The fashion for games in the style of Pokemon Go has already passed, forgotten, and gradually began to return. First, the Harry Potter universe got its own Wizards Unite, and now CD Projekt Red arrived with The Witcher: Monster Slayer.
The Witcher in Augmented Reality
The Witcher: Monster Slayer will allow gamers to become witchers who fight bloodthirsty monsters from the universe of the same name. Like Pokemon Go, the game uses augmented reality, so you will have to look for chimeras on the streets of your city. It is unlikely that they will allow themselves to be caught, so they will have to arm themselves with a sword and elixirs and fight.
The battles will take place in the first person. According to the developers, for a successful hunt you will have to train your fighter, prepare potions and oils, create bombs and use the correct equipment. Defeated monsters will be allowed to add to their collection … More precisely, their heads.
For the fans, I note that The Witcher: Monster Slayer takes place before the birth of Geralt of Rivia. According to the plot, the world only experienced the conjugation of spheres, which gave rise to monsters. Witchers came to protect people, and the player will be one of the first. According to the developers, business will not be limited to catching monsters, and gamers will receive story quests.
The Witcher: Monster Slayer will be out by the end of 2020 on Android and iOS, with developers from Spokko, a studio from the CD Projekt family.
