The Witcher 3 Has An Easter Egg That Takes 7 Years To Find

The Witcher 3 Has An Easter Egg That Takes 7 Years To Find

After several hints were dropped regarding The Witcher 3's "last secret", fans of the game were scrambling to figure out what it could be. Quest designer, Philipp Weber, teased gamers further by tweeting about "Vivienne's last secret" earlier this year. 

Now, a YouTuber by the name of xLetalis has figured it out, reports PCGamer

What Is The Witcher 3's Last Secret?

Philip Weber's dropped a few hints in the past, such as saying that it's on Skellige, and that it goes "quite a bit further" than anyone expected. However, what we didn't know is that you have to travel seven years into the future to be able to see exactly what the Easter egg is. 

It all stems down to a side quest called The Warble of a Smitten Knight. It takes place in the Blood and Wine expansion, where Guillaume de Launfal asks Geralt to help lift a curse from Vivienne de Tabris. You basically have to investigate what happened, as well as take de Launfal's place in the Knight Tournament, which he can't do due to an injury. There's a whole load of other parts to this that we won't spoil, but while you're investigating the curse (which sees de Tabris slowly turning into a bird), you discover that there's a way of being able to lift it. This is done by effectively transferring the curse into an oriole's egg (the kind of bird she's turning into). However, you warn her that it could mean that she drops dead seven years from now. 

 

When you lift the curse, she travels the world (including Skellige). But xLetalis decided to speed up time in-game by seven years and see if she did survive. As you've probably gathered by now, sadly the curse does catch up with her, and she dies. 

Now, this is a pretty niche bit of detective work, but kudos to xLetalis for figuring this out. 

How Can You See The Final Easter Egg In The Witcher 3?

Well, as explained above, you can either speed time up or wait seven years IRL for it to show itself. Although Blood and Wine didn't come out until May 2016, so you've still got a bit of time left if you want to wait it out. 

Either way, this is a brilliant final Easter egg, and makes us even more excited about the next instalment of The Witcher that's just been announced by CD Projekt RED.
