CD Projekt Red is famous for The Witcher games.  Especially, the third and latest entry in the series is widely regarded as one of the best games ever made for PC and consoles. But the Polish developer took a detour and made a very interesting spin-off titled GWENT The Witcher Card Game, which is an expanded version of the mini card game that was featured in The Witcher 3. After spending a long time in the beta testing phase, it finally got an official launch on PC and consoles last year. Now, the developer has announced that the game will be coming to mobile devices.

If you have not played The Witcher 3, here is an introduction: Gwent is a card game for 2 players with cards featuring characters in The Witcher universe. Each match consists of 3 rounds, and the goal is to get higher attack scores than your opponent in at least 2. There are several ways you can achieve that goal. Each unit has its own attack scores which all contribute toward your total scores for that round, and some have special effects such as destroying your opponent’s cards, increasing the attack strengths of your own units, or bringing back another card from the discarded pile.

How to play the game

Yesterday, CDPR confirmed that GWENT The Witcher Card Game will be coming to iOS this fall, with an Android version following after.

Naturally, this is going to be a major step for the game, since mobile is undoubtedly a more fitting platform for a card game than PC or consoles.

GWENT The Witcher Card Game also made several tweaks to the The Witcher 3’s mini-game. There are still multiple factions for players to choose such as the Northern Realms, Nilfgaard, and Scoia’tael, but one notable change is that instead of having 3 rows for specific types of card, there are now only 2, and you can play any of your cards on either of these rows.

There is no specific release date for the mobile version of GWENT The Witcher Card Game yet. Right now it is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, though.
