Data-miners dig deep into Zelda: Breath of the Wild, create massive world map


It's no secret that Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now... out in the wild. In fact, people have been playing early copies - and cracked versions - for several days.

But, amongst a lot of spoilers, one thing to hit the internet which is truly astonishing is this ridiculously huge version of the game's map.

The map was generated by fans using data from Zelda: Breath of the Wild's files. Its full version, posted to GameFAQs, weighs in at 145MB.

Obviously, if you don't want to see the map ahead of time, you should look no further.

Read on, though, to see every mountain, road and river in Breath of the Wild's enormous overworld - every patch of trees and rock formation.

Here's a zoomed out version. Click below to expand the image and view it at five per cent size of the original:

The full version, all 24,000 x 20,000 pixels of it, can be downloaded from Google Drive here.

In the centre you can see Hyrule Castle, with the various regions in their normal places - Death Mountain to the top right, desert to the left.

The game's starting Plateau area is visible south of Hyrule Castle and slightly to the west. Even this sizable area looks tiny when compared to the map's overall size.

Eurogamer will publish its Zelda: Breath of the Wild review tomorrow. Like the game itself, it's not to be missed.
