CD PROJEKT RED has release two new trailers for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game just in time for its open beta. The gameplay trailer lays out the core mechanics of the game, as well as fundamental strategies to start winning matches. The cinematic trailer features a duel between Geralt and Ciri that highlights just how exciting a game of Gwent can be.
Think of the gameplay trailer as a crash course in Gwent. It includes an overview of how the game is played, along with an explanation of various units available to players. There is also a section on how to obtain new cards or create your own.
Those who enjoyed the story of The Witcher 3, where Gwent originally debuted, will be thrilled to know there will be a story-driven single player campaign created by the original writers of the game. This solo experience, elaborated on in the trailer, will allow players to adventure through the world of The Witcher while earning new cards.
Considering this isn’t a Witcher sequel, a cinematic trailer feel like a surprising choice for a card game. However, it perfectly fits the aggressive, unpredictable style of the game itself, mirrored in the chaos that unfolds onscreen. It’s a charming and gorgeous trailer that provides fans the chance to see Geralt and Ciri back in action once more.
It’s no coincidence these trailers arrived when they did, as Gwent: The Witcher Card Game launches its open beta today and CD PROJEKT RED wants to get people testing. The game is available for both PC and consoles, but currently it isn’t playable on Mac. There hasn’t been anything official on a release for mobile devices, but it seems like it would be right at home on an iOS or Android device. Anyone who wants to play can simply visit PlayGwent.com and sign up.
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game has just entered open beta, with a full release coming at a later date. The game is available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
