The Diablo series is great, no matter what format you play it on.
If you’re like us though, you’ve probably already played Diablo 3 and Diablo II Ressurrected to death on PS4. As such, we’ve had to search elsewhere for more of the frantic, loot-filled fun that the Diablo series provides. Thankfully we didn’t have to look too far to find similar experiences on PS4.
There’s a decent number of PS4 games that combine intense action with RPG mechanics and a healthy amount of loot. Want to know what they are? Read our list to discover more games like Diablo on PS4. Then you can go and acquire some of them, and engage in loot-filled adventures once again.

1. Baldur’s Gate Dark Alliance & Dark Alliance II
Set in the world of the classic RPG series, Dark Alliance and its sequel put players in direct control of their selected characters as they battle to protect what’s dear to them.
Like Diablo, these are hack and slash RPGs played from an isometric viewpoint, and they also have a strong focus on character development. As players gain experience and level up they’ll be able to upgrade their skills and stats, making them more formidable. And of course, there’s plenty of loot, too. To succeed, especially at the highest difficulty levels, players will need to find the best equipment for their needs.
Ultimately, while Dark Alliance and its sequel don’t look great these days – they’re from the 2000s, after all – they’re games like Diablo that are still worth checking out if you have a PS4.
2. Titan Quest
Spruced up and given a new user interface, Titan Quest on PS4 has its issues but it’s still a very worthy Diablo clone. Its story will take in excess of 30 hours to complete, there’s so much loot that you won’t know what to do with it, and its character development is surprisingly deep. Once you’re done with its campaign, you’ll find that there are some expansions to dive into as well, if you don’t mind paying for them.
The more you play it the more you become aware that it’s an old game given a new lick of paint, but if you love Diablo don’t let that put you off; Titan Quest has a great deal of entertainment in store for fans of loot-filled action RPGs. If you’re after games like Diablo on PS4, be sure to check it out.
3. Torchlight II & III
Developed by Runic Games, co-founded by some of the creators of the original Diablo, the Torchlight games are just what you’d expect. And thankfully for Diablo fans, the second and third entries in the series are available on PS4.
There’s plenty of adventuring to be done in both Torchlight II and III, and along the way you’ll be defeating hordes of monsters. What you’ll be most interested in, however, is the loot that they drop.
Torchlight II and III will feel instantly familiar to anyone who’s played a Diablo game, but that’s not a bad thing. With their colourful art style and randomised dungeons, there’s plenty of fun to be had with them. You can even play them in co-op with your friends. Needless to say, if you’re after games like Diablo on PS4, you should definitely give them a go.
4. Warhammer: Chaosbane
Set in the Warhammer fantasy world, Warhammer: Chaosbane is a dark hack and slash action RPG that very much apes Diablo.
Playing as one of four characters, you battle your way through four acts, defeating foul creatures and those who worship them with reckless abandon. Depending on the character you choose, you might have powerful magic at your disposal, or skills that lacerate your enemies and make them bleed. Though with a wide range of skills and abilities available once you reach max level, how you build your character is up to you.
Featuring local and online co-op, Warhammer: Chaosbane is one of the better Diablo clones that’s currently available. It’s just let down a little by its linear structure and failure to educate you about new gameplay systems as they open up. So, if you want a break from playing Diablo 3 on PS4, give Warhammer: Chaosbane a try.
5. Minecraft Dungeons
Think of Minecraft Dungeons as My First Diablo. It has all the ingredients, only it’s much more colourful, less gory, and a lot simpler.
After creating your character, you’re free to play Minecraft Dungeons alone or in a group. Either way, you’ll make your way through numerous campaign missions, killing hordes of enemies, collecting loot and levelling up along the way. As you level up you earn enchantment points, which can be used to bestow your weapons and armour with a myriad of useful powers.
It may start out easy, but Minecraft Dungeons does get tricky as you crank up the difficulty. And you’ll want to play on harder difficulties eventually, as that’s how you get the best loot. If you’re after games like Diablo on PS4, Minecraft Dungeons should definitely be considered. It’s been expanded upon quite a bit with free updates and paid DLC since launch, too.
