The Witcher 3 is one of the best video games to be released on the Xbox One and PC. One of the great things about this game is an interesting little mini-game fans have come to enjoy called Gwent. To capitalize on the success of other digital card games like Hearthstone, CD Projekt Red has decided to create a standalone game centered around it.

This isn’t your regular card game because there’s a story here to be told. Furthermore, we understand CD Projekt Red wants to tell this story in stages, so expect several pieces of downloadable content before the game can be finished by players in its entirety.

Here’s a short description of the game via the official website:

  • Brought to you by the creators of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the single player campaign of GWENT® thrusts players into an event-rich world they can roam freely. To be released in episodes, the story unfolding in the campaign will feature the choice and consequence mechanic the Witcher games are known for.

It seems as if the developer of this game is going all out,with this card game, and we can understand why. We hope key changes are made to the gameplay to support a full-blown experience, because while the mini-game is fun, it will need a lot more to keep it interesting as a standalone title.

Microsoft showed off several key titles at its E3 conference, though the reveals of new Xbox One S and Project Scorpio took the cake.
