We understand if you want to wait to play Cyberpunk 2077, but hopefully, many of these titles above can help you fill in the time between now and when you can finally play it. Fallout 76 (opens in new tab) takes the top spot in this article with its almost on-par gameplay with Cyberpunk 2077, along with the impressive continued support and additional content added since launch.

If you're not much of a Fallout fan, The Outer Worlds (opens in new tab) is another title that will tide you over for a good length of time while also providing a wonderful open-world sci-fi experience. If you are really looking for a cyberpunk-styled game, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided (opens in new tab) is essential. Ghostrunner is another Cyberpunk title that will put your reflexes to the test if something challenging is more of your taste.
