The Witcher: Monster Slayer is a Mobile RPG Like Pokemon GO
It'll be free-to-play and have quests.
Today CD Projekt Red announced a brand-new iOS and Android game titled The Witcher: Monster Slayer that will work similarly to Pokemon GO, just set within the world of The Witcher. The game is set to launch later this year as a free-to-play mobile game.
The game has been developed and published by Spokko, a member of the CD Projekt Red family, and will allow players to roam the world using the player’s mobile phone’s GPS to explore and discover creatures and more from the universe. It’ll also allow players to use AR to become even more immersed, revealing giant beasts as shown in the below trailer.
Despite being set in the same universe, The Witcher: Monster Slayer is actually set before the events of the video games. It’s also said to feature console-grade visuals as players track, study, and fight monsters both new and familiar. Apparently players can even use time of day and real-life weather conditions to “gain the upper hand.”
With numerous monsters to explore, players will need to prepare for tougher encounters, such as preparing potions, bait, and other items such as explosives. The RPG elements are present, allowing upgrades to the player’s character. There are also quests that are driven by a story, so the game doesn’t seem to be a simple walk and discover experience.
The official website is live and shows off some more screenshots from the game. These screenshots include combat, exploration and the landmarks, a map, a trophy selection screen, and what looks like a quest cutscene in AR.
There is no release date set yet, but a release date is slated to be revealed for both iOS and Android later this year.
