The Witcher: Monster Slayer augmented reality (AR) mobile game has opened registration for Android users. Developers Spokko Games, which is part of CD Projekt, said the game will arrive on Android devices with a phased early access launch later this year. CD Projekt announced in August 2020 that they were developing an Android and iOS version of their hit game Witcher. However, the game’s gradual launch is only happening for the Android platform at this time. The Witcher: Monster Slayer will have gameplay similar to Pokemon Go.
The trailer for The Witcher: Monster Slayer doesn’t say much about the gameplay but it borrows a lot from the eponymous game series it is based on. CD Projekt’s mobile development team, Spokko, has announced that the game will be free for all mobile users. There has been no information on whether there will be any in-app purchases or whether it will feature advertising as a source of revenue for the game. Since the developers are only releasing an access version Anticipated, we can expect the game to change a bit once the final version is released later. In addition, there is no information on the release date of the final version.
