Grand Theft Auto V is undoubtedly the most anticipated game this year among the gaming community. In that regard, if you want to maintain your ignorance going into Los Santos look away now.
Okay, now we can proceed. Below is the leaked map of GTA V’s fictionalized Los Angeles sprawl, Los Santos; it leaked earlier today and is making headlines for its apparent size.
Rockstar has discussed the games map size in the past, most notably during an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine in which “…3.5 times the size of that seen in Red Dead Redemption” and “…bigger than its western masterpiece, San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto 4 combined” were mentioned.
However, seeing it for the first time is a sight to behold. Take a gander at the games splendid map and just think how many hours you will spend toiling around Los Santos.
And for comparison, from RockstarGTAV:
A lot of you are talking about how small the map is. Look at this to see how big it actually is! http://t.co/qQ3sGBd9Km
