Gwent’s popularity as an exhaustive mini-game in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt led CD Projekt Red to develop the card game as a standalone project. By downloading the free-to-play game now, you can battle against both the AI and other players online, building up a deck of cards based on the various factions from The Witcher universe, including the Nilfgaardians, Scoia’tael, and Monsters.
In GameSpot’s Gwent: The Witcher Card Game review, Alessandro Barbosa said, “Gwent clearly learns from other digital collectible card games that have carved their niche out of the market, but its play style offers up an entirely different type of challenge. It’s one that requires some investment, and hard decisions on which Faction you’d like to invest in, but Gwent also respects your time by rewarding you for nearly every action in a match, tempting you to play just one more. Its matches could use some fine-tuning in their pacing and presentation, but Gwent is otherwise a refreshingly new take on card games that establishes itself firmly outside of the simple side activity it was in The Witcher 3.”
Of course, Gwent isn’t the only recent Witcher release. The Witcher 3 was improbably released on the Nintendo Switch last month, and we have you covered with a full review if you feel like taking Geralt’s adventures on the road. The Witcher TV series is also arriving on Netflix next month. The latest trailer for the Henry Cavill-fronted series was released this week, and it even recreates a popular meme.
