We're living in a golden age of sprawling and exciting open world games. Here are some of the best on PC.

The best open world games on PC to play in 2022

Elden Ring

FromSoftware creates some of the most intricate, morbid worlds we've seen, and Elden Ring was its first time creating a less linear experience. This is easily the best open world game of 2022.

Red Dead Redemption 2

A monunmental ode to the fading American frontier, RDR2 is rife with little touches. Random events—like sucking on a man's snakebite wound—make its world feel lived in.

Release: 2019 | Dev: Insomniac

Marvel's Spider-Man

The movement in Spidey is smooth and snappy, making those transitions from flying across the city into fighting against New York's criminals simply sublime.

Cyberpunk 2077

Cyberpunk 2077 was a disappointment at launch, but after a lot of patches it's turned into an amazing open world. Seeing the game's skyline flickering with neon lights is dreamy.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The vanguard of a new wave of open world games, The Witcher 3 is able to leverage the power of modern gaming systems to create environments of extraordinary detail and scope.

Metal Gear Solid 5

MGS5 comes into its own as an open world game when you stop using the helicopter to get to missions, and work your way through each of its two massive landscapes. A masterful stealth sandbox.

Release: 2015 | Dev: Kojima Productions
