Take a look at the steps below to find out how to obtain the three (so far) discovered endings to Blood and Wine, the final expansion of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has an absurd amount of content included in the base game. The paid expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, follow that same trend; neither of them lack for content.
The newest expansion, Blood and Wine, contains multiple endings that affect the fate of Toussaint, the region in which it takes place. Whereas Wild Hunt‘s multiple endings came from a variety of different sources, the different endings of Blood and Wine are achieved through actions in just a few different quests. Here are the ways to alter the ending of The Witcher 3: Blood and Wine.
There are two ways to get this ending. The first involves tracking down Damien during “The Night of the Long Fangs” quest, proceeding to “Beyond Hill and Dale,” obtaining Syanna’s ribbon, and not continuing the investigation. The second way involves tracking Orianna instead and moving through “Blood Simple” and “What Lies Unseen.” This is Blood and Wine‘s sad ending, as it involves both of the leading ladies, Anna and Syanna, meeting their untimely end.
The second ending involves much more effort, but leads to Blood and Wine‘s “good” ending. It follows the same path as the first ending, but after obtaining the ribbon, Geralt must speak with Syanna in her cell. While going through the “Pomp and Strange Circumstance” quest, investigate the fifth victim, guess Syanna’s motives, and encourage her to forgive her sister. Finally, at the trial, Geralt must not shift the blame, but instead argue for mercy. This will cause the sisters to reconcile, and they both survive.
For the final ending, the only different action involves not obtaining the ribbon from the vendor Flint and proceeding to the end of the game.
Not every sidequest and option has been fully explored, so there may be even more endgame content yet to be discovered. Many would argue that different endings are an important part of any strong RPG, and The Witcher 3 could be one of the best of all time. The actions the player takes should have an impact on the way the story ends. Blood and Wine is the finale of the storyline of The Witcher 3, which leaves two ways to go about it. If one wants to see all the content that Blood and Wine has to offer, creating a save before undertaking “The Night of the Long Fangs” seems to be the way to go. Otherwise, just accept the first ending viewed as the end to the story. After all, Geralt does not give many second chances.
Blood and Wine is the expansion to 2015’s Game of the Year The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
