The Witcher board game revealed, tablet version also in the works

CD Projekt Red expanding fantasy universe with new tabletop game and digital version for iOS and Android tablets.

by

CD Projekt Red today announced The Witcher Adventure, a new 2-4 player board game that will be published by Fantasy Flight Games. A digital version for iOS and Android tablets is also in the works. The board game launches sometime this year, while the mobile iteration is slated as "coming soon."

The Witcher Adventure was designed by board game designer and writer Ignacy Trzewiczek. As part of the game, you'll be able to play as one of four characters from the Witcher franchise: Geralt, Dandelion, Triss Merigold, and Yarpen Zigrin.

"A variety of quests invite players to hunt monsters, earn gold on dangerous missions, and interact with the characters they meet in a web of alliances and treachery," CD Projekt Red said about the board game.

More information about The Witcher Adventure Game is available at its newly launched website.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt launches later this year for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. It is the final entry in Geralt's story, but not necessarily the last game in the series. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

I heard the resolution of the board game is higher than Witcher 3 on Xbone.

I'll get the tablet version for my ipad, just cause I got a decent itunes gift for Christmas and I can't figure out how to spend the money.

I wonder how many die-hards of the computer versions of the game would get these.

By the way, Fantasy Flight Games has been doing partnering work with many other IP-holders. It does most of the busywork, so I suppose that you don't have to worry that CD Projekt resources would be taken away from the video games.

I'd try to make a joke about reenacting the game's sex scene, but I'm not gonna go into that.

It looks cool. I doubt I have the right sort of friends to play this with though.
Maybe one day :(

@Monsterkillah The board game version will most likely cost ~$60.  That's kind of becoming the standard for these types of boardgames.

@Hammershock6 That's not true Hammershock, there's tons of people out there who still play board games. Just have a look around Boardgamegeek and find a game group near you. The industry is in a huge renaissance right now and The Witcher game looks great!

@pohmanCyberpunk 2077 is in very early phase, so no screenshots. CDPR is now fully focused on new Geralt's adventures both in development and marketing area. Situation will change after TW3 release.

@meatz666It's higher than the PissPoor and PC too, because it's not viewed on a screen but in real life.

@Gelugon_baatCDPR's resources or not, it's not like they gonna release an unfinish game anyway.  There's even no release date for TW3 so they can take as much time they want to develop and polish the game and release when it's ready which they have said.  also they aren't controlled by a publisher so there's really no reason for anyone to worry about it.

@hadlee73 Chits - yes (but not as many as basic Arkham Horror), but the game will take you 2 hours max. More likely it will be 90 minutes. Yes, I'm serious. ;)

@pyro1245These days, I actually prefer a board game with friends over a video game.

Come (EDIT: pun ~NOT~ intended) to think of it, the first Witcher game title had some peculiar "collectibles", hadn't it?

@Poodger @pyro1245 I'm getting the same way.  Gone are the days where four friends can get together and play a couch co-op videogame (let alone 2 player split screen these days), instead i've moved onto playing awesome board games instead.

@meatz666 PS4, doesn;t seem fair for JUST the XBone to have a derogatory nickname.
