CD Projekt Red Announces ‘Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales’
Just when you think CPR’s focus has been entirely on Cyberpunk 2077, they go and throw a curveball at us. CD Projekt Red have announced the next entry into the world of The Witcher. Thronbreaker: The Witcher Tales takes place in the same universe as Geralt of Rivia. At its core, Thronebreaker’s mechanics are based off of the successful Witcher card game, GWENT. Don’t let that fool you though, as there are more than 30 hours of story with over 75 side quests. Check out some more information below!
About Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales:
CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announce the launch of pre-orders for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales — a new adventure set in the universe of monster slayer Geralt of Rivia. “Thronebreaker is almost here and we couldn’t be happier, ” said Marcin Iwiński, co-founder, CD PROJEKT. “What started as a single-player adventure for a multiplayer card game quickly outgrew the original concept and became a game in its own right. Thronebreaker is a proper Witcher tale, with more than 30 hours of story, over 75 side quests, and — at the same time — a game that lets you lead an army into previously unexplored places in the Witcher universe. And all of this is powered by story-driven battles based on the card battle mechanics of GWENT.”
“Pre-orders start later today and Thronebreaker includes some pretty awesome digital goodies. However — and I think it’s important to add this — these are not exclusive to gamers who pre-order. When buying our games, everyone gets the same in-game content. Doesn’t matter if you pre-order it or buy it after launch. We don’t want to lure you in with ‘exclusive item’ bullshit. For us, pre-orders are all about the anticipation and excitement, and — most importantly — showing support for the studios and games you love. So, if what you see and read in the previews appeals to you, we welcome your pre-order with open arms. However, if you need more time and would rather wait for reviews, do take your time and buy post-launch — you won’t miss out on any of the goodies, ” Iwiński adds.
Thronebreaker suggested retail price is $29, 99 (or €25, 89). Details regarding the offer are available on the game’s newly launched official website — witchertales.com — which also houses additional information about the tale’s setting, characters, and gameplay.
