Gwent, the incredibly addictive CCG (Collectible Card Game) based on a mini game that was one of the best parts of the award winning Witcher 3, will be coming to smartphones later this year. The game will be arriving on iPhones first with an Android version in the works.
“We’ve been preparing long and hard to adapt GWENT to smartphones,” said Jason Slama, Game Director of GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, CD PROJEKT RED. “Beautiful visuals aside, we’ve tailored much of our technology, including GOG Galaxy which powers GWENT’s multiplayer, to support mobile devices. I think our vision for bringing GWENT to smartphones combines the best we have to offer both in terms of graphics and gameplay. I can’t wait to share more details on the subject with you later this year.”
In addition to bringing Gwent to a bigger audience, the PC, PS4, and Xbox One version of the game will be receiving a new expansion tomorrow, the 28th of March. Crimson Curse adds 100 new cards, most of which detail new abilities and game mechanics. 5 new leader cards will also be introduced, some from the series and a few new to the expansion.Watch the trailer for the expansion here.
The expansion comes out tomorrow, but if you preorder beforehand, there is a deal available. The Pre-order Pack contains 40 Crimson Curse Kegs at a special discounted price, the Blood Armor legendary leader skin for Unseen Elder, as well as an animated Crimson Curse cardback. The offer will expire upon the expansion’s launch. Details on the preorder can be found here.
