Comparing the map size in The Division to GTA 5 and Fallout 4

The Division has left some good impressions on the gaming community so far. But there’s been one criticism that everyone seems to bash the game with: its map is too small.

However, a recent analysis shows that the map in The Division is quite large — and compares quite well to the main city of GTA 5 and the entire map in Fallout 4.

On top of that, the map in The Division has a lot more going on — you can enter buildings, you can go underground etc. while GTA 5 for example, is mainly exterior buildings.

One of the reasons The Division gets criticism for its map size might be that it’s only using a portion of the island of Manhattan, instead of the whole thing.

But for a game with no vehicles, an entire Manhattan would be way too large.
