Gwent (Polish: Gwint) is ancient dwarven card game mentioned in Baptism of Fire novel by Andrzej Sapkowski (as barrel for UK and US readers) and featured in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. On June 15, 2016 CD Projekt RED anounced the development of a stand-alone Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. GWENT will be available at release for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 as a free-to-play game that puts you, not your cards, in the center of the action.
- "Invented by dwarves and perfected over centuries of tavern table play, Gwent is a game of initial simplicity and ultimate depth, something beloved by both road-weary travellers during long nights around the campfire and elegant nobles looking to liven up dragging dinner parties."
There are five "sets" or decks of cards: Northern Realms, Nilfgaardian Empire, Scoia'tael, Skellige and Monsters. You choose one of these to play with provided that the set has at least 22 Unit cards. Each faction set includes unique cards and leaders. All five factions, when chosen as your active deck, provide a different bonus during a match.
