The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Will Feature Off-Shore Accessible Islands

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is already a massive game with a lot to do and plenty of areas to visit. But did you know that in addition to the mainland, you will also be able to visit different Islands?

Speaking in an interview, Witcher 3 writer Jakub Szamałek revealed more about these Islands and said they will hold several secrets of their own. There will be five large Islands and 4-5 smaller ones which players can visit.

You can not only use the boat to sail but also swim under water, opening up new areas that are inaccessible by land. We have designed five large islands and about the same number of smaller ones, which we have not yet demonstrated in public.

On these Islands, you will find many different places to explore such as ancient ruins, caves, abandoned building and more.

Szamalek further added:

Some of them will be associated with Geralt’s story, while others just hide behind a lot of secrets. In general, they all carry some meaning. Our team spent a lot of time to recreate the world of Geralt and make it feel alive.

Well, that information just makes it even harder to wait for The Witcher 3. The game has been delayed more than once already but is now expected next month on May 19.

The game is a current-gen exclusive so expect it only for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
