    How Big Is Chicago In Watch Dogs?

    How big do you guys think Chicago is in Watch Dogs? I've already tried looking on Google and YouTube, couldn't find anything.

    Why Ubisoft picked Chicago as the setting of WD - http://blog.ubi.com/watch-dogs-chica...-surveillance/

    I'm gonna take a stab in the dark here, but I'm guessing it will be maybe as large or a bit larger than AC3's frontier, square footage wise. But there's no way to know for sure.

    Im guessing it will be as big as Rome in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood; Rome is the top 16th biggest game world of all time!

    That list is painfully wrong, Rome is about 1mi x 1mi, it's tiny. You have to remember we are on foot and the horses are very slow, it makes the world appear big.

    wtf. Arkham City is one of the smallest open-world games, but it has a ton of detail.

    That list is completely wrong if it says that Arkham City is larger that GTA 4.

    A lot larger, the frontier is tiny compared to most maps. AC's maps feel big because we are on foot. GTA 4's map which is a relatively small map is 5x the size of the frontier. I'm thinking Watch_Dogs will have a map similar to the size of LA Noire's.

    We know that the bridge that you see in the honored trailer is roughly 15 km from the city center. To find mountains near Chicago you need to travel to the mississippi river area. It is however not certain how realistic the map of virtual Chicago is with regard to the real Chicago. Hopefully we know more after the next episode.
