Gwent: The Witcher Card Game went into beta in 2017 on PlayStation 4. A single-player mode for the game was then quickly announced and eventually released last year in December in the form of Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. We enjoyed the game a lot in our review stating “The writing alone is worth the price of admission”.
