Following the sweeping trend, Gwent will be released as a standalone card game this year. The game was made immensely popular by players in The Witcher 3, and now die-hard fans will get their wish this fall.
Lead Designer Damien Monnier, announced the four main factions in the game, as well as the playgwent.com website where players can sign up and play the closed beta. The access will only be granted to those on XBOX One and Windows PC at first, with the game being released this September.
The cross-play gaming Microsoft and XBOX has been promoting is present in Gwent. Players can battle across the Windows platforms, as well as take down AI opponents in an expansive single player campaign.

David is a lover of all things nerdy & geeky! (Nerd IS the new cool after all!)
From the wee age of 6 he made his way to a Canadian Tire, purchased a SNES for $200 in in-store credit money (Canadian Tire money for Canadians out there), and hasn’t looked back!
He loves the classics like Donkey Kong, Mario, and Diablo, but is deep into the new age of gaming with Heroes of the Storm, EA’s NHL series, Destiny, and indies like Fez, Thomas Was Alone, and Mark of the Ninja.
