GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is getting its first expansion since its release back towards the end of 2018. The Crimson Curse expansion brings a whole lot of content for fans of the digital collectible card game based off The Witcher’s universe to enjoy.
The Crimson Curse’s theme revolves around the “mighty higher vampire Dettlaff” completely turning the moon red in his quest to destroy our world with monsters and beastly creatures. Dettlaff was featured in The Witcher 3’s Blood and Wine expansion. The expansion adds more than a hundred new cards to the game, split into “31 neutral cards and 14 faction cards for each faction.” Here are more details on the expansion’s content.
The Blood Moon is rising. This is a time of the Crimson Curse, a time of madness and despair. A dark ritual performed by a mighty higher vampire Dettlaff turns the moon blood red, corrupting the land and its inhabitants. No one is safe and there’s nowhere to run — new breeds of monsters are awaking from their slumber, thirsting for blood. Will you join Dettlaff in his quest for revenge and destruction or choose to fight back and protect the innocents?
REINFORCEMENTS HAVE ARRIVED
Crimson Curse is the first card expansion to GWENT: The Witcher Card Game — it brings over 100 new cards, including 31 neutral cards and 14 faction cards for each faction.
