Gwent’s singleplayer mode goes standalone as Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales

Announced during an otherwise dull financial results conference streamed on Twitch, CD Projekt Red announced a minor surprise today. Their long-awaited Gwent singleplayer campaign has grown into a separate and self-contained game all of its own.
