CD Projekt Red’s Gwent: The Witcher Card Game has been in open beta since early 2017, but it will be out of beta by the end of 2018. On October 23, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will officially release on PC, as will Thronebraker: The Witcher Tales, a single-player RPG based around card battles.

Due to the console versions needing a bit more polish and requiring certification, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and Gwent: The Witcher Card game will not come to PS4 or Xbox One until December 4. Gwent will support cross-play between PS4 and PC as well as Xbox One and PC, but not between PS4 and Xbox One.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game’s official release will coincide with the Homecoming update, a large overhaul first teased back in April. Homecoming comes with tons of gameplay improvements, it’s the biggest update for Gwent yet, but some of the other more notable changes include making the game board 3D and brand new art more in line with the mainline games.

Meanwhile, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales mixes a single-player narrative and puzzles in with the more traditional card-based gameplay. The game follows Meve, who must defend her kingdoms of Lyria and Rivia from a Nilfgaardian invasion, and will have players visit areas not yet seen in the games. A price has not yet been decided upon for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales.

You can check out a recent developer video announcing these launch dates below. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game and Thronebraker: The Witcher Tales will release on October 23 alongside the Homecoming update before coming out of beta on PS4 and Xbox One on December 4.
