Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales – Gameplay Features
EXPLORATION AND ACTIVITIES
From saving a village from a horde of monsters, to looking for treasure hidden among ancient ruins, to scouring for resources to upgrade your army and camp — the world of Thronebreaker is bustling with things to do.
STORY BATTLES AND CHALLENGES
The battles in Thronebreaker utilize gameplay mechanics from GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, custom tailored for storytelling purposes. It’ll be your role as commander to wisely use the unique skills and abilities of your army to lead it to victory.
Between battles and exploration, you’ll train and recruit units, unlock new skills and work on your tactics. And when you’re not strategizing, you’ll be trading resources with merchants, or sharing war stories with comrades.
CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES
Your journey will be full of difficult choices that will influence the state of the world around you. Whatever you decide, you will have to live with the consequences — desertion, betrayal, or even death.
