GWENT: The Witcher Card Game from CD Project Red has officially released on the Steam gaming platform.
Originally released in 2018, GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is a free to play online card game based off the video game series of the same name, which in turn was based on Andrzej Sapkowski’s The Witcher novels.
GWENT is a head-to-head multiplayer card game with two players opposing one another, and trying to end a series of rounds with the highest points in order to win. The cards and visuals are all based off The Witcher series, and includes familiar faces for fans of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
GWENT- like many other online card games- operates on a free-to-play model with micro transactions. Players are able to purchase cards with real money in order to complete their collections. Players can also craft premium cards with dust and ore, that is earned by recycling old cards and through play.
You can watch the official Steam trailer below via YouTube.
It is worth noting that as we reported previously, console support for GWENT has ended, and after June 9th the game will no longer be operational on Playstation 4 and Xbox One.
Though the game is being released on Steam, players will still need to create and sign into a GOG account in order to play GWENT. You can find the full rundown (via Steam) below.
