10 Biggest Open-Worlds In Video Game History

9. Dragon Age: Inquisition - 45mi2

There are no exact measurements for the Dragon Age: Inquisition map available right now, but its approximate size can be worked out by the fact that all of Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2 would fit into one of its massive zones - of which there are around 15. When joined together, these zones combine to feel slightly bigger than the 39mi2 Skyrim map, and should take many months to explore fully. Ferelden is a much more diverse world too, spanning stormy coastlines, murky swamplands, idyllic rolling hills as well as barren desert landscapes. Some people may complain about the lack of spontaneity and random events, and the distinctly 'zoned' feel of the world, which is made of many seemingly unconnected hubs accessed by a large map in the war room. But despite these complaints, the diversity of landscapes in the world captures the feeling that you're exploring an entire continent, which is the developers' intention.
