The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood And Wine expansion comes with three possible endings – here’s how each one plays out and how to achieve them. The Witcher began as a book series by author Andrzej Sapkowski, which follows Geralt of Rivia. Geralt is a witcher, who are monster hunter’s endowed with magical abilities. The book series was adapted into a Polish movie in 2001 called The Hexer, which was followed by a 13-episode TV series of the same name. Both were widely hated by the fans and the author himself.
Faring much better was the video game series starting with 2007’s The Witcher. The story found an amnesiac Geralt tasked with finding a cure for the King’s cursed daughter and struggling to remember his own past while setting off on an open world adventure. The first game was a success, but The Witcher 2: Assassins Of Kings is when the franchise really came into its own, with a fleshed out fantasy world and some great characters. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from 2015 only cemented the popularity of the series, refining what worked about the first two titles whilst adding new gameplay elements.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt would receive two expansion packs with Hearts Of Stone and Blood And Wine, with the latter serving as a farewell to Geralt. While Henry Cavill (Mission: Impossible – Fallout) will play the character in Netflix’s forthcoming The Witcher series, Blood And Wine is intended to be the character’s final outing. With that in mind, players can earn a number of different Witcher 3: Blood And Wine endings, so let’s look at each one and how they can be unlocked.
The Reconciliation Ending
The plot of The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine finds Geralt heading to sunny Toussaint after being offered a job by Duchess Anna Henrietta, the ruler of the small duchy. The story gets ever more complex from there with murder, conspiracy and various monster hunts, but the best ending of the game involves reuniting Anna with estranged sister Syanna.
To earn this ending, players must find Syanna during The Night Of The Long Fangs quest, obtain the ribbon from the flint girl in Beyond Hill and Dale, read all diary entries and select any option relating to forgiveness when talking with Syanna.
The Syanna Dies Ending
The other Witcher 3: Blood And Wine endings involve a lot of death, so neither outcome is desirable. For the Syanna option, Geralt must seek her out during The Night Of The Long Fangs quest but not take the magic ribbon from the flint girl, which leads to Syanna’s death by the vampire Dettlaff.
The Anna And Syanna Both Die Ending
Easily the bleakest of The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine endings, this finds both sisters dead and Toussaint left in chaos without a ruler. For players who love a dark ending, this is earned by pursuing the Unseen Elder during The Night Of Long Fangs quest and not speaking to Syanna during Pomp and Strange Circumstance. With no talk of forgiveness, this leads to her murdering Anna during the trial and being killed herself.
Of course, being The Witcher franchise, the choices are a little more complex than simply good or bad but reuniting Anna and Syanna is considered the best outcome. The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine’s final scene finds Geralt back at his estate in Corvo and being visited by either Yennefer, Triss, Ciri, or Dandelion, depending on player’s choices in the main game.
