Fuel’s Environment Size Receives World Record Award
When most think of an open-world game, many think of the Grand Theft Auto series and for good reason. When GTA IV was released last year and gamers flew with the helicopter for the first time, most were astonished with the size of Liberty City. Some have suggested the estimated size of GTA IV’s map is about 10.5 square miles.
While GTA IV was big, it’s nothing when compared to Codemasters‘ FUEL. The studio is claiming that their open-world post-apocalyptic racer will be about 5,560 square miles or roughly the same size as the state of Connecticut. In fact, the game is even larger than three states in the US alone.
Thanks to the size, Asobo Studios sent out a press release that said; FUEL is taking home a certificate from the Guinness World Records as the largest environment that is fully playable. I guess kudos to Codemasters.
