CD Project Red today announced The Witcher: Old World, a new board game from publisher Go on Board set in the world of The Witcher. The new board game, designed by Łukasz Woźniak (Valhalla, Titans), is meant for 2-to-5 people and, as the name implies, takes place long before the time of The Witcher protagonist Geralt of Rivia. The new board game is set to hit Kickstarter in May and then release in April 2022 in both English and Polish.
"Players take on a role of professional monster slayers who recently completed their brutal training in one of the witcher schools: School of Wolf, Viper, Cat, Bear or Griffin," the official description of the upcoming board game reads. "On their adventures across the Continent, young witchers will face difficult choices, take on contracts, battle monsters — and perhaps find themselves brawling with another witcher in order to defend their school's honor!"
The Witcher: Old World board game is coming!
Created in cooperation with GO ON BOARD, the game will ask players to take on a role of witcher adepts and explore the monster-infested Continent from times long before Geralt of Rivia.February 10, 2021
As noted above, The Witcher: Old World is set to kick off its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign this May with a release currently scheduled for April 2022.
