Top 10 Open World Survival PC Games

August 26, 2019

10. Opening our list of the Top 10 PC Open World
Survival is Shelter Unlike most games on this list, Shelter boasts
a harmless adventure about love and family. Survive the hostile wilds and guide a mother
badger and her cubs to safety. Encounter deadly bird of prey, nighttime terrors
or mother nature’s unforgiving changes. Explore a world designed for a casual experience. It’s not a triple A game that boasts explosions
and lush graphics. It’s a game intended to create art and make
players feel entertained. To survive the forest, feed your cubs and
scavenge for food scattered around its world. But its myriad of challenges poses a bigger
threat than just an empty stomach. Make your way through dangerous landscapes
and immerse in the game’s beautiful soundtrack. The only way to survive is to find shelter,
and that’s your only hope. It has a PlayScore of 7.63 9. Dead Island Techland’s first game was a game-changer
to the open-world zombie survival genre. Set in a fictional island, follow the lives
of four people after a night of intense partying. A mysterious outbreak has plagued the island
causing everyone to become flesh-eating, psychopathic creatures. This is how the game begins. Once you step out in its world, experience
a nightmare where luck is your only hope for survival. Grab a suitable weapon and smack those undead
to gain experience points. The game has a mix of RPG and action elements. Upgrade your skill tree and customize weapons
to your liking in its Weapon Modding feature. With the game’s success, it spanned a couple
of standalone expansions and even gave hope for a possible sequel that’s coming out
sometime soon. Dead Island has a PlayScore of 7.94 8. Dying Light When we expected a sequel to Dead Island,
Techland instead gave us a whole new IP. This first-person survival game lets you roam
around a fictional third-world city quarantined due to a viral outbreak. The game is in a way similar to Dead Island. Players can explore a city populated with
flesh-eating creatures, and you can choose to fight or run away from them. Aside from its parkour and a bigger world,
the game’s twist lies in its day and night cycle. At daylight, scavenge and find important resources,
while at nighttime, survive a horrific experience as you encounter powerful zombie types that
would rip you to shreds in seconds. It’s in these day and night moments Dying
Light stand out, and that doesn’t even count the amount of new DLC’s that the developers
continue to pour in the game. It has a PlayScore of 8.14 7. Dead Rising Keiji Inafune’s take on the zombie survival
genre takes it into a different approach. Instead of running away from these braindead
monstrosities, why not we take our time and use them as enjoyment? The survival of the species still pose a greater
threat, but who’s to say we can’t have fun while we’re at it? It’s the first game of the series. Follow Frank West, a freelance photographer
caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. Find out the cause of this sudden virus and
show them who Frank West really is. Scavenge materials, craft absurd weapons,
and take down hordes of undead in style. Survive for at least 3 days inside the infested
shopping mall, and unlock the game’s multiple endings. It has a PlayScore of 8.23 6. State Of Decay Another Zombie game on the list. Undead Labs’ State of Decay is a single
player adventure that takes you to a land filled with the undead. Create your own story by meeting new faces
and build settlements so that you could live to tell the tale. It’s third-person gameplay was met with
good praise, but it’s lack of multiplayer made the game boring. That’s what sequels do. Compared to the Year One Survival Edition,
this doesn’t feature the new stuff including two gameplay modes called Breakdown and Lifeline
without you purchasing it. It contains the base game with deep survival
mechanics and unique stories to tell. We can’t wait for the sequel, because this
game has a PlayScore of 8.35 5. The Long Dark Explore Canada’s icy wilderness in this one
of a kind survival game from Hinterland Studio. Scavenge for the tiniest morsels, stave off
the bitter cold, and fight against the hungry predators. It’s one of the most fleshed out survival
games on the market right now. But it’s not a complete experience, the
game has its own episodic adventures. This separate story mode will feature two
chapters with 15 hours worth of story. For replay value, they also added a Challenge
Mode for the thrill-seekers. It has a PlayScore of 8.43 4. S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Call of Pripyat A direct sequel to GSC Game World’s radioactive
Shadow of Chernobyl title, and the third in the overall series. It brings us back to the post-apocalyptic
wastelands of Russia, but this time, we make a move towards the largely divided city of
Pripyat. Take on the role of Alex as he ventures to
the outskirts of the Chernobyl Power Plant in a bid to uncover the mysterious helicopter
disappearances in the Zone. Released in the wake of the series many glaring
failures, this third entry managed to save the franchise with its tense atmosphere and
improved gameplay. It has a PlayScore of 8.53 3. Don’t Starve Venture into worlds unknown in this german-expressionism
inspired game of gigantic proportions. In the increasingly blurred lines of genre,
Don’t Starve stands to be more rogue-lite than roguelike, though. It retains perma-death and randomly generated
worlds, but it mainly highlights exploration and survival over everything else. In this world full of monsters and creeping
loneliness, fighting for your life does not come easy. Venture around a world teeming with resources,
and use them to your advantage. Forage for food, unlock new technologies,
and fight against the sullen darkness and the transitory seasons. Don’t Starve also comes with plenty of unlockable
characters, each with their own different playstyles. Aside from that, gameplay might be fun, but
what really draws you in is its impeccable artstyle. It oozes with the gloomy artistry of the German
art movement. Bask in its eerie atmosphere and listen to
the character’s musical silence because this game has a PlayScore of 8.69 2. Minecraft When it comes to open-world voxel-based survival,
it was Microsoft’s Minecraft that started all that. This sandbox game with block-style visuals
is your go-to choice for your little brother and sister. Throughout the years, it still contains five
different game modes to choose from: Survival, Creative, Adventure, Hardcore and Spectator. It’s recent updates added a whole new feature
that lets the player host a server to interact with others. Survive together in a procedurally generated
world, or mess around by playing with bombs and building more portals. The game’s massive success gave Microsoft
the opportunity to port them on almost all gaming consoles including the latest Nintendo
Switch. It’s PC version, however, is known for its
creative use of its modding features. Now, it’s used as an educational and entertainment
tool for children. The future is bright for Minecraft and it’s
not going away anytime soon. It has a PlayScore of 8.74 Here are the Runners-Up before we reveal the
number one: 11. Tom Clancy’s The Division. Sweep the desolate streets of New York City
in this post-apocalyptic third-person multiplayer shooter. As an elite group of tactical agents, prevent
society from collapsing even more. It has a PlayScore of 7.59
12. Sheltered. A Deep and emotional survival game where you
take the role of protecting your family members after a global apocalypse. It’s like a pixelated version of This War
Of Mine, but with the same traumatic elements. It has a PlayScore of 7.52
13. Sir, You Are Being Hunted. An odd sandbox stealth experience where you
escape from robot-infested islands with violence, trickery and of course, stealth. It’s a mix between humor, and brutal gunplay. It has a PlayScore of 7.18
14. Betrayer. This first person action horror adventure
takes you to a New World at the turn of the 17th Century. Encounter ghosts and solve mysteries in this
once bright land. It has a PlayScore of 7.14
15. How To Survive 2. Survive solo or with your friends in this
zombie survival game from Eko Software. Fulfill your basic needs such as food, water
and shelter while defending yourself from this horrific undead threat. It has a PlayScore of 6.99 1. And the best Open World Survival game so far
is Terraria. Your little brother will love this. A game where the only your imagination limits
your creativity. Terraria is a sandbox-style game that takes
possibilities to a whole new corner. Its core fun lies within the freedom of the
players to seamlessly switch between exploration, combat and construction. While it might look like another Minecraft
clone, Terraria is a whole new beast entirely. It abandons the clunky 3D voxels for a more
graceful looking 2D environment. Start digging deep into caves guarded by monsters. Or take it easy. Claim your little turf, mine herbs, gather
weapons, and take on the grand quest for epic loot and rare items. Enjoy its rich survival elements and open-world
design. The world is your own canvas, create it. It has a PlayScore of 8.86

