CD Projekt RED have officially revealed the stand-alone Gwent game at the Xbox E3 press conference.
The card game from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will offer up cross-play between PC and consoles, a full single-player campaign, and rejigged visuals. Four decks will be available – Skellige Warriors, Northern Realms, Scoia’tael, and Monsters – with a beta coming in September. And no, I’m not sure where Nilfgaard has gone either.
As you might expect, it looks like it’ll have microtransactions, and it’ll get new cards/mechanics/single-player adventures as time proceeds.
You can apparently register for the beta over on playgwent.com, although the beta will be multiplayer only. Other than that, not much to say: it’s Gwent and it’s stand-alone. What more do you want?

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
