With registrations for the Closed Beta of GWENT: The Witcher Card Game shutting down this weekend that means that the next step for the multiplayer card battle game would be a Public Beta. Details on that are expected next week, and we should probably have a better understanding of the game's road to release in the lead up to E3.
But, even in its current state GWENT has been a resounding success, offering up a unique spin on competitive card gaming.
“Throughout Closed Beta, we’ve reworked and added a huge amount of features and mechanics to GWENT. Balance changes, numerous tweaks of how cards work and how the game flows; additional cards, a new faction and ranked play — it was an amazing ride and GWENT’s community was with us all the way,” said Benjamin Lee, Development Director at CD PROJEKT RED. “I’d like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the hours invested,” added Lee.
Our very own Stephen Farrelly fancies himself quite the GWENT player, among a few other not so noble activities, but the question is he good enough GWENT Challenger tournament? Because competitive GWENT is already a thing with a respectable $100,000 prize pool up for grabs this weekend.
