The Witcher: Monster Slayer Augmented Reality (AR) Mobile Game announces a CD project with a trailer on YouTube. Mobile Games is developed by CD Project’s Spoko, a team that oversees mobile games. The Witcher: Monster Slayer is free to play and is similar to the Pokemon Cove game. The trailer shows a view of how the game works and how it is.
The official announcement trailer, released by the game’s YouTube channel, shows a player exploring the jungle, where he sees a wild spirit called ‘Lesson’ in The Witcher universe. The dynamics of the game have not yet been revealed, but it looks a lot like Pokemon Go. You play as a wizard, and the game uses real-world location tracking and AR technology to show the locations of the monsters they can fight.
According to the CD project, day and real-life weather affect some aspects of The Witcher: Monster Slayer. “Preparation for defeating fierce enemies is important because players must brew powerful drugs and oils, craft bombs and monster bait, and improve their character before placing these beasts on swords and symbols in first-person AR battle,” the studio explains.
Screenshots posted on the official website show first-person battles, trophies of defeated monsters (similar to Gerald in The Witcher game series), a local area-based game map, and side characters. You can buy medicines and other items to help them in their search.
The Witcher: The story for Monster Slayer is based on the Mainline Witcher series, and is expected to focus more on Pokemon Cove.
The timing of this announcement seems a bit strange as it is not possible to leave the house in view of this situation. The CD project can wait until the situation improves to release the game. For now, this is not a release date, it will be announced later this year.
