More and more each year, video games continue to get more ambitious, and more often than not, that ambition results in massive worlds for players to explore. Open worlds are, of course, more ubiquitous than they’ve ever been, but even games that aren’t technically open world experiences end up offering large worlds for players to dive into. There was no shortage of those in 2021 either. These were the biggest video game worlds of the year.
FAR CRY 6
No year is complete without Ubisoft putting out another new massive open world game. Far Cry 6 was the company’s big release for 2021, and to no one’s surprise, it delivered a huge sandbox, in terms of both, size and variety. While there are plenty of people out there who’re getting a little sick of what’s come to be known as “Ubisoft bloat”, there’s an equally sizeable contingent of players who’re more than happy to keep diving into worlds as large as this one.
