The most popular label in today’s game world is "open world". As long as a game is labeled with the open world, the level of the whole game can be improved a lot. Of course, there are also many players who are very fond of open-world games. In 2023, there will also be many open-world games online. In this article, we will take stock of those open-world multiplayer games that will be launched in 2023.
When it comes to PearlAbyss, a Korean game company, some players may be a little strange. If you mention the action tour "Black Desert" developed by PearlAbyss, I believe many people have heard of it. After the success of Black Desert, PearlAbyss started the development of new games, and the most anticipated one was Red Desert.
"Red Desert" is an epic fantasy MMORPG, which describes the vast mercenaries who fought for survival in the mainland. The game has realistic game characters, and it was developed by Zheng Huanqing, the development director, and the Li Chengyu action designer who was in charge of the action of C9. The game has been developed since the second half of 2018 and is the next generation flagship MMORPG of PearlAbyss.
"Red Desert" combines narrative-driven single-player game and multiplayer game factors, and describes the vast battle waged by mercenaries in Paiyue mainland for survival. Using the new next-generation engine launched by the studio, this game will provide high-fidelity image quality and game functions, as well as an immersive game experience.
More interestingly, the game positioning of "Red Desert" was MMO online game at first, and then changed to a mode similar to "GTA5" at the end of 2020. The ontology is a stand-alone game. After customs clearance, you can choose to play online mode, and you want to speed up the game online in this way. In the latest financial report, PearlAbyss said that "Red Desert" aims to be developed within 2023. At the same time, it also said that the multiplayer game version of Red Desert will be imported after the plan.
In a sense, the behavior of skipping tickets makes the game keep its original taste. Players can also play MMORPG’s "Red Desert", which is a mistake.
There should be many players who still remember the previously released sci-fi blockbuster "Dune". Now the Dune IP game Dune: Awakening will be launched in 2023 to meet with the majority of players.
Dune: Awakening combines the courage and creativity of survival games with the social interaction of large-scale persistent multiplayer games, creating a unique and ambitious online game for survival in the open world. The player’s journey begins on the planet Ares, alone on the most deadly planet in the universe. Follow the story in the game through the whole sand dune, and you will meet people in movies and books.
Dune: Awakening vividly reproduces the epic scenery of Alex. Explore deep canyons full of caves, ancient underground ecological laboratories, endless undulating dunes, and other places. Stroll in the bustling village, and then bravely enter the lawless and ever-changing desert, where robbers can easily find their prey.
Players can create their own bases and choose each one from a series of different styles of buildings. Look for hard rocks away from roaming sand worms and set up temporary outposts for your interests outside the shield wall. You can also build weapons, armor, vehicles, accessories, modified parts, etc., hone your own production skills and get the rarest schematic diagram.
"Once Human" is an MMO game with the theme of open world and new tales of mystery survival sandbox developed by Starry Studio and Netease. The game is expected to be in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Once Human’s story is set in a post-apocalyptic world with the collapse of human civilization. The world suddenly opened the door of silver one day, and then disaster came to the world. The "stardust" from the universe has polluted the creatures on the earth and the vast majority of land, and countless creatures have become distorted bodies. At the same time, the power of the Silver Gate also attracted the existence of "superiors" from the ectopic surface to the planet …
In the game, the developer highly purifies his understanding of the new tales of mystery, and embeds it as a visual symbol in every corner of Once Human-frightening Cthulhu-style monsters, big world scenes full of strangeness, and those supernatural and indescribable game atmospheres and designs, thus deducing a post-apocalyptic world that combines supernatural, futuristic science fiction and bizarre horror, and deepening the grotesque but beautiful artistic expression core of the game.
In addition to stunning artistic images, the plot of the game also plays an important role in shaping the "New tales of mystery". The original doomsday background story will be decrypted continuously during the player’s journey. With the plot eggs hidden by the development team in all parts of the world, players can feel those carefully thought-out stories in this strange doomsday world.
Hongxia Island is an open-world first-person cooperative shooting game, developed by Arkane Austin, the award-winning team that created Predation and Shame. "Hongxia Island" still brings Arkane’s well-crafted game world and immersive simulation game experience, bringing the studio’s signature gameplay to this plot-led action shooting game.
The game stage of "Hongxia Island" is an island town in Massachusetts. It was created by mistakes in scientific experiments, and the blood clan of Hongxia Island, who was born with psychic ability, blocked the sun and cut off the island from the outside world. Players and a few survivors are trapped on this island, and players need to face the evil vampire enemies who are trying to drain the town. You will be able to choose all kinds of heroes-each hero has the unique skills of the role to defeat the Blood Legion and their fanatical followers.
"Hongxia Island" perfectly combines single-player and multiplayer game options, supporting players to fight alone in the dark world, or to take risks in teams of up to four people. Teammates can try different hero configurations and combine their respective advantages to find innovative solutions to the blood clan catastrophe. You will collect a large number of special weapons and customize your characters with unique upgrades and skills to play a game style that suits you-whether it is a fierce gunfight, a stealth battle, or any other style that mixes the two.
Son of the forest
Players who like open-world survival games are certainly familiar with Forest. Of course, The Forest released in 2014 is an antique game. The sequel to the game "Son of the Forest" is also eagerly awaited by many players. Unfortunately, since its release in 2019, "Son of the Forest" has been bounced several times.
Now, after years of waiting, Son of the Forest has also announced that it will be released in February 2023, and the long-awaited players can finally continue their survival adventure.

