5 great open-world games to get during the Steam Winter Sale 2022
5. Spider-Man: Miles Morales
Released on PC in November 2022, Miles Morales brings the best of Insomniac Games to the platform. Praised for its visual presentation, narrative, and gameplay mechanics, Miles Morales is a must-play. The PC port of the game comes packed with Ray Tracing enhancements, exclusive features, and even ultrawide support. Miles Morales is a great successor to Spider-Man Remastered with meaningful upgrades, and a compelling story, making it a must-grab.
4. Grand Theft Auto 5
Those who haven’t got their hands on Rockstar’s GTA 5 for some reason have no better time to get in on the hype. Aside from its brilliant story mode, GTA Online makes for a great perpetual world where players can work up their way up to rule the city. Recent content updates have rebalanced the economy making it easier than ever to get involved. With GTA 6 a few years away, this is an opportune moment to experience one of the most complete open-worlds.
3. Yakuza 0
SEGA’s action-adventure behemoth, Yakuza 0 made its way to the PC platform in 2018. Largely popular in Japan, the Yakuza series’ western foray on the PS4 was quite the hit, prompting the publisher to bring it to PC. What followed were a bunch of PC ports and remakes that truly did the series proud. During this Steam Winter Sale, players can step into the shoes of Kiryu Kazuma and Goro Majima for a nail-biting crime thriller.
2. Forza Horizon 5
A departure from the others on this list, Forza Horizon 5 is one of the best casual racers out there. With a large open world, extensive list of cars, and deep multiplayer integration, Forza Horizon 5 is a brilliant all-rounder. While not as ‘sim’ focused as its motorsport counterpart, FH5 makes for an approachable driving experience for all audiences. Replete with jumps, races, customization, and weekly playlists, the game has enough to keep players hooked for weeks.
1. Horizon Zero Dawn
Horizon Zero Dawn was one of the first PlayStation exclusives to make it to PC, and it made a big impact. Originally released on the PS4, Horizon Zero Dawn received a bunch of enhancements in its PC port. Aloy’s story across a post-apocalyptic Earth is rich in action and provides deep lore for players to explore. With its sequel Forbidden West currently out with no PC release date in sight, the Steam Winter Sale is the best time to get into Guerrilla Games’ open-world.
