PC Game Pass allows players to utilize the power of their PCs to play several games of all types. This system's value is that it will enable you to play multiple games for one flat monthly fee. So if you are a relatively frugal player, this is fantastic. In addition, RPGs allow us to experience vibrant worlds within them. In light of that, here are our picks for the 5 Best RPGs on PC Game Pass (March 2023).

5. Tunic

Beginning this list with a lovable title, we have TunicTunic is somewhat of a love letter to those more challenging and adventurous RPGs of years past. Players will be able to traverse through its world and discover many secrets. The game also features a gameplay style that is reminiscent of these adventure games. This makes for a game that players can revisit and have different experiences every time. While the game does borrow heavily from games such as the Souls series or The Legend of Zelda, it does so very tastefully.

One somewhat unique aspect of the game is the fact that the game's lore is shrouded in mystery. This is due to the fact that the language in the game is seldom comprehensible. There is even a fantastic mechanic in which players, throughout their journey, will form a game manual for the game. As game manuals are somewhat of a thing of the past now, this is wonderful to see. All in all, Tunic is an incredibly charming game that invites you on an adventure. So if you haven't, you definitely should play this game through the power of PC Game Pass this March.

4. Monster Hunter: Risebest nintendo switch 2021

Monster Hunter: Rise is a splendid title in its own right. The game, which is part of the critically acclaimed Monster Hunter franchise, stands to live up to its predecessors and make a fantastic experience for players. For those unfamiliar with the series, players will hunt ferocious monsters using a variety of weapons. Each of the game's weapons feels unique in how you use them and has its own learning curve for doing so.

This gives the game an amazing sense of depth to its combat. While the story is serviceable, the main appeal of this game is its combat. This is one of the best combat systems within an RPG, allowing players to adapt to any situation. There are different monster weaknesses and strengths that you will face while trying to harvest creatures to craft armor and weapons. If you haven't experienced a Monster Hunter game, then it is a great time to do so, and Monster Hunter: Rise being included within Pc Game Pass means that it is more accessible than ever.

3. Darkest Dungeon

For those who are looking for a somewhat more grueling experience, then Darkest Dungeon certainly applies. This game features many game mechanics and systems reminiscent of older RPGs. So if you are someone who enjoys gothic aesthetics and lore, then this is certainly a game to give a try. Players must use their wits if they hope to survive, as they will face many different creatures in turn-based combat. Tactics will have to be used by the player in order to stay one step ahead.

While many of these types of games focus on the fun and excitement of adventure, this game holds a mirror to the experience. Exposing the grueling aspects of these journies, this game is truly unique in how it chooses to approach a heroic story. In addition, the emphasis on tactics in combat is also fantastic and invites the player to learn more about the world as they go through it. These elements all combine to make this title what it is. So if you haven't done so already, definitely check out Darkest Dungeon on PC Game Pass this March.

2. Jade Empire: Special Edition

Changing things up quite a bit, we have Jade Empire: Special Edition. This game, which was lovingly crafted by BioWare, sees the player journeying through the Jade Empire. All of the characters within this game are well-realized, and for an older title, it still holds up graphically to this day. The character interactions each lend themselves to a vibrant living world for the player to explore. The game's combat is also a unique blend of action and strategy as well. There are two paths you can ultimately walk on in the game, The Open Palm or The Closed Fist. This becomes a journey for the player and is absolutely fantastic.

The character writing and quests within the game still stand out to this day as some of the best in the industry. There is a reason why this game is so highly held. Players will have to engage with their own choices throughout the game and form meaningful relationships with the game's characters. Its commitment to quality storytelling makes this game stand out even to this day. For that reason, Jade Empire: Special Edition is one of the best RPGs on PC Game Pass, even in March 2023.

1. Persona 5 Royal

If you are a fan of JRPGs and haven't experienced the Persona series, you are certainly missing out on one of the best JRPG franchises. The Persona series is itself draped in a style that is both palpable and unique to itself. Everything from the game's score to many different elements throughout the game makes it, so it is a journey so well worthwhile. Players will play as academy students as they engage with the supernatural elements of the game. In addition, the turn-based combat system has been streamlined and improved to make for a wonderful experience, even for newer JRPG players.

So if you haven't played Persona 5 Royal, then PC Game Pass is the perfect avenue for you to adventure throughout this game. The amount of time that you can pour into this game is staggering, with Royal featuring more content than the base game itself. So if you are someone who enjoys JRPGs or is simply a fan of great games, then definitely use your PC Game Pass in order to play one of the best RPGs in recent memory.
