Anyone know how big SoTCs map size is compared to that of modern RPGS? (Skyrim, Witcher etc.) It felt huge but I imagine a lot of that was just due to how novel it was at the time.
It's significantly larger than Skyrim but TW3 is probably bigger and absolutely more detailed.
It's extremely small, the certain paths you have to take to reach certain areas give it the illusion of being bigger than it is.
Not like that's a bad thing, though. It was fucking empty on purpose, if it was massive it would've been a chore to ride to each Colossus. It was the perfect size for the purpose it served.
It's significantly larger than Skyrim dude, you can see one end of Skyrim from the other. In SOTC that isn't even close to being possible.
SOTC is also far more vertical.
To give you some perspective, the center tower that you can climb takes up more sqare feet than all of the Skyrim cities combined.
The paths are larger than the paths in Skyrim.
The open areas are larger than the open areas in Skyrim.
The colossus arenas are bigger than the open areas in Skyrim.
No it's not. it's entanglement creates the illusion of scale that's all.
Like i said. about 5 mins in a straight line can get you anywhere.
I understand you like the game but sotc is smaller than a bunch of open world games. Smaller than Skyrim, RDR, GTA and such.
For the better of it.
