Quick Quotes: Reckoning’s world is “really, really big” and “incredibly dense”
“It’s big. Really, really big. And perhaps more importantly, it’s incredibly dense. I couldn’t tell you the exact square footage of the overworld map, but I can tell you that it takes over half an hour to sprint at full [speed] across the map, even if you somehow avoid all combat. As for dungeons, there are around 130 of them in the game, and each one is hand-crafted in several different art styles, from crystal caverns to the organic innards of an ancient tree, so there’s an awful lot of variety to experience there.” – Big Huge Games’ Ian Frazier to 360 Magazine on the size of the game world in Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.
