Preview of the new story mode for Gwent
CD Projekt Red’s spin off video game Gwent was present at this years Gamescom with an interesting announcement. Since the beginning of development and since the beta opened in may this year has Gwent been a multiplayer online game only. But now the very first story mode has been announced; Gwent: Thronebreaker.
The story is in the Witcher universe as we know it, but our hero’s story is in the time before Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri. We’re now following a war veteran called Meve who has been called up to arms to protect her homeland from invaders. Each battle is of course set in the card game gwent, but with a few twists, and each action you take can affect the story. Even the dialogue and what you answer will have an impact on the story.
Gwent: Thronebreaker is set to release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this year.
CD Projekt Red has some more announcement during Gamescom, but I think this video explains what the next feature is.
