Since its inception, GWENT has always enjoyed a passionate North American following. There’s no escaping big names like Swim, WatchFlake and JoeSn0w, who’ve each contributed something to the community. And whilst the name Michael Toryk may not mean anything to you, you may recognise his screen name — NoControl.

They say you find premium muliplayer cards? Are we to take this as you can craft or earn the other multiplayer cards without purchase? I am very curious. Otherwise It looks great. I particularly like the Might and Magic upgrade system as feeling OP is always fun and multiple upgrade options adds extra replayability.

Also the gentleman with the exquisite grey facial hairs speech on choice was great, the production value was top notch.

Dominika , a bit of feedback for the Team: These episodes are quite entertaining, although the background activity in the tavern can, at times, distract somewhat from the interviews. Other than that, very nicely composed! (On a purely technical note, in future, could we simply insert the videos directly into the news post, rather than link to YouTube?)

Special thanks to REDDorigen and Mr. McBride for sharing more fascinating details about the upcoming campaign and its creation! As ever, I and a few of my fellow Blue Guards eagerly anticipate the single-player! Keep up the fine work, RED Team!

Unless I'm very much mistaken, I'm convinced that the man behind the magnificent whiskers is Borys Pugacz-Muraszkiewicz, the English Adaptation Director for The Witcher III. From what little I know of him, Adelbert's philosophical musings are very much in his line.

Omg! I'm going to die from hype
All these hand-drawn graphics feel so nostalgic, I can't wait to play it!

Apart from that, the new card art is insane!!

This was indeed super good news! Orianna is one of my favorite characters

And all that talk about choices, consequences and recommended replays sounds absolutely awesome!

Yes, but we'll like the campaign even better once it releases. No pressure.

And now, another message from a few of the Blue Guards: 'We need Thronebreaker desperately! It's an emergency.' Ay, we live in rather desperate times.

Heh.
Cheers.

So no one caught the part about future campaigns? Apparently this is a NR campaign and other factions might get their own.

Oh, it sure was noted! But since Thronebreaker is still a work in progress, there's more than enough to be hyped about with just it.

Well, not quite no-one. . .
From what I understand, Thronebreaker will be the first experiment, and, if successful, will determine the course of additional campaigns.

What are the chances of it failing?

It's looking more interesting than some AAA RPGs so I don't think it'll do bad. Price might be a big factor, though.

I'm sorry for being off topic, but the few posts above is one of the reasons REDs are considered one of the best devs in the industry.
