In video games, the open-world category is very interesting. Why? Because, in this category, you can do anything in the fantasy world of that game and it gives the feeling like you are the king or the conqueror of that world. Basically, an open-world category is a type of category of the game that offers free movements of the players in anywhere of the location provided in the game, interaction with unplayable characters, the things of that location should be usable enough whether they are money items or they are other purchasable items or more than that. An open-world game also means that the players have to play the game and complete the missions under a vast location where other unplayable characters and materials are present just like reality. An open-world game can be a third or first-person shooter game, it can also be a driving or simulation game or it can be an adventure game too. There is no exact rule that an open-world game must be an action game but mostly, when we hear about games under the open-world category, we assume them as an action game. Anyway, here we are with our best open world Android games that you should play at least once in your life. Some of them are my personal favorites and the rest are popular in their own way. Let’s know them one by one in detail for your convenience.

Basically, this is the mobile version of the PC game where you have to survive in epic action-packed third or first-person shooter 100-player classic battles, payload mode, battle duels, fast-paced 4v4 team death match, and zombie modes.

The only thing I am recommending you i.e. make sure your device is strong enough for this game as this app needs huge additional data to play otherwise it will lag and slow down your device. If your device is not so strong, you can go for PUBG Lite which is the weaker version of the main game or you can go for other popular open-world battle royale games like Gerena Free Fire, Hopeless Land: Survival, etc.