6. Victor Vran
It has demons, loot and bucketloads of action, and it’s also one of the best Diablo clones on PS4. It is Victor Vran, and it’s available as a standard or fully-featured version complete with additional content.
The standard version of Victor Vran is budget priced, so it’s definitely worth checking out. Then, if you like it, you can buy the two additional expansion packs and it still costs the same as the fully featured version. Our advice is to definitely pick up the Motorhead: Through the Ages expansion as it rocks (pardon the pun). Chances are though, that if you love Diablo 3 you’ll have a great time with Victor Vran.
7. Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr
If you like Diablo games and the world of Warhammer 40,000, you’re onto a winner with Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr.
Combining the dark world created by Games Workshop with action RPG gameplay, your exploits in Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor – Martyr will have you facing off against masses of enemies, just waiting for you to put them out of their misery. And as you do so you’ll grow stronger as well as obtain useful equipment.
At launch, Warhammer 40,000: Inquisitor wasn’t received all that well. Since then, however, the game has received numerous content updates and patches that have improved it. It’s a very different game than it was at launch, and we heartily recommend it if you’re looking for more Diablo-like action – albeit in a slightly different setting.
8. Path of Exile
Previously only available on Xbox One and PC, Path of Exile is one of the best free-to-play games currently available on PS4. And even better for Diablo fans, many consider it the true successor to Diablo 2. Basically, it doesn’t hold your hand.
While you’ll love the fact that Path of Exile is a great looking action RPG that you can download and play without having to part with any cash, it’s the game’s deep character development, mountains of loot and ever-expanding content that’ll keep you hooked.
As Diablo clones go, Path of Exile is up there with the best of them, and you’ll only have to spend a penny if you want to support the developer and buy some optional content. Which you most certainly should. It really is amazing that you can play this great game for absolutely nothing with no catches. Go on. Give it a try.
9. The Borderlands series
Surely everyone has heard of Gearbox’s Borderlands series? If you haven’t, acquaint yourselves: it’s rather good.
Remastered for PS4, Borderlands Game of the Year Edition considerably improves the original game’s visuals. It also introduces some welcome quality of life improvements. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, on the other hand, bundles together Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, giving you hours upon hours of first-person shooting, looting, RPG action that you can enjoy alone or with friends. And guess what? They’ve both recently been on the receiving end of an update improving their visuals, too. Then there’s Borderlands 3, which is the latest entry in the series, and arguably the best.
Trust us, if you like Diablo 3 but also like shooting things in the face with guns, you’ll absolutely love the Borderlands games.
10. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands
Since we’ve included the Borderlands series above, we’d be remiss not to mention Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. A spin-off game set in an imaginery D&D-inspired world, this is Borderlands in anything but name. And that means, if you like Diablo games and you also enjoy first-person shooting, it’s a must-play.
Carrying over the wicked humour that Gearbox’s Borderlands series is known for – and in some cases, doubling down on it – there’s a lot to love about Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Not to mention its excellent voice acting (Andy Samberg! Will Arnett! Wanda Sykes!). Sure, it might not be the game most similar to Diablo thanks to the fact it’s played from a first-person perspective and revolves around guns. But consider the loot, the fantastical enemies and the endless dungeons to jump into and battle your way through, and it’s well worth checking out.
11. Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide & Vermintide 2
They’re easily the games that are the furthest away from Diablo 3 on this list, but Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide and its sequel still scratch the same itch. They both have loot, hordes of enemies and a progression system. Though viewed from a first-person perspective, you’re in the thick of the action in a way that Diablo 3 just can’t match.
Unfortunately the Vermintide games don’t have open worlds ripe for exploration; instead you head out on missions either on your own or with friends. But if frantically trying to overcome a legion of foes with melee or magic attacks is your thing, you can’t go far wrong with them.
While Alienation is level based rather than open world, its gameplay will definitely appeal to those who like Diablo 3.
After choosing a character class, you’ll progress through a campaign that will have you shooting and looting until the early hours of the morning. There are challenges to seek out, bosses to defeat, and explosions; so many explosions. It can get quite tough though – you’ll need to master its reloading mechanic and make use of all your available skills to succeed. It also helps if you play with others as a tight-nit unit. In any case, if you want a more concise Diablo-like experience on PS4, Alienation does the trick.
