In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, players will not only be able to explore the RPG’s large mainland area, but they will also be able to swim or sail to a number of islands.
In an interview with Stratege.ru, Witcher 3 writer Jakub Szamałek explained that there will be around 10 islands to explore, and some islands will contain special secrets.
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.
You will see a lot of interesting places to explore: ancient ruins, abandoned buildings, caves and much more. We created each of these places in a unique way for the players who want to get there.
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.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is set to come out on May 19 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. are you excited to visit some mysterious islands?
