Although Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain is easily one of the most anticipated games of the year, we have stopped taking anything regarding the game for granted, especially since Ground Zeroes didn't really live up to the expectations we were harbouring. However, it seems like things could drastically change for The Phantom Pain.
Not long ago, it was reported that the upcoming game's North Kabul map had been leaked online. The leak showed the entire map of the North Kabul area in Afghanistan, with several starting points for the player to choose from. Now, it seems like a skilled Redditor has calculated the size of the map and compared it to the one that was found in Ground Zeroes.
As far as the comparison is concerned, it seems like the map could be roughly 60 times bigger than that of Ground Zeroes. Sure, this is not an official number released by the company, but it does give us a decent idea about the overall scale of The Phantom Pain.
However, the latest revelation only involves just one section of Afghanistan's map (that we are talking about here), and there are no details as to how big the maps will be for those of Africa and Cyprus.
Nonetheless, it is expected that the game will release with more locations than the aforementioned ones in the report. And anyway, the game is said to be around 200-300 times bigger than Ground Zeroes.
Stay tuned for more updates!
