Get a look at just how large the Mafia 3 really is. Youtuber TheyCallMeConor takes us on a relaxing on a relaxing trek across the entire map of Mafia 3 on foot in his Across the Map video series.
In this episode, Conor walks the entirety of New Bordeaux from north to south on foot. Clocking in at 1:23 Mafia 3’s map took slightly less time to walk than GTA San Andreas and Red Dead Redemption.
There’s something surprisingly relaxing meditative about these virtual hikes that makes you appreciate the scale of an AAA open-world game without distractions of gunfights and car chases.
If you’re curious which game currently holds the record for biggest map still goes to No Mans Sky. Clocking in at 12 hours, Conor was only able to cover half a planet on foot. Just Cause 3 and Arma Altis hold the second and third positions for the biggest map. Be sure to check out more Across the Map episodes and see the biggest game worlds walked.
