The anticipated Days Gone is out now, exclusively on PS4. To start with, you only have a small Days Gone map to explore, but what if we could tell you how to make it much, much bigger? Read on to discover how to unlock the full Days Gone map. You’ll also get to see the full Days Gone map below, too. Who doesn’t want a massive map to explore in an open world game?
Days Gone Map | How big is the full map?
Unfortunately, we don’t have any numbers to share with you, but it’s safe to say that the full map of Days Gone is massive (which you can see for yourself in the image above). There are a total of six unique regions to explore in the map, each one offering something a little different. There are deserts, lakes, forests, mountains, and even snow and ice covered landscapes to explore. There is plenty to see and do in Days Gone’s version of Oregon.
If you’re worried that the map at the beginning of the game appears too small, don’t worry, there are ways of unlocking the full thing.
Days Gone Map | How to unlock more of the map
The only way in which you can unlock more of the map to explore in Days Gone is to play through the story missions. To make sure that you are playing story missions, look out for the yellow markers on the map. Playing through the story expands Deacon’s world far beyond its initial borders.
Be warned, though. At multiple stages during the game, you won’t be able to return to previous areas if you choose to enter the next. The game will make this very clear to you. Upon completing Days Gone, however, you will be able to return to any area of the map. Perfect for the completionists out there.
If you want to clear that pesky fog on the map, too, simply head to those areas. You can clear sizeable chunks of the fog, too, by completing Ambush Camps or NERO Checkpoints.
