The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will not show you any loading screens, unless you fast travel.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is a massive game with plenty of regions, towns and buildings. But according to developer CD Projekt RED, going through this world will be seamless, without a hint of a loading screen.
Speaking to Gamespot CD Projekt RED’s Jonas Mattsson said that you can go through the game’s world without needing to fast travel, with the exception of one location surrounded by water and is far away from the rest of the world.
“Exactly. Kaer Morhen [a region to the north]. That’s a separate small level as well there. But on the full open world, there’s no loading time. You can travel and roam around as you wish.”
Later answering the question of whether or not we are going to see loading times definitively.
“No, there’s no loading times. Only when you actually start the game, when die and load the game, or when you fast travel. That fast travel loading time depends on how far you have to travel of course. If you just fast travel a little bit, it’s a really short loading time,” he said.
“For us, that was really important. I think we achieved that because, as you said, just going in and out of a building, there’s no loading time. Nothing. It’s just creates this really nice experience.”
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out May 19.
