For those who are unfamiliar with The Witcher franchise, it is a world engulfed in an endless war with monsters lurking from the edge of the woods to the corner of city streets. Individuals known as Witchers track down monsters and slay them for a hefty sum of coin. Witchers are split into different schools: the way of the Griffin, Bear, Cat, Wolf, Salamander, and Snake.
Gwent in The Witcher‘s universe is a card game designed for strategic planning and patient players. The game consists of fan-favorite characters that have a designated number and abilities. The goal of the game is to have a higher number of cards than your opponent at the end of each round. To be a master of Gwent you must add careful planning to the mix; if you play all of your cards before the last round, you’re out of luck.
CD Projekt Red announced yesterday that they are planning to add onto their already free game GWENT: The Witcher Card Game with a new expansion called Gwent: Way of the Witcher. The Way of The Witcher will see the addition of 10 cards per faction, as well as 10 neutral cards, totaling out at 70 new cards. The expansion is currently available for pre-order on the official website here.
The announcement comes after the announcement of another Witcher themed game, The Witcher: Monster Slayer. This game is designed to be like Pokémon Go, as it requires the player to get out and venture into the world to discover monsters to slay. All the while gaining points and coin to become a stronger Witcher.
Gwent: Way of the Witcher is set to release sometime next month. If you are interested in jumping into this fun free game before the expansion’s release, you can find the game on IOS’s App Store and Android’s Google Play.
