CD Projekt Red announce the reveal that Thronebreaker, the single-player campaign for The Witcher themed card game Gwent has been turned into a 30 hour RPG and will now be it’s own standalone title.
Gwent The Witcher Card Game Single-Player Story Campaign is Now a Standalone RPG
Originally Thronebreaker was suppose to follow the war-veteran queen Mever who sets out “on a dark journey of destruction and revenge” due out towards the end of 2017. However, in November last year the developer CD Projekt Red announced it’s delay for 2018 and the scope of the story had changed.
During CD Projekt Red’s H1 2018 financial results conference they shared more news of the Gwent single-player campaign and that there were some significant changes. The biggest change being that Thronebreaker would now be called Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and had developed into a full-scale RPG with 30 hours of content. This title is full of decisions and consequence but still the outcome of Gwent games.
This is a huge change as Thronebreaker: The Witchers Tales will now be a standalone title and will not require players to have the Gwent collectible card game app in order to play.
The launch window has not yet been announced by CD Projekt Red but they have mentioned that the release will be “in parallel” with already outlined Gwent revamp, Homecoming. This update has been shared to realign the vision of Gwent after CD Projekt admit that felt they had “lost sight of what was unique and fun about the game” and will release sometime in Q4 this year.

Thronebreaker: The Witchers Tales is expected to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
