    The Witcher 3: Two Areas Are Over 52 Square Miles by Themselves...

    source


    CD Projekt Red and Umbra Software held a presentation titled “Solving Visibility and Streaming in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt with Umbra 3“ at the Game Developers Conference, and it included a very interesting detail (that I happened to overlook when I first examined the original slides) as discovered by Reddit user fughp.
    The slides mention the size of two of the areas included in the game: the city of Novigrad measures 8.5 x 8.5 km for a total size of 72,25 square km, while Skellige is 8 x 8 km, meaning 64 square km. Summed up, the two areas cover 136,25 square km, which convert to just north of 52 square miles.
    By comparison, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim‘s world has been calculated to measure 14.8 square miles. This means that the two areas named above are already over 3.5 times larger than the whole Skyrim map.
    This is actually fairly interesting since back in June CD Projekt RED described The Witcher 3 as 20% larger than Bethesda’s open world game. We currently don’t know if that was just a preliminary estimate, or the Witcher‘s world just got bigger since then.
    We reached out to CD Projekt RED requesting information to shed light on the issue, and we’ll keep you updated if we receive any relevant answer. In the meanwhile one thing is for sure: the world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is pretty damn big.

    Well, that just doesn't add up at all. That's not the size of the city, like the article says, just it and the land around it. What's important is what you can do in that space, not how big it is.

    Daggerfall is 487,000 square kilometers. Over twice the size of Great Britain.

    Hopefully its filled with lots to do. I'm still back and forth about this game. I feel like I should play the first two games. I know you don't have to to know what's going on in this this one but...

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    I also thought it was a little overrated. It was a great game, but I remember people losing their $#@! and hyping it up as a crown of gaming.

    had great story and great production value and everything, but just didn't feel like true RPG.

    It felt like great action adventure game with RPG attached to it. I didn't think RPG element was deep and rewarding enough.
