GWENT story campaign and esports series announced

CD Projekt Red has announced that a story campaign and an esports series are coming to GWENT. Currently in open beta, GWENT will see its first story content later this year.

Dubbed Thronebreaker, the campaign is described by CD Projekt Red as follows.

Return to the world of The Witcher in GWENT: Thronebreaker — a single player story campaign which spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms. Facing an imminent invasion, she is forced to once again enter the warpath, and sets out on a dark journey of destruction and revenge.
