Everyone and their brother is looking forward to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but there's another Witcher game heading our way. It's a bit more analog, however, as CD Projekt RED announced The Witcher Adventure Game, a tabletop game developed in cooperation with Fantasy Flight Games. Yes, Geralt of Rivia is setting his sights on the world of tabletop gaming, and he has Triss Merigold, Yarpen Zigrin (a dwarven warrior), and the bard Dandelion along for the ride. Each character has various skills to use and ways to get past obstacles; the choice is yours as to what you utilize. Just like the video game, the tabletop game has quests to go on, monsters to slay, gold to earn, and adventures to find. There is, of course, a tangle of alliances and treachery to sort out, too.
Each character can work together to accomplish tasks, however there can be only one winner when all is said and done. CD Projekt is promising a game that anyone can pick up and play, with easy to follow rules and intuitive mechanics. It sounds like even novice tabletop gamers will have no issue enjoying The Witcher Adventure Game. Veteran players have even more to look forward to, as they can fully immerse themselves in the gameplay and extra challenges.
There's plenty more to go into than I can possibly mention here, so definitely be sure to hit up the source below for all the details. Currently you can sign up for pre-order information about The Witcher Adventure Game, just there's no announced price right now. It's slated to arrive later this year.
