In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt you can sail or swim to various islands  

In addition to the mainland in the game, The Witcher 3 players will also be able to swim or sail to various islands off the coast.

Speaking in an interview with Russian news outlet Stratege.ru, Witcher 3 writer Jakub Szamałek said each island will hold its own secrets and there will be five large ones and around the same number of smaller islands to explore.

"You can not only use the boat to sail but also swim under water, opening up new areas that are inaccessible by land," said Szamałek. "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.”

Is it May 19 yet? No. It's not. But it will be next month.
