Best Open World Xbox One Games

If you want the best open world games, you should look at the ones that have been hand-picked by us because of how well they play and the journeys they take you. Skyrim or Elden Ring? There’s something for everyone on this list.

That means games like Pokemon Legends: Arceus won’t be on this list because they don’t have open worlds, like those games. It’s possible that we’ll see a Pokemon game on this list before the year is out.

We can say for sure, though, that these top open world games will take up all of your free time. They have so many rich digital worlds that you won’t mind getting lost in them completely. These games have been played by us and we can tell you that you’ll have a good time with any and all of them. Take a look.

1. Death Stranding

Death Stranding

Available on: PS5, PS4, PC

Death Stranding may not be for everyone when it comes to its story, but Kojima’s new game is a great open world. This is both a walking simulator and an action game. You’ll be walking around for a long time, working with other players to rebuild and build, and seeing what they’ve left behind in their wake. It’s very different, and when the music starts, it’s even more beautiful.

2. Terraria

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, Nintendo 3DS, PSVita

(Playable on Xbox Series X and PS5)

So many things can happen in Terraria that it almost crosses over into the open world. Build a house and protect it from the things that want to knock down the door and eat your brains out of your nose. It’s your choice whether you want to ignore the monsters and dig into the earth to find valuable resources or just explore to your heart’s desire. Whenever you feel like you’re strong enough, and maybe even a little bit cocky, wait for one of the game’s bosses to randomly attack you. In the end, there’s always a better thing to do, like build a new cave or add another story to your house.

3. No Man’s Sky

No Man’s Sky

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5, Xbox Series X

When you play No Man’s Sky, you’ll go on a journey around the star system that’ll make you feel like an interstellar explorer. It now has 30 hours of story content, new lore, new ways to interact with its NPCs, portals that make it a lot easier to move between planets, and terraforming, which makes moving between planets a lot easier. There were even more features and changes in the No Man Sky’s Beyond update, like ridable aliens, a new social system, and virtual reality support, which made the game even better. There have been a lot of changes to the game since then. There are more features, a better story, and more ways to get lost in space. The open world in No Man’s Sky isn’t real. It’s a galaxy, and you should go into it if you look good in a spacesuit and love finding exotic alien animals.

4. Watch Dogs Legion

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC, Xbox Series X, PS5

Those high-tech devices in Watch Dogs Legion can move! You control all of the puppets in this game, and boy, can you make them all dance! Like in real life, getting more followers for your secret hacking group, DedSec, means more power for you and your friends. Any Londoner can be your playable character, and you can build a team with them and fight against the people who are making life hard for everyone.

5. Dragon Age: Inquisition

Dragon Age Inquisition

Available on: PS4, Xbox One, PC

(Playable on Xbox Series X and PS5)

The game Dragon Age: Inquisition makes it so you don’t have to go around in a huge world on your own. It has a lot of companions for you to play with and a lot of sidequests that you can play with them in. You don’t want to waste their skills, after all. As a bonus, Dorian Pavus and the rest of the companions are some of the best party members in the business. The game has a lot of side quests, and at first, it can be hard to keep track of them all. But if you remember to take advantage of the fact that there are multiple areas to explore right from the start, you’ll soon be able to figure out which ones are worth doing right away. Because the story will also keep you interested, it’s worth the time you spend on it.

6. Minecraft

Available on: Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch

(Playable on Xbox Series X and PS5)

It’s true that Minecraft isn’t really a game, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t open-world. Punch trees, mine deep into the mountains, and try not to fall into lava in this huge exploration game. Minecraft is a game where you can be as creative as you want. People have built entire cities, working computers, tall statues, and so much more on its blocky landscape. You can use achieveable, er…achievements to give your games a little more structure if you want. When you get tired of the normal world, you can start exploring the Nether and build your next fortress there. So you have two open-world environments to choose from. What a deal!

7. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim

Everyone knows about The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. When the game came out in late 2011, the whole world got to play one of the biggest Bethesda games ever made. In truth, this is a game from a few years ago.

There are many random encounters, upgrades, and missions in Skyrim, which makes it a real RPG game for many people, even though it doesn’t have a lot of story. What makes this even better is that it has one of the largest open worlds on Xbox One.

8. Fallout 76

Here’s another game made by Bethesda. It has a world that’s a little bigger than Skyrim. But the thing that makes Fallout 76 unique is that it is a Multiplayer action-RPG, which makes it stand out. This means that the open world can be shared with friends, family, or strangers, just like in real life…sort of.

Makes the experience even more realistic: It also takes a lot of time and money to do, which makes it even more realistic. But, joking aside, this is a game that is always getting new content and will keep getting new content, making its already big open world even more lively with time.

9. PlayerUnknown’s Battleground

PlayerUnknown's Battleground

To separate 100 people, make them travel and hunt each other on a map of that size, what would the game need? It looks like PlayerUnknown’s Battleground has found the answer to the question There are a lot of different maps in this game, both in terms of what they contain and how big they are.

But, for this comparison, let’s take its largest map, Erangel, which is about 8×8 km in size. To walk from one side to the other in real time, it would take about an hour. Why should you play this game with friends on Xbox One?
