Hopefully the landmass alone is 49 square miles, because if you subtract interiors and underwater areas the landmass isn't that big

Sucked out of the thumb.

Thinking he would get more visitors to his site after everyone shared the site's bullsh*t.

It looks like it's 49 square miles INCLUDING ocean and possibly interiors

 

So the landmass is quite a lot smaller than 49 square miles

I think they are refering to land mass alone. Even if its 30 square miles I believe that would be the same as Just Cause 2
EDIT: Sorry for being horriblely wrong people.

...What? Are you referring to the OP?

 

The Scotsman link he supplied is a big Scottish newspaper, not some fan site he created.

I was intrigued about how big 49 square miles would be and how to visualize it, so i plotted roughly 49 miles by 49 miles and its bigger than i thought. I then plotted a route from the west to the east side of this area to see how long it would take to drive and to walk. Bare in mind it is only a rough idea because google maps doesnt account for driving off road lol.

Driving would take between 1 hour and 7 minutes to 1 hour and 23 minutes. If you look at the picture it says 60 miles but bare in mind it isnt a straight route from a to b, the winding about (if you stick to the roads) adds a few more miles.

Some people mentioned walking it, so i checked that too. Between 18 hours and 33 minutes to 18 hours and 54 minutes, f#ck that! Not sure that it would actually take that long but if you bare in mind its calculated on WALKING and not running, i dunno, maybe. I certainly wont be doing it anyway!

I sent a tweet to the guy who wrote the article and this was the reply



 

@Pizentu R*'s own info, showing scale of map compared to previous titles. It may well be larger than 49 sq m but that's the min.

Just Cause 2's world is about 400 square miles wide, and GTAV's 49 square miles. GTAV's map is only 12,5% of the whole Just Cause 2 map, But it's all about scale after all.

We all knew this from ages ago. Check out the fact sheet at http://www.gtav.net/facts/ or use the search bar on GTAV.net. Also, GTA V's map is going to be BIGGER than GTA IV, SA and RDR combined. There is no exact number known yet.

But JC2's Map was very dull with a lot of repeats and not much to do while GTA will by packed with unique stuff and fun side activities
