CD Projekt Red has released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming Witcher spinoff, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. Thronebreaker, much like the baseline Witcher series, is an RPG adventure set in the world of professional monster slayers and Fantasy politics that has a decidedly European bent. Unlike previous Witcher games, however, players will not be taking on the role of monster slayer Geralt of Rivia this time around. Instead, players take on the role of Queen Meve of Lyria and Rivia.
Thronebreaker will combine the same narrative-driven, high combat RPG elements that made The Witcher series a blockbuster success, with new unique puzzles and card battles. It will also take us to some new parts of the Witcher universe as meve faces off against a Nilfgaardian invasion. Because that’s what Nilfgaard does, honestly.
