Best Open-World Games On Xbox Game Pass | News World Tick (2023)

It could be said that open-world games encapsulate gaming’s best attributes and push them to their logical extremes — they offer fully fleshed-out alternate realities for the player to explore as they wish, generally affording them unprecedented levels of agency and freedom in determining their path through it. An open-world game has the potential to, almost literally, become a second life for the player to disappear into.

So it should come as no surprise that some of the gaming industry’s most prolific titles manifest as open-world games. And as luck would have it, a generous selection of these titles are at your fingertips if you happen to have an active Xbox Game Pass subscription. But which world should you dive into next? What are the best open-world games on Xbox Game Pass? For starters, you’ll definitely want to try these.

GAMERANT VIDEO OF THE DAY

Assassin’s Creed Origins

Approximate Game Length30-80 Hours
GenreAction-Adventure
DeveloperUbisoft Montreal
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreAssassin’s Creed Origins

Debuting on Xbox Game Pass on June 7, 2022, Assassin’s Creed Origins is a big get for Microsoft’s subscription service. The open-world franchise has been around for nearly two decades by this point, and while most of the older games are highly regarded, Origins stands out as it marked a new era for Assassin’s Creed. Consequently, newcomers can jump into this entry and not feel like they are missing out on anything.

Set in Ancient Egypt, the story follows Bayek and chronicles the roots of the eternal conflict between Assassins and Templars. As tends to be the case with Ubisoft’s open-world projects, Origins‘ map is absolutely massive and gorgeous; someone could easily get lost in this world. This entry also revamped the franchise’s combat system, offering more variety and depth.

Sable

Approximate Game Length7-20 Hours
GenreAdventure
DeveloperShedworks
X|S EnhancedReleased on Xbox Series X/S
Xbox Game StoreSable

Released on September 23, 2021, Shedworks’ Sable takes players on an open-world journey defined by discovery, side content, and vistas. With no combat to speak of and a relatively straightforward objective of collecting badges, Sable celebrates the more modest moments that define a grand journey. Sable’s rite of passage requires her to travel Midden in search of people to help, and she constructs an impressive bike along the way. Open-world games tend to be overwhelming in both scale and scope, which can make them tiring to take on. Sable is different; it lets players stroll and climb at their own pace. A game about self-discovery, Sable should not be missed.

Microsoft Flight Simulator

Approximate Game Length30-140 Hours
GenreFlight Simulator
DeveloperAsobo Studio
Xbox Game StoreMicrosoft Flight Simulator
Available only on Xbox Series X/S

Initially released on PC in 2020, Microsoft Flight Simulator has made the jump to consoles, arriving on the Xbox Series X/S on July 27, 2021. While perhaps not a conventional open-world, Microsoft Flight Simulator arguably represents the concept in its purest form, allowing pilots to traverse Earth in its entirety. Along with shorter and more curated trips courtesy of the Discovery Flights mode, Microsoft Flight Simulator permits players to just pick a spot and head out, experiencing the world in all of its beauty.

Black Desert

Approximate Game Length95-300 Hours
GenreMMORPG
DeveloperPearl Abyss
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreBlack Desert

MMOs tend to be a love or hate it type of deal, and Black Desert is certainly a divisive entry in the genre. While the story and quests leave something to be desired, Black Desert excels in its combat and massive world. The former takes inspiration from hack and slash titles such as Devil May Cry, although Black Desert is not quite as precise as Capcom’s franchise.

The game’s open-world is impressive, both in terms of scale and scenery, and completely embraces its sandbox structure.

Burnout Paradise Remastered

Approximate Game Length13-28 Hours
GenreRacing
DeveloperCriterion Games
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreBurnout Paradise
Requires EA Play

Burnout is an all-around great franchise, one that produced some of the most entertaining racers of the early 2000s. Burnout Paradise adapts the series’ frantic gameplay to an open-world structure, providing players with complete freedom in how they pursue their racing careers. Although small compared to most modern settings, Burnout Paradise‘s open-world is varied and immaculately designed. On these streets, speed is the name of the game, and there will be more than a few crashes along the way. The brilliance of Burnout Paradise‘s open-world fully becomes apparent once players memorizes the ins-and-outs of its structure, allowing them to zip through its roads instinctively rather than following markers.

