If you’ve been eager to dive back into the vast world of The Witcher, you’ll get your chance soon enough. Ostensibly, Thronebreaker was meant to be just another card game, but has evolved into an RPG of its own. Your choices have consequences and you’ll need to upgrade your battle camp to improve your units for battles down the road. While it’s still a card game at its core, it looks like a considerably deeper Witcher experience than fans may have expected. Just check out the latest gameplay trailer:
Thronebreaker is a single player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher that combines narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics. Crafted by the developers responsible for some of the most iconic moments in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the game spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms — Lyria and Rivia. Facing an imminent Nilfgaardian invasion, Meve is forced to once again enter the warpath, and set out on a dark journey of destruction and revenge. Throughout the game, players will explore new and never-before-seen parts of The Witcher world, embark on thought-provoking quests featuring rich, multidimensional characters. All while gathering resources to expand their army and engaging in epic story battles.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is set to launch on PCs (via GOG) next week on October 23rd. Console gamers will have to wait a little bit longer when it hits PS4 and Xbox One on December 4th.
