The creative minds behind the critically acclaimed The Witcher franchise announced at E3 that they will be releasing GWENT: The Witcher Card Game with the official website now available and sign-ups for the first Closed Beta event are now live. GWENT: The Witcher Card Game will feature the same mechanics as the game made famous in The Witcher 3 as players test their abilities in a best-of-three series battle as they sling spells, summon unique units and use special abilities to take down their opponents.

“I would like to thank all the fans for supercharging us to make standalone GWENT happen. Thousands of e-mails in dozens of languages coming from all around the world, the phone calls, the forum posts, and more than 40 fan made versions – all this, and everything in between, didn’t go unnoticed. Yes, we were mysteriously quiet after the launch of The Witcher 3, but during all this time we were hard at work on what we just unveiled today – GWENT: The Witcher Card Game. We’ve taken all that heart and energy you gave us and put it into GWENT. If you enjoyed GWENT in The Witcher 3, I think I don’t have to convince you to sign-up for the beta. If you hadn’t tried it yet, there’s no better time. Go register, play the beta for free starting from September and share your feedback with us. Tell us what you like, and what you don’t. Tell us what we should change or improve. We made this game for you, so let’s shape it together.” [/quote]
