“Lone Wolf AR,” a game that will combine augmented reality with RPG gameplay mechanics, will be featured in Casual Connect Europe Developer Showcase, according to an announcement from developer VisionizAR.
The upcoming game, which is planned for mobile devices, is based on the Lone Wolf “Choose Your Own Path” book series which was created by the late author, Joe Dever. The book series, which started in 1984, went on to sell over 9 million copies worldwide, according to a press release.
Players pick a place of interest in the real world to begin their quest and then select how they wish to resolve each choice and encounter. They will combat a host of fantastical 3D enemies and monsters, brought to life in augmented reality, and even take part in cooperative boss fights with other players.
They’ll fight to protect their Factions, see how their progress impacts the wider world of Magnamund and the Kai Lords, and then return to their Homestead to build and repair their equipment. Currently, Lone Wolf AR is slated for release in late 2019 or early 2020 on iOS and Android phones and tablets.
