Anyone who dabbles in some high-end PC gaming knows that when it comes to an open world game the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 struggle to compete. This is not to put down those consoles as they are awesome. However, a powerful PC running an open world has faster load times along with better visuals and textures.
Today we are taking a look at some of the best open world games for PC! If you are a PC gamer and love games that have a large sprawling world for you to explore these are the games for you.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
If you want a game that is going to push your gaming PC to the limit then, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the game for you. You play as Geralt who is a powerful warrior (well Witcher) and he will stop at nothing to get his daughter back. The story in this game is phenomenal, but it has one of the most impressively large open worlds with a fantasy setting that you will ever play through.
Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
Say what you will about the Assassin’s Creed series, but Ubisoft nailed it with the last two games, especially Assassin’s Creed Odyssey here. The ancient Greece setting of the game is really awesome and it is very diverse with the different locations that you can explore. With some excellent combat and some amazing visuals If you have a powerful PC. This is a game that you will have a great deal of fun with.
Grand Theft Auto V
To say that GTA V is a game changer is a massive understatement When Rockstar announced that this was coming to a gaming PC near you, people lost their minds. With one of the best stories, the series has ever seen. GTA V lets you play as three very different characters in a massive LA type city that actually feels like it is alive! Seriously as great as the story in GTA V is. Screwing around and just doing what you want in this large open world is a huge part of the fun.
As a Bethesda game, Fallout 4 can have a few “technical” issues as their games often do. That is easy to look past as this nuclear decimated open world is one of the most impressive on this list. Fallout 4 really does not hold your hand and you are encouraged to explore as much of the land as possible. Seeing how the nuclear fallout has changed things is really cool and the RPG mechanics that the game has, along with the combat make for a very exciting and addictive game that any PC gamer should give a try.
Batman Arkham Knight
Granted this may seem like a rather “out there” choice. However, Batman Arkham Knight for PC has had a ton of work done on it to make it a game that is truly amazing. This open world Gotham City that you get to explore is truly amazing. If you have a powerful PC then you will be very impressed at how sharp Gotham looks. The story is great, combat is the best it has ever been and you can now finally get behind the wheel of The Batmobile!
