8 Amazing Open World Games Not To Miss In 2015 On PS4 and Xbox One
I love open world video games. Within them are tons of places to explore, NPCs to meet, quests to take and ultimately crafting a story of your very own. From the Elder Scroll and Fallout series to Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, there are so many great video game titles we could recommend right now for playing. Though if you're like me, most of these titles have already ended up in your collection. If that's the case, then take note of these 5 upcoming open world video game titles you'll want to pick up when they release.
Mad Max: Developers: Avalanche Studios, Release Date: 2015
Taking the events from the movie series Mad Max, players will be able to take the role of the main character and travel around the post-apocalyptic world. While news and details are scarce for the Mad Max video game, it would seem that players will have to locate their most treasured vehicle after it was taken from them. With the world at its post-apocalyptic state, players will deal with various groups in which combat from in-vehicle and out will be required. A slew of different weapons will be available along with a crafting system that will allow players to make new weapons and upgrade their vehicles.
Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain: Developers: Kojima Productions, Release Date: 2015
Hideo Kojima's upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is said to be a massive title in terms of the Metal Gear Solid series. This time around, Phantom Pain picks up right after the events of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes where Venom Snake roams Africa and Afghanistan during the Soviet War. Without spoiling too much in case you didn't play Ground Zeroes yet, our favorite mercenary is off to track down those responsible for the Militaries Sans Frontiers destruction. Unlike most of the previous installments, players will be able to explore and enjoy different vehicles like planes, helicopters even motorcycles to hit different campaign points within the map.
Dying Light: Developers: Techland, Release Date: January 27, 2015
If you enjoyed Dead Island then there's a good chance you'll be a fan of Dying Light as it's by the same developers. Players will be tossed into a zombie apocalypse once again where the world is their playground. Details as to the storyline for Dying Light are scarce but it would seem that the same game mechanics are being implemented from Dead Island. Players will go through the game with all sorts of incredible melee weapons along with the ability to craft weapons of their own. One new element that Dying Light will have which will differ from Dead Island is Parkour. Navigating through the city will be easy as your character will be able to jump, climb, leap around the city with ease.
Tom Clancy's The Division: Developers: Ubisoft, Release Date: 2015
Tom Clancy's The Division is an upcoming third-person shooter. Set in the near future, a disease has spread across the world leaving it in shambles. On the edge of society completely caving in, players will take part in a group known as Strategic Homeland Division. As a member of this group your main goal is to preserve what is left of the society and clean up the mess by any means possible. Coming equipped with advanced tools and the ability to play cooperatively online as you transverse throughout the map, The Division is shaping up to be a must play title.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt: Developers: CD Projekt RED, Release Date: February 24, 2015
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt wraps up the story of Geralt of Rivia where he must take on a new mission. A new otherworld army known as the Wild Hunt broke through the Northern Kingdoms and the only person who is able to stop the chaos happens to be the Witcher. Players should expect a large open world that is said to be around 30 times larger than the previous Witcher system, intelligent AI and an incredible living world.

Batman: Arkham Knight takes place one year after the events of Batman: Arkham City. Scarecrow has returned to Gotham City and with him comes several of Batman's enemies all working together to once and for all kill the Batman.

Just Cause 3 details are a bit scarce right now. We know that the game will be set on a Mediterranean island with Rico Rodriguez as its protagonist. The map size will be similar to Just Cause 2 with more terrain and locations to explore. Currently the game is set to release sometime in 2015 so news of the storyline and what to expect for Just Cause 3 should be released relatively soon.
