GWENT Nilfgaard Faction Arriving Soon

Posted on 31 Jan 2017 by

Part of a major content for GWENT is arriving the new faction – Nilfgaard.

Nilfgaard introduces a new playstyle which focuses on maintaining control over the battlefield with new mechanics such as revealing cards in the opponent’s hand, controlling the order of cards in decks and trickery based on disloyalty.

The update adds more than 60 new cards, including new faction-specific cards for Northern Realms, Scoia’tael, Skellige and Monsters, as well as neutral cards.

I previously mentioned about how I hoped that GWENT would be easier to play than Caravan from Fallout: New Vegas, and I have to admit, I like it, about as much as Pazaak from Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic.

The Nilfgaard update arrives February 6th, and to sign up for BETA head on over to the website for a chance to get in.
