CD Projekt Red’s new Gwent game has more to offer than we thought.
Announced at E3 2016 as a free video game that will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, Gwent will include a competitive multiplayer mode as well as several campaigns playable in single-player mode.
So if you enjoyed playing Gwent in The Witcher 3, you will probably love this spinoff, and you might want to sign-up for the upcoming beta.
Back to the single-player mode now.
According to Kotaku’s report, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will allow us to assume control of different characters and follow their stories.
Each campaign has 10+ hours of gameplay and characters will be controlled from a top-down perspective on a 2D map.
What’s even more intriguing is that players can also make different choices.
For example, you can stick to your objective or ignore it and explore different areas on the map. If you encounter an enemy, a Gwent match starts.
Mateusz Tomaszkiewicz, narrative designer at CD Projekt Red, told Kotaku that he had to take a look at The Banner Saga and Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes for inspiration.
“I really like card games in general, but I didn’t so far find any with extensive story modes.”
Karolina Stachyra also works on the single-player campaign. She is the one who wrote the Bloody Baron quest in The Witcher 3.
Knowing that up to this point CD Projekt Red delivered only outstanding games, it’s easy to imagine that they are working hard to make Gwent: The Witcher Card Game as good as their previous projects.
