Witcher adventure 'Thronebreaker' shows off more gameplay footage

If you're pumped to jump back into the world of The Witcher with its upcoming spinoff, titled 'Thronebreaker,' developer CD Projekt RED has some new gameplay footage that should stoke that hype a bit more. In the game's latest trailer, we get a quick overview of just some of the challenges players will have to overcome as protagonist Meve fights back against an impending Nilfgaardian invasion.

Thronbreaker: The Witcher Tales is a single player role-playing game that combines isometric exploration with card battles. Players will control Meve, described as the "war-veteran queen" of Lyria and Rivia, as she embarks on a dark quest to crush a Nilfgaardian invasion and pushes up against the dark realities of the world of The Witcher series.

As you'd expect from a CD Projekt RED game, Thronebreaker will give players plenty of freedom to make choices throughout the journey, and suffer their consequences in kind. All told, Thronebreaker is expected to contain around 30 hours worth of gameplay with 20 different endings and 75 sidequests to check out.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is expected to launch on PC on October 23, with a console release scheduled for December 4 on Xbox One. For now, you can snag a preorder for either platform for $30 (opens in new tab).
