The Best Open-World Games For The Xbox One

Updated October 6, 2020 1.3k votes 123 voters 3.4k views27 items

When it comes to good open-world games for Xbox One, there is a pretty good amount of variety. 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 for any Xbox One owner. Other options include The Long Dark, Assassin's Creed Origins, and Fallout 4.

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