Already played through The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt more times than you can count? Bested Gaunter O’Dimm at his own game, and played Gwent up and down Skellige? Lucky for you, you can now craft your own adventures in the world of Geralt and friends: The Witcher Role-Playing Game is finally headed to print, three years after it was first announced.
The Witcher Role-Playing Game is created by R. Talsorian Games, and features the same design team as their tabletop RPG Cyberpunk 2020. That RPG serves as the inspiration for Witcher video game developer CD Projekt RED’s upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, so it seems like the two companies seem to be working closely with one another. Here’s a preview of a couple pages in the core rulebook:
PC Gamer had a few more details about the upcoming tabletop RPG. We don’t know much about exactly how the game will play, but it uses the Fuzion RPG system that many of R. Talsorian’s other releases use. The game is set between The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and some modulation exists in the story depending on which version of events the DM wants to follow. The Witcher Role-Playing Game will look to replicate the “adult fairy tale” world of the books and games, including allowing players to create the mutant monster hunters.
Tell your DM to start working on their Geralt of Rivia voice; The Witcher Role-Playing Game will be available at GenCon this August. If you can’t make it out to Indianapolis, it is expected to head to store shelves (or for purchase online as a PDF) not long after. If you’re sick of the world of Geralt and company but need a new tabletop RPG, R. Talsorian is also planning to release an updated edition of Cyberpunk 2020 before the end of the year, entitled Cyberpunk Red.
