Witcher adventure 'Thronebreaker' hits Xbox One in December

CD Projekt RED has been on a roll recently. Not only did the team unveil the first gameplay footage from Cyberpunk 2077, but the studio is also releasing two games this year. Gwent has been in a beta state for months now, but it's finally launching as a proper release. On October 23, 2018, PC users will get to play the final build. Xbox One and PlayStation 4 owners will have to wait until December 4.

That's not all though. On October 23 — and December 4 for consoles — CD Projekt RED will release another game tied to Gwent called "Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales". According to sources, Thronebreaker is an isometric role-playing game with card battles. According to the developer, "the game spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms. Facing an imminent Nilfgaardian invasion, Meve is forced to once again enter the warpath, and set out on a dark journey of destruction and revenge."

It's unclear how the game will play because no gameplay footage was provided. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. However, the fact that it's from CD Projekt RED definitely makes it special. The studio is known for pushing the boundaries of storytelling through meaningful quests. Hopefully Thronebreaker will carry on this tradition when it launches in a few weeks.

  • I hoping they'd make a RWBY game soon.
  • Sad how this site degenerated into marely an adds site. And the reason? Microsoft killing it's mobile system.... How microsoft destroys everything with just a decision.
  • I agree the ads are bad, but... Lolwut?
  • Ah Meve of Lyria, who gave Geralt his title "of Rivia" when he was knighted after the Battle for the Bridge
  • Well that is a nice surprise, hopefully the game is light on visuals so I can run it on my tablet.
