What exactly does Gwent look like when you recast it for a singleplayer RPG? Well, here’s the first 24 minutes of Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales.
Thronebreaker uses an updated version of Gwent to resolve combat, but in between battles the player has an army, money and resources (gold, wood) to manage. You’ll hit random encounters along the way, and there’s some nice artwork and animations throughout.
You can watch the first 24 minutes of the game below, courtesy of YouTube channel Entertainium. It covers the first chunk of the game, including cutscenes, early story battles, basic resource management and the mechanics outside of the Gwent gameplay.
It’s not looking half bad — better than some might have suspected, I’d wager. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales launches on PC on October 23; the game hits PS4 and Xbox One on December 4.
