The Witcher: Monster Slayer will be Pokemon Go monster hunting version

The Witcher is going to launch a mobile game, which is considered as another verson of Pokemon GO. However, instead of going to catch lovely creatures, in The Witcher: Monster Slayer you will play the role of a Witcher and confront dozens of ferocious monsters.

After the adventures of Geralt of Rivia have ended in the trio of main titles The Witcher, CD Projekt Red has been making moves to fully exploit this hot brand. Before that, we had the Gwent card game released right after The Witcher 3. Now, the fascinating adventures of these monster hunters will reappear on mobile platforms with The Witcher: Monster Slayer.

Although there have been previously leaked rumors about the mobile game project set in The Witcher, few people expected The Witcher: Monster Slayer to be built on an AR structure similar to Niantic’s Pokemon GO.

Specifically, in The Witcher: Monster Slayer, gamers will transform into a witcher, adventure in the fantasy world built entirely on map data, weather, real-time time. However, the game will not bring bright colors like Pokemon GO, but will be very dark and always create a sense of constant danger. These are very familiar feelings of The Witcher series.

You will have to study the weaknesses of different types of monsters, find the best way to destroy them with both the skills and the Witcher’s unique support tools (such as bombs, chemicals, bait types. lure …).

The most difference of The Witcher: Monster Slayer is that it focuses more on fighting, not simply wandering around and catching monsters. This will be an important detail to separate The Witcher: Monster Slayer from games of the same genre. Because as we all know, when Pokemon Go first launched it was completely about catching animals, but the combat was not until later started being included.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer will be released for free on iOS and Android, however, CD Projekt Red has not announced a specific date.
