CD Projekt RED Announces Public Beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game

CD Projekt RED has announced today that their new card game based on the in-game version played in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Gwent, will be coming to public beta very soon.

Gwent’s open beta is scheduled to start on May 24, allowing fans across all platforms – PS4, Xbox One, and PC to join in on the fun. After being in closed beta since 2016, it will be nice to see how the general public feels about the game.

“Public Beta is the next step in the game’s development process, one that we’d be honored to continue alongside everyone who’s been with us thus far,” said Benjamin Lee, Development Director at CD PROJEKT RED. “It’s also a chance for many new gamers to play GWENT for the first time and we’re looking forward to making the game even better with their help,” added Lee.

For those who have yet to play Witcher 3 and have not heard of Gwent yet, check out the official description of the game down below:

In GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, gamers clash with their 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.

In recent Witcher 3 news, the hit franchise is apparently going to get a TV series developed and produced by Netflix very soon. The series will be based on Polish writer Andrzej Sapkowski’s 8 novel saga. For more information on what to expect, read the full story here.
