Among the documents of the massive The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt design leak happened today there was something very interesting: the map of the island of Ard Skellig, which is the largest landmass in the Skellige archipelago.
Damn thats a huge map
Hope the sea is big enough to travel for a bit. edit:grammar
I believe it is going to be. One interview I was watching yesterday stated you will even be able to dive underwater in the ocean, although the dev advised it may not be the best idea - monsters underwater and the waters off the Skellige coast are freezing! lol. This game is looking awesome.I Cannot wait until Feb. 2015.
dive underwhater? :o this game will be epic.
@elhebbo16 Yeah,for a long time they said only that you could swim above the water. then they recently revealed you could now dive underwater,anywhere that water is deep enough to dive in. There will be hidden treasure to find too.Some that is hidden in caves only reachable via diving underwater and of course,at bottoms of lakes I imagine. This game is going to be epic.
Huge!! But its that it for me, no more The Wither 3 news!!! i want be suprise by this game so 8months to go!!! See ya in 2015;)
64 square kilometers and it is just one of three areas you can explore, and it's not even the largest one very cool news indeed.
Uh...that's damned big.
The world is going to be huge from the sounds of it. One major thing to keep in mind,an this is not saying it will be barren with nothing to do. I believe the size and scope of Witcher 3 is for proper scaling of the areas we will visit. Skyrim and many other similar open world games can at times feel cramped. walk 15-20ft. and there are caves and dungeons everywhere. I love the content,don't get me wrong. I believe Witcher is going for a more accurate scale for it's explorable interiors and exteriors. I am sure it will have plenty of content, it just might be a little more spread out when compared to say Fallout 3 or Skyrim.
