CD Projekt RED made a surprise announcement today revealing The Witcher: Monster Slayer. Now, before you get all excited keep in mind that this is not a console game. It is not a Switch game nor is it a PC game. Instead, The Witcher: Monster Slayer is an AR mobile game for iOS and Android.
Following in the footsteps of Pokemon Go and Wizards Unite, The Witcher: Monster Slayer for iOS and Android sees players explore the world around them while slaying… well, monsters. With a heavy emphasis on combat and quests, the mobile game looks to be quite an experience.
The official description reads;
[perfectpullquote align=”full” bordertop=”false” cite=”” link=”” color=”#FF6C12″ class=”” size=”21″]Monster Slayer lets players explore the world around them while tracking, studying, and fighting monsters both new and familiar, using time of day and real-life weather conditions to gain the upper hand. 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.[/perfectpullquote]
The Witcher: Monster Slayer is ‘coming soon’ to iOS and Android mobile devices. We don’t know how much walking about players will do with the current global pandemic but just wear a mask… okay?
