I may have to ask this dwarf for directions, but he looks pretty angry…. The map for the first chapter of The Witcher 2. In reality though, the town is actually in the middle of dense forest. Or, like the Boy Scouts tell you, just bring a compass. Surely, a professional Witcher like Geralt of Rivia could be able to tell you which way is north, right?
Apparently not. A quick side note — while those little shields might look great on your computer monitor, they are terrible on a TV. There are some hills and some valleys in the town. And a ton of enterable houses. None of these things are even hinted at on the map. So if you forget where something is located, that means either trying to interpret the small, poorly lit signs out front, or a lot of entering random doors to see what happens and a lot of loading screens. Vergen is a big city, no doubt.
Incredibly, if you zoom out too far I instead get transported to a world map view of the world. So if the game insists on zooming out to some other wider view, why not the surrounding area? It would at least have some potential to be useful, unlike the world map, which is an absolute waste of time.
Anyway, back to the map of Vergen itself. Among the things that the map does a terrible job at is conveying the massive change in elevation among the city. The town was built into the side of some hills, so there are ledges that cause inaccessible areas everywhere. Sometimes being right next to where you need to be means that you still have a long way to go because you have to figure out how to get to the right elevation.
Check it out — this door leads to another area:. It has been ridiculously frustrating. Even including a compass on the mini-map would make a huge difference. Pingback: Borderlands 2: Thoughts on Usability - that game's ux.

The depth of the gameplay and the mature, non-linear storyline make The Witcher 2 one of the most complex and unique RPGs ever released on consoles. First off, this comic is absolutely stunning. Soundtrack is right from the original game with also very nice ambient effect overlapping the experience. Animations are fun to watch and fun to participate in. Story telling is done well. The problems I had with it were, well mild are just a little detracting from making this a perfect motion comic.
Overall the comic is free fun and enjoyable. Really, really wanting some more issues. I was super excited to read comics as I am a new Witcher fan. I spent a few minutes and I was fully emerged in the comic and it's story. There was drawing signs such as AARD and Igni my two favorite signs other than quen and just enjoying a witcher joyride until I flipped a page and was left with "To be continued I mean you could buy the witcher 2 and get yourself a real book but that's not why I downloaded this app.

First and foremost, the player marker, you, or Geralt if you prefer.Why is that, I hear you ask? The only ones that ever were featured in translated versions of The Witcher saga only, such as Czech, Spanishand Russian. One map that Sapkowski endorsed —though only by default— was the very first one, which was apparently drawn by the editors of his Polish website.
This was actually riddled with errors and subsequently corrected across a number of different variations included in translated editions of the books. Many of its locations were later swapped around, too, as Sapkowski finished his saga.
In video game developer CD Projekt Red produced its own version, which Sapkowski did apparently provide assistance with. This has more or less become accepted as canon ever since by virtue of being most widely used, but it too makes a number of errors. For a start, it mistakenly positions Gemmera as being inland when it is described as having a long stretch of coastline in the books. The map also incorrectly depicts Aedd Gynvael as being in Kaedwen when it is supposed to be in Narok, as well as misplacing the Toina river in the wrong region.
A host of other errors are listed here. One popular fan theory is that the Continent is Poland —and the whole European continent— flipped 90 degrees. As inspirations for each region, my personal take is that this speculation does seem to more or less line up. That said, with interest in the franchise sky high right now, our chances have never been better.
Please, Sapkowski, put us nerds out of our misery! Information compiled in this article was drawn from sources that include The Witcher Fandom wiki pageas well as the diligent research by Adam Whiteheadas published on atlastoficeandfireblog. Whitehead has his own map render based on modified versions of different Continent map iterations and his own personal impressions from the book, which I encourage you to check out.

See you around! An interactive map of the Northern Kingdoms from The Witcher 2 game. This is a work in progress and may change at any time.
The following browsers have been use to test the map:. To view the map, click here. Based on my very limited research, there are inaccuracies in the game map. If you would like to help in making an accurate map of the Witcher world, I would need a base map without the fortresses, cities, towns, names and such and the corrections in the locations.

Below is an interactive map of The Forge Lands from Darksiders 2 :. There are also videos of some of the notable encounters in the game. Due to the amount of material related to the maps, expect certain things to be broken.
Great work on the maps — I wonder is there any way of accurately determining the size of an area like the Forge Lands? I estimate its possibly about feet across at the widest point, but I could be wrong. Thanks and I have no idea how determine the approximate size of an area. I posed the same question on the Nordic Games Darksiders forums. Not sure if anyone will have the answer.

I am playing through the Deathinitive Edition at the moment so with a bit more testing I should be able to make an accurate gauge of the distance assuming the maps are perfectly to scale. Thanks for the quick reply though. You are commenting using your WordPress.
