Those are some awesome screenshots. The first one looks almost otherworldly. Only 24 more days to go.

Here the two of us are again in a Witcher article. After saying yesterday that I was going dark, I think I need help. I can't stop clicking on them.

-snow area
-dense forests
-old battlefields
-deep sea/open sea
-islands

Yeah that desert looks epic!

Also for some reason that screenshot made me think of Halo.

Maybe it was the Halo 5 reveal trailer set in the desert, and that alien looking moon.

For those familiar with the Witcher books , I think it just might be Korath desert a.k.a. the frying pan.It is where Ciri was dumped mid-air. Here is a link for more info, be careful of book spoilers. Here is a really badass video someone made in UE4 of what Korath might look like. If you ask me, not too far off from what that image with those creatures and Geralt looks like.

Looking at that image, if they were to add a bit more red to the rocks & environment I would be just about 100% positive that this was a confirmation of Korath. Which to be perfectly honest, I would of thought that area would make an appearance in-game. It might not be Korath but some other barren area we don't know enough about.

* I meant to say in my last comment that I did not expect this area making it into the game. We will just have to wait and see on May 19th. We do know there are supposedly 5-6 separate locations from the main 3 core regions - Novigrad, NML and the Skellige Islands. We are aware of 2 of these, 1.) Kaer Morhen, the WItcher fortress, training grounds and Winter home and 2.)The Vizima Royal Palace. If we aren't counting White Orchard, the prologue area, then this still leaves 3-4 locations we have no idea about.Maybe this is one of those separate smaller areas of the game?*

Here is an excerpt from the Witcher saga book 'The Time of Contempt' describing a bit of Korath:

“She was completely surrounded by a greyish-red, stony plain, scored by ravines and faults, with mounds of stones and huge, strangely shaped rocks. High above the plain hung an enormous, golden burning sun, turning the entire sky yellow, distorting visibility with its blinding glare and making the air shimmer.”
— pg(s). 255, Time of Contempt (UK edition)

If it truly is the Korath desert then this opens a few opportunities to finally show more of the Witcher world and some of it's monsters that up until now have only been referenced and talked about in the novels and games.
