In just a week, the augmented reality RPG The Witcher: Monster Slayer has already passed 1 million downloads!
This is massive news for the mobile game. Additionally, the game has also generated over $500,000 in player revenue.
Unsurprisingly, this game has been downloaded most in Poland — the home country of The Witcher franchise. All this data comes from app analyst firm Sensor Tower.
Monster Slayer is being developed by Spokko Games underneath CD Projekt Red. The game is inspired by other AR geolocation titles, such as the titular Pokémon GO.
Although the launch isn’t nearly as big as Pokémon GO’s 10 million downloads, it is still off to a good start.
Time will tell how The Witcher: Monster Slayer will fare in the future. Fingers crossed, it manages to carve itself out a position amongst the other geolocation AR games.
Monster Slayer has a good chance as it offers up unique gameplay. It’s currently the only proper augmented reality RPG experience out there.
Being tied to The Witcher IP is also probably a huge help. Especially if the game can capitalise on the popularity of the Netflix series and other video games.
The developers plan to consistently update the game in the future with events, story content, and more.
