Game area GTA IV in Google Maps

04/20/2007 —

Games Radar gebruikt google maps om aan te tonen hoe groot het gebied is waarin je vrij kan rondlopen in de nieuwe GTA game: GTA IV. Omdat er gezegd was dat er maar 1 stad gebruikt zou worden waren veel gamers bang voor een ‘klein’ game-gebied, maar Games Radar bewijst dat die wel meevalt: GTA IV in Google Maps

Liberty City will be a lot bigger than you think: here’s proof! – First we used Google Maps editing kit and dropped in all the known locations that have been seen in the trailer. Then we added the Liberty City/NYC boroughs revealed by the Game Informer preview. Finally we drew a boundary around certain geographical locations that we can imagine serving as useful boundary points in the game – sea, major roads and the JFK airport for example.

The results are pretty surprising. The area the map could potentially cover is huge. Bron: Games Radar.

Mooi gebruik gemaakt van Google maps om nu al een idee te krijgen van GTA IV!
