“You see that mountain in the distance? You can go there.” This is a promise made by many open world games, but The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine uses these towering mounds as a clever way of obscuring the edges of its beautifully crafted map. However, it’s at the peak of one of these unreachable mountains where a secret resides.
The Witcher 3 truly deserves its place in our list of PC’s best RPGs.
This secret is only reachable by using the game’s debug free camera and teleporting Geralt to its location – the peak of the most distant mountain sitting on Toussaint’s horizon.
It’s an Easter egg picture of the Blood and Wine development team, sat on a easel and nestled between two pillars – all backed by textures that would be more at home in the backgrounds of a Dark Souls game.
The picture is a lovely little touch. It feels like the development team planting a flag. They’re proud of their creation, as they should be. “We made this and here are our lovely faces,” they probably said as they plonked it down.
