But let s look at times, what open worlds we could explore so far this year and which is still open to us in the remaining weeks, stands out: The yield is quite low. Far Cry 6 is the only classical open world to AAA level, if we exclude Fora Horizon 5 and Riders Republic taking a special position as a sports and racing games. And otherwise? Biomutant has unfortunately revealed as a great disappointment and this month awaits us with Sherlock Holmes: Chapter One, a title that now is anything but a blockbuster.

Are we honestly: 2021 is not a particularly sparkling year for fans of action and role-playing with a lot of movement? Since we are now actually used another. The good news is that 2022 is a much better open-world seems to be born. There are already announced plenty of games and certainly not one or the other is revealed., You have to enjoy clear at this point release lists for the coming year with a lot of caution because shifts are, especially when such an extent monsters, no rarity.

Ok, the two actually speak completely different target groups, yet a shift in the GTA alternative would not surprise us. Elder Ring is at least one of the master-waiting games at all. It is the first Open World Epic of FromSoftware (Dark Souls: Remastered) and should not only offer wide levels, but also much playful freedom. For example, you will simply skip some boss fights. Also, new is the mount, from whose back can even fight. And no bang: The typical fromSoftware Level design will still exist in the form of the so-called legacy dungeons.

While we at S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 are pretty confident that it is really real, we stay skeptical about The Day Before. The Survival Game of the Russian Developer Fantastic (The Wild Eight) sees for a project from a team that has not achieved so much within the industry, too well. The Gameplay shown so far wants to finally sell us that The Day Before simply is the best Open World Zombie Survival multiplayer game of all time — quasi what Day and Co unfortunately have never become: chic graphics, decent gun play, Great masses of zombies and a detailed game world. We prefer to be careful. But what s the name of it? The hope dies last.

Another game, which we have seen little to date: Star field. 2018 was announced at E3 with a teaser video that has just revealed that it is a science fiction game. There was this year at E3, the first in-engine-scenes, but no real gameplay. We now know a few details to the world and its fractions, but how Star field will play? How big it is? Whether one is flying through space itself or the planets are as connected in Mass Effect via an overhead world map? No idea! And if the game really on November 11 appears? We are skeptical.

The jetpack is back on the field again, but this time in an improved form: You can fly into Alex 2 freely through the air while also struggling. In addition, Piranha Bytes remains true: There are again three fractions, which you can join, many consuming some characters, a hand-built game world full of mystery, action-packed combat system, which is not to repeat the mistakes of its predecessor.
