The countdown to late February and the release of The Witcher 3 is on. I know it’s a long way away, but CD Projekt Red, developer of The Witcher series, has, in the words of Ween, “left a little something to help the time go by.”
Cocaine references aside, the Scandinavian developer has just announced The Witcher Battle Arena, an online, multiplayer battle arena game to be released later this year.
Players will gear up for three-on-three battles as a selection of eight characters from The Witcher universe: dwarf Zoltan Chivay, Eithne of Brokilon, The Golem, The Operator, Saskia of Aedirn, Philippa Eilhart, Letho Gulet, and Ivoreth. Developers stress that players’ battle experiences will be balanced and based on skill.
Aside from straight battles, the game will also feature a control point conquest mode.
The Witcher Battle Arena will be using the free to play model. While this is usually used as bait to lure players into paying for additional content, CD Projekt Red was quick to reveal that all content in the game is unlockable through player progression, but the option of paying for content as a means to speed up the process will be available.
The Witcher Battle Arena will be available later this year on iOS, Android, Windows phone, and Windows tablets.
