Publisher CD Projekt Red has today announced that its upcoming location-based monster-slaying The Witcher mobile game, Monster Slayer, will launch across Android and iOS devices later this month, July 21. Those wanting to play on Android can actually pre-register for the game from today, which entitles them to a Kaer Morhen Steel Sword from the start of their adventure that offers a 10% XP bonus on every kill.
For those not up to speed with the game, here’s a synopsis:
The Witcher: Monster Slayer is set long before the story of CD PROJEKT RED’s The Witcher series of games. In a time where monsters freely roam the land in large numbers, the relatively new role of ‘witcher’ has become essential across the Continent. In Monster Slayer, players will see the world around them transformed into the dark-fantasy realm known from The Witcher universe. As a freshly trained witcher themselves, they will engage with location-based gameplay and advanced augmented reality features to track down and hunt bloodthirsty monsters lurking nearby.
Today’s announcement was accompanied by a new trailer, which you can check out below.
The Witcher: Monster Slayer was first revealed almost a year ago. It is actually developed by Spokko, an independent studio that is under the CDPR umbrella.
