Both image are not made by me.
The first one is obtained by the map layout in the achievement picture, while the second one was made by user of GTAForums in the past weeks/months.
The size is exactly the same. Do you feel better now?

Agreed. Also, how can people keep saying it's small?

This is big no doubt, and I'm fine with it. But yeah GTA IV, San Andreas and RDR definitely can't fit in this with room to spare lol. Like I've said before, I think they used a technicality on that. Like latitude, and surface areas on buildings. Because, as far as square miles go.... Not even close to what they claim, ridiculous.

My guess is that it's scaled bigger, so it may seem small looking at a map, but in actuallity it's much bigger. I mean RDR looked big, but it wasn't as big as it seemed. My point is RDR was supposed to cover multiple territories/countries so everything was scrunched together, GTA V will be less fictional land but scaled to be bigger.

Just my theory.

Unless the maps and games are scaled differently. I may be dead wrong though.

I am also asking myself where the hell North Yankton could be... I couldn't see a snow location near the ocean, so where is it?

I'm beginning to wonder if R* meant all the past maps could fit inside this map not in an edge-to-edge manner, but in a stacked formation, like nesting dolls.

I thought that but it wouldnt make sense as you would only need to reference the largest map out of the three.

That may be, but from a marketing standpoint, it'd make more sense to say combine, because technically, if stacked like that, it still IS combining them.

square miles of travel-able ground is bigger than the raw map area since we have mountains -- does R*'s figure include water, since it's explorable too?

at any rate, it will be BIG and i got no complaints. take all hype & marketing statements with a grain of salt; they're obviously going to make it sound as huge and cool as possible - they're trying to sell the game to the public. it def. looks bigger than Liberty City although the "urban area" of Los Santos alone looks a little smaller. hard to say without scale. anyone have a side-by side compare of IV and V in the same scale?

Gotta love the cry babies that insist its not big enough, I wonder when having the "biggest map" became the most important thing in gaming. Its a huge map filled with endless things to do and also has an interactive sea around it.. what is it you folks want.. an empty map extended another 100 miles so you can drive in some boring ass straight line for 2 hours with nothing to do? Its bizarre. icon13.gif icon14.gif

Rock star: "Just how big is this world? Art director Aaron Garbut crunched the math. When you include interior and exterior spaces together, Los Santos is bigger than the worlds of Red Dead Redemption, San Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV combined, with room to spare." That means its the inside of buildings and houses and other property as well as the explorable under water. Which we don't know how big that is and as well as other things. So put that all together so that is huge. I think you guys need to understand when they talk about it and really pay attention. Plus you never played the game so you never it could be bigger when you play it. biggrin.gif

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!
BUT...There's still a possibility of that achievement being awarded to you for exploring that particular island ONLY.
And R* said that the Blueprint map is double-sided.
We've only seen the first half.
