Confirming recent rumors, CD Projekt RED is working on a standalone, free-to-play Gwent card game following its popularity in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Called Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, its beta is heading first to Xbox One and PC but the game will land on the PlayStation 4 as well. Above is a trailer from Microsoft’s press conference and below is a description from the official website:
In GWENT, you’ll clash with your friends in fast-paced duels that combine bluffing, on-the-fly decision making and careful deck construction. The game is played over a best-of-three series of rounds, as players unleash their hand by slinging spells and diverse units with special abilities and use clever tricks to deceive their opponents.
We’ll update our readers when a release date is announced. For those who want to sign up for the beta, head over here.
