Thronebreaker The GWENT Single-Player Gets Release Date
by Dylan Blight
CD Projekt Red have today announced that the long-awaited single-player mode for GWENT, that was recently revealed to be a standalone experience, will be releasing on October 23rd for PC players and December 4th for Xbox One and PS4 players.
“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“
What’s most interesting about the description for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is its mention of ‘narrative-driven exploration’ which may mean we’ll be moving the character we play as, Meve, around the world somewhat, or at least be making decisions in a story that will allow for different outcomes, or as its put ‘exploration.’
Meve is the Queen of two northern realms, Lyria and Rivia, but is facing a Nilfgaardian invasion so sets out on a warpath to stop her enemy.
Not only does the story sound really interesting, but the single-player card battles should be a lot of fun.
On the multiplayer side of things today, CD Projekt Red also announced Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will be coming out of beta and releasing on the same day as Thronebreaker with its biggest update so far, Homecoming (fitting title.)
Homecoming features some huge updates to gameplay but the most significant changes the visual aspect on a whole new level. The board now will feature a design that’s in tone with The Witcher series and your player avatar will be a three-dimensional character that interacts and reacts to the game, and it’ll also be customizable.
Check out the video below for all the details.
