Video Games are meant to immerse players into different worlds, giving them stories that make them forget about the everyday problems they have to go through. Some of these maps are sometimes so big that it could take years to discover everything.
Here are the five biggest video game maps ever made.
The Biggest Video Game Maps of All Time
So many video game maps have surprised gamers all around with how big their maps end up being. The fact that we are able to create entire worlds for others to explore is nothing short of amazing.
Some of these maps have exceeded any and every expectation. So which maps are considered the largest?
5. The Elder Scrolls II: Daggerfall (1996)
63,000 sq. miles
Due to The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim’s MASSIVE popularity, many have played at least one title within the Elder Scrolls franchise. But did you know that one of the earlier games was bigger than every other Elder Scrolls game ever made? The map has over 15,000 towns, making it one of the biggest video game maps of all time.
A game often overlooked for size is Microsoft Flight Simulator, but the title LITERALLY is the size of the actual Earth. The game is so realistic that it covers every piece of land and every ounce of sea that our world is made up of. What’s even crazier, is the fact that this is NOT even the biggest video game map out there.
Everyone has heard of Minecraft, but what they probably don’t know is the fact that the game is literally 8 times the size of Earth. The massive sandbox-style game allows players to utilize their own creativity, building out maps from across each corner of the game. Minecraft holds the title as not only one of the largest video game maps but also one of the most popular video games of all time.
2. Elite Dangerous (2016)
400 billion star systems
The actual square miles of the popular space flight simulator-style game is unknown, but the game has LITERALLY 400 billion star systems for people to explore. Does this seem ludicrously large to you? Well, that’s because it is. Elite Dangerous has so much to explore, that you will never be able to explore the entire map in ONE lifetime.
1. No Man’s Sky (2016)
Much like Elite Dangerous, the popular No Man’s Sky has billions of star systems for players to venture to. The only difference is that No Man’s Sky is believed to have over 1 quintillion star systems. The game would literally take over 500 billion years to explore every nook and cranny of it. Not only is that fact absurd, but it also is crazy that we have developed technology that allows a game to become that massive.
