AFK Arena is collaborating with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, bringing in Geralt of Rivia and Yennefer of Vengerberg to the popular idle-RPG. Doug Cockle is likewise reprising his role of Geralt for voice-acted lines as part of the collaboration.
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to work with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt IP! Many of our production team staff, including myself, are big fans of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. For this collaboration, we’ve designed gameplay inspired by the wondrous world of The Witcher, and all of the content is exclusive to AFK Arena. We’re so looking forward to releasing the crossover to our players!”
Don, AFK Arena Developer
Geralt and Yennefer each bring their own fighting styles as adapted from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to AFK Arena. Geralt, a fierce warrior, utilizes a mix of sword-based melee combat and alchemy, while Yennefer, a powerful magic caster, focuses primarily on arcane spells that target groups of enemies. The duo are certainly more than capable of tackling the evils of Esperia, alongside other notable collaboration characters including Joker and Queen from Persona 5, Ezio Auditore from the Assassin’s Creed series, and Overlord’s Ainz Ooal Gown and Albedo.
