Geralt’s great adventures may be over, but CD Projekt isn’t done with the world of The Witcher Schools. Today, the studio announced a new board game in the works called The Witcher: Old World, designed in association with board game publisher Go On Board and headed to Kickstarter in May.
The game is designed for 2-5 players, who will become monster killers for hire after completing their training at one of the famous Witcher schools: Wolf, Viper, Cat, Bear or Griffin. You will have to accept contracts, fight monsters, “face difficult decisions” and perhaps even face warlocks from other schools; after all, you will have to defend the honor of the old alma mater.
This won’t be the first Witcher-based board game to be featured – that honor, as far as I know, goes to the creatively named adventure game The Witcher, which features Geralt and his various friends, and is actually older to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. A digital version is also available, and is currently on sale at GOG for $ 1, if you’re curious. R. Talsorian Games, the publisher of the Cyberpunk RPGs on which CD Projekt’s Cyberpunk 2077 is based, also released a tabletop Witcher RPG in 2018.
There is no indication what the cost of entry into The Witcher: Old World Kickstarter will be, but you can sign up to be notified when it goes live.
