Updated August 25, 2020 2.0k votes 356 voters 29.8k views28 items

If you have a subscription for the Xbox Game Pass on your Xbox One, you've got tons of great RPG titles right at your fingertips. Let's take a look at the best RPGs available on Xbox Game Pass, including dragon-fighting adventure games like The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and newer games like Sea of Thieves that let you command a pirate ship.

While the PlayStation and Nintendo platforms have long been known as being friendly to the RPG genre, that doesn't mean the Xbox doesn't feature plenty of amazing titles you can play thanks to the Xbox Game Pass. If you like the idea of tracking your choices to determine whether or not your character follows a path of good, or tends to run more towards a path of evil, Fable or Fable II might be the game franchise for you. Not only do you get to go on an epic adventure, but you can also buy property, marry, and slaughter just about anyone who gets in your way! If you prefer a more apocalyptic offering, Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 are both available on the platform and are ready to take you on an adventure through the wasteland in one of the best role-playing games on the market!

Vote up the Xbox Game Pass role-playing games you'd most want other gamers to check out, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide for what to play next!
