When it comes to good open world games for Xbox One, there is a pretty good amount of variety. For that reason, we're ranking the best Xbox One open world games, with the help of your votes. 

One of the newest Xbox One games that has you exploring the universe is No Man's Sky. Released in late 2016, this game makes gaming dreams come true with jumping from planet to planet. If you never played Sea Of Thieves, it's a must-play open world game for any Xbox One owner. Other options include The Long Dark, Assassin's Creed Origins, and Fallout 4.

Not every open world game on this list is an Xbox One original - take Grand Theft Auto V for example, which came out in 2013. However, all these open world games are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite open world game for Xbox One, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
