The Witcher: Monster Slayer is an upcoming free-to-play alternate reality mobile game that allows you to track, study, and hunt monsters from the Witcher universe. The Witcher: Monster Slayer posted an announcement trailer for the game, which seems to play very similarly to Pokémon Go.

In The Witcher: Monster Slayer, you'll have to hunt down monsters from the Witcher world that could be lurking anywhere in your world. The game is being developed by Spokko, a member of the CD Projekt Red family. This augmented reality Witcher game will launch on Android and iOS devices later this year.

Monster Slayer encourages players to get outside and explore the world around them in search of unique monsters. Your hunt will also be affected by the time of the day and real-life weather conditions.

While the announcement trailer itself doesn't say a lot about Monster Slayer, the official website has shared additional information. "Foul creatures roam the vast lands of the Continent — and it falls to those known as witchers to hunt them down," the website states. "Set long before the time of Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher: Monster Slayer is an augmented-reality exploration game that challenges you to become an elite monster hunter. See the world around you transformed into the dark fantasy realm of The Witcher, and explore once-familiar locations now infested with dangerous beasts as you start on the path as a professional monster slayer."

In The Witcher: Monster Slayer, you'll be fighting life-size monsters in first-person mode as a professional Witcher. However, the game requires Witchers to stay on their toes by training themselves, brewing potions and oils, crafting bombs, and selecting the right equipment before starting each fight.

For every monster slain, you'll collect a trophy. The Monster Slayer website also says that players will find both familiar and new beasts roaming the world.
