Fallout 4 Far Harbor Size Compared to the Commonwealth World Map


Fallout 4 Far Harbor Size Compared to the Commonwealth World Map

With Fallout 4’s Far Harbor DLC beginning to release around the world, we’re just starting to experience the huge new landmass it has to offer. Thanks to Gamepedia, we now have a visual comparison of Far Harbor’s size against that of the Commonwealth as a whole.

When the DLC was first revealed, Bethesda confirmed that Far Harbor’s landmass would be the biggest to come as DLC that the team had ever worked on, therefore making it bigger than the pretty huge Shivering Isles DLC for The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

The two images below give us a pretty good idea of just how big the island is and how much we’ll be able to explore when we finally get our hands on it.

In order to work out the scale for this comparison, each square on the map of the Commonwealth (top image) corresponds to four cells (2×2). The map of Far Harbor is to scale, and each square on the grid corresponds to one cell. By then comparing the number of squares and cells, it has been deduced that Far Harbor’s map is about 20% of the Commonwealth. Of course, there’s always room for error in these types of calculations, so don’t take these figures as gospel.
