The most anticipated open worlds of 2022

The most anticipated open worlds of 2022

Among the most anticipated open world games of 2022 are some of the biggest productions arriving in the year that has just begun. It is no coincidence that we are talking about a type of experience that can really give back a lot of content in relation to the purchase price, although this abundance does not always correspond to a constant degree of quality.

From the science fiction of Starfield to that of Avatar : Frontiers of Pandora, from the zombies of Dying Light 2: Stay Human to the mutants of STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl, from the evocative landscapes of Horizon Forbidden West to those of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2, from the magic of Elden Ring to that of Forspoken, passing through the heroes of Gotham Knights and Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League, here is our list.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, an evocative landscape of the game One of the most ambitious projects ever for Ubisoft, Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora will take advantage of the great anticipation of the second film in the film saga directed by James Cameron and its evocative lore to catapult us into an engaging open world adventure set on Pandora, the planet inhabited by the Na'Vi tribes.

In the game we will not directly control the character of Jake Sully, but an original protagonist who will find himself exploring an area never seen before first, the West Frontier, in search of something we do not yet know. In this part of Pandora, mysterious and dangerous creatures move, but also the ruthless troops of the RDA, determined to exploit the resources of the planet.

Dying Light 2: Stay Human

The Techland series has always boasted an open world setting, but in the case of Dying Light 2: Stay Human the setting of the game will be even more wide and full of things to do and see. Against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic scenario in which zombies have wiped out society as we know it, we will have to move to the big city and deal with the factions that govern it.

Who will we decide to fight? And who will we try to pull on our side? Every choice we make will have precise consequences which we will have to live with, and which may influence the course of events. When it comes to action, against human or undead enemies, we will be able to take advantage of an even more spectacular parkour-style movement system and powerful modular weapons. The tried and tested of Dying Light 2: Stay Human.

Elden Ring

Elden Ring, a look at the wide and disturbing open world scenario If it is true that the Dark Souls series has always lacked the open world component, Elden Ring will try to fill this gap in the best possible way, projecting us into a whole world created in collaboration with the famous writer George RR Martin. In the Elden Ring trial we talk about a dark fantasy setting as disturbing as it is fascinating, even more dangerous and divided after the destruction of the Elden Ring.

The fragments of the ring are hidden somewhere, and in the shoes of a warrior without the light we will have the task of exploring the vast scenario and facing the many pitfalls in order to find them, restore the artifact and become the Elden Lord. With a combat system and a degree of challenge frighteningly close to the tradition of From Software, will we be able to carry out this task?


Forspoken, the protagonist explores the setting The life of Frey Holland, a normal New York girl, is turned upside down when she finds herself in the magical world of Athia, ruthlessly ruled by a group of women with incredible powers, the so-called "Tanta". Frey discovers that she too has special abilities, at least in this new dimension, and decides to use them to help the inhabitants and find a way to get home.

This is the incipit of Forspoken, the open world action game produced by Square Enix and developed by Luminous Productions, a studio that can count on the contribution of people like Gary Whitta and Amy Hennig. Among the peculiarities of the game there is the possibility of using the magical powers of the protagonist also to move at high speed, flying from one land to another. The preview of Forspoken.

Gotham Knights

Gotham Knights, the characters on the roofs of the city Gotham Knights will finally mark the return of the videogame universe of Batman, albeit in an unexpected way: the The Dark Knight has disappeared and it's up to his young pupils Nightwing, Robin, Batgirl and Red Hood to replace him as defenders of the city. Their crime patrol will lead them to watch overnight to confront the thugs.

Compared to the iconic Rocksteady Studios trilogy, the Warner Bros. Games Montreal tie-in can count on a Gotham never so alive and pulsating, complete with pedestrians and traffic, capable of reacting dynamically to the spectacular clashes that will take place in its streets, whether it be gangs of thugs or the greatest villains that the Bat Man has ever fought.

Hogwarts Legacy

Hogwarts Legacy, a student walks through the corridors of the school of magic Without a doubt the most awaited title by many Harry Potter fans, Hogwarts Legacy will arrive on PC and consoles in the course of 2022 and soon we should finally see a more detailed presentation than the teaser trailer published by Warner Bros. on the occasion of the announcement. However, the assumptions are clear: we are talking about a game in which we will be able to attend the school of magic of Hogwarts, with all this follows.

Free to explore the open world represented by the iconic castle and its surroundings, for example the village of Hogsmeade and the Forbidden Forest, we will have the opportunity to attend magic lessons, learn new spells, train in the practice of the ancient arts and, in general, develop the skills of our character between one challenge and another, between one adventure and another.

Horizon Forbidden West

Beyond the fights with the robotic creatures that populate the world of Horizon and the hostile tribes who have learned to control them, we will be able to confront a more multifaceted climbing system, use a mask to swim underwater without difficulty and activate an energy shield that also allows you to glide when needed.

Starfield, an alien landscape The concept of the open world could even be close to Starfield, the new Xbox exclusive developed by Bethesda Game Studios. The game is in fact set in space, about three hundred years in the future, within a system fifty light years away from ours, after the events of a bloody war for the colonies that lasted twenty years.

In command of an explorer member of the Constellation organization, we will be able to travel from one planet to another, discover new places and face the inevitable challenges of a wide-ranging campaign: a real science fiction epic, which starts from realistic and plausible bases to deliver us a experience that promises great depth.
