Participate in the game’s engaging primary quests or explore its many other exquisite entertainments such as side missions, sports activities and stores. Try hunting for game Easter eggs or simply barrel down Mount Chiliad to see how far you get before self-destructing.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
This version of the game series Kingdom Come completely immerses you in its rich environmental detail set in medieval Bohemia. Even character behaviors have been carefully crafted. For instance, should you forget to take a bath — not uncommon in medieval times — you may notice that the nobility is less inclined to converse with you.
Explore its endless realm as an innocent, unsophisticated commoner for whom the world holds myriad perceived dangers and rewards.
Assassin’s Creed Origins
In the Assassin’s Creed series, Origins stands out with enthralling scenery and richly populated scenarios. It teems with NPCs from all walks of life. Between communities, you encounter perilous hyenas, lions, crocodiles and hippos plus flocks of colorful birds.
After dozens of hours accomplishing the main quest, you have touched only a fraction of the game’s map. Perhaps best of all, Origins offers an alternative to killing-focused games with a murder-free tourism mode for stress-free exploration of its stunning worlds.
No Man’s Sky
This game’s first outing suffered from over-hype, but this version of the game makes up for that with its “open everything” attitude. You start with an entire planet and life just gets bigger from there. Once you have thoroughly explored a globe, you are ready to blast off to an endless collection of other worlds in the universe.
Go mining, explore for artifacts, build massive bases or seek out the local wildlife. If that is not enough, there are nearly a dozen No Man’s Sky PC mods you can try on such as resolution multipliers or LowFlight Mode.
In Subnautica, after crash-landing on an alien world, you must deal with its undersea environment using limited tools and knowledge. Survival starts from scratch figuring out what is edible, what is not, how to maintain oxygen or filter water while avoiding becoming some creature’s meal.
Full-on survival with a single life is not your only choice fortunately. Creative mode, for instance, lets you build and explore without threat of extinction. All in all, Subnautica is unique in offering the best of both fascinating imagery and problem-solving challenges.
Unleash the Explorer Within
Open world PC games, like no other genre, let players unleash their imaginations with boundless playing scenarios in beautifully crafted, highly realistic environments. Hopefully, this sampling of open world games inspires you to discover your potential for captivating, far-reaching journeys of exploration.
