Cyberpunk 2077 Player Unearths Witcher 3 Easter Egg Through a Mysterious Phone Call
On an old, weathered sticky note affixed to a grimy wall deep within the sprawling dystopia of Cyberpunk 2077, there exists a curious phone number that seemingly bridges the chasm between two iconic CD Projekt RED worlds. This hidden gem, waiting to be discovered by intrepid players, serves as a portal to the past – a past where the Witcher roamed the Northern Realms.
Eagle-eyed players with a penchant for unraveling mysteries might notice this cryptic reference, a subtle nod to CD Projekt’s other legendary RPG series. When you dial the enigmatic number “5745552377” on your in-game phone while visiting the Capitán Caliente restaurant, a familiar and nostalgic tune resonates through the cybernetic airwaves. It’s none other than the hauntingly beautiful main theme of The Witcher 3, a melody that has stirred the hearts of Witcher fans around the world.
For those who’ve embarked on V’s chaotic journey through Night City, this unexpected encounter is a delightful reminder of CD Projekt RED’s gaming legacy. Johnny Silverhand, the digital rockstar that accompanies you on your adventures, can’t help but crack a sly grin and give a thumbs-up in approval. Even if you’ve left behind that particular part of the story, fear not, for you can return to it at your leisure and relive this cross-dimensional harmony.
Curiosity piqued, I delved deeper into this obscure Easter egg. While there were other scribbled numbers on the wall, my explorations revealed that only “5745552377” granted access to this enchanting musical surprise. Other digits yielded no such connection to the Witcher world, only offering the pulse-pounding tunes of Cyberpunk 2077’s own soundtrack.
The cross-pollination between Cyberpunk 2077 and The Witcher doesn’t end there. Astute players may spot a magazine featuring none other than Ciri, the enigmatic Child of Destiny, on its cover during the Corpo lifepath intro. An arcade machine in the game beckons with a “Roach Race,” a playful homage to Geralt’s trusty steed. And in a particularly harmonious moment, Johnny Silverhand graces your ears with a rendition of the main theme from The Witcher 3’s “Blood & Wine” expansion, this time on his electric guitar.
The echoes of The Witcher in Cyberpunk 2077 are subtle, yet they resonate with fans in profound ways. As the thread of Ciri’s tale interweaves with Geralt’s, and a world with cyborgs and flying ships is revealed, one can’t help but entertain the tantalizing notion of a shared CD Projekt universe. While it might not be as mind-bending as stumbling upon a functional Doom clone, these nods are like hidden treasures, waiting to be unearthed by those who dare to venture deeper into the digital abyss.
