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.
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.
Whether you’re looking for a dive to drink to your sorrows, a romantic hideaway, or the perfect place for a party, the Continent has the spot for you. Here’s a review of every bar in The Witcher 3.
One Sunday morning a few weekends ago, I opened up my computer to play some video games. I had a mess of games to review, but I ended up in The Witcher 3. There was this tree I wanted to find.
A fan-made mod for The Witcher 3 adds a prologue of the first game’s events remade in the new engine. It’s short but sweet.
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.
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…
If you happen to run into Andrzej Sapkowski, creator of The Witcher, you might not want to bring up the video games. They haven’t made his life much better, in part because they’re not making him any money.
The latest patch notes for The Witcher 3 state that CD Projekt Red fixed an issue where “a noblewoman in red would sometimes follow Geralt everywhere he goes.” But while this bug may not plague players anymore, the internet never forgets.
And now for a ridiculous moment you can experience within the new Witcher 3 expansion, Hearts of Stone.
I’ve spent almost 100 hours in the Witcher 3, wandering the streets of Novigrad, galloping through Velen’s windswept woodland, sailing between the isles of Skellige. Yet in all that time, I never really stopped to enjoy the game’s quieter moments.
On today’s episode of Highlight Reel we have roundabout rockets, car dismounts, DOTA 2 bromances, horses doing push-ups, and much more!
Finally! As anyone with facial hair will tell you, it grows. Except in video games, where beards seem suspended in time. Not anymore.
Like Nathan, I played a good four or five hours of The Witcher 3 the other week, and like him, I’ve been oddly preoccupied by it ever since.
