"Thronebreaker is a single player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher that combines narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics. The game spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms — Lyria and Rivia. 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.
Throughout the adventure, players will explore new and never-before-seen parts of The Witcher world, embark on thought-provoking quests featuring rich, multidimensional characters. All while gathering resources to expand their army and engaging in epic story battles powered by the skill-based battle system known from GWENT: The Witcher Card Game."
Along with the release of Thronebreaker, there is another big thing planned for Gwent – the “Homecoming Update” for the multiplayer part of the game. It is announced as the biggest update in Gwent history which will significantly change the overall gameplay experience. We can expect new boards, animated 3D models of the leaders, new gameplay mechanics and many more. You can see the glimpse of it in the video below:
