In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the Pontar represents part of the world map that covers the Pontar Delta region. It consists of war-torn Velen, the independent city of Novigrad and southern parts of Redanian territory, including the city of Oxenfurt. Although the in-game map labels the two major regions as "Velen & Novigrad", both are contained on the same game world.

The game's rendition of the region excludes some locations from the Witcher saga, namely Acorn Bay, Crane Islet, the city of Foam, and the settlement of White Bridge (originally intended to appear).

The region holds (with the Hearts of Stone expansion included):

The region is also a home for 9 Innkeep innkeepers, 7 Blacksmith blacksmiths, 6 Armorer armorers, 12 Herbalist}} herbalists , 69 Merchant or shopkeeper shopkeepers and a Runewright runewright..


The former Temerian province of Velen (also known as No Man's Land) - currently under Nilfgaardian occupation - also constitutes the largest part of the Pontar region. Situated south of Novigrad and west of Oxenfurt, its provisional capital is Crow's Perch. The prevailing terrain consists of forests and swamps.
