Mass Effect Andromeda and The Witcher III Wild Hunt may be the hottest titles of the open-world RPG genre, but the sad truth is that you’ll need quite a fancy gaming rig to play them.
Well, we’re not going to show you how to save money or what to choose in terms of high-end computers. Instead, we’ll show a couple of open-world games you can play on any low-end PC. They might not be as eye-pleasing as The Witcher III, but at least they’ve got compelling stories and, most importantly, they’re fun to play.
So, relax, get your Steam account ready, and, of course, continue reading our article, because you’re in for a treat.
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood (Best Choice in Open-World PC games)
Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood is the sequel of Assassin’s Creed 2. After discovering the Apple of Eden, Ezio and his brother assassins must find and eliminate the member of the Templar Brotherhood who took over Roma.
Brotherhood is all about open-world, climbing, running, hunting for treasure, using cool gadgets, and uncovering a threat older than humanity itself. The game can be played using the traditional keyboard and mouse combo, but, for a better experience, we recommend buying a gaming pad.