  1. this guys commentary is so terrible, i had to stop 2 minutes in, might as well get a robot to commentate. also wtf is this list?

  2. I think you've mistaken the "Survival Game" genre for one in which you just try not to die. Dying light is in no way a survival game, nor is Dead Island

  3. Ok I'm not a fanboy far from it but how did terraria beat Minecraft. It's sold what 20M copies which is damn impressive but Minecraft the Sandbox titan that it is has sold over 100M! I get it was measured with ratings and not sales but they should have been taken into account as the massive fan base shows its the better game overall. Sorry but if they two are the top Minecraft should have blown terraria out of the water and then some.

  4. Two years ago I'd personally put Stranded Deep on number 4 or 5. It had such a huge player base! The game was fantastic, everybody loved it, there were hundreds of thousands of people online at one time. Now, the development is a little slow and IMO the game is a bit too fantasized. I'd also say Subnautica should be up there aswell since it's Imo once of the best survival games ever made. My #1 personal though is The Long Dark. This game is just breath taking. If you've never looked into the game, I really suggest you do! Also, no zombies in it! 😀 (Yes I also understand this video was made in dec last year)

  5. Lets fuck the Zombies off now lads.. lets have a game where we have to survive goverment forces, build bug out shelters etc!

  6. Lol so Gandalf literally quoted the game called "The Long Dark" when he said "We must now face The Long Dark of Moria."(He must have used a Moria map mod haha)

  7. wtf man!!!!! the forest must be in the list its all about survive and hunt ….orrrrreee
    maybe you just put them for reflink

  8. Survival games are where you have to eat and drink to stay alive not an RPG dumbass

  9. You didn't even talk about the survival aspects of some games, like Pripyat you talked more about the story than anything :/

  10. If Pripyat is Russia then Washington D.C. is Iran. Please, learn geography otherwise people's gonna laugh at you. Greetings from Ukraine.

  11. Omg… why did you use the cubecraft trailers to set an example for minecraft. Cubecraft is just…. terrible. Terrible community, terrible staff.

  12. when you make a top 10 list with several honorable mentions… and you only name 2 actual survival game and continue to fap over zombie games without any survival elements in it O_o

  13. Theres litterally 4 non zombie games and 4 zombie, its half and half but people just really wanna complain about something so they complain about the entire list being about zombies

  14. You mean “top ten pc zombie games , zombie games are not the same as survival game with survival games we mean games as "the forest" stranded deep enz

  15. Seriously, after all the repetition of these games, do you NOT think we are aware of their existence?! Copy+Paste at its finest.

  16. Any other Aussies sick to death of the "my mates a pig" ads… I'd be fine with it if it wasn't so one sided
    .. They make believe women never act like tools.

  17. Are most of them zombie games or like minecraft i want games like minecraft with better graphics like evil land on mobile just for pc
