If you have always wanted to see what it feels like to be Geralt of Rivia casting signs, The Witcher: Monster Hunter is the perfect opportunity.

Developed by Spokko_games, The Witcher: Monster Slayer offers players the chance to take their fiend fighting to a whole other level. Following in the footsteps of Pokemon Go, Monster Slayer allows players to get out of the house to track down beasts of all shapes and sizes.

Using signs will be second nature to Witcher fans and in this augmented reality mobile game, you’ll get the chance to put your knowledge to the test when faced with ferocious monsters.

How to Perform Signs in The Witcher: Monster Slayer

Using magical signs when coming head-on with one of the game’s monsters can help you get the upper hand over your opponent. Rather than hacking and slashing at the beast, casting a sign will bring it to its knees much quicker.

To cast a sign, you’ll need to tap the bottom right circle of your screen whilst in battle with a monster. You will see the sign, for instance, the Igni, generate itself until it’s ready to use. Once ready, all you have to do is draw the symbol of the sign onto your screen – Igni is the shape of the letter V – and from there, it will rain down damage to your enemy.

There are five signs altogether that include Igni, Aard, Yrden, Quen and Axii but you are given Igni straight off the bat. Igni is comprised of a pyrokinetic burst that can repel and ignite opponents, as well as start fires.

Enjoy your Monster Slaying adventure!
