Turns out there’s a very good reason Just Cause 3 is full of cars and planes and choppers and grappling hooks and parachutes: its map is enormous.
Reader Conor—who suffers through this kind of thing for your enjoyment—plotted the farthest distance across land in Just Cause 3’s map and started strolling (and occasionally swimming).
It took him an astonishing 8 hours, 40 minutes to do it. For reference, it took him 56 minutes to traverse Fallout 4, and under five hours to get across five Grand Theft Auto games. I know movement speed and player size are important factors in that beyond just raw map size, but still, eight hours. Man.
