With the inevitable next chapter of the Witcher video game series now in development, one would think that players have discovered absolutely every last secret of the last mainline Witcher title. A game as big as The Witcher 3 will surely hide some secrets, but that’s about it years since launch and certainly picked absolutely clean, right?
Well, one such secret was discovered almost seven years after the game was first launched in 2015. Granted, the discovery was made within the blood and wine DLC that came out in 2016, so no pretty much seven years ago, but still!
The mystery itself revolves around a character named Vivienne de Tabris, who was cursed to look like a bird. The curse can be lifted, but the resulting price will be Vivienne’s lifespan equal to that of a bird, which happens to be seven in-game years.
As discovered by @xLetalis, if Geralt would meditate in the game for the required seven years, then Vivienne could indeed be found dead in her home. It’s a pretty cool – if slightly morbid – Easter egg that shows how much thought CD Projekt Red put into the game.
The video demonstrating the secret can be viewed below. Phillip Weber, acting lead quest designer for The Witcher 3, praised the discovery in a retweet; Phillip previously hinted at the secret during a company charity stream.
