Gwent: The Witcher Card Game for PC, PS4 and XONE is a classic fantasy card game, which gives us commands over heroes and units from Witcher’s universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski. Gwent has debuted in 2015’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and quickly became known as the best minigame in history, with many players collecting virtual cards and exploring game’s world to find more challenging opponents. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game’s development has been handled by CD Projekt RED studio.

Mechanics

Each player gets a deck of dozens of cards divided into 4 available factions, including Northern Realms, Nifgaardian Empire, Monsters, and Skellige. Gameplay is based on standard turn-based model: we start by drawing 10 cards, each representing a certain type of battle units, heroes, optional bonuses to strength or morale of our followers and abilities that affects weather on the battlefield.

Units’ cards are placed in one of three rows: for melee fighters, ranged soldiers and finally for siege machines, like catapults. Each of them is described by points that reflect their attack strength. The winner is a player who has more powerful army, in other words – the one which has more strength points at the end of the round. Typically for card games, players need to win two rounds to achieve victory.

Game modes

Aside from classic online duels, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game fir PC, PS4 and XONE offers a story campaign, which consists of regularly released episodes.
