While waiting for that current-gen update from CD Projekt Red for The Witcher 3, you might fancy this Pokemon Go style game from the same developers, entitled The Witcher: Monster Slayer.
Coming out on July 21 for iOS and Android devices, The Witcher: Monster Slayer is an augmented reality based game that will take you through epic quests inspired by The Witcher series. The game will feature battles against gigantic monsters, crafting, and weather systems that will make your adventure a treacherous one.
