5 video games with the largest open world
The VGR portal has compiled a selection of video games with the most large-scale maps of the open world (the five leaders are described below, and all 10 rating games can be found on VGR). It is noted that when compiling the rating, only a single map was taken into account (relatively speaking, representing one game world): that is, for example, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has a huge map, but it is divided into several different worlds, the transition between which requires loading. In addition, the selection did not include video games where huge spaces have little unique content: for example, Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, where most of the game world is almost the same open ocean; by the same principle, for example, No Man's Sky was not included in the rating.
Black desert online
Black Desert Online is an MMORPG developed by Pearl Abyss and released in South Korea in 2014 (the game was later published in other countries). This is one of the most successful games of this genre in recent years. The gaming world of Black Desert Online is approximately 400 square kilometers.
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Xenoblade Chronicles X - an action / RPG video game released on Nintendo Wii U in 2015; developed by Monolith Soft. The open game world of the game includes five continents of the fictional inhabited planet of the World, which people who were forced to leave Earth began to populate. The area of the Xenoblade Chronicles X game card is approximately the same 400 square kilometers. By the way, the game is one of the few open-world projects released on Wii U.
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands
Ghost Recon Wildlands, released last March, has the largest gaming world among all Ubisoft games. This video game, which, by the way, is the first part of the Ghost Recon series with an open world, includes a game world with a total area of about 440 square kilometers.
Just cause 3
The third part of Just Cause has the largest game world among the games in the series (whether the next part will be able to break the record of this game is still unclear). The area of the Just Cause 3 game card is approximately 1, 000 square kilometers! The protagonist is given many options to overcome such vast spaces, including cars, helicopters and a personal wingsuit. Just Cause 3 was released by Square Enix in 2015.
