A fan has found an Easter egg in The Witcher 3 seven years after it was first released in 2015. A YouTuber by the name of xLetalis posted a video just yesterday detailing the exciting find. The discovery shows that Vivienne, a character who players are able to help with a curse that results in a seven-year lifespan can actually be found dead after fans play the game for that long. Check out the video below to learn more.
The character Vivienne in The Witcher 3 is the prime focus of the game’s expansion Blood and Wine: The Warble of a Smitten Knight quest. This mission sees Geralt search for and find the character after she’s turned into a half-bird creature. He offers to lift the curse, with Vivienne acknowledging that it could mean she will only have the lifespan of the animal as a result. She accepts this risk and can later be found in Skellige. The Easter egg has players find Vivienne dead in Yennefer’s room at Kaer Trolde Harbour after more than seven years, or 2,500 days, has passed in the game.
CD Projekt Red lead quest designer Philipp Weber said to IGN on the find, “I’m not sure if it’s the last secret, but it for sure is pretty close. Everyone hid so many details during the last months of development that people are probably still going to find something new one day. For sure this is the Easter Egg I hid the most out of all the ones I did, so it’s quite impressive it was finally found.”
When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was first released, it was praised for its sheer size and great detail. The fact that CD Projekt Red included an Easter egg that can only be found seven years after the game is first begun proves the praise was not misplaced. Check out this highly-acclaimed game on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. A next-gen version is due to release for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S in Q2 2022.
