There was a somewhat surreal moment in the middle of this weekend’s big Gwent tournament. Right after a short Witcher 3 musical performance and before the finals, Pawel Burza, Gwent’s community specialist and the tournament’s host, looked directly into the camera and apologized to the roughly 36,000 viewers for not…
The Witcher came out on PC in 2007. That feels like a lifetime ago. The series is now easily one of my favorites, but a decade ago I, like a lot of people, had no idea it even existed. That’s created a weird dynamic as I play The Witcher 1 for the first time knowing everything that happens in the second two games,…
The next game from the makers of The Witcher 3 is looking impressive, and perhaps most importantly, it looks like a real video game. A 50-minute behind-closed-doors E3 demo of Cyberpunk 2077 showed attendees proper gameplay, played live, that appeared like something we might actually see in the next year or two.
We got a peek at Cyberpunk 2077 during Microsoft’s E3 press conference, but other than verifying that the cyberpunk setting will, in fact, have mohawks and buildings that appear to have been smuggled out of Blade Runner while nobody was looking, we didn’t actually learn much. Today, CD Projekt divulged some real…
As part of today’s Microsoft E3 press conference, Witcher developer CD Projekt Red showed off a new teaser of its next monster-sized, but also monster-free RPG, Cyberpunk 2077.
Gwent’s May balance patch is now live. As CD Projekt Red explained last month, this will be the Witcher-based card game’s last major update until its single-play campaign, “Thronebreaker,” comes out in the fall. It changes several cards and reworks the “swap” and “create” abilities. The full patch notes are here.
The Witcher 3 got a PS4 pro patch today. People can finally play in 4K with High Dynamic Range (HDR) support without having to navigate seas of vegetation magically popping in as they travel.
The Witcher 3 is a sprawling single-player RPG with so much to do it can be overwhelming. The game world is huge. Points of interest litter the map. Dialogue trees mean you can play through pivotal scenes in different ways. I can think of far worse games to be stuck on a desert island with for the rest of my life.…
Today, CD Projekt Red co-CEO Marcin Iwiński and the directors of Gwent laid out the studio’s six month plan to rehab the Witcher-based card game for its official release and the launch of its single-player story campaign later this year.
As a competitive card game, Gwent has a community of players that’s both completely devoted and perpetually grumpy. The latest target of that energy happens to be a card called Imlerith: Sabbath, a gold monster whose power was best demonstrated when it almost single-handedly won a recent match.
After plenty of speculation and guessing, a new trailer shows The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia will be in Soulcalibur VI after all.
Gwent is a wonderful card game. It can also be confusing as hell. Here’s some advice to get you started.
Gwent’s next game mode will be Gwent Arena. Players will have three lives to complete nine matches using crafted decks that ignore faction restrictions. You should probably start building your absurd dream team now.
A princess who’s also a witcher, Ciri is far and away one of the best characters in The Witcher 3. She’s pretty great in Gwent as well. In fact, she’s recently become so popular that CD Projekt Red has decided to nerf her in the game’s latest update.
Today Gwent’s development team apologized to fans for how the latest patch was implemented. December’s Midwinter Update added lots of cards and also overhauled the game’s look and feel, a combination the team now says was a mistake. A hot fix last week addressed some of the problems.
Gwent got a patch today “removing spies that grant card advantage from Create,” among a bunch of bug fixes. Also, until Monday, every card keg will contain a choice of one of three Premium cards as its fifth card.
The Polish developer CD Projekt Red first announced Cyberpunk 2077 in May 2012. After a few brief teases, the studio went silent. And now, for the first time in nearly half a decade, Cyberpunk 2077 has re-emerged with a juicy, tantalizing message.
This week the Midwinter Update for Gwent, CD Projeckt Red’s card game based off The Witcher 3, finally went live. Gwent, which is still in beta, gets patched pretty regularly, but not like this. Popular cards have seen their abilities simplified and weakened, and text descriptions that added flavor to the game have…
