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…
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.
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.
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.
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…
Gwent’s midwinter update is out today on PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The Witcher 3-based card game is getting balancing tweaks as well as some new features like adaily quest system and new deck builder interface. The game’s third holiday event, Midwinter Hunt, is also live. You can find the complete patch notes here.
You can have a damn good time on the PS4 without spending a dime thanks to a number of free-to-play games populating the PSN store. Some of these free offerings rival what you’d expect out of a full-fledged $60 game, if not surpass them. Here are our picks for the most worthwhile F2P PS4 games.
The studio behind The Witcher series announced its spin-off card game Gwent back at E3 2016. Over a year later the game still isn’t officially out yet, though CD Projekt Red clams it will launch before the end of 2017. During that time it’s grown into something special, so I’m here to say, if you still had any…
The Mahakam Ale Festival went live in CD Projekt Red’s collectible card game just over a week ago. Intended to coincide with Oktoberfest, the holiday event brought with it not just some tweaks to old cards but also completely new game mode.
The Witcher 3 is one of this console generation’s best games. It might even be one of the best role-playing games ever made. Maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise then that Gwent, its side-quest distraction turned standalone card game, is every bit as detailed, complex, and beautifully crafted.
Gwent, the in-universe card game from The Witcher 3, has been in beta as a standalone game since last May. Today, developers CD Projekt RED announced a new season-based competitive mode called Gwent Masters. Separate from the ranked mode already available to Gwent players, Gwent Masters will allow players to compete…
The open beta for Gwent, CD Projekt Red’s standalone version of The Witcher 3's card game, starts today for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. In my time with the closed beta I found the game to move a little too fast sometimes, but overall it’s a richer, deeper take on the minigame my Geralt lost all his money on. Learn more or…
