Yep, there goes anything I’d call free time, folks. Coming sometime this year. I’ll have to see if CD Projekt RED will have this at this year’s Toy Fair, as I’ll be there looking at stuff to cover. If not, I’ll need to get a detective on the case to find out why. Let’s see now… where’s that Rolodex? Aha. Hmmm…(silly rhyme alert!) I’m feeling a little bit lazy today, so (*flip*)… let’s just see who’s under “A”? Okay, got one (and man, does he work cheap!):
ANY-way, click on below the jump for the press release. If the game is anything close to the source material or games, it’s going to be a tough call what to kill time with this year. Granted, both The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and this board game (which is also coming to iOS and Android devices) will find a home here, so no worries about me splitting my love for either in any directions…
CD Projekt RED, the creator of the critically acclaimed Witcher franchise of video games, and Fantasy Flight Games, a marketplace leader in board game development and publishing, are thrilled to announce their cooperation in publishing The Witcher Adventure Game.
“Fantasy Flight Games has an outstanding connection with board game fans worldwide and is well known for the highest quality of their titles. We’re really excited that we can join the party and expand The Witcher universe in such great company,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD Projekt RED.
Ignacy Trzewiczek’s The Witcher Adventure Game takes players on a journey across the world of The Witcher as they assume the roles of four beloved characters from the books and computer games: Geralt of Rivia, monster slayer; Dandelion, roguish bard; Triss Merigold, cunning sorceress; and Yarpen Zigrin, dwarven warrior. 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.
“We are very pleased to partner with CD Projekt RED on The Witcher Adventure Game. The story and the setting of The Witcher really lends itself to an adventure board game. We’re looking forward to players being able to craft their own narrative during the course of the game,” said Steve Horvath, Senior VP of Communication and Digital Business for Fantasy Flight Games.
