With a new season of The Witcher releasing very soon, many fans of the series are once again returning to the games and books as the universe of The Witcher is refreshed in their minds. The Witcher 3 may have released over six years ago, yet the fanbase for the game still remains strong, and people are finding new ways to enjoy it constantly.
From a cool crossover fan art of Ciri in Assassin’s Creed gear, to people still finding the details buried in the quests and map of The Witcher 3 six years on, fans are still finding reasons to head back to the Northern Realms. One particular player though, doesn’t seem to care for any of that, and is instead seeking the most extreme thrills available in The Witcher 3.
In a game where a player can track and fight monsters, romance sorceresses and stage a political coup to topple a king, few would be mistaken if they thought there were enough exciting moments in The Witcher 3. For one player though, none of those things seemed enough, as their wish was to take a dive from the bridge to Kaer Trolde in the Skellige portion of the game’s map. As one of the highest points that Geralt can technically jump from, the player in the clip hits a near-perfect pencil dive as they hurtle towards the waters below.
Yet, just as Geralt dives from the bridge, his trajectory leads him towards a small lip of land extending over the waters. Geralt then collides with the ground, yet the player is not met with a game over screen, and instead after a glitch that sees them collide with the world for a moment, Geralt is back upright without a single hit-point lost. With that much of a rollercoaster of emotions in such a short clip, it would make most Witcher 3 players want to sit back and enjoy the quieter side of the game, like one video which takes Geralt through all the regions of the game.
Whether it is diving headfirst into solid stone or seeing a ghost ship near the isle of Hindarsfjall, the isles of Skellige in The Witcher 3 hold plenty of secrets, just as any other portion of the game’s map. One commenter on the Reddit post even commented that this is how Geralt would earn respect in Skellige, while another compared the ridiculous parkour to Assassin’s Creed.
With a next-gen re-release of The Witcher 3 on the way soon, players will shortly have another excuse to step back into the shoes of Geralt of Rivia, though if this clip is anything to go by, it seems fans don’t need any more excuses to play The Witcher 3.
The Witcher 3 is available on the PC, Playstation, Xbox, and Nintendo Switch.
