CD Projekt RED is hard at the office on Cyberpunk 2077, but they’re taking us here we are at Geralt’s neck with the woods. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is really a card-battling RPG with 30 hours of story and over 75 side quests. It puts you in command of a military and fans of GWENT ought to be right at home.
You can pre-order the adventure starting today, and there’s a directory of digital items including an artbook, the soundtrack, concept art, a picture novel, plus some GWENT items. All of this seems pretty standard for any digital pre-order, but it’s the things they say about the products that should cause you to stop and wonder.
The co-founder of CD Projekt RED, Marcin Iwinski, throws along the gauntlet along with other companies allowing you know those items will likely be yours, even though you don’t pre-order it. In a very direct statement, he definitely makes the company’s thoughts on the situation crystal clear.
“Pre-orders start later today and Thronebreaker includes some pretty awesome digital goodies. However – and it is advisable to add this – these aren’t limited to gamers who pre-order. With the purchase of our games, everyone offers the same in-game content. No matter in the event you pre-order it or get it after launch. For no reason would like to lure you together with ‘exclusive item’ bullshit. For folks, pre-orders are all about the anticipation and excitement, and – most significantly – showing support for any studios and games you care for. So, if what you see and focus while in the previews you like, we welcome your pre-order with open arms. However, if you require more of their time and want to loose time waiting for reviews, do don’t hurry and buy post-launch – you will not overlook any of the goodies.”
Once again, the corporation goes it’s own way, and we hope these kinds of crazy thinking catches on on the market, but don’t hold your breath. If it’s enough to sway everyone wallet, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will release on December 4th for $29.99 or?25.89.
