If you like card type of games, then we have some good news for you, as CD Projekt RED has just announced the arrival of the “Gwent”. However, don’t get too excited, as this will be just a closed BETA for now, which means that if you are selected, you should get invited today or tomorrow via an email.

The “Gwent” Closed BETA version will be available only on PC and Xbox One and whoever gets invited will be able to start playing the game on October 25, 2016 at 10AM Pacific Time/1PM Eastern Time/7PM Central European Summer Time.

If you’ve played “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”, then you’ve already heard about “Gwent”. In fact, “Gwent” is a stand alone version of the face-paced card game that you can play in “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”. You should know that CD Projekt has announced that’s working on this game back in June 2016, during the Microsoft’s E3 Xbox briefing.

Another important note is that the game will be free to play, but it will have some optional in-game purchases. In other words, using real money, you will most likely be able to purchase cards or something like that. While the BETA version of “Gwent” will be released only for PC and Xbox One, it seems that the game will also be launched for the PlayStation 4 console.

It seems that this game will actually be more than the game that you could play in “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt”, which means that it will include in-game assets such as card voice-overs, card art or competitive PvP mode. To make things even better, the game will feature cross-platform play between the Windows PC and Xbox One versions.

You can still register for the closed BETA version of “Gwent” via its official website. As we’ve told you above, if you are selected, you will receive an email which will contain more information about how to activate the game on your PC or Xbox One console.
