Preorder Witcher 3? You're Now in the Witcher Adventure Game Beta

First wave of invites going out to people who reserved a copy of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from GOG.

Polish developer CD Projekt Red announced today that a closed beta for The Witcher Adventure Game--the upcoming collectible card game for PC, iOS, and Android--has begun. The first wave of invitations are going out to people who preordered 2015's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt from GOG.com.

Executive producer Rafał Jaki said he hopes players not only have fun with The Witcher Adventure Game, but also share their feedback with CD Projekt Red. The beta will be expanded later on, and you can sign up for a spot by heading to GOG's website right now.

The closed beta for The Witcher Adventure Game also serves as the first test of the infrastructure and services for CD Projekt Red's new digital platform GOG Galaxy, the developer said. Beta testers will help the studio test and refine the multiplayer components of GOG Galaxy.

The Witcher Adventure Game's closed beta will be held on PC and Mac, while the full version launching this fall will be available on those platforms in addition to iOS and Android tablets. The game is not to be confused with The Witcher Battle Arena, a newly announced MOBA set in the fantasy universe.

In addition to the digital versions of The Witcher Adventure Game, CD Projekt Red will offer a physical tabletop game of the same name. In the game, you can play as one of four characters from the Witcher franchise: Geralt, Dandelion, Triss Merigold, and Yarpen Zigrin. The full version of The Witcher Adventure Game will have an offline single-player mode as well as "hot-seat" multiplayer.

From what I read in Gamespot's other article about it and from the video above, it's a board game not a CCG.

A CCG and a MOBA? Oh boy! CCGs were like having microtransactions before there were microtransactions (except there's nothing micro about buying a booster pack for $8)
