Last week, it was announced by CD Projekt that the franchise is getting its very own AR mobile game. At that time, we really didn’t have a lot of information about the game yet, except for the fact that it would be a location-based AR RPG similar to Pokemon Go.
Now, gameplay for The Witcher: Monster Slayer has been revealed via the game’s official Twitter account.
It’s safe to say that it wasn’t an exaggeration when they described this game to be like Pokemon Go, though. We can see that you also walk around holding your handheld device, encountering monsters along the way which you have to fight.
The monsters are plotted on real-life locations, and during your battle, you have a floating digital sword that you use to either attack or block the enemy’s advances. You will also see health and stamina bars on the screen during battle, as well as buttons that will initiate the Witcher’s abilities.
If you want to take a break from all the vicious fighting, you can also do so. The Witcher: Monster Slayer also has more relaxing activities, such as taking quests from NPCs.
Developed by Spokko, Monster Slayer will also take into account the kind of weather you’re having or the time of day you’re in. In other words, you definitely won’t have the same quarry every day.
With The Witcher: Monster Slayer, you are given the chance to become the Witcher you’ve always wanted to be – without having to undergo the grueling trials, of course.
