Not only does the Map look good but the whole UI.
Makes everything look much cleaner, though I've been playing gta since gta 3 and the old UI sort of will be missed. Sort of, ok not really.

Is it me, or does it seem kind of small, in terms of the city size and the amount of roads.

I love the open space north of the city though. That is where a lot of the fun will happen.
SolidStoner  +   698d ago
After everything I saw in trailers I expected size to be bigger.. city is taking almost half of the map... I was aiming to see more lakes, mountains, deserts and very long roads...

maybe this map dosnt show all roads, only big ones.. thats why map looks smaller..

it still looks great... especially after GTA4 non stop city :)

It is big. Not every road is displayed on this map. Just the main one. This mao is supposed to be SA RDR and GTAIV put together. It looks massive.

Yea it looks awesome, I'm just hoping there is more to it I'm not seeing or something.

We don't even know how legit this even is.

Don't forget the "fan made" part of the article.
bigrob904  +   697d ago
same thing i thought, but the way the designers make it sound is that it's gonna be much bigger. i'll have to see for myself when i get the game.

The devs said that the whole game will have the "area volume" would be bigger than RDR & GTA4 combined. This includes indoor and the underwater sections. Considering the sea is practically as big as San Andreas, that actually tallies up the volume.
RE_L_MAYER  +   698d ago
well if you put it that way,the sea area I understand but that much indoor stuff?
DigitalAnalog  +   697d ago
Well, knowing the game would have "heists". I would figure these buildings would have 3 - 5 floors worth of surface area, so that actually counts as well. Not to mention the houses you will buy, the gyms, the fast food joins, the clubs, bowling alleys, etc.

Where are you seeing the user interface..? I hope you don't mean the map model they uploaded on Sketchfab...

If this is truly it than I'm very dissapointed by the size. Looks extreamly small.
AJ Hartley  +   698d ago
This isnt all off it theres lots of land we havent seen like the deep rural areas and the apparent snowy areas.
AJ Hartley  +   698d ago
I think *
YodaCracker  +   698d ago
Across all the screens and trailers, just about every part of the map has in fact been seen. This fan made map is very accurate and if you look at the achievement image for exploring the whole map, you will see the outline of the world is identical to the fan map.

There may be many roads missing on this map, but the general layout of the land, the size of the city and countryside should be close to 100% accurate.

You can see the entire 1000+ page mapping thread on GTAForums here:


And I can understand some people may think the map looks small, but trust that when you are actually in this world at ground level, standing at the base of the massive Mt. Chiliad and looking out over the Alamo Sea to the Senora desert and beyond, you will realize just how gargantuan the map is.

im still waiting to see snow....where the hell is snow gonna be located at
steve30x  +   697d ago
@ YodaCracker : I highly doubt we are after seeing all of the map. Goi8ng by those maps its not much bigger than GTA Iv map. If Rockstar is right then the map will be a whole lot bigger than what you pointed to in the link. What we have seen so far is a fraction of the map.
AJ Hartley  +   697d ago
Well with the map being so long it could get near the Canadian border that's where the snow could be involved hense claiming the map being huge in size.
Adexus  +   698d ago
Wouldn't count on it, even the last fan map was larger than this one, Rockstar have said it's their biggest game yet in terms of map size, unfortunately they won't release the map since they want people to see it for themselves, only 2 weeks to go though!

P.S. Awesome avatar.
metalgod88  +   698d ago
Don't forget there's underwater exploration as well. I've heard this map is as big as all the other GTAs combined. There will also be the online portion of the game as well so don't worry! There's going to be tons of stuff to do :D

i hate all of YOU, i just want sept 17 to be today!! all this speculation is killing me!
buynit  +   698d ago
Am i the only one dissapointed with saints row 4 graphics?
Orionsangel  +   698d ago
No, it basically looks like Saints Row The Third. It was rushed. It's a shallow game to cash a quick buck.
buynit  +   698d ago
Talk about ruining the game.. Ill just wait for the gta's from now on, i cant get over how norroble the game sounds too!
bromtown  +   698d ago
I bet my left nut the actual map will look hardly anything like this. It's missing all the little towns in the wilderness and I think the scale of the city is way off, just from the size of the runways - if the runways take up that much space it wouldn't make GTA V much bigger than IV.
TheKingWilliamV  +   698d ago
Now I am beyond excited about GTA V but this map does nothing for me lol hell I am purchasing an Xbox 360 just for GTA V.
Orionsangel  +   698d ago
Why? It's on PS3 as well.
TheKingWilliamV  +   698d ago
Most of my friends are on Xbox 360, I have considered purchasing it on PS3 but for some reason i like playing with my current friends I wish I didn't lol but I do.
Cheese_rawl  +   698d ago
We are almost at the beggining of the next generation. Maybe you should borrow a console from someone.

FlyingFoxy  +   698d ago
Hope theres a lot of stuff online, when the PC ver comes we should be able to select how many players we want online.. if not it should be 64 minimum.

The map size has huge potential in multiplayer with a lot of players, i just hope we can at least get to do stuff as much as in SA-MP. A cops n robbers game mode for GTA V would be extremely fun with a map full of players.

Do everything that can be done in SA-MP, catch fish to sell, plant drug plants, rob/rape other players, have races, placing hits for hitmen to take someone out, cops chasing bad guys.. all goin on at the same time.. hopefully V wont be restricted and just as open as SA-MP.

I don't believe its bigger than san andreas and liberty city together-it just doesn't look big enough
Zancruz  +   697d ago
Nan, From what I can see that map don't look right... The Blue Print map that Rockstar looks bigger and roads are denser with more city, towns and suburbs sections just like GTA San Andreas was it will just more on a grander scale.

15 more days and we will all be amazed...
AiirJordann23  +   697d ago
this 3d map looks small compared to when you switch players in game, but its still pretty awesome, and it actually looks kinda like GTA San Andreas map.
josephayal  +   697d ago
nice map, i feel like a game dev
Blacklash93  +   697d ago
I REALLY want to be excited for GTAV, but after IV it's kind of hard. I found IV incredibly boring and disappointing. It's one thing to have a lot of content and it's another to make that content compelling.

That said, I do like everything that I'm seeing. It's just I find it hard to get hyped after I did the same for IV.

Lol gameranx... A low level website where Ian miles chong think is a "journalist by running his feminist and racist agenda.

I still wonder why his site is still posted here

Look at the video here :
