Witcher adventure 'Thronebreaker' launches on Xbox One
A new Witcher story is out.
CD Projekt RED has been on a roll recently. Not only did the team unveil the first gameplay footage from Cyberpunk 2077 after Gamescom 2018, but the studio also released a new Witcher card game. While Gwent left Xbox Game Preview today, another adventure called "Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales" is also available on consoles. As you can see from the gameplay, Thronebreaker is an isometric role-playing game with card battles.
The description says Thronebreaker "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."
The game is currently available for $29.99 on various platforms like Xbox One and PlayStation 4. CD Projekt RED says that Thronebreaker lasts roughly thirty hours and features twenty different endings. Only a few are radically different from the others. There are also 75 different side quests to occupy your time.
If you can't get enough of CD Projekt RED and loved Gwent, then this might be an experience to sink your teeth into. Keep in mind that battles occur through cards. You have to use the right solider at the right time to succeed. Instead of featuring traditional combat, you have to essentially play Hearthstone. That's probably the biggest consideration when it comes to purchasing Thronebreaker.
