Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales Tracking Thread

Greetings, all!
In this thread you may find all officially released information regarding the single-player campaign, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. In order to keep the information clear, the topic is closed. However, feel free to discuss anything posted here in a separate topic within the Thronebreaker sub-forum.

As more details are revealed, I'll be updating the post. (If anyone wants to share something about the campaign, or has a suggestion, please, contact me via Private Message, and I'll review it for inclusion on the list. However, please, be aware that leaked and data-mined content is not permitted on the Forums.)

All the best,
~Riven.
What is it?
Thronebreaker is a new, story-driven campaign, set in the world of The Witcher, written by the same team who brought us The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. As in that game, players' choices will determine the outcome of the tale.

Where's Geralt? Who's the protagonist?
Step aside White Wolf. A new heroine, Queen Meve of Lyria and Rivia -- who knighted the famous monster-slayer -- will lead the adventures. (Although a character in the original books by Andrzej Sapkowski, this will be Meve's first appearance in a CDPR game.)

How does Gwent fit into the story? What will it be like?
As leader of her faction, Meve must explore the land in quest to defend her queendoms, gathering items, resources, and allies, while confronting foes along the way. Battles will take the form of specially-tailored card rounds, with unique unit and character cards.

Will the campaign cost real money, or can I buy it with Ore, the in-game currency?
Thronebreaker will cost real money. See GOG and Steam for details.


How long is the campaign?
Approximately 30 hours or more, depending on players.


Do I get anything special for buying the campaign?
Yes, in addition to the story, players will receive 20 Thronebreaker-inspired cards, which they can use in their on-line, multiplayer collection.

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales comes with these bonus items:
  • Concept art, including the map of Lyria
  • The Witcher graphic novel "Fox Children" by Dark Horse
  • 2 in-game GWENT: The Witcher Card Game Player Titles
  • 2 in-game GWENT: The Witcher Card Game Player Avatars
  • 5 premium kegs for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game
  • Official Thronebreaker Soundtrack
Unlock 20 cards (standard versions) for use in GWENT: The Witcher Card Game and search for their exclusive premium versions during your travels in Thronebreaker.
Note: Standard versions of the 20 cards can also be crafted directly in GWENT: The Witcher Card Game.

When will Thronebreaker release?
It's available now!

A highly informative -- and entertaining -- preview of some of Thronebreaker's features may be viewed in the second episode of A Round of Gwent:

A few points of interest:
- The world maps are hand-drawn by CDPR's talented team of artists.
- The story of Thronebreaker takes place somewhere between the events of the books and the games, during the Second Nilfgaardian Invasion.
- Multiple play-throughs will be possible, since different choices will result in branching, varied stories.
- Players can build their armies at their leader's camp, a base where they can invest resources to construct facilities and train units.
- Loot, side-quests, and secrets await intrepid explorers.
