For all that we’ve seen Geralt huffing and puffing his way through the vast wilderness of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, up until now we’ve not known for sure just how large this landmass would be. A cartophile’s dream come true, The Witcher 3’s Northern realms stretches for miles, incorporating what looks to be many townships, mountains, and remote islands to explore.
Needless to say, if you don’t want The Witcher 3’s world map spoiled ahead of stepping into it for yourself come May 19th, then I suggest you don’t read on. But, I know you probably can’t resist a peek, go on.
The map available at the moment is a teeny bit smaller than we'd have liked, but you can click on it to expand it. Up towards the north there is a large, corrupt city of Novigrad, while the bottom-left boxout is the wind-swept Skellige islands, accessible only via sea travel.
Your progress through The Witcher 3 won't just be limited to trekking those snaking pathways though, CD Projekt RED promise you'll be able to sail the open seas, go diving for long lost treasure, or ride your steed into battle. Assassin's Creed, anyone?
It's tricky to contextualise just how large a landmass this is, but based on the number of landmarks and CDPR's propensity to cram its games full of content, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt could be a gargantuan beast when it arrives on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on May 19th. That's just 42 days, Witcher fans.
