Crowdfunding Campaign for The Witcher: Path of Destiny Is Now Underway, Hits Funding Goal in 4 Minutes
What sort of black magic is this!?
The Witcher: Path of Destiny is a brand new board game from Go On Board, creators of The Witcher: Old World and other games. Tailored for 1-5 players, the title will see participants take control of some of the greatest heroes from The Witcher series of games — including Geralt, Ciri, Yennefer, Vesemir, and Dandelion — and relive iconic stories from all around the Continent, with a twist! As players engage in board- and card-based gameplay, they may choose to make different choices and diverge from the original path to explore various “what-ifs”. Combining immersive storytelling in a rich and dark fantasy world with easy-to-learn yet deep mechanics that integrate tableau-building, hand management, and strategic thinking, Path of Destiny will offer a wholly new experience within the The Witcher franchise.
Participation in the project’s Gamefound campaign is open to anyone wishing to contribute. The Go On Board team has prepared a variety of options for pledging support, as well as numerous stretch goals — when unlocked, they will influence the game’s content. Several pledge options also entail receiving the game prior to its retail release in either a standard or deluxe variant, with the latter including all content featured in the standard edition, as well as everything unlocked during the crowdfunding campaign and exclusive deluxe edition goodies.
Go On Board and CD PROJEKT RED’s prior collaboration has seen The Witcher: Old World funded in record time, raising a total of €8.5M and becoming one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns for a board game ever. Following the campaign, the game was released in retail worldwide in 17 language versions, selling 150K copies of the base game and nearly double that including the game’s expansions.
