CD Projekt Red has just revealed a brand new game set in the world of The Witcher, entitled ‘The Witcher: Monster Slayer.’
Coming to iOS and Android, Monster Slayer is developed and published by CDPR-owned studio, Spokko. The title looks a heck of a lot like a certain mobile game you may have heard of: Pokémon GO! Don’t get me wrong, that’s no bad things, as getting to mix your real life and the world of The Witcher through augmented reality is definitely getting my interest!
The game’s official description explains: “The Witcher: Monster Slayer takes place before the events of The Witcher series of games. Monsters are freely roaming the land in great numbers, and the relatively new role of ‘witcher’ has become indispensable around the Continent. Monster Slayer challenges players to become elite monster hunters, using advanced augmented reality features that transform the real world into the dark fantasy realm of The Witcher.”
Monster Slayer promises to being “console-grade visuals” to the palm of your hand as you track, study and slay monsters in this augmented reality game. You’ll be able to make the most of your skills by using real-world weather conditions and the right time of day to complete your studies.
The description continues: “Preparation is key in order to defeat tougher enemies, as players will need to brew powerful potions and oils, craft bombs and monster bait, and upgrade their character before putting these beasts to the sword and signs in first-person AR combat.
“In addition to battling monsters lurking close-by, the game also contains rich, story-driven quests inspired by other games from the series, taking players on full-fledged adventures that thrust them into the heart of what it means to be a professional monster slayer.”
The Witcher: Monster Slayer is coming to iOS and Android, with launch dates for both versions set to be revealed later this year.
