About The Witcher: Old World
In The Witcher: Old World you become a witcher, professional monster slayer, and immerse yourself in the legendary universe of The Witcher franchise.
The Old World, years before the saga of Geralt of Rivia, is full of tough choices, and danger that lurks at every corner. The game thrusts players into a monster-infested realm teeming with arcane magic, dark secrets and dangerous places to discover. Bloodthirsty monsters that appeared on the continent after the Conjunction of the Spheres mean you shouldn’t embark on this perilous journey.
Five witcher schools were created. They trained their adepts through brutal regimes, and once fully prepared, these now-recognized witchers set off to explore the land, seeking trouble, adventures and helping others for coin.
The Witcher: Old World sees 1 to 5 players travelling across a vast map, embarking on a masterfully penned quests, encountering and making ambiguous moral choices, fighting monsters – and sometimes brawling with other witchers to defend their school’s honor!
The game lets players construct their own unique decks of cards by choosing from a wide range of abilities: attacks, dodges and witcher combat magic – known as Signs. Through card synergy, players aim to achieve powerful combos as they utilize their watcher school’s hallmark abilities to their full potential.
