Together with GOG.com, the DRM-free online distributor of all that is good in gaming, we are excited to announce the launch of the closed beta of the board game tie-in to the universe of Geralt of Rivia–The Witcher Adventure Game.
“The moment you give people a chance to play a game so dear to you is always exciting,” says Rafał Jaki, The Witcher Adventure Game Executive Producer, CD PROJEKT RED. “The closed beta is here! Give us your feedback and, most importantly, have fun playing!” added Jaki.
The first batch of participants consists of selected gamers who pre-ordered The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on GOG.com
. Those gamers will be among the first to help test and refine some of the multiplayer components of the upcoming GOG Galaxy service. With the distribution of further invitations planned as the beta progresses, players interested in participating in the testing can still navigate to GOG.com/galaxy and sign up for a chance to participate.
“We’re really eager to hear your feedback, as the closed beta of The Witcher Adventure Game also serves as the first test of the infrastructure and services of the upcoming GOG Galaxy–GOG.com’s DRM-free online gaming platform,” said Piotr Karwowski, VP of Online Technologies, GOG.com.
The multiplayer beta is available on Windows PC and Mac. The full game will include offline single player “VS. AI” modes as well as “hot-seat” multiplayer at launch. The game is scheduled to be released late 2014 in physical box format, and digitally, on Windows PC, Mac, iOS (iPad) and Android tablets.
