Good news for anyone looking to get their hands on The Witcher: Battle Arena, as the game has been soft launched in Sweden. This will be the second mobile game in CD Projekt RED’s series of Witcher games, based off of the fantasy books, following the recently-released The Witcher Adventure Game ($5.99) which launched across a number of platforms. Battle Arena is a free-to-play MOBA for mobile, with three-on-three online battles, with the ability to play against teams of other humans, team up with others to battle bots, or just play AI solo – and that works without being online.
There are eight characters based on characters from the series, including The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings antagonist Letho of Gulet, though protagonist Geralt of Rivia isn’t available to play, at least not yet. The game has been in the works for a while now, with closed betas on Android and on iOS. With the game steadily increasing to a larger audience, this should be worldwide hopefully soon – and we’ll see how the claims that this is “free gaming done right" will truly play out.
