GWENT: The Witcher Card Game Public Beta Begins Next Week

Posted May 18, 2017

Which is one week away. The beta will be available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

Those that take part in the beta will be able to get fresh card collections and player progress, as stats will be reset to ensure fairness in the public beta.

All items granted as gifts from CD PROJEKT RED (like the gift premium Geralt card). More information on the length of the beta, as well as any additional notes, will be provided at a later time.

While this ought to come as good news to those who have been itching to try out The Witcher card game, for those who have been taking part in the closed beta since it began in October of past year, it means that all of their progress is about to be reset.

To prepare players for the Public Beta, CD Projekt RED hosted an in-depth "Preview" stream, and it's been embedded above.

However, severs will be offline from May 22 to May 24 while Gwent makes the technical transition from closed to public beta. A livestream giving an overview will be aired on Twitch at 9 PM CEST. During this time, GWENT's Facebook and Twitter channels will provide updates on the game's status.

Gwent started life as the in-game card game in The Witcher, now coming as a standalone card game (similar to Hearthstone, kinda). The Studio's flagship franchise, games from The Witcher series, has sold over 25 million copies worldwide. If you haven't gotten a chance to try it out so far, your only way to play was to play the game inside The Witcher 3.
