Gwent: Witcher 3's Embedded Card Game

CD Projekt RED announces plans to include a virtual card-based game titled Gwent within The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt, the next installment in their RPG series (we were surprised that "Gwent" didn't trigger our spell-checker, but it turns out to be an ancient county preserved within Wales, and no, there won't be a test). They also announce that the Xbox One Collector's Edition of the game will also include a physical version of Gwent. Here's a description of the game, though the history it outlines may not actually be 100% true:

Gwent is a fast-paced card game that can be played within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on every platform. Invented by dwarves and perfected over centuries of tavern table play, Gwent is a game of initial simplicity and ultimate depth, something beloved by both road-weary travelers during long nights around the campfire and elegant nobles looking to liven up dragging dinner parties. The game is about the clash of two armies locked in mortal struggle on a battlefield where the players are the leaders and the cards their forces. With four different factions offering unique combat styles and endless paths to victory, Gwent is every adventurer’s first choice when it comes to one-on-one card-based dueling. Take risks and think on your feet, strategize and deliver cunning combos, use potent magic and mighty hero cards and be the last one standing on the field of honor!

Key Features:

  • Over 150 unique playing cards
  • 4 distinct factions: the mighty and cunning Nilfgaardian Empire, the brave Northern Realms and their siege weapons, the agile and devious Scoia’tael, and the brutal monsters of No Man’s Land.
  • Powerful spells allow players to control the weather and affect units on the battlefield.
  • An array of combat styles caters to individual playstyles: close range with heavy knights, long range with skilled archers or artillery with powerful siege weapons.
  • Powerful hero cards, unique to each faction.
