Jul 01, 2024 3:03 PM

A passionate Witcher 3 modder has revived a significant amount of cut content from the role-playing game’s ending, originally scrapped by CD Projekt Red. YouTuber xLetalis and modder glassfish777 have showcased this extended ending, which diverges substantially from the game's official conclusion. This cut content includes scenes post-Geralt's fight with Eredin, unique interactions with Yennefer and Triss, and deeper lore connections, such as the presence of the Lodge of Sorceresses and its critical developments. The rediscovered sequence highlights new dialogues, character interactions, and pivotal plot elements that were omitted for the sake of pacing. Released with the help of REDkit, CD Projekt’s official modding tool, this content offers fans an enriched narrative experience that may have significant implications for Witcher lore.

What impact does the restored ending have on the overall story of The Witcher 3?n

The restored ending adds numerous character interactions and plot details that deepen the narrative, including Geralt's dealings with Yennefer, Triss, and the Lodge of Sorceresses. This version also provides more closure and backstory to various in-game events, making the overall story more comprehensive and connected to the wider Witcher lore.

For those unfamiliar, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is an award-winning action role-playing game developed by CD Projekt Red. Set in a beautifully crafted open world, players control Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a Witcher, as he searches for his adopted daughter, Ciri. The game is renowned for its rich storytelling, complex characters, and immersive gameplay, making it one of the most acclaimed games of the last decade. The Witcher series itself is based on a series of books by Andrzej Sapkowski, further expanded by various games and a Netflix television series, contributing to its extensive and beloved lore.
