The RPG genre has been on something of a hot streak for the past couple years. You can’t shake a stick without hitting a game that’s either borrowing elements from the genre or an excellent RPG in its own right. 2015 is no exception, and there are a ton of quality RPGs that planned for release in the coming year. That said, we’ve narrowed it down to 15 games that you should keep your eyes on next year.
This list is in no particular order.
15. Dead Island 2
All right, I know what you’re thinking: Dead Island 2 isn’t an RPG. But it kinda is, actually. Technically, it’s an action RPG. You’ve got stats, perks, upgrades, an experience system, and even classes to choose from, in terms of the characters. Dead Island 2 is set in sunny California, and will feature more fragile, and more deadly, zombies, according to developer Yager. You may have heard of them – they were responsible for 2012’s incredible Spec Ops: The Line.
