Grand Theft Auto might be the game many assume to have the biggest world, or perhaps Call of Duty. But this unlikely honour actually goes to the open-world shooter ArmA 3, out this month. Clocking in a ground surface area of some 270 square kilometres, ArmA 3’s main island (one of many) makes the likes of Liberty City, Sky Rim and Red Dead Redemption look positively minuscule by comparison. Thankfully, the game is set in 2030, so you’d imagine there’d be some reasonable means of getting across it quickly.
