"Bigger than ... maps combined."

Rockstar says the map is 3.5 times bigger than Red Dead Redemption -- 5 times bigger if you include topography, as representatives kept talking about be depths of the ocean.

So it was RDR, not GTAIV. But yeah, that's what's up.

I believe its a combination of rdr, and gta four if so this may give us an idea, but the streets look too broad in sa and the map looks shrunken in LC

and this was said on another site:
"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."

Now that is BIG!

Based on how they don't say how big the map is and only how big the game is INCLUDING INTERIORS, it's most likely an indication that the map is not as big as most people are expecting.


What do you mean? What is the difference between "map size" and "game size"?
