Ever wondered how much land and water one can cover in Nintendo’s the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? Now you can thanks to a new image showing the entire map. The next installment in the Zelda series of games is set to come out on March 3rd for the Nintendo Switch and Wii U.
In open world games I’ve always liked spacious maps that are filled with stuff, not empty stuff, but stuff that means something and keeps players coming back to the game to discover more. Unfortunately that’s not always the case for every open world game, which strikes the question “how big is the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild world map?” According to publication site GameRant you will have a better ideal as to how big the map will be before the game releases to the public to consume.
According to the publication site there is no map with a World Legend (you know like icons and graphs), which is quite a shame, because World Legends do help with measuring and pinpointing certain locations and special things. Instead we learn how big the map is through a grid of cubes.
In addition to the above, the site notes that out of 120 grid squares in the game only 80 full squares are accessible for players to discover. The site notes that the map size was confirmed (the 120 grid size) by the developers, so take 80 full squares out of 120 however you want.
Here’s the full world map for the action adventure game, as seen below.
I know a lot of people say that Breath of the Wild’s map diversity brings a large amount of resource, location, enemy and climate changes, but one of the many questions I have for this game is how well constructed is the overall game, and is it good enough for people to care and to keep playing? I guess we’ll find out soon when the game launches on March 3rd.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be for the Wii U and the latest Nintendo console the Switch.
