Love the Diablo series and own an Xbox console?
If the answer is yes to both of those questions, it’s safe to say you’ve already poured countless hours into Diablo 3 and Diablo 2 Resurrected.

That’s where we come in: we’ve rounded up some of the best games like Diablo available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

So, sit back, get comfy, and read on through our list of games like Diablo on Xbox. You’ll be thankful for it when you’re knee-deep in both corpses and treasure.

This list was first published in 2018 and has been periodically updated since.
1. 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 or Diablo 2, be sure to give Warhammer: Chaosbane a try. It’s available for both Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S, but it unfortunately doesn’t support Smart Delivery.
2. Grim Dawn
With critics hailing it as the spiritual successor to Diablo 2 you’ve been waiting for, you know you’re onto something good with Grim Dawn.
Previously only available on PC, Grim Dawn has finally launched on Xbox after a lengthy wait. It was worth it though – not only is this action RPG great fun to play, but it looks fantastic too. If you’re familiar with Diablo you know what to expect: quests, monsters, lots of skills, and more importantly, loot. Honestly, there’s not much more you could ask for.
If you’re done with Diablo 3 and need something to play that will while away the hours, Grim Dawn should be at the top of your list. It’s certainly one of the best games like Diablo you can get on Xbox consoles right now.
3. 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. Needless to say, if you’re after games like Diablo on Xbox, Minecraft Dungeons should definitely be considered.
4. Titan Quest
Originally released in 2006 on PC, Titan Quest is now also also available on Xbox consoles more than a decade later. Spruced up and given a new user interface, Titan Quest for Xbox One has its issues but is still a very worthy Diablo clone and can be played on Xbox Series X/S consoles thanks to backwards compatibility. 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.
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. It may be old, but this is definitely one of the best games like Diablo available on Xbox consoles.
5. Torchlight II & III
Originally released on PC back in 2012, Torchlight II has finally made its way to consoles seven years later. And of course, it’s full of monsters to slay and loot to collect.
Developed by Runic Games, formed by the creators of Diablo, Torchlight II actually felt more like a sequel to Diablo II than Diablo III did at the time, minus the horned one himself. While Diablo III has grown and improved over the years though, Torchlight II has remained the same. The result is that it feels a bit dated now, and there are one or two issues introduced thanks to the porting process.
Torchlight III, on the other hand, is much better. It has more detailed visuals, a quirkier roster of characters, and increased gameplay depth. If you love the Diablo series, chances are you’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of it. It’s just a shame that its endgame content isn’t all that interesting. In any case, if you’re after games like Diablo on Xbox, both of the Torchlight games are worth playing. They’ll keep you occupied for tens of hours, but just won’t blow you away.
6. Warhammer 40,000: In|quisitor – 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 considerably. So, if you fancy slaying hordes of enemies and collecting loads of loot in the dark world of Warhammer 40,000, definitely consider giving Inquisitor – Martyr a try.
7. Path of Exile
If there’s one thing better than a free game, it’s a free game that’s bloody good. Path of Exile is both of those things.
Path of Exile looks good on a standard Xbox One console, but on an Xbox One X or Xbox Series X it’s really impressive. Even better is that it’s a joy to play thanks to its deep character development, mountains of loot and ever-expanding content. 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.
8. The Borderlands Series
Surely everyone has heard of Gearbox’s Borderlands series? If you haven’t, acquaint yourselves; it’s rather good.
If you’re wanting to play chronologically, start with Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition. This is the ultimate version of the original game, packing in numerous improvements and all the game’s DLC. Then there’s Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, which bundles together Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel with all of their DLC. Borderlands 3 is the biggest game in the series to date – and we can’t forget spin-off Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. Altogether they provide hours upon hours of first-person shooting, looting, RPG action that you can enjoy alone or with friends.
Trust us, if you like the Diablo series but also have a fondness for shooting things in the face with guns, you’ll absolutely love the Borderlands games.
9. Warhammer: End Times – Vermintide & Warhammer: Vermintide 2
The Vermintide games are easily the furthest away from the Diablo series on this list, but yet they still manage to scratch the same itch.
They both have loot, hordes of enemies and progression systems. But with the action viewed from a first-person perspective, you’re in the thick of it in a way that Diablo 3 or Diablo 2 just can’t match. They don’t have open worlds, either. Instead, you head out on missions alone 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 Vermintide or its sequel. You’d be wise to at least give them a go if you’re after games like Diablo on Xbox.
10. Victor Vran
It has demons, loot and bucketloads of action, and it’s also one of the best Diablo clones to land on Xbox One. 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 the Diablo series you’ll have a great time with Victor Vran.
