The Witcher Adventure Game Brings Geralt to the Table(top)
CD Projekt Red has had great success with its monster-hunting RPG The Witcher. In addition to a third entry in the game series coming out soon, Fantasy Flight Games will also be releasing a tabletop adventure game in 2014.
Fantasy Flight’s game allows you to play as four of the central characters from the novels and games. You’ll be able to play as either Geralt, Triss Merigold, Dandelion or Yarpen Zigrin. There’ll be a variety of different quests hunting monsters, missions around the world and more. You’ll have to forge alliances and deal with the other characters you encounter, never knowing who will betray you.
“We are very pleased to partner with CD Projekt RED on The Witcher Adventure Game. The story and the setting of The Witcher really lends itself to an adventure board game. We’re looking forward to players being able to craft their own narrative during the course of the game,” said Steve Horvath, Senior VP of Communication and Digital Business for Fantasy Flight Games in a statement.
Fantasy Flight is no stranger to the gaming world, as it’s already adapted the likes of Civilization and Gears of War into rather enjoyable board games before. The Witcher already lends itself perfectly to a tabletop adventure, so we can’t wait to see what FFG does with the material. Even better, The Witcher Adventure Game will also be coming to iOS and Android later this year. Good news for mobile fans, and those of you who don’t want to worry about having to break out a massive board game to enjoy what Fantasy Flight is working on.
