The Witcher: Old World has just been announced, and as you might expect it is a board game set in the world of Andrzej Sapkowski's The Witcher. The game is being created in cooperation with Go On Board, a publishing company, and designed by Łukasz Woźniak, the author of board games such as Titans and Valhalla. Check out the blurb below:
The Witcher: Old World is intended for 2-5 people and takes place long before times of Geralt of Rivia. Players take on a role of professional monster slayers who recently completed their brutal training in one of the witcher schools: School of Wolf, Viper, Cat, Bear or Griffin. On their adventures across the Continent, young witchers will face difficult choices, take on contracts, battle monsters — and perhaps find themselves brawling with another witcher in order to defend their school’s honor!
The game is going to be crowdfunded on Kickstarter, which will begin in May 2021. Apparently it won't just be a pre-order platform like some other established brands like to do these days, but an opportunity for players to "have a significant impact on the contents of the game, as well as the stories it features." The full release of the game is scheduled for April 2022 in English and Polish with other language versions currently in negotiations.
For those who would like to keep up to date on what's happening, you can follow the game on Kickstarter and Go On Board's Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channels. If you're a cool cat and don't need no reminders, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
