Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is Getting a Stress Test This Month


Gwent – the standalone version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s popular mini-game – is on the way and getting a stress test. Starting September 23, CD Projekt Red will be administering the test over four-days.

The stress test’s purpose is to discern how much duress their current server set-up would suffer. As with all server tests, they are aimed to address the next stage of development. While this test is tasked with ensuring a smooth closed beta, it will also help them gauge just how much hype Gwent has managed to gather. I suppose they’re trying to avoid a Pokemon Go fiasco,  as the hype surrounding Gwent is substantial.

Gwent’s closed beta arrives on October 25th, and a release date has yet to be announced. However, fewer server-based problems would definitely help keep the developers focused on polishing game-play. So find your friends, get your family, and get playing on September 23.

GWENT Card Game 2

Gwent will be competing against the already well-established Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. However, it isn’t only Blizzard that CD Projekt Red will be pitting their game against. Bethesda recently entered closed beta with their own game – The Elder Scrolls: Legends. Up until now, Blizzard has had a monopoly on this newer genre of gaming. Legends might leave its mark, but Gwent, with its built in base of The Witcher 3 die hard fans, may have the upper hand.
