The next installment in CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher franchise, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, arrives on PC in just under a week on October 23.
Thronebreaker is a bit different than your average Witcher experience; the game lets you experience a whole new RPG adventure centered not on Geralt of Rivia — although he does appear — but on Queene Meve of Lyria and Rivia as she faces off against the empire of Nilfgaard following its invasion of her country.
Today, CDPR offered players a peek at what that experience will be like by releasing a gameplay trailer that provides insight into the game’s story, a look at its mechanics, and an overview of the game world.
To defeat the Nilfgaard empire, players will have to travel far across the kingdom, building alliances and an army. But they must be careful; not everyone is what they seem and mistaking enemies as allies could end in disaster.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a choice-based RPG where choices will have an impact. The game also features a base-building mechanic that is important to constructing and maintaining an army that can defeat Nilfgaard.
Since the game is tied to the GWENT card game, Thronebreaker‘s combat is card based. But the rest of the game is not.
Players will have plenty of opportunities to explore the world and discover different characters and stories, getting a full Witcher experience.