At the same time, on this isolated island, players need to fight against all kinds of mutant creatures. Some look just like human beings, while others are not from the mortal world. You need to bring pistols, axes, electric batons and other weapons to protect yourself and the people you care about.

In the trailer, Santiago, the game character played by Vin Diesel, took his daughter and took an adventure on the brand-new Alat planet (Arat).

Royalty and Freedom
For South Korea’s Ncsoft, domestic players are certainly no strangers. Although the glory of Ncsoft has disappeared in recent years, many new games will still be launched every year. Of course, Ncsoft will not give up trying to open the world. The previously released "Royalty and Freedom" has attracted the attention of many players.
The game "kingship and freedom" was originally named "Project TL". At first, Project TL was speculated by industry insiders and players as a next-generation IP game, and even guessed that the game name should be The Lineage.
But then, in February of this year, Ncsoft officially stated that the full name of Project TL was Royalty and Freedom, not The Lineage, and declared that Royalty and Freedom was not an IP work of Paradise, but a brand-new IP work.
According to the current public news, the professional system of "Kings and Freedoms" may be more like "Sword Spirit 2", and the professional system of players will be different according to the weapons used in their hands, and players can switch careers at any time by switching weapons in battle. In addition, the combat system in the game organically combines the map with the environment and the player. For example, the magic of lightning series becomes a range attack on rainy days. Therefore, from the copy to PVP, players need to constantly change their strategies.
Chronicle of Asda
As the first cooperation project between Netstone and Dragon Studio, The Chronicle of Asda will have a world view associated with the TV series The Chronicle of Asda. It is an MMORPG with various exploration elements such as changing clothes and eating according to day and night, weather and climate, and exploring new areas by building bridges with players.
At the same time, the Chronicle of Asda also has the action realized by various occupations, the team copy that needs strategy, and the political content among the three major forces.
It is reported that Netstone and Dragon Studio jointly hatched the IP of Asda Chronicle. Among them, Dragon Studio produced a TV series with the same name with related IP, while Netstone produced MMORPG with the same name with related IP. From the second season of Asda Chronicle, Netstone participated in the development of IP together with Fang Long Studio, the producer of TV series, and developed games based on an expanded world view together with the writers of TV series.
"Asda Chronicle" plans to launch a mobile game and PC platform in 2023 together with the second season of the TV series "Asda Chronicle".
The Battle of Plasia
The Battle of Prasia is a multi-platform (PC/ mobile game) large MMORPG developed by NEXON. In the Battle of Plasia, all players occupy camps or strongholds in "associations" (similar to guilds). However, there are dozens of strongholds in the Battle of Prasia with the same server, single channel and seamless map, and players can launch fierce battles for the purpose of occupying strongholds.
If the player leaves the stronghold occupied by the association, the war will start, and there is no time limit. Even in the space of buying and selling potions, there will be battles, and players can experience the war system with high freedom in the game. After the war breaks out, there will be a totem, the patron saint of "association", and the guardian and the attacker need to launch various strategies for victory.
"The Battle of Prasia" will be registered in advance on February 16th, and it is expected that Hanbok will be released in the first quarter.

Blue Sea black sails
Ubisoft’s old players will definitely be familiar with Blue Sea black sails, a lifetime game. As early as 2018, Ubisoft released the game "Blue Sea black sails" and announced that it would be released in 2019. Then the game began to skip tickets, and even the online transmission project was cancelled.
I can’t remember the number of jumps in this game. This is not on January 29, 2023, and it was announced that the jump ticket will be launched in the next fiscal year (April this year-March next year).
Blue Sea black sails is a new game based on the naval battle of Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag. It is a pirate MMORPG game led by Singapore Studio and assisted by Chengdu Studio and German Studio. The game is set in the second golden age of pirates, and the player will be the captain to drive his own pirate ship. Accept contracts, collect resources, sail on the high seas and attack merchant ships to plunder property.

In terms of additional challenges, players can enable PVP and try to challenge various leaders, powerful organizations, local forces and even hostile pirates in the game.
The same choice will affect the player’s journey, and the rise of pirate level will unlock new customization for the ship. There are many factions, pirate dens and hidden treasures in Blue Sea black sails for players to explore. When this work is launched, it will include 12 unique ships in 3 categories, and in the future, free activities, ships and weapons will be launched one after another.
