Not so small after all?

Recently, Cyberpunk 2077 Deluxe Edition revealed what appears to be the full map of Night City. Some players were disappointed by its size but the latest comparison sheds more light at a true scale of the game's open world.

Earlier this week, CD Projekt Red and Dark Horse Comics announced a partnership and a brand new edition of Cyberpunk 2077, which will essentially serve as a Deluxe Edition for the game. Players noticed that a guide book's cover featured a full map of Night City, which to many, was looking a bit smaller than expected.

However, the latest comparison shows that Night City's size is pretty impressive and you can bet it will be a place where you'll spend hundreds of hours and still, miss a lot of locations and details. 

Redditor DogofWars posted a side by side images that show the map of one small part of Night City and the full map from the book's cover. It's safe to say that Night City's scale looks absolutely massive once you've put it this way.

And to be fair, the concerns were a bit pre-mature in the first place. CD Projekt Red did say that Cyberpunk 2077's world will be smaller than The Witcher 3's in terms of sheer size but there's a lot more verticality to it, more details and events that make the world feel much more dense, alive and immersive.

Also, there will be some other areas that players will get to explore, outside of Night City. Badlands is just one of them and it wouldn't surprise us if CD Projekt Red had a couple of more tricks up in their sleeve.

Anyway, you can take a look at the full-size image here , and visit the Reddit thread for the original post .

Cyberpunk 2077 is hitting the shelves on 16 April 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. For more news about the game, check out the latest on CD Projekt Red's monetisation plans .