Just Cause 4 Reloaded

Approximate Game Length15-30 Hours
GenreAction-Adventure
DeveloperAvalanche Studios
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreJust Cause 4 Reloaded

The Just Cause franchise has no illusions of grandeur. It simply provides chaos in a destructible world, and when done right, these games can be cathartic. Just Cause 4 landed with a bit of a thud as it felt like a retread of its immediate predecessor and garnered criticism for its outdated visuals. Just Cause 4 Reloaded smooths some of the base game’s rough edges, presenting a more enjoyable overall experience. Set in the fictional Solís, Just Cause 4‘s world serves as a solid playground to spread mayhem across.

Subnautica: Below Zero

Approximate Game Length20-35 Hours
GenreFirst-Person Adventure
DeveloperUnknown Worlds Entertainment
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreSubnautica: Below Zero

For those who finished Subnautica and found themselves craving more, the game’s sequel was added to Xbox Game Pass in September 2021. Subnautica: Below Zero returns players to 4546B, although the sequel shakes things up by exploring the planet at its coldest.

This fresh environment brings with it new biomes, creatures, and a bigger emphasis on land exploration, along with a whole host of things that threaten the protagonist’s survival. Like its predecessor, Subnautica: Below Zero blends its survival and exploration with base-building, and this mechanic is just as fun as in the first game.

Crackdown 3

Approximate Game Length7-25 Hours
GenreThird-Person Action
DeveloperSumo Digital, Reagent Games, Ruffian Games, Cloudgine
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreCrackdown 3

Crackdown 3 spent too long in the cooker and came out to an underwhelming reception. Sticking extremely close to the fundamentals explored by its predecessors, for better or worse, this entry is just another Crackdown game. The gameplay feels antiquated, the open-world is uninspired, and the visuals are pretty bad. Still, fun can be had with this over-the-top action romp, particularly once players unlock a few weapons and improve their powers. Not every game can be a masterpiece, but they can still offer something worthwhile. Permitting expectations are kept low, Crackdown 3 is a pretty decent way to kill a few hours.

Edge Of Eternity

Approximate Game Length30-45 Hours
GenreRPG
DeveloperMidgar Studio
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreEdge of Eternity

Edge of Eternity is an ambitious turn-based RPG from a relatively small company, and it features a vast and frequently beautiful open-world. Set in a universe rife with conflict, two siblings set out in search of a cure for their sick mother, a journey that will cause them to meet both delightful and fearsome NPCs. Edge of Eternity should be treated as an AA title, and the map can be a bit too big for its own good; however, this game is still impressive and should satisfy fans of old-school JRPGs. This is the perfect title for Xbox Game Pass since Edge of Eternity is one of those releases that could have otherwise flown under the radar for most people.

State Of Decay 2

Approximate Game Length15-70 Hours
GenreZombie Survival
DeveloperUndead Labs
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreState of Decay 2

Building upon the foundations of its predecessor, State of Decay 2 offers a string of sizable maps packed with starving zombies. Meagher Valley is arguably the best map in the game, but all of the others have their positives, particularly Drucker Country and Cascade Hills.

Focusing nearly exclusively on survival, State of Decay 2 tasks the player with building a community capable of withstanding the trials of existing within a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

Halo Infinite

Approximate Game Length10-30 Hours
GenreFirst-Person Shooter
Developer343 Industries
X|S EnhancedReleased on Xbox Series X/S
Xbox Game StoreHalo Infinite

Halo Infinite is not a traditional open-world as the single-player campaign is quite linear, with story missions often locking Master Chief out of certain parts of Zeta Halo. However, in-between the story beats are sections devoted to free-roaming exploration. Players can traverse Zeta Halo in search of secrets and side quests, and Halo Infinite‘s single-play map is impressive considering the open-world is not the main focus of the experience. 343 has crafted a tight first-person shooter that looks, plays, and sounds great. The linear missions are the highlight of the campaign, but Halo Infinite‘s open-world is a welcome addition to the franchise.

Terraria

Approximate Game Length50-200 Hours
GenreSandbox
DeveloperRe-Logic
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreTerraria

Debuting in 2011, Terraria‘s staying power is beyond proven by this point. Re-Logic’s action-adventure title pushes exploration to the forefront, presenting players with all of the freedom in the world to traverse its impressive procedurally generated sandbox map. Blending combat, survival, and crafting elements, Terraria is rich and diverse, and the game comes with an incredibly passionate fanbase. Besides the standard version of the campaign, Terraria comes with plenty of other modes that alter its difficulty, leading to wildly different experiences.

