who doesn't know what he's doing or where he is.
Recommending a game from the same studio that made D: OS2 just makes sense. Moreover, the game comes from a storied franchise that draws upon D&D. Larian brings their more streamlined approach to combat and lovely storytelling to the Baldur's Gate franchise in the early access Baldur's Gate 3.
Since the game's early access launch in September 2020 there have been a few patches. Changes included the typical performance-related issues. But Larian is taking in as much criticism and feedback as they can to produce a game all of the fans love, enjoy, and feel a part of.
Hades is the latest entry from Supergiant games (known previously for Bastion and Transistor). The top-down roguelike features RPG elements and some romance options. While the combat is much more like a hack and slash, the story is engrossing and uses Greek mythology to draw players in and anchor them in a world.
But the world feels real and alive despite the player dying a bunch. The game is designed to let the player learn through failure, something Divinity fans may be all too familiar with if playing on Tactician mode.
This game might have a sci-fi, alien-fighting setting, but it sets the gold standard for turn-based combat. Though XCOM Enemy Unknown is a great game, XCOM 2 is the epitome of what this franchise represents in terms of compelling story and stellar gameplay.
It is set many, many years before the events of Divinity: Original Sin 2 and follows two Source Hunters. Direct timeline tie-ins with D: OS2 have not been discussed. But, to put things in perspective, Bracchus Rex is a boss fight in this game.
Like XCOM 2, the Wasteland series features a futuristic setting instead of a fantasy one. There's also a fanatical Ronald Reagan cult that, paired with other motifs in the game, brings a very nostalgic feel in the same way the Wolfenstein games do to a dystopic future setting.
But Wasteland 3's best feature is how it amps up the importance of choice to 11. Fans of D: OS2 know how fantastic the power of choice makes games. So, if that's a top priority, check out Wasteland 3 for some unique gameplay.

We've identified that this issue actually comes from the game(s) code. The reason why this issue doesn't occur on previous drivers is due to a code bug, they were taking longer than 8 seconds for 'modeset.' However this was actually undesired behavior since it affects a number of other scenarios.
