Gwent has a new vampire-themed expansion out, and to help celebrate CD Projekt is selling Blood Moon Packs for the low, low price of...$115. Each contains 100 kegs of new Crimson Curse cards to help get you started. It’s not a bad deal, but only if you want $115 worth of Gwent cards.
Gwent’s new expansion, Crimson Curse, will bring vampires to the Witcher-based card game on March 28. Inspired by the Witcher 3's Blood and Wine DLC, the new set, comprised of over 100 cards, will focus on poison, bleeding, deathblow, and berserk effects. In other words: lots of dying.
CD Projekt Red gave Gwent fans a first look at Homecoming during today’s Challenger. I find the new board a bit busy, but I’m excited about the new card layout and the tooltips. What do you think?
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.
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.
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.