Minecraft

Approximate Game LengthN/A
GenreSurvival Sandbox
DeveloperMojang
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreMinecraft

No game encourages freedom and exploration the way that Minecraft does. As soon as players spawn into the world, there are no boundaries restricting what they do next. Building a mansion in the forest, mining to the depths of the world, or crafting the most intricate roller coaster are all options on the table. Though there are no quests sprinkled throughout the open world of Minecraft, the ability to do anything so chosen is the game’s main appeal.

The Ascent

Approximate Game Length12-25 Hours
GenreTop-Down RPG
DeveloperNeon Giant
X|S EnhancedReleased on Xbox Series X/S
Xbox Game StoreThe Ascent

Top-down shooters do not traditionally go down the open-world route, but The Ascent goes against the grain. And that’s for the best since Neon Giant crafted a fantastic cyberpunk city reminiscent of dystopias found in the likes of Blade Runner.

Advertised to hopefuls as a paradise but providing to be anything but to those who make it to the city, Veles is a living, breathing place; its grimy streets echo stories of oppression and deceit. Although The Ascent has its issues, this RPG is worth playing just for Veles, and that’s hardly the only positive in the game’s favor.

Elite Dangerous

Though a space flight sim might seem like a strange fit here, calling Elite Dangerous an “open-world” title is more than a bit of an understatement considering the game encompasses a scale replica of the Milky Way as we know it. And really, the role a player takes in piloting their ship through the endless expanse of space is as open as said galaxy is — whether it’s as a trader, a pirate, or humble asteroid miner making their daily haul, Elite Dangerous offers endless opportunity in an equally endless galaxy.

Lake

Approximate Game Length6-8 Hours
GenreAdventure
DeveloperGamious
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreLake

Lake takes place in Providence Oaks, Oregon, a quiet and picturesque village. Seeking a break from her life in the city, Meredith Weiss returns to her hometown and takes on a temporary job delivering mail. This role serves as the driving force behind Lake‘s gameplay loop and story; through her travels, Meredith meets familiar and new faces, learning more about Providence Oaks and its inhabitants along the way. Lake is a charming slice of life game filled with gorgeous scenery, endearing characters, and emotional weight. This indie title is also quite short for an open-world game, making it an ideal pick for a weekend stroll.

Skyrim

Approximate Game Length30-100 Hours
GenreOpen-World RPG
DeveloperBethesda Game Studios
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreElder Scrolls V: Skyrim

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has long been a definitive staple of the open-world catalog, and it’s likely to remain that way until the next chapter of the mainline Elder Scrolls saga manifests. Even today, players still wander the snowy tundra, lush forests, and decrepit dungeons of Skyrim in droves, which is no mean feat considering the base game was released in 2011. If for some reason you’ve yet to experience the epic tale of the Dragonborn, now’s as good a time as any. And if you already have, then you can pick from an extensive selection of mods that are available for Xbox consoles and fabricate a new twist on a familiar adventure.

SnowRunner

Approximate Game Length100+ Hours
GenreDriving Sim
DeveloperSaber Interactive
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreSnowRunner

Open-world games have a habit of blending together, however, SnowRunner is not going to be mistaken for any other experience except for the other titles in the Spintires franchise. This sandbox game puts players behind the wheels of an array of trucks and sets them loose on large maps to transport cargo. This delivery game demands complete attention, as each trip needs to be properly planned as a single bad decision can lead to catastrophe. SnowRunner‘s missions have a decent amount of variety to them as well, and the campaign manages to remain interesting despite its extremely lengthy nature.

The Good Life

Approximate Game Length20-30 Hours
GenreImmersive RPG
DeveloperWhite Owls
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreThe Good Life
(Video) Horror Games That Were Based On True Events #shorts

The Good Life is an acquired taste. Developed by White Owls and SWERY, this purposefully weird open-world RPG is reminiscent of the Deadly Premonition games, albeit with a more overtly comedic tone. Naomi is a photojournalist who ends up at Rainy Woods, an eerie town filled with quirky personalities and a deep dark secret waiting to be discovered. Blending mystery, simulation, and RPG elements, The Good Life sticks its fingers into a few too many pies, and not every part of the package comes together seamlessly; however, for those seeking a strange trip with a healthy sense of humor, this game should deliver.

Forza Horizon 5

Approximate Game Length20-90 Hours
GenreRacing
DeveloperPlayground Games
X|S EnhancedReleased on Xbox Series X/S
Xbox Game StoreForza Horizon 5

Playground Games’ Forza Horizon series has served as a reliable source for ambitious open-world racing games, and the fifth entry maintains the high standard synonymous with the license. Set in Mexico, Forza Horizon 5‘s map is considerably more diverse than its immediate predecessor, with each region having its own aesthetic that allows it to stand out.

