Pre-orders for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales launch alongside new story teaser and official website!
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) — the game is available for pre-order now. 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. Pre-orders for PlayStation 4 in Europe will launch soon.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales comes with these digital goodies:
• Official Thronebreaker Soundtrack
• Digital version of Gwent: Art of The Witcher Card Game artbook from Dark Horse
• Concept art, including the map of Lyria
• The Witcher graphic novel “Fox Children” by Dark Horse
• 2 in-game GWENT: The Witcher Card Game Player Titles
• 2 in-game GWENT: The Witcher Card Game Player Avatars
• 5 premium kegs for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will release on PC via GOG.com on October 23rd, with a console release on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 set for December 4th.
What started off as a fun(read: addictive) minigame in The Witcher 3 is now a full-blown game with a proper story and everything. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales has had its story gameplay revealed and it looks like it might just take over my life when it releases.
The main story has you play as Queen Meve, the ruler of the twin realms Lyria and Rivia. Does the latter sound familiar? It’s because Geralt of Rivia gets knighted by her and is officially given the title “Of Rivia” by the Queen herself. While the focus of the game is on Gwent, the game does have side missions that you can complete. You must also improve your army. All of this is done by the isometric gameplay of the game where you can walk around, explore your environment and meet new people.
The game features over 250 different cards, over 75 side quests that sprawl across the continent and includes places like Lyria, Rivia, Mahakam, Angren and Aedirn. The game will take about 30 hours to beat and will feature 20 different end world states, depending on your choices.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is set to release on October 23rd for PC and will be released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox on December 4th.
