The Witcher universe is rich with eastern European mythology and monsters, and spans books, video games, novels and more. CD Projekt RED, who created the video games in the series, have teamed up with Fuero Games, to create the MOBA addition to the franchise. The devs are also giving players the chance to help test the new game too.
The Witcher: Battle Arena lets you play as characters from the Witcher universe in MOBA-style combat. This game isn't pay to win, all content within the game can be unlocked by simply playing it. However, if you do want something unlocked more quickly, you can pay - it's up to you.
In a press release Benjamin Lee, Producer for Mobile Games at CD Projekt RED, said, 'we are extremely passionate about games, whether they be for PC, console or mobile devices. The Witcher Battle Arena is our take on the MOBA genre and we are really excited at the prospect of sharing it with the gaming community! We highly value fans of The Witcher, and their opinions have always been paramount in helping us develop a great gaming experience--The Witcher Battle Arena is no exception! Sign up for the soon-to-commence closed beta now and, once you’ve had a chance to play around with it, share your thoughts - we’re really eager to hear what you have to say!' He added, 'it doesn’t matter if you’re new to MOBA games or The Witcher universe, we’ve made a lot of effort to create a fun experience for everyone,'
New screenshots and a gameplay trailer for the game have also been released, which you can check out below.
