Open world games are one of the best game genres that you can play right now if you’re more into the journey that games can offer. This is because open-world games provide a variety of immersive, adventurous, and breathtaking digital worlds that you can get yourself lost in. Sure, these games will also have quests, missions, an objective, and goals for you to complete to progress further. But most of the time, you have the freedom to do what you want.
You can complete these quests at your own pace and when you feel like it, it won’t hinder you from exploring the open world that the game is offering. But as open-world games become popular, it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Some games in this genre won’t provide you with the freedom to do what you want, except for the following games that we will mention in this article.
Without further ado, here are 4 of the best open-world games that are fun to play in 2020.
The 4 Best Open World Games in 2020
1. Animal Crossing: New Horizons
When it comes to new open-world games, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the best ones that you can play right now. Made for Nintendo Switch, it’s a game where you’re stranded on an island and your goal is to build a paradise for you and other villagers to live in. It does have some quests and objectives for you to complete.
But all-in-all, this game gives you the freedom to do what you want. You don’t even have to urgently complete all tasks or objectives to play the game. It is important to take note, though, that all of the things you can do are confined within the island. So, it’s not the typical limitless open-world game since you can’t travel anywhere you want. But it’s a fresh take and the game is very addictive to play.
2. Death Stranding
If Animal Crossing is a game that seems jolly and cheerful, well, Death Stranding is the opposite. It’s a game made for PC that is set in a post-apocalyptic world, where your goal is to rebuild the world. However, it won’t be easy since you will also have to deal with a variety of unusual enemies like the BTs. They are ghost-like creatures that you can see because of the fetus strapped to the main character’s chest.
But what’s amazing about this game is that you will be graced with a beautiful, fascinating, yet unnerving world. It’s a game that is not for everyone, but it’s a great game to play, especially if you are a gamer who loves playing open-world games.
3. Ghost of Tsushima
Another great new open-world game to play right now is Ghost of Tsushima, which is available on PS4. One of the great things about this open-world game is that it’s set in the era of the samurai. Thus, expect this game to be full of sword-clashing action, providing great combat gameplay. Moreover, the game also has a striking and deep story, so you will get hooked trying to complete it as well.
What’s really inviting about this open-world game is how the environment feels Zen-like. Outside the clashing of swords and violent situations, you can explore a peaceful lake, clear skies, and just wonderful and calming nature surrounding you.
4. Wasteland 3
Wasteland 3 is another new open-world game that you can play in 2020. It’s a turn-based role-playing game that is the third installment of the series Wasteland. This game continues where Wasteland 2 left off.
If you’ve played Wasteland 2 before, then you can expect Wasteland 3 to provide the same bloody combat gameplay that is full of slaughter. And if you’re tired of completing quests and missions, you can just explore the world at your leisure and see what it has to offer.
Many open-world games are coming this year like the Watch Dogs: Legion, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Cyberpunk 2077, and more. But the ones mentioned above are the best ones that only came out this year. If you’re looking for old open-world games, Minecraft, Grand Theft Auto V, and some of the most acclaimed open-world games are still a good choice. But if you’re looking for new games, then the ones on this list are your choices.
