Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and the Independent Gwent Thronebreaker campaign: The Witcher Tales will be launched October 23 on PC and December 4 on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Announced by CD Project RED this week on Twitter.
Thronebreaker takes players on new adventure, in a game where battles are fought in Gwent format.
The Gwent collective card game has been open beta on all platforms for a long time, and are now getting its final launch – along with a huge overhaul of the experience. In the comprehensive Homecoming update, released simultaneously with the full version, the developer introduces a bunch of visual innovations to both the cards and the game board.
In the video at the bottom of the article, CD Project RED gives a taste of what players can expect from Gwent: Homecoming.
The free-standing Thronebreaker campaign was originally built into Gwent, but grew so great that the developer chose to deliver the whole thing in a separate package. The game takes on a whole new story from The Witcher universe, with new areas, characters, missions to solve and of course Gwent battles.
In total, CD Project RED promises about 30 hours of content in Thronebreaker. You do not need to own Gwent to play, but unlike the original card game you need to open your wallet to get the campaign. How much Thronebreaker will cost, the developer has not yet revealed.
