I just saw AngryJoe playing it and the game looked absolutely huge!

Its gonna be amazing to traverse those locations and explore the secrets of this beauty.

Meh, 1.5x GTA and only .5 of ARMA 3. Doesn't seem that massive to me but that isn't gonna stop it from being awesome.

1.5x of GTAV is huge. Just think, GTAV's map may not feel that large because you are traveling at speeds of 80+ in vehicles while traveling. If you walked it or took a moped, it's huge! On horseback or foot, The Witcher 3 will be gihugic! We both do agree though, it's going to be awesome! :)

Thanks for the tip, I've never seen any of Gopher's videos and this one was very good. I really love how the wind affects the trees, bushes and grass, makes the game world look very convincing.

Anyone who wants to see more Witcher 3 check out the Gamespot videos with Danny O'Dwyer, they are excellent, here is part 1 of 3

GTA V map can be traversed north to south in 10 mins... a 400mph

This is huge and i think that xbskull needs to quit. I have to say that when you drop your self off in the middle of a desert ot woods after a jump in GTA, you realize that the world is huge when it takes 30 mins to run to the nearest highway.

@NukaCola i disagree with xbskull and think he's a troll but 30 minutes??? 10 minutes with jet?? Just checked, and it takes barely 3 minutes from south to north with a jet. ANd there is no space on the map you need 30 minutes to a highway by foot, even 10 minutes would be a stretch.

I was on the fence, but the more I see, the more impressive & gorgeous this game looks, very detailed (walking thru those villages, its like I wanna look out for cow poo ;P)

I wonder how the guys @NeoGaf came by 136 sq km? Plus I thought I heard GTA V was 100 sq miles, significantly bigger than 81 sq km (unless they mean just the city of Los Santos)

The Witcher 3 map size = GTA V + Skyrim + RDR combined!!!!



Kingdomcome2471242d ago

That just seems unreal. I'll be collecting retirement by the time I've seen everything this world has to offer.

xTheMercenary_1242d ago (Edited 1242d ago )

I dont think you interpreted the article properly. Its 1.5x bigger than gta 3.3 times bigger than RDR and 3.5 times bigger than skyrim. It isnt as big as all three put together. But it is still a humungous map to explore nonetheless, it'll feel way bigger than gta v only because you have a horse and you run you arent going 250mph in a car.

ArchangelMike1242d ago


You should check out the original NeoGaf link in the article. It is ONLY the main map area that is 136KMsq. There are 4-6 other areas as well. If each of those areas is small at even 30kmsq then you have 136+(30x4)=256kmsq.

So yeah, as was said, bigger than GTA V + Skyrim + RDR combined = HUuuuGE!

TheSaint1242d ago

As the choir boy said to the priest, that's huge!

UNKLE1242d ago

JoeMcCallister1241d ago