Like with all of these games, Forza Horizon 5 blends realistic visuals and an authentic world with over-the-top arcade-style gameplay, and it is a match made in heaven.

Sea Of Thieves

Approximate Game Length30-150 Hours
GenreAdventure
DeveloperRare
X|S EnhancedReleased on Xbox Series X/S
Xbox Game StoreSea of Thieves

Rare’s Sea of Thieves had a somewhat rough launch, but the game has improved by leaps and bounds since its debut. Although not devoid of enjoyment for solo players, this is one title best experienced alongside a group of mates since so much of Sea of Thieves depends on the crew making its own fun. As pirates dropped into a vast and gorgeous open-world, adventure is constantly at their beck and call as crews seek to complete trade missions, find buried treasure, and survive against a Kraken or a ghost ship.

Rage 2

Approximate Game Length10-30 Hours
GenreFirst-Person Shooter
DeveloperAvalanche Studios, id Software
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreRage 2

Rage 2 essentially takes Doom‘s gameplay and drops it in a post-apocalyptic open-world. If that sounds appealing then this FPS is certainly worth a download. Rage 2‘s gunplay is by far its strongest feature, particularly once all of the Nanotrite powers are unlocked. Now, it should be said that Rage 2‘s open-world isn’t particularly memorable as it is a bit too barren for its own good and can come across as padding. Be that as it may, the combat is so much fun that it makes the journey worth it.

Batman: Arkham Knight

Approximate Game Length27 Hours
GenreAction-Adventure
DeveloperRocksteady Studio
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreBatman: Arkham Knight

The open-world formula of the Arkham series is only enhanced with the Batmobile at your disposal. Hurtling through the streets of Gotham in Batman’s iconic vehicle is a rush. Though it is always fun to soar from mission to mission using nothing but Batman’s cape, the experience is only heightened by intense car action. As with other games in the franchise, Batman: Arkham Knight is an exciting and easily digestible open-world experience, and the game comes with plenty of content outside of its main campaign.

The Forgotten City

Approximate Game Length5-10 Hours
GenreAdventure
DeveloperModern Storyteller
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreThe Forgotten City

Open-world games tend to take forever and a day to complete; it is part of their appeal. However, there are a few exceptions. The Forgotten City started life as a mod for Skyrim, before ultimately morphing into its own game set during the Roman Empire. Within the eponymous city, players are free to explore while speaking to NPCs and trying to figure out the history behind this paradise-esque location. The Forgotten City has a strong central mystery that develops nicely throughout the game’s short runtime, and the plot makes good use of a time loop mechanic. This 2021 release is a great pick for players wishing to get lost in an open-world for just a weekend.

Yakuza 6: The Song Of Life

Approximate Game Length30 Hours
GenreAction-Adventure
DeveloperRyu Ga Gotoku Studios
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreYakuza 6: The Song of Life

The sixth installment in the wildly popular Yakuza series hits long-time fans in the feels with its emphasis on familial ties. In addition to that, Yakuza 6: The Song of Life also provides players with a vibrant open-world setting in the familiar location of Kamurocho. Plenty of fun activities lie in store around every corner, and entertaining story moments are matched only by the robust combat system that is a staple of the Yakuza franchise. This marks the final chapter in Kiryu’s story, and Yakuza 6 serves as a worthy send off for the iconic protagonist.

Fallout: New Vegas

Approximate Game Length70 Hours
GenreAction RPG
DeveloperBethesda
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreNew Vegas

Though Fallout 4 may be New Vegas’ shinier, newer, and (slightly) better-optimized cousin, New Vegas is considered the crown jewel of Fallout’s three-dimensional, first-person outings for a reason. With Obsidian helming the effort, the roleplaying elements that were present in Fallout 3 were polished to a mirror shine that Fallout 4 couldn’t seem to pull off in succession.

(Video) Healing in Far Cry Be Like... #shorts #farcry

The Mojave wasteland may look a bit dated by modern standards, but the Courier’s fateful journey after being shot and left for dead still makes for a timelessly wild adventure.

