Gwent, the cardboard game primarily based on The Witcher Three mini-game of the identical title, is getting its first enlargement later this month. Crimson Curse, which is loosely primarily based round The Witcher 3’s second enlargement, Blood and Wine, will convey the game its first set of latest playing cards since its launch in October 2018.
A trailer launched yesterday introduces the Crimson Curse, a ritual which turns the moon pink and corrupts the land beneath, spawning new monsters. The trailer, which you’ll try in direction of the underside of this text, reveals that Detlaff, the upper vampire that seems in The Witcher Three DLC, is the reason for the curse, which suggests he’s comparatively prone to present up as a brand new legendary card.
That would make him considered one of “over 100” new additions to the game, which will likely be made up of 31 impartial playing cards and 14 playing cards for every of the game’s 5 factions. I’d think about a number of of these will likely be associated to the aforementioned DLC, however there are a number of different additions already confirmed.
The Northern Realms are prone to be boosted by characters like Duchess Anna Henrietta, whereas the Monsters faction will most likely see some lesser vampires be a part of Detalff in his management. Elsewhere, the Scoia’tael will profit from the addition of Dryad Rangers from the forest of Broklion, and the Skellige faction has Disgraced Brawler as its first new card.
Five playing cards have already been launched for the brand new enlargement, which is because of arrive in-game on March, however lots extra are set to be revealed till then. We’ve not seen something from the Nilfgaard faction but, however CDPR is already hinting at arrivals from the world over of The Witcher.

I’ve not likely been again to Gwent because the launch of Thronebreaker, the standalone single-player model of the game. That launched again in October alongside the game’s full launch, however now that the multiplayer model has its first main replace, I’ll be heading again in to test it out (after which inevitably returning to my newest Witcher Three runthrough).
