The wait is over: The Witcher video game with real-world exploration (a la Pokémon Go) is now available for download. Creatures to defeat, a multitude of objects to collect, all the charm of the saga created by Andrzej Sapkowski and an invitation to exercise: The Witcher: Monster Slayer promises hours of fun.
Niantic developers innovated in the field of mobile video games to combine reality with virtual worlds. Ingress was his first bet; even though they triumphed around the world with Pokémon Go, the famous game of capture creatures in the real world using your smartphone. Many were the titles that experimented with this mechanic. And now we have the latest proposal: The Witcher: Monster Slayer. Prepare your sword.
Exploration with augmented reality and many monsters
As a sorcerer that he is, the protagonist of the game must lose himself on the roads in search of monsters to kill. As in Sapkowski’s novels, how well CD Projekt Red captured in video games, the dark and mythological setting of the saga of Geralt de Ri
The mechanics of The Witcher: Monster Slayer do not change excessively with respect to Pokémon Go and similar games: the mobile will show on the screen the map where we walk, always adapted to the aesthetics of the saga. As we explore the real world, creatures will also appear in the virtual one; that will have to be won by planning the best combat strategy.
At the beginning we will have the two sorcerer’s swords, the main weapons when facing any adversity (either a character or a creature). What’s more, we can combine small spells, potions, secondary weapons and armor; that we will obtain as we win fights. This combination can be done manually or automatically.
The Witcher: Monster Slayer includes missions, RPG traits in the evolution of the character as well as its equipment, offers a multitude of collectibles and also has the exploration component, key of the type of game to which it belongs. The developers have transferred the setting of the novels and video games well enough to offer an experience that, without being novel, is attractive, especially for those who enjoy everything related to Geralt de Ri
The game is now available for download, the servers are also fully operational. It is free, does not include ads And it does offer in-app purchases to get items and upgrades without the need to collect them.
