A fully open-world - The Witcher 3's eight most expansive new features

While previous Witcher games have featured expansive worlds, they’ve never been fully ‘open’.

the only unique feature "Tracking down clues". It would be grat if it's implemented in a great quantity and not just 2-3 times.

All other things have been seen or promised in other open world games.

It remains to be seen in CDPR nails the side quests, but from the beginning they wanted it to actually be open world.

Is not fully open world. Creators said: "Is closer to Dragon Age than Skyrim" That means open big areas, not fully open whole map.

Really? I heard map size was bigger than Skyrims in total.

Do you read? Look at the comment above yours.

It is NOT open world. It just has various large, open spaces that you fast travel between. Think Dragon Age Inquisition.

The game is still open world. You just have disguised loading screens between areas, while it's being loaded in the background. DA:I had actual loading screens.

It's basically open world, but I'm assuming (from the interview), that if you have to reach an island, you'd have to be on the boat and the boat would serve as a loading screen of sorts.
