GWENT: The Witcher Card Game Officially Announced, Coming This Year | E3 2016

For all those Gwent addicts who loved the mini card game in last year’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, it’s time to rejoice! CD Projekt RED has finally lifted the lid on GWENT: The Witcher Card Game

During Microsoft’s E3 conference today, Gwent creator Damien Monnier took the spotlight to announce that Gwent will be getting its own standalone title later this year. It’s coming to all platforms and cross-play compatibility will be featured across PC and Xbox One.

Much like the mini-game in The Witcher 3, GWENT will be played in best-of-three rounds as players utilize their preferred decks (all but Nilfgaard were showcased, though it’s said it’ll make an appearance) to achieve victory over their opponents via spells and various units, most of which boast special abilities. Not only is there social and ranked online play, but there’s a story mode, too!

“I would like to thank all the fans for supercharging us to make standalone GWENT happen,” stated Marcin Iwinski, CD Projekt co-founder. “Thousands of e-mails in dozens of languages coming from all around the world, the phone calls, the forum posts, and more than 40 fan made versions — all this, and everything in between, didn’t go unnoticed. Yes, we were mysteriously quiet after the launch of The Witcher 3, but during all this time we were hard at work on what we just unveiled today — GWENT: The Witcher Card Game.”

“We’ve taken all that heart and energy you gave us and put it into GWENT. If you enjoyed GWENT in The Witcher 3, I think I don’t have to convince you to sign-up for the beta. If you hadn’t tried it, there’s no better time. Go register, play the beta for free starting from September and share your feedback with us. Tell us what you like, and what you don’t. Tell us what we should change or improve. We made this game for you, so let’s shape it together.”

GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is scheduled to arrive late this year. You can sign up for the closed beta now as a means of getting your hands on CD RED’s latest and greatest, and help them play test the foundations of what will certainly be a highly addictive, exhilarating free-to-play card game.
