The newly announced single-player campaign for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, will be brimming with content. You can rest assure that the narrative of Thronebreaker will be signature to what we have already experienced from the masterful storytelling team at CD Projekt RED.
According to principal writer Jakub Szamalek, the story campaign of Gwent will take as much as fifteen hours to complete. If anything, Thronebreaker was treated similar to how work was put in for the amazing expansion packs of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
“It’s a pretty long story, and I think text-wise, it’s the size of [The Witcher 3’s DLC] Hearts of Stone,” he told PCGamesN. “It’s a robust story, it’s not just a card game with some text tacked onto it, it’s a huge story with the card game element.”
Thronebreaker was announced yesterday at Gamescom 2017 as the first single-player story campaign for the free-to-play collectible card game. The main plot revolves around Meve, queen of two Northern Realms, who is facing the threat of a foreign invasion. The theme will take players to never-before explored parts of the Witcher universe, dueling in story battles and completing rich story quests.
CD Projekt RED has promised to send out more details in the coming weeks. The developer, though, has confirmed that Thronebreaker will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC later this year. Perhaps we can expect a launch just in time for the holidays.
