User Experience Update is now live!

New update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now available for PC, PS4 and Xbox One! With update 2.2, we’ve focused on reworking the tutorial and starter decks to improve the first-time user experience. We’ve also set a minimum number of units to be included in every deck to 13, and added brand new Tavern Board to the game!

Full list of changes:
  • Opponent AI in Training Mode has been improved.
  • Matches are now played on one unified game board rather than two distinct halves from different game boards.
  • Valid decks must now contain a minimum of 13 units.
  • Changes in Deck Builder UI.
  • Updated Shupe's VFX when opening goodies.

  • Starter decks have been reworked to showcase more faction cards and faction-specific mechanics.
