The Witcher: Monster Slayer is a Pokemon Go-style game for Witcher fans

Well, this sounds like fun for Witcher fans.

Spokko, a member of the CD Projekt Family, has announced The Witcher: Monster Slayer — a free-to-play, augmented reality, location-based RPG for iOS and Android mobile devices set in The Witcher universe.

The title takes place before the events of The Witcher series and features monsters "freely roaming the land in great numbers."

In it you will kill monsters in order to become an elite monster hunter, using augmented reality features that transform the real world into the "dark fantasy realm of The Witcher."

Here's more:

Featuring console-grade visuals, Monster Slayer lets players explore the world around them while tracking, studying, and fighting monsters both new and familiar, using time of day and real-life weather conditions to gain the upper hand.

Preparation is key in order to defeat tougher enemies, as players will need to brew powerful potions and oils, craft bombs and monster bait, and upgrade their character before putting these beasts to the sword and signs in first-person AR combat.

In addition to battling monsters lurking close-by, the game also contains rich, story-driven quests inspired by other games from the series, taking players on full-fledged adventures that thrust them into the heart of what it means to be a professional monster slayer.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer is coming to iOS and Android, with launch dates for both versions set to be revealed later this year.
