    Fallout 2 Easter eggs found in The Witcher 3

    A player has discovered a possible Fallout 2 easter egg in The Witcher 3, which continues the cut story from the 1998 video game.

    Back in 1998, Fallout 2 hit store shelves to critical acclaim and commercial success. Unfortunately, by the time Fallout 2 was released, Interplay Studios was in dire financial straits. As a result, in the 2000s, Interplay sold the rights to the Fallout franchise to Bethesda, which continued to release its own series of games based on this franchise.

    In the second Fallout, the player meets a character named Sulik, who is a possible companion. His backstory was that he was from a village located near the Great Salt Water and was looking for his sister Kurisa. Unfortunately, the quest to find his sister was not included in the game due to lack of time and budget, and had to be expanded upon in the original Fallout 3. It now appears that this storyline could have been completed in The Witcher 3 as a hidden detail in the Isles Skellige.

    In a recent post, a Reddit user Spaced cowboy pointed out similarities between Sulik’s storyline in Fallout 2 and another story in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. In the game, Geralt encounters an unnamed NPC who mentions that he is looking for his sister. The player later encounters a character named Kurisu in the Skellige Islands. She mentions that she lived with her family until she was attacked by pirates who kidnapped her and several others with plans to sell them into slavery. She eventually managed to escape the pirates by taking refuge in a local temple before finding her way home.

    None of this, of course, is an accurate proof. However, it’s a bit of an odd coincidence that the characters have the same names and such similar backstories. Also, Spaced-Cowboy cites an article saying that The Witcher 3 lead quest designer Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz was a big fan of Fallout 2’s storytelling.

    Black Isle Studios closed permanently in 2003. Many developers moved on to Obsidian Studios, which in turn developed Fallout: New Vegas in 2010, which may have been more of a sequel to the first two games than a Bethesda sequel. Unfortunately, the story of Sulik and his sister was never revealed in the game, and it looks like fans will have to be content with what happened in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
