'The Witcher: Versus' witches iPhone soon


The Witcher: Versus is a browser-based and mobile MMO spun off from CD Projekt's RPG series, in which players create custom characters, complete quests, and take part in duels against other players. And now, thanks to the recently acquired Chillingo and developer one2tribe, it's going to be an iOS game as well.

Just like the other versions, players of the iPhone/iPod Touch game will be able to choose a Witcher, Sorceress or Frightener to level up and equip. Lots of leveling will be necessary, because the game features cross-platform play with the other versions, whose players have a significant headstart. The iOS version will be out "soon."
