Gwent Homecoming info

Ever since E3 2018, when they unveiled Cyberpunk 2077, CD Projekt RED has been all over the place, letting the world know about what they have in store for their fans. They haven’t just been sharing all sorts of juicy details about their new RPG, but they have also talked a great deal about their separate project, Gwent and the game’s update, Homecoming. At the center of it all is the fourth Gwent Challengers tournament, which has confirmed that players can expect numerous, huge changes in Gwent: Homecoming. From what we could tell, they are primarily looking to improve the graphics somewhat. Apart from that, you can also expect gameplay changes.

Have a gander below:

In addition to that, the makers of The Witcher have announced that Daniel “Damorquis” Morkish is the winner of the September 2018 Gwent Challenger tournament. Incidentally, the best Gwent players have been competing for their share of the $100,000 prize pool.

Also, the final standings for the Gwent tournament have been unveiled:

WINNER

Daniel “Damorquis” Morkisch (Germany)

FINALISTS

Daniel “Damorquis” Morkisch (Germany) — $57,000

Ilias “AretuzaAndyWand” Karamanis (Germany) — $24,250

All righty, having completed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in its entirety (all expansion packs and DLCs), I never found the time and patience to get into the Gwent games. I sort of regret that; especially now that I’ve seen how much of an amazing job they’ve done with this separate release.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game entered a public beta in May last year, and the developers have promised to release the full game some time in 2018.

Okay, let’s hear it: how many of you have been playing Gwent? How do you feel about Gwent: Homecoming?
