7 Open-World Games From 2021 You Have To Play

There are a lot of open-world games from 2021 that you need to check out if you like those sorts of things. I’m here to talk about the 7 most impressive ones that need to be on your must-play list.

Of course, this is a personal list, but I will list all the objectively positive aspects of each game and why I found them so mesmerizing. Let’s start things off with Far Cry 6, the latest entry in Ubisoft’s highly acclaimed open-world action-adventure franchise.

Far Cry 6

  • Price: € 59.99

Far Cry 6 and its gameplay don’t really innovate much. After all, once Ubisoft hit the gold mine with Far Cry 3, there was no need to change up the formula at all. That being said, Far Cry 6 is a PC game that is there to provide you with tons of visceral action, a vast world, and a big cast of interesting characters.

Far Cry 6 is set on Yara, a fictional Caribbean island dominated by Anton Castillo, the game’s big bad. The game puts us in the shoes of a guerrilla fighter called Dani Rojas. While reluctant to join the cause at first, Dani becomes a full-fledged freedom fighter once she sees the brutality Anton Castillo is capable of.

Far Cry 6 features coop gameplay, so there’s no need to take on this sinister dictator on your own. These games are a lot more fun when you’re playing with a friend anyway. Far Cry 6 also offers the biggest map the franchise has seen thus far, and we finally get a villain that dominates each scene he’s in with his cold-blooded and authoritative presence.

The Forza Horizon 5 map is huge. Absolutely gigantic, and since the game blends simulation and arcade-style racing, the game never gets boring. Because the controls are intuitive and the handling is forgiving, Forza Horizon 5 and its gameplay focus on making each ride enjoyable. That isn’t an issue since all Forza Horizon 5 cars are killer machines and all the racing maps are absolutely gorgeous.

Forza Horizon 5 is a PC game that doesn’t hold back on its graphical fidelity. The open-world map of Mexico is full of different landscapes, from volcanos, beaches, cities, jungles, you name it. That’s not all, as the game also has a dynamic weather system. Expect to drive at high speeds through jungles while a roaring tropical storm washes over you.

Valham is a Steam game that popped up one day on Early Access and quickly become one of the best-selling games of that and the next couple of months, maybe even a whole year. The Valheim map isn’t the biggest in terms of open-world games, but it’s filled to the brim with content.

Valhaim has bosses, constant updates, tons of crafting and building options, and much more, and it’s still an Early Access game. If you need an indie game that has co-op and enough content to keep you occupied for a good while, Valhaim is the game for you.

Since it is in Early Access still and receives regular updates, Valheim is like an investment. It’s a game that’s only going to give you more enjoyment over the years. You can defeat all of Valheim’s bosses now, but can you imagine how many more will come later down the line?

  • Price: € 59.99

Monster Hunter Rise is a PC game that you must play if you’re into open-world games and challenging combat. It’s everything Monster Hunter: World is, just carefully compacted into a smaller package. One that’s a lot more enjoyable to play, that is.

When you go over and see Monster Hunter Rise Steam User Reviews, you won’t find anything but praise for this title. It removed away everything that was tiresome and unnecessary from the Monster Hunter formula and focused on making everything accessible and fun.

The biggest improvement we see in Monster Hunter Rise and its gameplay is the addition of a grappling hook. That’s just one of many this entry made, and all of them made this the best first Monster Hunter game for those unfamiliar with the franchise. The map isn’t as big as World’s, but it has plenty of content to keep you occupied for a long time.

In my Biomutant review, I said the game wasted a lot of its potential. While that is true, that doesn’t mean that you should avoid Biomutant as a game altogether. It’s still a title that features a gorgeous and vibrant open world full of psychic, kung-fu using mutated critters.
Biomutant and its gameplay are just solid enough to keep you entertained while you explore this giant world. Unfortunately, Biomutant’s multiplayer was never added to the game, which is a huge shame. If Biomutant had co-op, it would greatly improve the game’s fun factor.
Still, Biomutant is one open-world game that isn’t a must-play like the others, but everything it mixes still makes it a title that’s worth checking out if you need more of that open-world goodness.

The Ascent

  • Release Date: July 29, 2021
  • Price: € 29.99
The Ascent is a game for everyone that loves their cyberpunk settings and themes. It’s a rather hectic top-down twin-stick shooter, but not the regular kind. No, people that buy The Ascent on Steam like their twin-stick shooters improved with RPG elements.
When I wrote my The Ascent review, I was quite pleasantly surprised by the game’s faithful representation of its cyberpunk themes. In the game, you’re a worker that’s enslaved by a sinister mega-corporation. Pretty basic stuff so far.  All of a sudden, the mega-corporation fails and turns the entire area into a deadly battle royale.
The Ascent has co-op, and the game’s battles are a much more savage and enjoyable massacre when you have a friend with you. So if you need something to play with a friend, definitely pick up The Ascent on PC.

The Ascent Full PC Review

Subnautica Below Zero

Below Zero has a gigantic map, but this is not its selling point. When you read any Below Zero review, you will find that everyone was absolutely blown away by the game’s stunning depiction of alien environments. Every single one of them was portrayed with such attention to detail. It’s all vivid, mesmerizing, and captivating. Everything an alien environment needs to be.

On the other hand, Below Zero multiplayer? Doesn’t exist, which is a great shame considering how excellent this survival game actually is. Very difficult, very engaging, and very unforgiving at times. Everything you need this type of game to be.
