A huge number of details regarding The Witcher 3 have appeared online, following internal design documents being stolen.
A CD Projekt Red employee's Google Drive was hacked into, with the contents quickly finding their way onto the likes of Reddit. Inside, information pertaining to the title's story, missions, maps, enemies and ending are all revealed.
The developer has gone on record advising anyone interested in the story of the game to avoid the document as there are heaps of spoilers. As a result, we won't post any information about them here, though you're more than welcome to follow the link and find them for yourself. What we can look at, however, is the impressive maps and monster design also revealed.
The map of the island of Ard Skellig is said to be 64 kilometres squared, and is just one of the areas you'll be exploring in the game. While we've yet to get confirmation whether or not the landmass has been modified since this map was created, if it's remained similar in terms of mass then the finished product could be massive. With Novigrad and No Man's Land also confirmed as areas you'll traverse, it's probably a good idea to pack your hiking boots.
Art revealing monsters also features in the asset leak, as does the revelation that the game could be completed without progression issues as of February this year. It seems the remaining year until release is set to focus on creating music, recording dialogue, debugging and adding content.
There's also mention of both SmartGlass and Kinect, though we don't specifically find out how these will be implemented. Seeing as the developer has previously made clear it will not be offering platform exclusive content, presumably it's nothing too earth-shattering.
