Long before Witchers were feared, and outcast beings in the era of Geralt of Rivia, they were respected monster slayers. A key part of a people surviving in a new world where monsters from across a variety of realms had been dumped, and humanity had few protectors. Now, it is time for you to experience this in the newest Witcher game, The Witcher: Monster Slayer.

Designed for mobile devices, The Witcher: Monster Slayer follows in the vein of games like Pokemon Go using augmented reality and location-based game play, you can find monsters throughout the world to battle. Prepare to battle them, by choosing when to go there (weather and time of day), making oils and potions, and studying them to understand, and then confront the foes in first person combat on your phone.

Developed by CDP family member Spokko, The Witcher: Monster Slayer will also feature quests inspired by the video games that help put you into the role of being a monster hunter at this pivotal time in the world's history. As you defeat foes, you can gather trophies that show off your prowess as a monster hunter as well.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer is set to release late this year on iOS and Android, and it will be a free game with in-app microtransactions. How exactly that will work is unknown at this time, as is when the game will release, with the most being a mention of 'soon'.
