Engage in Deadly Battles in The Witcher:
CD Projekt RED is very pleased to announce the
launch of The Witcher: DuelMail closed beta, based on the company’s best-selling
PC role-playing game, The Witcher. The Witcher: DuelMail is a completely
free-of-charge next-gen web-browser game that offers depth seldom found in
similar products. The start of open beta is planned for April 7th, with the
final version scheduled for release on May 9th.
The Witcher: DuelMail is centered around battles
between two players digitally incarnated as one of three completely different
character classes. Winning consecutive fights against other real-world people
gains the player experience which allows them to advance to higher levels of
character development, along with gaining new skills and items to use in combat.
Players queue up attacks, magical spells and defensive maneuvers, then send
their challenges to other players, who must create their own counter sequence in
hopes of being the last one standing. In order to join, the game requires only a
PC with an internet connection and a web browser with Flash installed.
What distinguishes The Witcher: DuelMail from a
large number of similar Flash games is the high level quality throughout, which
would usually be found in higher-budget products. The company responsible for
The Witcher: DuelMail’s development, one2tribe Company, has been able to include
spectacular battle visuals with high-quality animations created using
motion-capture technology, as well as extraordinary special effects along with
full sound implementation.
The Witcher: DuelMail is further distinguished by
special events and regular updates that will keep the game alive and constantly
expanding. Besides fighting for the top spot on the game’s ladders, top players
can also expect to collect precious rewards in battle. To avoid feeling rampant
loneliness, players can invite friends via e-mail in order to play together.
