The War Comes in Gwent’s Public Beta

The collectible card game spawned from CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher 3 enters its Public Beta development phase.

Originally announced last June, Gwent places you in command of an army, as you raise forces for three different fronts: Melee, Ranged and Siege weapons. By placing cards to summon units, as well as use magical spells or change the weather, players attempt to win two rounds of Gwent with the limited cards at their disposal.

With the Closed Beta period now passed, anyone can now step into the world of Gwent on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Our PC brethren can access the Public Beta here for free, a account is needed to play of course.

Official Press Release

GWENT Public Beta now available

CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announce the start of Public Beta for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Gamers can start playing immediately by visiting on PC, or — on consoles — download the client directly through Xbox Store or PlayStation Store.

Public Beta is an important step towards GWENT’s final release,” said Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of CD PROJEKT RED. “We’re opening the gates to everyone who wanted to play, but didn’t make it into the Closed Beta, and — at the same time — we’re introducing some pretty significant content and gameplay changes like adding animated versions of cards for every card in the game, new starter decks, or how weather cards work,” Iwiński adds. “I’m extra curious how all of the community feedback we’ve incorporated will resonate with both current players and those who’re just starting. Please keep the feedback coming, we’re listening!

In addition to the cinematic trailer, CD PROJEKT RED has also released a gameplay video presenting GWENT’s features, and a set of faction videos covering the playstyles of each of the game’s five factions.
