The Emirates Stadium in Holloway, London was opened eight years ago. It's England's third largest stadium and home to the Arsenal Football Club. And now, it's also the subject of an awesome CryEngine map.
The man behind the project is a Turkish environment artist by the name of Gökhan Karadayi, who's currently working with TaleWorlds on the next Mount & Blade game. He first posted about the stadium on the Polycount Forum in March, and he did so again yesterday to update the thread with the now-finished map.
The guy used CryEngine 3 to recreate the stadium, and he did a pretty good job. This is what the place looks like in real life:
And here's Karadayi's version:
