Kotaku I’ve spent a lot of time in the sprawling open world of Xenoblade Chronicles X, doing quests and just exploring. And given how much time I’ve spent running, that got me to wondering just how large the main continent was.
That was a great video, cant wait to play this.
when is this gonna be localized? WiiU is in dire need for retail titles, its sales been abysmal in latest weeks.
just stop. Nobody believes your lies. We get it. you hate Nintendo.
And it takes over an hour to run across GTA5's open world..... Same with Oblivion and Skyrim. Xenoblade is not really impressive.
@blu Compared to XCX, in those other games, you run at the speed of an exhausted cripple. I should know: I own and love Skyrim. But it's already been proven that XCX's world is bigger, and the only reason he did it so fast in XCX is because he can run faster, he wasn't able to access the stretches of land over some cliffs while on foot which somewhat shortened the end goal area he could set, he took the shortest route and could jump far higher, and he didn't include going to the other two continents which means the whole world isn't accounted for. Try again once you can do a logical analysis.
I another thread it states he actually took 30 minutes and it was only one of the continents.
BLuTheSecond. They run slower. GTAV is like 30 or so Square miles. R* claims 50 but it's not. Skyrim LOL please. That game is tiny. 15 Square Miles. Xenoblade was 30 on Wii! Xenoblade X on Wii U is a confirmed 150 Square miles. 5x the size of XB. Witcher 3 is 136. Top it off you can explore XCX world vertically as much as you can on the ground. So it's double the size that way. You can run pretty much every cliff even steep angles. No fall damage and fly in mechs to discover tops of cliffs or inside volcano's.
cant wait for this game. xenoblade is possibly my fav game... ever. https://www.youtube.com/wat... my remix of the mechonis field theme from xenoblade :)
Your Wii U is out there pcz.. ..waiting :)
wow.. that's a pretty big world.
I wish I could see it, but Kotaku is apparently dead.
If only the same could be said for polygon. On topic: I wonder how big this is in comparison to the witcher wild hunt?
I also wanna know how the landmasses compare to each other.
all I know is 32 mins to cross the world is similar to DayZ in size http://www.dayztv.com/map/c...
Well he only ran through 3 areas not all five of them so it might actually take like 45 minutes to run it all.
It would take way longer than 45 minutes, you forget that he would have to run through Oblivia, then partway through Primordia and into Sylvalum, into and through all of Cauldros, back through Cauldros and Sylvalum to Primordia, and lastly through Primordia to the end of Noctilum. At that speed the round trip from to Culdros and back would add at least another twenty minutes the overall time. Realistically you're probably looking at an hour minimum for that whole trip.
Piff...smaller then I thought. http://www.vg247.com/2015/0...
so you're comparing walking to running ...... right got ya lol
lol yes, I know. Just doing some obvious trolling. I was looking for one with the fastest car but could only find a walking one lol. Just 32 minutes, I see me getting bored at the bland landscape fast then. I mean...after 1 session of playing, I would have seen everything. Not really that exciting if you ask me. =)
The running speed is pretty fast in XBX, plus he took the quickest route.
Man, this is as awesome as I hoped, then. Can't wait!
Looking forward to this games! If it turns out half as goos as Xenoblade, I will be satisfied.
Considering the running speed and the fact that he took the shortest route possible, it's actually kinda scary that it took that long... I wonder how long it would take if he did an end to end tour of all 5 continents in succession...
Well people will compare walking speed in some game to a constant sprint in Xenoblade X which is speed comparable or higher than Usain Bolts top sprint speed.
I dunno what Usain Bolts is, but I can't think of any games where the walking speed is comparable to the full out sprinting speed in XCX.XD
Probably something like an hour and a half, no less than an hour.
i would never buy another Wiiu but this game certainly looks incredible
Another Wii U? As in more than one?
I remember Daggerfall took 8 real days to run across...
Unfair comparison really since that game was procedurally generated, although still impressive. Also, have you seen the sprinting speed in this game?
Cool! I actually think Xenoblade Chronicles might be even bigger than Skyrim. It's just that Skyrims world is all available to the player from the beginning and in Xenoblades the player must progressed through the story to unlock the rest. Either way I'm eagerly awaiting for this game!
Xenoblade on Wii is double Skyrim. 30 Square miles compared to 15. XCX is confirmed 5X that at 400 Square KM or 150 Square miles.
Can't wait for this GOTY
It wasn't even a near straight line it was curved to add more time
