CD Projekt RED has just announced that Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, a brand new adventure set in the world of The Witcher, is coming to the PC on October 23rd. Now while some will drool all over their screens since this is a new The Witcher game, we strongly suggest tempering your expectations.
Thronebreaker is described as 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. Players will follow the story of battle-hardened queen Meve as she takes up arms against the invading Nilfgaardians. Players will build an army, embark on quests, and discover captivating new stories crafted by the developers responsible for some of the most iconic moments in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
CD Projekt RED has not released any in-game screenshots so we don’t know whether this will feature visuals comparable to The Witcher 3 or whether it will be a more casual offering like Gwent (my guess is the latter as otherwise we’d be bombarded with screenshots). Hell, there isn’t even an official trailer for this game.
So yeah, while CD Projekt RED describes it as a single player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher, you should not expect anything ground-breaking as the original The Witcher 3 game or the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077.
