In case you missed it, it was recently announced that CD Projekt developer Spokko would release The Witcher: Monster Slayer, a new free-to-play location-based augmented-reality mobile video game based on The Witcher video game series. In addition to the announcement, little was revealed about the title, but the developers have offered a sneak peek at the mobile game's gameplay.
The brief sneak peek, which you can check out below, shows off what it looks like to encounter and fighter monsters out in the world as well as a couple of different NPCs. If you've played other augmented-reality video games like, for example, Niantic's Pokemon Go, the basic layout and premise should look very familiar with a little character wandering around on a map in order to tackle spawning critters and other points of interest.
