Gwent Updates – Gwent Update: Feb 6, 2017

Jan 5, 2017 • • • • • List of Updates • • • • • Feb 7, 2017


We’re excited to announce the release of the latest update to GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, introducing a new playable faction — Nilfgaardian Empire.

With its control and espionage oriented playstyle, Nilfgaard equips players with gameplay mechanics that allow for revealing cards in the opponent’s hand, controlling the order of cards in player decks, and use of disloyal units, among others.

The update expands the number of cards available in the game by over 60 — new additions also include faction-specific cards for Northern Realms, Scoia'tael, Skellige and Monsters, as well as neutral cards usable by every faction.
