The Witcher board game in development

The Witcher is set to launch on an all-new platform, as CD Projekt RED announces The Witcher Adventure Game, a board game adaptation of the popular franchise.

The project is a partnership with marketplace leader Fantasy Flight Games, something CD Projekt RED Head of Studio Adam Bakowski is very pleased with:

Fantasy Flight Games has an outstanding connection with board game fans worldwide and is well known for the highest quality of their titles. We’re really excited that we can join the party and expand The Witcher universe in such great company.

The Witcher Adventure Game, by Ignacy Trzewiczek, is – like it says – a bit of an adventure. There are four playable characters – monster slayer Geralt of Rivia is joined by roguish bard Dandelion, dwarven warrior Yarpen Zigrin and cunning sorceress Triss Merigold. Playing through the game, you’re invited to hunt monsters, take on side missions and interact with unusual characters – all wrapped up in “a web of alliances and treachery”.

We don’t yet have a precise release date for this one just yet, but the game is slated for a world-wide launch some time in 2014.
