Early last month, CD Projekt Red announced The Witcher Battle Arena for mobile devices, and this week they’ve unveiled the first gameplay trailer for the game. The Witcher Battle Arena is a multiplayer online battle arena game (MOBA) in a similar vein to League of Legends or Dota 2, the two major heavyweights in the genre, but set in the Witcher universe. The new trailer looks really slick, check it out.
Admittedly, I’m not a huge MOBA player, nor am I particularly familiar with any of the many Witcher games or lore, but I’m definitely a fan of good video games and The Witcher Battle Arena looks like it’s going to be a good video game. I also think it’s a good thing it’s built from scratch for mobile, as opposed to being a port or something. That’s a big reason Fates Forever, pretty much the only other MOBA on mobile, was able to turn out so well.
If you’re on Android, you can participate in the closed beta for The Witcher Battle Arena, which will be starting soon. Otherwise, kick back and relax as the game should be hitting iOS, Android and Windows phone at some point before the end of the year.
