Here is a quick overview of the game and its features if this is your first time hearing about it:

In GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, gamers clash with their friends in fast-paced duels that combine bluffing, on-the-fly decision making and careful deck construction. The game is played over a best-of-three series of rounds, as players unleash their hand by slinging spells and diverse units with special abilities and use clever tricks to deceive their opponents.

Deck Building

Become a master cardsmith and battle friends from around the world!

Pick your side – command 5 different factions: the mighty Nilfgaardian Empire, proud Skellige, brutal Monsters, cunning Northern Realms or shadowy Scoia’tael.
Build your deck – collect new cards and deploy armies full of versatile units, unique heroes and rule-flipping cards that summon fog to blind your opponent’s archers or call down dragon fire to destroy their strongest units.
Craft new cards – break down unwanted cards and craft new ones to build an ever-evolving deck.

Rules & Tricks

If you can’t overpower your enemy, make sure you know how to outsmart them!

Force their hand – with limited cards per game, lure your opponent into draining their resources!
Lose the battle, win the war – win the entire game by learning how to cleverly lose a round.
Hold the line – play your cards across three rows, infantry, ranged and siege, and build a formation to counter your opponent’s strategy.

Game Modes

Embark on a story-driven single player journey, or just play online for fun, fame and glory!

Story Campaign – lead mighty armies during prominent events straight from The Witcher universe.
Friendly Matches – test your deck, try out new strategies, or just show off your collection of rare, animated cards.
Ranked Matches – rise through player-driven divisions and advance to the Pro League.

The technical beta for PS4 will be available in Europe, North America and South America starting March 31st and ending April 3, 2017. GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is currently in closed beta on Xbox One and PC.
