CD Projekt Red dates full Gwent: The Witcher Card Game release, and standalone Thronebreaker adventure

Plus: Gwent's visual overhaul shown for first time.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, and related-but-standalone single-player Gwent adventure Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, will be released 23rd October on PC, and then on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One 4th December.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game has been in public beta on PC for a while but there's still one enormous update to come: Homecoming. Homecoming will completely change the visual style, taking the board into three-dimensions and having hero characters stand to the side of play. The three playing lanes will be reduced to two, too, and there will be new mechanics added. The developer diary below offers a glimpse at what Homecoming will look like; watch it, it's seriously impressive.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is the ambitious 30-hour single-player adventure which stands alone from the Gwent multiplayer game. The cards you use there are exclusive to Thronebreaker, although some inspired-by cards will be added to Gwent.

The Thronebreaker story itself is about Meve, the war queen of Lyria and Rivia, but can it reach the dizzying heights of a CD Projekt Red tale like the Bloody Baron from The Witcher 3? I'm going to play it soon and hope to find out.

No pricing for Thronebreaker has been announced.
