So, whether you want to travel back in time or explore a life of crime, you can do it from the comfort of your gaming chair. Here are the five best open-world games for PC.
Fallout 4 is a role-playing action game that was released in 2015. It takes place in a post-apocalyptic world overtaken by many enemies, including robots, mutants, and fellow human beings. Your mission is to figure out where your son is, but while doing so, you’ll find yourself doing quests for side characters and battling enormous enemies to save yourself and those around you. Plus, you get a dog companion!
The gameplay in Fallout 4 is excellent, so make sure you make the most out of it with a light-weight cabled mouse from MouseOne and a high-quality keyboard.
Red Dead Redemption 2
There is a lot to say about the fascinating and rich world of Red Dead Redemption 2. Following up from the first game, it takes you back to 1899 America, where the Van Der Linde gang are struggling to survive as bandits in an ever-increasingly civilized world.
You play as Arthur Morgan, a morally ambiguous outlaw who’s views shift as you make your way through the beautifully crafted world. Saying much more would enter spoiler territory, but rest assured that you’ll enjoy the hours spent shooting, crafting, and simply taking in the breath-taking views.
Assassins Creed: Odyssey
Time and time again, the creators of Assassins Creed have allowed gamers to experience ancient history in a way like nothing else. Released in 2018, the action role-player Assassins Creed: Odyssey takes you back to Greece in 431BC, where you get to decide whether you fight for Athens, Sparta, and more.
While you will enjoy experiencing invigorating battles, you will also get to view the beauty of Greece from thousands of years ago. Plus, you get to decide whether you want to play as a man or a woman, giving you flexibility with your gaming experience.
The Witcher 3
In The Witcher 3, you play as bounty hunter Geralt of Rivia in a fantasy world. The beautiful game is full of magic, fighting, and monsters, and you’ll be at the front of the battle as a monster slayer. The story itself is extensive, primarily because it is based on the books by Andrzej Sapkowski. If you want to spend many hours exploring a fantasy land, then you can’t go wrong with The Witcher 3.
Grand Theft Auto 5
By now, most people have heard of Rockstar’s city-focused 2013 action-adventure game GTA 5. Taking place in San Andreas, you play as several people making their way through the city and doing different jobs for people. You’ll make money, drive fast cars, and experience a whole load of violence. Upon game completion, you can then head over to the still-thriving world of GTA 5 online, where you can meet real-life people and choose a life of innocence or crime.
