CD Projekt Red has launched a couple of games based on The Witcher franchise. After the huge success of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the creators of the game have toyed a bit with other genres to expand the universe based on the adventures of Geralt of Rivia. One of them is another RPG, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, but they have also released a card game with the name of GWENT that features characters from the books and the game as well as interesting gameplay mechanics. You can also play it for free and earn in-game currency to buy new cards and boost your deck or just buy them directly with real money. This is a method that is similar to the one in other popular games in the genre, like Blizzard’s Hearthstone or Magic The Gathering Arena.

GWENT has been up for a while and it already has plenty of content and cards to discover, but now it’s getting even more with the release of a new expansion, Novigrad. This will introduce more than ninety cards, new ways of playing the game, and a new faction, the Syndicate.

Don’t be fooled by the city’s beauty and wealth — it’s rotten to the core. Crime lords are vying for control of the streets using any means at their disposal. Yet strange events are becoming more commonplace. Once rival gangs are now being seen working together. The chaos is evolving, but why? And more importantly, into what?

Other than the new cards, Novigrad is also adding a new type of resource to the game, the Crowns. A whole new bunch of game mechanics will let you gain and spend those Crowns trigger effects in certain cards like, for example, the Fee effect form the card shown below, Grand Inquisitor Helveed.

If you like the world of The Witcher, GWENT is a great way of learning more about Geralt and the world where the story of the game takes place. It´s not difficult to learn how to play and you can do it for free. Novigrad will arrive on June 28th so you still have enough time to practice before you can experience what it has to offer.