Yakuza: Like A Dragon

Approximate Game Length45-100 Hours
GenreTurn-Based RPG
DeveloperRyu Ga Gotoku Studios
X|S EnhancedYes
Xbox Game StoreYakuza: Like a Dragon

Yakuza: Like a Dragon marked a new era in Sega’s franchise, and the game serves as a viable entry-point for newcomers who don’t feel like playing through the previous seven main titles. Although it retains the series’ penchant for brilliant storytelling and quirky side content, Yakuza: Like a Dragon changes quite a few franchise staples. Kazuma Kiryu steps aside as the protagonist to make room for the more juvenile but still likable Ichiban Kasuga. Yakuza‘s trademark beat ’em up combat also gives way to a turn-based battle system reminiscent of Dragon Quest. More importantly for this discussion, Yakuza: Like a Dragon leaves behind Tokyo’s Kamurocho for Yokohama’s Isezaki Ijincho, a refreshing change of scenery that will excite both old and new players.

7 Days To Die

Approximate Game Length50+ Hours
GenreFirst-Person
DeveloperThe Fun Pimps
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game Store7 Days to Die

Coming to Xbox Game Pass in April 2022, 7 Days to Die has been around for nearly a decade by this point, and while the game has its flaws, there is a reason it has survived for this long: the core gameplay loop is engaging. The title’s concept is also beautifully simple since the player’s goal is to survive as long as possible in a post-apocalyptic open-world overrun with zombies. Once death happens, a run ends, and the inclusion of randomly-generated maps means that no two playthroughs should be exactly the same.

Skate 3

Approximate Game Length10-40 Hours
GenreSports
DeveloperEA Black Box
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreSkate 3
Requires EA Play

Compared to Tony’s Hawk Pro Skater, the Skate series plays out more like a sim, one that comes with a reasonably challenging learning curve. Skate 3 is perhaps the most accessible entry in the franchise, primarily due to the implementation of an Easy mode, but the game otherwise sticks close to the fundamentals that have made this property so beloved.

Port Carverton is a city that loves skateboarding, and players are free to explore its districts as they steadily master the game’s plethora of tricks. Wisely omitting any real semblance of a plot outside of something extremely basic, this is an open-world game for people who just want to, well, skate.

Brütal Legend

Approximate Game Length9-20 Hours
GenreAction, Real-Time Strategy
DeveloperDouble Fine Productions
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreBrutal Legend

From the same company responsible for Psychonauts comes Brütal Legend, a game about a roadie who is thrust into the role of hero. Eddie Riggs finds himself teleported to a heavy metal-themed world, and he is set on a path to alter the tide of oppression as humanity has succumbed to demonic rule. Naturally, Eddie is armed with a guitar, luscious flowing hair, and a huge ax. Brütal Legend takes place in a reasonably sized open-world that has its fair share of secondary content, and the hack and slash gameplay is a ton of fun. The characters are generally charming, and the game has quite an impressive cast of voice actors, including Jack Black as Eddie. In its second half, the campaign adopts real-time strategy elements, a shift that can be a bit polarizing.

Outer Wilds

Approximate Game Length15-25 Hours
GenreFirst-Person
DeveloperMobius Digital
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreOuter Wilds

Open-world games typically are quite lenient when it comes to time, and Outer Wilds is both a perfect representation of that and the direct opposite. The protagonist, an astronaut, is stuck in a time loop that resets after 22 minutes when the sun goes supernova. During that time, the protagonist is free to explore a few planets while investigating the central mystery.

Alternatively, they can go off the beaten path in search of more personal storylines as they meet other travelers who are just relaxing around a campfire. Relaxing and simultaneously stressful, Outer Wilds is a unique and fantastic open-world game.

Goat Simulator

Approximate Game Length2-10 Hours
GenreSim
DeveloperCoffee Stain Studios
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreGoat Simulator

Expectations are key. Goat Simulator is not the most polished or deep experience on Xbox Game Pass; in fact, a few people might go as far as to describe it as a novelty. That said, plenty of fun can be had if someone simply wants to mess around in a game’s world as a rampaging goat that loves to lick things and has a natural inclination to be a nuisance. Goat Simulator welcomes chaos, and players will need to embrace that mantra to get the most out of the package.

The Long Dark

Approximate Game Length35 Hours
GenreSurvival Adventure
DeveloperHinterland Games
X|S EnhancedNo
Xbox Game StoreThe Long Dark
(Video) Did you know your PS2 can do this?

Survival-oriented titles are a common sight when browsing through any catalog of open-world games, but The Long Dark is certainly a standout mention among them. Stranded in the wilds of Canada after a cataclysmic weather event, players must consistently contend with the frigid cold and measure their bodily needs against the prospect of pressing onward. Though hauntingly desolate, the environments and art direction of The Long Dark make it a practical necessity.
