All Articles: Gwent: The Witcher Card Game

CD Projekt has delayed Gwent’s single-player campaign into 2018

Gwent launched as an Open Beta for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One in May. Since then, developer CD Projekt has delivered multiple tweaks and updates to the game, and a “Full Version” was planned for sometime this Fall. However, it looks like that plan has hit a snag.

Writing on the game’s official website, CD Projekt’s Marcin Iwinski has confirmed the release of Gwent’s “Full Version,” as well as the Thronebreaker single-player campaign, have been pushed back to 2018:

Thronebreaker, Gwent’s story-driven single player campaign, is moving to 2018. We decided to increase the campaign’s scope and need more time to work on it. Shifting release windows is always something we approach seriously, however, we’ll never hesitate to do it if we feel you’ll get a better game as a result. I would like to apologize everyone who planned to play Thronebreaker over the Holidays — I assure you that we will do our best to make the final game worth the additional wait.

But it wasn’t all bad news. Iwinski also said that CD Projekt is planning to “increase the tempo” of multiplayer updates next year, and that fans should expect to see frequent content additions (including “cards, challenges, vanity items, [and] game patches, and balance tweaks”) to the game.

Xbox Store Today: Unit 4, Gwent Open Beta, A Walk in the Dark, more

Welcome to another Wednesday update for the Xbox Games Store. Five new Xbox One games are now available to download through the digital storefront, and a few highlights include…

Unit 4 is a retro-themed co-op platformer from Gamera Interactive where players jump, dash, and rope swing across the galaxy in search of an evil alien army.

On an entirely opposite spectrum is Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, which is now available in Open Beta thanks to CD Projekt Red. The collectible card game made famous by The Witcher gives players command of “highly customizable armies” and asks them to cleverly “sling powerful unit and spell cards” to emerge victorious.

Finally, A Walk In The Dark is a monochromatic platformer from Flying Turtle that is very reminiscent of Limbo. Players will control a cat named Bast and explore a “dark fantasy world” in this Xbox Play Anywhere title.

More information about all of today’s new release can be found after the break. (more…)

Friday the 13th, Rime, Gwent, Marvel Heroes Omega, more coming to PS Store this week

Two brand new Open Betas are now available to download through the PlayStation Store for the PS4… and they’re both free.

First up, CD Projekt Red will give players the chance to try out Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. According to the developer, Gwent is “based on skill rather than luck” and will require the clever mastery of strategy and deception if you want to defeat your opponents. Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, Marvel has launched a free-to-play beta for Marvel Heroes Omega, an upgraded adaptation of the mobile action RPG.

It’s also possible to travel back to the past this week with the PlayStation Store as Square Enix has added Star Ocean: Till the End of Time to the PS2-On-PS4 collection. Whether you’re playing it for the first time or the fifth, the epic RPG is now available to download for the PS4.

Later this week, Jason Voorhees will tear his way through a helpless group of camp counselors in Friday the 13th: The Game. The 4v1 multiplayer game will be available to download on Friday, May 26. Also set to launch for the PS4 this Friday is Rime, an exploration adventure from Tequila Works.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)

Public Beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game begins on May 24

CD Projekt RED has announced that the Public Beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will begin next Wednesday, May 24, on the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

“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, the 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.”

The launch of the Public Beta will mark a complete refresh for the Gwent community. CD Projekt RED will reset all card collections and player progress to ensure that all players begin the Public Beta on equal footing. However, all players who participated in the Closed Beta will receive Card Kegs, as well as other in-game rewards.

To prepare players for the Public Beta, CD Projekt RED hosted an in-depth “Preview” stream, and it’s been embedded above.
