'The Witcher: DuelMail' Gets Delayed

by Rainier on May 8, 2008 @ 1:33 a.m. PDT

The Witcher: DuelMail, based on its RPG The Witcher, is a free-of-charge web-browser game that centers around battles between two players digitally incarnated as one of three completely different character classes. Originally scheduled to launch May 9, the launch as been pushed back to dedicate some more time to polish elements connected with balance, items and animation.

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.

Duelmail’s premiere planned for this May 9 had to be slightly rescheduled. The team responsible for the final version of the game (one2tribe and CD Projekt RED), guided by the remarks given by the players, decided to dedicate some more time to polish elements connected with balance, items and animation.

CD Projekt RED reassures you that the delay in Duelmail’s premiere will not be long. This time it’s the case of a few days of adding some finishing touches and perfecting elements, which were asked for by the players.

At the same time, CD Projekt RED is not giving up the beta tests, so all the players are more than welcome to continue their duels! Precise information about the final date of the premiere will be given next week. Tomorrow, we will give you details concerning Thursday’s chat with the creators of the Duelmail!
