In-game map of the Pontar Region in The Witcher 3
|Pontar Delta; large mass where the battlefronts between the Nilfgaard and Nördliche Königreiche lie|
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 Redanien 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 Eibenbucht, Kranichwerder, the city of Gyscht, and the settlement of Weißbrücke (originally intended to appear).
The region holds (with the Hearts of Stone expansion included):

The former Temerien 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 Krähenfels. The prevailing terrain consists of forests and swamps.
