Create Maps for Each of the Game’s Locations
Because the Witcher 3 map is one of the largest video game maps in the world, if you decide to make your own the map poster, you may need to create individual maps for each of the game’s locations.
The Witcher 3 has different regions and locations, with much of the action taking place in: White Orchard, Velen, Novigrad, Kaer Morhen, and the Skellige Isles.
The Skellige Isles for example, are enormous and are coastal and mountainous, similar to the Highlands of Scotland or the rugged coastline of Ireland. Novigrad is the continent’s biggest city, so is very urban, whereas Velen, also known as ‘No Man’s Land’ is home to swamps, open valleys, forests, fields, and villages.
Because each location has so much going on, if you try merging the maps into one full map, your finished design would be far too cluttered, and in all honesty you wouldn’t be able to fit everything onto one screen.
Therefore, you can create an individual map for each location, such as the Witcher 3 crookback bog map, white orchard map, velen map and interactive map of Velen & Novigrad.
