A new location has been revealed in regards to the upcoming multiplatform video game, "The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on May 12, players will be able to visit the canals underneath the city of Novigrad in the open-world action role-playing game. However, CD Projekt Red also warned players that they shouldn't visit the area unless they have a really good reason to explore it.

In addition to a collection of garbage and wastes, the canals also contain various creatures. The development team also revealed that the area was also constructed on an ancient settlement of Elves, possibility hinting at some ghastly apparitions as well. It may not be a friendly place to explore unless the player is highly-leveled and well-equipped. An image of the Novigrad canals from the official "Witcher" Facebook page can be seen on the top side of this article. The full details on the location is located below:

The Novigrad canals are a nest of monsters and all the filth that the city wants to hide underneath its streets. Being an ancient construct built on the ruins of old elven settlements, only the bravest (or the foolish) dare to descent there. Don’t go there unless you have a pretty damn good reason!

Players should be exploring many other areas in addition to the Novigrad canals in "The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt." The final game is expected to be massive, even bigger than the popular "The Elder Scrolls V Skyrim." Furthermore, CD Projekt Red is planning to make each location important with missions and side-quests. It should take around 100 hours to complete everything the first time through. The 36 different endings should also add additional replay value.

"The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt" has a new release date window set for next Feb. after being delayed due to CD Projekt Red wanting to add more polish to the software product. The launch time frame also helps the company as more PS4 and Xbox One will be sold by the release of the sequel to "The Witcher" and "The Witcher 2 Assassins of Kings." The third main installment of the series, which is being published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, will put an end to the trilogy although the franchise could still continue.
