CD Projekt Red has slapped a release date on Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. The game originally started out as Gwent: The Witcher Card Game’s campaign component, but it’s grown into its own single player role-playing title, and it’ll launch as a standalone game on PlayStation 4 in December.
For those out of the loop, here’s the official description of Thronebreaker from the Polish developer:
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 adventure, 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 powered by the skill-based battle system known from Gwent: The Witcher Card Game.
CD Projekt Red says that pricing will be announced at a later date ahead of release, so it sounds as though it won’t be free-to-play like Gwent.
It certainly sounds interesting though, doesn’t it? You can nab it from the PlayStation Store on the 4th December.
