AND

Gwent: Novigrad is an expansion for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, a card game set in the universe known from The Witcher RPG series, based on the novel series by Andrzej Sapkowski, a Polish fantasy writer. The expansion focuses on Novigrad, the merchant city that appeared in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Developers from the Polish studio CD Projekt RED are responsible for creating this title (creators of, among others, the The Witcher series and Cyberpunk 2077).

Plot

Gwent: Novigrad's storyline revolves around the title free city, full of both opportunities and dangers.

Mechanics

Novigrad introduces more than 90 new cards to the game. 15 of them concern existing factions (3 for each). The others are connected with another novelty, i.e. the sixth playable army. It is the Syndicate, an organization established thanks to an alliance of all the gangs of the eponymous city. Of course, the underworld also has its leaders, such as the bloodthirsty Cleaver, the elusive King of Beggars and the dangerous Novigrad noble, Hemmelfart.

In addition to the Syndicate, the expansion also introduces a few more keywords and mechanics. The most important are the Crowns - we obtain them by activating cards with the keywords Profit or Crimes and by destroying units for which a Bounty was set. The money can then be used to activate the Fee skills, which may include summoning units.

Among other new mechanics we will find Intimidate (units are strengthened when we commit a Crime), Capital (abilities that we can play with a specific number of Crowns that do not use this money at the same time), Insanity (we can play the abilities of cards marked with this keyword even if we are unable to pay Fees).

Game modes

Gwent: Novigrad can only be played with others. The mainstay of the game is the online multiplayer mode.

Technical aspects

Gwent: Novigrad does not introduce any significant changes in the visuals of the base version of the game. We get two-dimensional graphics based primarily on nicely illustrated cards. The artistic style of the expansion resembles The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. In the expansion we will find, of course, a number of completely new images.

Other information

Just like the base version, Novigrad was released in free-to-play model, which means that we can download it completely free of charge.
