The Witcher: Versus (Formerly DuelMail) Launches

CD Projekt RED and one2tribe announce The Witcher: Versus is now live, offering the web-based combat game formerly titled The Witcher: DuelMail. The game suffered a delay to incorporate suggestions from beta testers (story), one of which was apparently to change its name. Here's word:

Warsaw, Poland – July 9 – Pick up your sword and slash your so-called friends into submission in The Witcher: Versus, the web-based dueling game formerly known as The Witcher: DuelMail. In The Witcher: Versus, players can finally fulfill their dreams of challenging a friend or complete stranger to a duel without having to put their real-world lives on the line. The game is free to play at

The Witcher: Versus should be considered a serious hazard to productivity for anyone with computer access at work, due to its “just one more fight and then I’ll quit for today” nature. As a sorcerer, witcher or frightener, players challenge others to head-to-head battles with magic, swords, claws and more at their disposal. Winning a duel earns the player experience and money, which they can then use to upgrade their character’s attributes, learn new skills and buy new weapons in hopes of reaching the upper echelon of the game’s online leader board. The Witcher: Versus will be continually supported in the coming months with special events, competitions and more.

More than 48,000 people played the beta version of The Witcher: DuelMail, and the name was changed in celebration… or something. Just accept it – the name changed, and now The Witcher: Versus has launched with a number of improvements that have been implemented thanks to fan feedback during the beta. The game’s motion-captured animations have been overhauled, background visuals have been enhanced, balance between character classes has been improved, and new visual effects make spells and attacks even more impressive.

So what are you waiting for? Head to and start fighting everyone… and don’t worry about getting arrested.

Played for a bit, but the matching really sucked when I stopped playing (about 2 weeks after it came out). I always had a bunch of people challenge me that were at least 2+ levels higher than me, which makes a huge difference. Couldn't find anyone my own level though.

This was announced on April 1 and I still can't believe this wasn't an April Fool's joke, lol

it's pretty fun...though it seems like a glorified rock paper scissors game

I have not played it yet by the site looks stellar! CD Projekt RED is an incredible developer IMO.
