The Witcher: Monster Slayer is a game similar to Pokémon Go, except instead of dealing with friendly pocket monsters, players face off against a much deadlier and murderous monster variety. Android players can pre-register for the game’s soft launch now on the official Witcher website, which can grant them early access to Monster Slayer.

Witchers use the augmented-reality exploration elements of the game to walk around their real life neighborhoods, encountering fantasy beasts and enemies with RPG-inspired combat. Between battles, players can brew potions, craft bombs, and admire their trophies.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer is due to release later this year on Android and iOS with a free-to-play model.
