The Witcher 3 fans surprised with epic new story quest after 9 years

The Witcher 3 fans surprised with epic new story quest after 9 years

Did you know about this Witcher 3 quest?

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is not only one of the best games that CD Projekt RED has to offer but it is also considered to be one of the best video games of all time.

When The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was initially released in 2015 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, before being released on more recent platforms, it helped to put Polish developer CDPR on the map. With a Metacritic score of 92 and earning the “Must-Play” accolade, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has been cemented as an all-time great.

“You are Geralt of Rivia, mercenary monster slayer. Before you stand a war-torn, monster-infested continent you can explore at will,” reads the synopsis of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. “Your current contract? Tracking down Ciri — the Child of Prophecy, a living weapon that can alter the shape of the world.”

The open world of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt known as the Continent, is a huge place to explore packed with interesting side missions, NPCs and much more. So it stands to reason that even after nearly a decade, players are still making discoveries to this day.

“Returning to The Witcher 3 after nine years to find this quest and I couldn't be happier,” announced Redditor Ghost_Leader07 to fellow members on the thread. “I played The Witcher 3 on release. I put about 800 hours into it on PC, but I haven't played it since 2016, yet with the release of the next-gen update, I had to jump back to it.”

“I decided to play it on PlayStation 5, and in my first playthrough, I came across this quest (in the Eternal Fire's Shadow) that I've never seen in my previous eight playthroughs,” they continued.

“Later I found out it was a new quest added with the next-gen update which was a great surprise. This is arguably one of the best quests in The Witcher 3 in my opinion, unsettling atmosphere, cool boss design, interesting characters and story.”

“This was an epic side quest that deserved way more depth, and screen time,” replied jaykub24. “Damn, do I need to replay this game now?” asked dan_mysz.

“Legit is one of the best side quests in the game, I can't wait for what they are cooking for the next Witcher game,” exclaimed Fil8pos150. “The best side quest in the game. I wish it was a bit longer,” said Kazzzzzia.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is out now on PC, PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo Switch.
