The Witcher 3 is a big game, so big that even three years later it can still surprise us.

Note that the ghost ship isn’t new; some players have obviously found it previously (the pic tweeted above is from this 2015 Reddit post), but it just never blew up—or was never found in wide enough numbers—to be something that everybody knew about.

Do now!

Time for playthrough number seven, I suppose. Been meaning to poke around in Blood and Wine some more, anyway.
