Even though The Witcher 3 was released in 2015, there are still exciting things to discover.
It’s only Wednesday, but we can already say that this week is a week of celebration for The Witcher fans. CD Projekt RED confirmed just yesterday that a new game in the series is in the works, but that doesn’t mean that the other games have been forgotten. In that sense, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is yet another curiosity that reminds us once again why it was named Game of the Year in so many places back in the day.
“Without a doubt, it’s the easter egg I’ve hidden the most of all.”- Philipp Weber
As IGN points out, it seems that user xLetalis has found a new “easter egg” featuring Vivienne, a character from the Blood and Wine supplement. The said NPC was cursed in the game, which was broken at the risk of the young noblewoman dying after seven years. Now it turns out that if we meditate for about 2500 days in the game or fast-forward the console time, Vivienne will indeed be found dead in Yennefer’s room in the harbour of Kaer Trolde.
After xLetalis’s post went viral, easter egg creator Philipp Weber quickly reacted to the revelation. “Everyone has hidden so many details in the last months of development that people will probably still find something new one day.” But Vivienne’s case is quite unique for Weber: “It’s definitely the Easter egg I’ve hidden the most out of all the ones I’ve made, so it’s pretty great that they’ve finally found it.”
So while we wait for the next instalment of The Witcher, we can keep discovering surprises in Rivia’s latest adventure with Geralt. But what do we know about CD Projekt RED’s next game? For now, the creators stress that they have not yet given their project an official name, although they can confirm that it will not be tied to any exclusivity.
