Whilst free roam games don’t have much of a presence in eSports right now, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t gaining in popularity. Free roam games allow for a much more personal, and much less intense user experience that you just don’t get with traditional FPS games. Here are some free roam games that you can play today!
Far Cry 5
The Far Cry franchise has been around since 2004, and since then Ubisoft has grown the fanbase across the globe. This growth was apparent in the sales numbers for Far Cry 5, which resulted in more than 25 million copies being sold. Taking place in Hope County Montana, the game manages to maintain the off-grid, destitute feeling that usually comes with a typical Far Cry game. Working to dismantle a murderous group of cultists across 3 major regions, players must endure a variety of storyline and side missions to defeat their enemy ringleader, Joseph Seed. Announced in 2020, Far Cry 6 is set to be released sometime in 2021.
Red Dead Redemption 2
Read Dead is another extremely famous free roam brand developed by Rockstar, the makers of the phenomenally successful Grand Theft Auto game series. Playing as Arthur Morgan, the wanted outlaw and member of Van der Linde gang, you traverse across frozen lakes and snowy mountain edges to the Old West. Despite being mostly free roam, you will face a number of story missions to allow for a thrilling adventure as you explore new areas throughout the American frontier.
The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim
Skyrim is an age-old classic in free roam gaming. With Skyrim’s initial releases dating all the way back to November 1994, the franchise has seen a lot of development over time. Produced by Bethesda Game Studios, the captivating storyline in Elder Scrolls is what transformed the game from a one-off production into an almost decade long attraction…
