During a panel at PAX East CD Projekt RED revealed a new detail on the upcoming new expansion for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Blood And Wine.

A new deck for Gwent will be added in the expansion, and since Toussaint is all sunny and bright the new faction will be… Skellige.

The first four cards have been revealed (you can see them in the gallery below.

The first is the Mushroom: Skellige has special units named berserkers, and if you play mushrooms, those berserkers will turn into bears.

Then we get the Drakkar for the siege row, the special character Madman Lugos  and the Golden Cockerel.

On top of that, it was released that the collector’s edition of Blood and Wine will include the physical decks for Nilfgaard and The Northern Realms.

Incidentally, the panelists asked the audience to cheer if they wanted a stand-alone mobile version of Gwent. They recorded it, and promised to show it to their bosses in Warsaw.
