The setting for this game is a far earlier time than existing Witcher games, where huge monsters and beasts roamed the continent with impunity. There were also many more Witchers to take care of the problem. You join that cohort of augmented humans with your augmented smartphone to take them down.
There's no firm release date for the game just yet, but it's coming "This Summer" so may arrive sooner than you think.
Sign up on the official site if you want early access.
