GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now in Open Beta on PC, Xbox One and PS4, with players able to download the client now and join in the competitive card playing fun.
GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is a standalone spin-off of the popular card game of the same name found within The Witcher games. It features turn based card play between two players, with each player laying cards to unleash heroes, spells and special abilities within their three-row battle formation to attempt to win within a best of three series of rounds.
There are five different factions to choose from (Nilfgaardian Empire, Skellige, Monsters, Northern Realms, or Scoia’tael), each with their own strengths and weaknesses. There’s a nice variety of cards and it’s a game in which you can actually bluff your way to victory, luring out your opponents strongest cards early so that you can capitalise in the end game. You’re also able to collect or craft new cards to build your deck, embark on an epic story campaign and compete in friendly or ranked online matches.
It’s a fun game, that offers plenty of depth and tactical strategy, accompanied by an intuitive UI and some beautifully animated cards. Well worth popping down to your local Witcher tavern to play!
