The world of Xenoblade Chronicles X is big, really big! We’ve known that for a while now, but some people got curious exactly how big the world of Xenoblade Chronicles X was, so they did some comparisons. They did a video comparison of a Nord running across Skyrim and a Skell running across Mira.
Even though the Skell is much faster than a Nord in heavy armor, they still manage to make the trip across Skyrim much faster than across Mira. Looking at some exact numbers, Skyrim is about 37 km2 (14 mi2); compare this to Mira, which is about 400 km (154 sq mi). To put that in context, the city of San Fransisco could fit into Mira four times.
Of course, they didn’t stop at comparing Xenoblade to Skyrim, they compared to some current gen open world games as well. According to the video, the world of Xenoblade Chronicles X is approximately five times the size of the world of Fallout 4 and three times the size of the Witcher 3.
That’s pretty damn impressive. I’m looking forward to exploring Xenoblade Chronicles X’s massive world on December 4th. How about you all? Does this get you excited for the game? Be sure to let us know in the comments.
