The creators of the critically acclaimed franchise of The Witcher games, CD Projekt Red, today announced that for the first time in a public showing the upcoming GWENT: The Witcher Card Game will be available to play at this years Gamescom in Cologne, Germany.

Made famous as the mini-game in The Witcher 3, Gwent gives players the opportunity to clash with friends and players from around the world in fast-paced, card-based combat alongside in-depth deck construction, a unique best of 3 mechanic and a diverse range of units, special abilities and spells.

“GWENT was made because of the amazing effort of The Witcher community – we’ve received tons and tons of messages to make a standalone version happen and now we finally have the chance to show GWENT to the public for the first time. Gamescom is one of those special events that allows us to thank gamers for their support in person. So we’d love to have a chat with you in Cologne, hear your thoughts about GWENT and get direct feedback on how the game plays for you,” Marcin Momot, Senior Social Media and Community Coordinator

Those attending this years Gamescom event can head to the Entertainment Area in booth B-053 between August 17th and 21st to get their hands on GWENT: The Witcher Card Game. When it releases GWENT: The Witcher Card Game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
