33 Best Open World Games for PC

Open world, Sandbox and Free Roam are terms for video games where the players can freely explore the environment. An open world is a game designed as nonlinear, huge areas with multiple ways to accomplish an objective. The open world games offer greater exploration compared to a series of smaller levels, or a stage with linear tasks. The games with free-roam and open world lack the invisible walls and enforce many limitations in the environment, either because of in-game limitation or absolute technical limitations by the linearity of the game. These games offer a simulated reality and enable the players to develop their avatar and its behavior in the path of their choosing. In some cases, there is often no end or goal to the game. Some open world games use the real setting to create the environment, such as New York, Paris, and others. Open World games consist of a large environment, mission-based tasks, non-player characters, and freedom to move anywhere around the players.
