If you loved Gwent in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, then this is the game for you. This spin-off brings card-based combat to The Witcher series and follows the Meve, the queen of Lyria and Rivia, two of the northern realms, before the events of the first game. She is forced to take up arms again and defend her kingdoms when they are threatened by invasion.
While stylistically different from the rest of the series, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales equals its predecessor with its writing and storytelling. It expands on the lore of the series, and new regions never explored before are accessible for the first time. Match this with the engaging and sometimes difficult puzzle card-based battles, and you’ve got yourself an adventure worthy of standing alongside CD Projekt Red’s great main series.
