CD Projekt RED has used Twitch for the gameplay reveal of Thonebreaker: The Witcher Tales, showing the game to be an isometric free-roaming game with combat heavily relying upon Gwent. Cutscenes will play out through beautifully hand-drawn characters that also have a surprising amount of fluidity, almost as if they were three-dimensional models.
From saving a village from a horde of monsters, to looking for treasure hidden among ancient ruins, to scouring for resources to upgrade your army and camp — the world of Thronebreaker is bustling with things to do.
You’ll explore multiple maps while building your army, and customize your very own battle camp. When you’re not gathering or training units to reach new skills, you’ll be trading with merchants or listening to war stories from fellow commanders. Each card you accrue will have an incredibly detailed depiction of the person or creature in full motion, reminiscent of photographs from Harry Potter.
It’s astounding how it started out as a simple update for Gwent, and quickly evolved into a game of its own filled with a fully structured single-player story that’ll have you making impactful choices during unique quests.
The game will cost $29.99, with a PC release date of October 23 of this year. PlayStation and Xbox users will have to wait until December 4 to get their hands on what looks to be an amazing entry to the franchise.
