The Witcher Battle Arena, has players come into a “fast, fun, and accessible MOBA game” that allows players to enter into the Witcher universe where there is a war happening between the kingdoms of the north and the Nilfgaardian Empire, which breaks the land apart. Old alliances are destroyed and friendships have perished, which has players search for a new destiny during this war, which includes complex tactics and skill-based strategies during each battle. Though if you seek for glory outside of this war, in order to get the upper hand, players will end up at the Nilgaardian Arena, where gladiators fight one another to the death, in order to get gold and prizes, plus the emperor’s respect.
The Witcher Battle Arena, features no pay-to-win environment, in order to have equal opportunities in fighting between other players, and you will only be able to unlock every in-game content through gameplay. Players will have a choice of six different heroes for battle arena, who are from the Witcher series, which you will see Eithne of Brokilon, sorceress Philippa Eilhart, The Golem, Iorveth, the kingslayer Letho of Gulet, The Operator, Saskia of Aedirn, and the dwarven brawler Zoltan Chivay.

In the Arena, players will need to “capture and hold three conquest points in short, intense, and action-packed skirmishes. The intuitive system of character progression allows you to create player-tailored character builds and unique item configurations to surprise your friends and stagger your foes.”
