Witcher 3 Map Revealed
Just how big is the world of The Witcher 3? Check out this new video to find out.
We already knew that CD Projekt Red's upcoming open-world RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was going to be a massive game in terms of how long it will take you to complete it. But now the developer has shared new insight into just how large the Witcher 3 world is by releasing the first images of the game's map.
You can see the map images and hear directly from CD Projekt Red developers in GameSpot's new video feature below, which we filmed on-site at the studio's office in Poland earlier this year.
You'll notice that The Witcher 3's world isn't just one big map; it's actually broken into two maps: a smaller Prologue map and the larger Northern Realm. There is also an archipelago destination that you can visit only by boat. Traveling to this location is one of the few instances in The Witcher 3 where you'll encounter a loading screen.
CD Projekt Red also teases that what you see in the video below represents only The Witcher 3's mortal realm. The game also has regions described as fantastical and unnatural, but the developer is keeping official details under wraps for now so as not to spoil story elements.
Watch the video below to learn more about The Witcher 3's vast world. The video is the second installment in a three-part video series we're airing this week. You can watch the first episode here, while the third will debut tomorrow.
The Witcher 3's release date is May 19 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Digital copies of the game unlock that day at 1 AM UTC, which is actually in the late afternoon/early evening in the United States on May 18.
