CD Projekt Red has announced Way of the Witcher, the next free expansion for its card game, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. You won’t have long to wait either, as it’s coming to the game on 8th December.
This next expansion will introduce 70 new cards to play, each one focusing on the origins of witchers and their creator, Alzur. Many of the cards being added to the ever-growing roster will be faction-specific, but ten of them will be neutral that can be used with any Gwent faction.
As expected, there will also be a bunch of new abilities and mechanics to be added to the game alongside the new Way of the Witcher expansion. For example, Adrenaline will trigger when you have a certain number of cards left to play and will provide you with a fresh bunch of synergies to use for new advantages over opponents.
To coincide with this announcement for Way of the Witcher, you can now pre-order a few different bundles from Gwent’s in-game store. This includes Card Kegs, which contain many premium cards from the expansion. Other items contained in these bundles include the Alzur premium card and Alzur’s Laboratory board, a special shape shifting card back, as well as “The Witcher” player title. These bundles range in price, between £11 and £42, and can be viewed on the official website for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. There, you can also find a few examples of new cards that are coming with the expansion when it launches next month.
The Way of the Witcher will be released for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game on 8th December. If you want to start playing before then, you can download the game now on the iOS App Store or Google Play for Android. It’s a free to play title with in-app purchases.
