The development studio Spokko, a member of the CD PROJEKT RED group, has officially announced The Witcher: Monster Slayer, a free-to-play augmented reality role-playing game based on geolocation for iOS and Android devices, set in the universe of the famous series of Geralt of Rivia.
The Witcher: Monster Slayer takes place before the events narrated in the game series. Monsters roam freely on the earth, the profession of the Witcher has recently begun to develop but has already proved vital for the preservation of the continent. The world will still not hear of Geralt of Rivia for hundreds of years. The player’s goal will be to become an elite monster hunter and rid the world of repulsive beasts.
The goal is to have the player explore the world around, while studying and battling monsters. Of course, the apparitions will also be determined by the time of day and the weather conditions in real life.
Playing will give you the opportunity to create potions, bombs, oils, and monstrous baits, all this to defeat increasingly powerful monsters. As in the perfect style of the saga, however, a Witcher is not a Witcher if he is not equipped with skills and suitable equipment.
Developing your character will be key to being a great hunter. Augmented reality offers a first-person fighting style, the experience will propose primary and secondary missions, which will lead to different paths to become the greatest Witcher ever seen.
While it still lacks a release date, The Witcher: Monster Slayer will arrive soon on iOS and Android.
