Map Size Comparison Through Different Pictures.

I'm not sure if this has been posted, if it has I'm sure it will be new to some people. It gives a good idea on the approximate size of the city.

Idk, the part where you see the blueprint map and the character switching screenshots overlayed on it makes it look ridiculously small. Same goes for the cul-de-sac and highways with the colored lines overlayed.

 

I know the countryside makes the map huge by comparison to past games, but I can't help but feel like the city itself is going to be much smaller than the map from GTA 4.

I agree. The more evidence I see, the more I'm convinced the map is smaller than I hoped for. The really disappointing thing is how few roads there are in Los Santos. I'm sure the city will be fun and interesting but it is by no means "big". Especially by modern video game standards.

lol @ people saying the city of Los Santos itself was going to be bigger than the entire map of RDR.

 

It's not even going to cover as much area as the northern border of RDR tbh.

I said Los Santos is going to be a lot smaller than GTA 4's map. And I get the feeling this is 100% truth.

Los Santos is only SLIGHTLY smaller then the whole GTAIV map! I'm not sure where you got this "A LOT SMALLER" bull from!...

How's about, who said anything about RDR like I f*cking pointed out?

Until you opened your f*cking mouth, NOBODY said anything about red dead.

In fact, your post is the first time you even find RDR in the f*cking thread.

 

Now get the f*ck out.

 

 

 

Also as for my implication that Los Santos will be "A LOT SMALLER" than GTA IV's map, here's my reasoning: GTA 4 is just one big ass city. But it's not even THAT big. Dan Houser said "Los Santos is about the same size as Liberty City in GTA IV." Do you see the marketing lingo here? Liberty city, as in not including Alderney. That's f*cking small as sh*t.

I've heard it's either slightly smaller or slightly bigger. Eh it's one of the two. Either way I don't mind because the entire map is bigger than any other GTA game so I can't complain.

No, and even if I did, i'd get banned, so I wouldn't tell you anyway.

 

But from what I've seen from trailers/gameplay clips and screens of the map, I can just already tell it was blown out of proportion.

 

I bet I could drive through Los Santos on a straight away and get from one side to the other in less than 60 seconds. You could never do that in any game that R* has EVER created. But it's looking like you're going to be able to do it in this one.

There've been threads that have discussed this very topic. It is generally assumed that Los Santos city proper is probably going to be about the same size as GTA IV's map (water not included), if not slightly larger. I don't know where one of the main threads for this topic is; however, people extrapolated on either the tennis court pic or highway widths and used that as a scale to predict the map size.

 

I'm not stating any facts here, I'm just pointing out that this video may very well underestimate the urban size. It seemed to me that the video was doing more eyeballing than anything else.

I sure am glad that there are so many f**king experts on this forum. Everyone knows what they are talking about. How about wait until the game drops on the 17th and then we will all find out how big or small LS is. Jesus people....

He never said anything about excluding Alderney, so thats an assumption out of your ass! Besides i find this kind of logic weird as hell! GTAIV is said to be set in Liberty City and Alderney is a part of Liberty City, no matter of what technically counts!

There have been many comparisons of size. The more reliable ones (where the people who made them actually indicated their scale) show Los Santos to be approximately the same size as the entirety of Liberty City (yes, including Alderney; don't be pedantic about terminology to try and justify your position) when you remove water from the equation. Some show that the outlying areas of Los Santos, like the outer suburbs and docks, lie slightly outside the Liberty City area.

I've actually gone and timed myself driving and flying through Liberty City and San Andreas, which you can find in the "Road Trip" topic as was updated just yesterday. It takes about 4 minutes and 37 seconds to drive a Schafter from one corner of Liberty City to the opposite corner and 5 minutes and 54 seconds to go from a corner of San Andreas to the opposite corner on a Sanchez. It takes 1 minute and 5 seconds through flight to cross Liberty City on the same route and I think it was 1 minute and 37 seconds in San Andreas. I should emphasize as well that I was slowed down by San Andreas lacking GPS to give me an efficient route, and my Sanchez was far slower than the GTA IV Schafter.

 

If it took less than 60 seconds to go straight through Los Santos, it would be smaller than any city in GTA San Andreas.

I like this video, it shows the scale of the map, and helps the "worried" people out there and proves and how big it actually is.

I now know just how retarded most of my fellow forum patrons are. GTA V small? 60 seconds to cross the city? Go play your precious San Andreas and let us enjoy V.

No, people who say that just eyeball the map and they just don't seem to understand that is a terribly way to determine size. "Someone's feeling" about the size of a map is almost always wrong.
