Hey guys!. In this post, I’ll be discussing a list of Top 5 Open World Games on Xbox Game Pass. Side quests, fast travel, and crafting await the adventurous player. Here are the Top 5 Open World Games on Xbox Game Pass. Alright, let’s get this top list started.

5. Yakuza 6. 

Yakuza 6 serves as the final farewell to the long-time series protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu. SEGA'S action/adventure series combines arcade-style melee combat with open world exploration. Kiryu tears through Kamurocho and Onomichi in a search of the man responsible for the hit-and-run on his daughter, Haruka.

She's in a coma, and we imagine Kiryu plans for much worse for whoever's responsible. Yakuza has always centered on arcade-style melee combat instead of gunplay. Those hoping for Grand Theft Auto in Japan may not get what you're looking for. 

Kiryu may be hitting the protein shakes in the morning because his brute strength is borderline comic-booky. In the middle of throwing fists? Why not pick up a giant six-foot traffic cone and swing it around like a twig? We didn't even know they made 6-foot traffic cones! 

Yakuza's natural flow between exploration and combat is an upgrade from past games where a loading screen broke the rhythm. It's also fun to bring the street fights indoors to a local convenience store. 

4. State of Decay 2. 

Appropriately developed by Undead Labs, State of Decay 2 is an open-world zombie survival game where resource management reigns supreme. Players can choose between three open-world maps to build their base and live out their zombie survival fantasy. 

Everyone has a zombie survival plan in their back pocket, but, let's face it, you'll probably end up in the horde with the rest of us. State of Decay 2 features a loose campaign but plays more like a go-until-you-don't-want-to sandbox. 

Stamina management is the key to survival as combat doesn't stray from the zombie survival blueprint. Your weapons can break, your ammo is scarce, and other humans are your biggest threat. The main difference between the original and State of Decay 2 is the addition of co-op. 

Up to four players can work together to build the most dominant zombie-survival community since Alexandria. State of Decay 3 is currently in the works, but no timetable has been established for its release. 

3. The Long Dark. 

If you enjoyed Stranded Deep, you'll enjoy The Long Dark. Your plane crashes, leaving you alone in the wild with only your thoughts to keep you company. Instead of getting stuck on a tropical island, you're left on a snow-capped mountain and frostbite is setting in. 

If we had to choose between the two, we'd rather get stuck on the beach. Hopefully, the rum is still there. The Long Dark offers three ways to play. 

You can progress through an episodic story mode combining the survival mechanics with an actual reason to survive, you know, other than not dying, or you can opt for the more streamlined experience in survival mode, which is just you versus the elements —and the occasional wolf. 

Again, if we had to pick between sharks and wolves, we're taking the sharks. At least they can't get you on land. Finally, if you're looking for a true survival experience, challenge mode will be right up your masochistic alley. 

In all three modes, you'll manage everything from body temperature to caloric intake. Resource gathering is more important than crafting, so you won't need to spend hours chopping down trees. 

2. Batman: Arkham Knight. 

The Arkham series has been a video-game icon for over a decade. However, there's always been something missing —something that feels like a must-have if you're going to make a Batman game… The Batmobile! 

Arkham Knight puts players in the front seat as they use it to get around the open-world setting of Gotham City. Of course, they can always leap from a skyscraper and use Batman's wingsuit to get where they need to go. 

Arkham Knight follows the story of Scarecrow who plans on releasing a toxic gas in Gotham City. He's aided by the mysterious Arkham Knight who proves a formidable foe to the Dark Knight himself. Aside from the main story, Batman has plenty of sidequests to keep players busy. 

You'll play short stories following classic villains like Penguin and The Riddler while teaming up with iconic sidekicks like Robin and Catwoman. Arkham Knight features a vehicular combat mechanic that turns the Batmobile into a full-fledged tank! 

Players will also use the Batmobile to solve pseudo-platforming puzzles from time to time. The gameplay never feels stale, whether you're blowing things sky high in the Bat-tank or punching Gotham's criminal underbelly right in the face. 

1. Sea of Thieves. 

Sea of Thieves puts players in control of their own cartoonish pirate fleet as they patrol the Seven Seas searching for treasure. You'll sail between islands, battle legendary sea creatures, and engage with an online community that can be friendly and toxic at the same time.  

Rare began development in 2014 drawing inspiration from Pirates of the Caribbean and The Goonies. Sea of Thieves went from legend to reality in 2018 with an enhanced version of the game released in 2020 for Xbox Series X. Sea of Thieves plays in third-person and exists in a shared world like any other MMORPG. 

Teams of one or two can sail in smaller ships while groups of players can dominate the seas in massive galleons. Every player has a role to play on the ship. One will be at the helm while another shoots the cannons. A crewmate in the crow's nest will spot booty-laden islands and enemy ships ripe with plunder. 

Sea of Thieves keeps things fresh with live community events, a pirate-themed battle pass, and consistent updates. There's always something new over the horizon.
