Gwent: Merchants of Ofir is another add-on to the 2018 card game set in the popular fantasy universe created by Andrzej Sapkowski - Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. The expansion introduces several dozen new cards. Developers from the Polish CD Projekt RED studio (authors of the game series The Witcher and Cyberpunk 2077) are responsible for its development.
Mysterious merchants come from a distant land, where caravans hide countless riches and artifacts. Everything has its price and everyone can gain something by coming to the Ofiris, but remember that the currency is not always gold...
Merchants of Ofir add-on introduces 70 new cards related thematically to the title land - most often they are treasures, animals, armies or monsters from Ofir. It is worth noting that among the novelties we will find proposals for each of the factions available in the game CD Projekt RED studio.
The expansion also introduces two unprecedented large mechanics. The first one is the combat stratagem, which increase the possibility of modifying your waist. The default stratagem is called Tactical Advantage, but players can choose from several other options, tailored to their own style of play.
The second novelty is Scenarios - these are artifacts assigned to a given fraction. By playing specific cards in the right order, we create a specific story and can cause additional effects affecting the game.
Gwent: Merchants of Ofir do not introduce new modes of play. The basis of the game is the multiplayer network module.
Gwent: Merchants of Ofir does not make any major changes to the graphic design. We receive dozens of new illustrations on cards, maintained in a similar artistic style as those from the stand and previous DLCs. Creators have added some new death animations, which are displayed in case of destruction of units.
The add-on makes a lot of modifications to Gwent sound - there are completely new sounds that allow you to personalize your gameplay better. Existing accompanying effects, such as barrel opening, have also been improved. It is also worth noting the support for surround sound.
Just like the basic version of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, this add-on was released in a free-to-play model, which means we can download it completely free of charge.
