Feature: The devil's in the details

Cyberpunk 2077 release date, trailers, details

Cyberpunk 2077's 50 minute long demonstration was viewable by the public for the first time a while ago and some are itching to find out more about CD Projekt Red's first-person, open-world RPG. We've seen little of it, but we've heard a lot about it via interviews from the developers, and we've even done our best to hack the Gibson to reveal any extra information we…

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales now on Steam too

If you fancied the idea of Gwenting through a singleplayer RPG in Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales but for whatever reason didn't buy it from GOG, voila: the card game is now on Steam too. After debuting on GOG on October 23rd, it hit Steam on Friday, 17 days later. "I've seen headlines spinning Thronebreaker as an RPG in its own right, and I could even…

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is out now

I never would have dreamt that the compelling but much-joked-about card game in The Witcher 3 would become a single-player RPG, but Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a reminder that anything is possible when you believe in the heart of the cards. Released today and exclusive to GOG, Thronebreaker is a major spinoff set in the world of The Witcher, using the supposedly-dwarven card game…

Feature: They finally Gwent and did it

Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales review

Thronebreaker has been taking me for a ride. Fighting monsters and blackclad horsemen in this card-game-sorta-RPG is a bit like being on a bumpy mine cart. You’re going up and down and swiping lots of gold along the way, the ride is smooth then boring then exciting then dull. Sometimes it could use a diesel engine. Or something more environmentally friendly? I don’t know, this…

37 minutes of Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales in card-slinging action

Gwent - Geralt of Rivia's favourite collectable card game - now steers the fate of nations in Witcher spinoff Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. CD Projekt Red have just released a 37 minute walkthrough of the card-RPG, introducing us to its characters, and the tweaked version of Gwent that the game uses to resolve its conflicts. It's genuinely interesting stuff, with the player's deck-building skills tested…

Cyberpunk 2077 augments its team with Dying Light’s PvP crew

CD Projekt Red today announced an interesting partnership today with small studio Digital Scapes, with initial plans for them to work on upcoming mega-budget immersive sim Cyberpunk 2077. Digital Scapes recently made some waves through their work on Dying Light's surprisingly entertaining asymmetrical PvP mode while Techland focused on the single-player side of the game. Tempting as that sounds, the announcement says that Digital Scapes…

The Witcher author demands $16 million “additional payment” from CD Projekt Red

The author of The Witcher novels has delivered a legal demand for payment to game developers CD Projekt Red, amounting to 60 million Polish Zloty (approximately £12.4 million or $16 million).

Developers CD Projekt Red today announced that both the multiplayer Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and its singleplayer story spin-off Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will launch on October 23rd. Gwent has been in public beta for months but…

Feature: Jack into the chat room

Let’s chat about: The Cyberpunk 2077 demo

Alice B: So we have now all seen the Cyberpunk 2077 demo footage. But also the world has! Which is interesting because Brendy mentioned on our Gamescom podcast that, because it was all behind closed doors, it’d be hard for us to compare it to the full game when it actually came out. Brendan: But then they went and released the footage to the public…

Feature: Bigger than genre

Trans representation in Cyberpunk 2077 matters, but not because it’s cyberpunk

Even before its recent public gameplay unveiling, Cyberpunk 2077 was the target of a very particular piece of criticism. Perhaps sparked by the transphobic joke made by the game's Twitter account, many online have been calling out 2077 for presenting yet another future that, despite its overt themes of transhumanism and body modification, falls strictly into the gender binary. Despite the gender diversity already prevalent…

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. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is its new, Gwent-free name, and while obviously related to the free-to-play card game, the company are calling it a lengthy RPG in its own…

Cyberpunk 2077 shows off 48 minutes of shooting and body hacking

There it is. Cyberpunk 2077, the upcoming guns 'n' conversation RPG from the Witcher 3 developers, was unveiled yesterday with a 48 minute demo of man-shooting, drug-huffing, and robot-haggling. This is the same demo that was shown behind closed doors to press at both E3 and Gamescom (I wrote about it back in June). Developers CD Projekt Red are showing it with one giant proviso:…
