Play a pair of Witch­ers

PS4 gets dealt a dou­ble dose of Gwent

PlayStation Official Magazine (UK) - - THE BIG 10 - Gwent re­leases along­side Thronebreaker on PS4 on 4 De­cem­ber.

08Any­one who spent half of their triple-digit hours in The Witcher 3 im­mersed within the card game Gwent will have al­ready been hit­ting up the free Gwent beta on PS4. On 4 De­cem­ber it comes out of beta… along­side a brand-new, chunky Witcher ad­ven­ture.

Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the full re­lease of Gwent is Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, a brand-new RPG set within the world of The Witcher, us­ing Gwent as the bat­tle sys­tem. The story cen­tres around Meve, queen of the North­ern states of Rivia and Lyria, as she comes up against a Nil­f­gaar­dian in­va­sion, and of­fers around 30 hours of story con­tent, tons of quests, and a swathe of end­ings. If you’re less in­ter­ested in play­ing on­line, it’s a su­perb op­tion, of­fer­ing a dis­tinct sin­gle-player Gwent ex­pe­ri­ence.

Build­ing on the me­chan­ics in­tro­duced in The Witcher 3, the Gwent card game in both Thronebreaker and the full stand­alone Gwent re­lease of­fer a meatier ex­pe­ri­ence than the one found there. No mat­ter what type of Witcher fan you are, or if you just like to dive into a new card game, Thronebreaker and Gwent are look­ing like a good deal of fun.

Gwent was a sur­pris­ingly ad­dic­tive as­pect of The Witcher 3.

Just like in all ma­jor wars, bat­tles are en­acted us­ing a deck of cards.
