Iconic “Tears in Rain” Blade Runner Scene Recreated in The Witcher 3

Game modders have created many great things over the years, from Thomas the Tank Engine dragons in Skyrim to Furry costumes for Fallout 4, no wait, they’re not the best examples! My point is that the PC modding community loves to go above and beyond to create unique content and that’s even truer today, as modders have recreated Blade Runner’s iconic “Tears in Rain” scene in The Witcher 3!

Deploying all the usual camera tricks and editing you would have expected from the 1982 classic, the scene looks stunning and with the extra Geralt twist on the original script, it’s even more magical that we could have hoped for. It was created using the unpublished version of fan-made tools in W2scene encoder, the Hairworks UI, storyboard editor, environment parameters and more.

Given how hard it is to mod a game like The Witcher 3 in this way, it’s very impressive, and we hope it leads the way for more projects like it in the future, especially if it could lead to the community creating classic movie inspired quest lines, now that would be awesome!

“All footage is ingame! Scene uses (advanced) features from unpublished version of the w2scene encoder and some soon-to-be-published tools. End Music is a snippet from the track “Geralt of Rivia” by Marcin Przybyłowicz from the “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Official Soundtrack”.” said Erxv1 on YouTube.

Check out the video below, and let us know in the comments section which movies you would love to see modded into games like this. Council of Elrond in Skyrim would be a fun one, especially if it branched off into various quest lines based on your class.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
