Gwent’s single-player campaign has been delayed to 2018. The Witcher Card Game was originally slated for a 2017 release date, but has been pushed back to accommodate a bigger campaign.
Here are the best Gwent cards and decks so far.
The first story campaign coming to Gwent is Thronebreaker, a 15-hour adventure featuring Meve, a northern ruler who lead a guerilla war against Nilfgaard, whose story didn’t really make it into the main games but was present in the novels. It was due to be released this year, but an announcement from CD Projekt RED co-founder Marcin Iwiński says it’s “moving to 2018.”
Iwiński says “we decided to increase the campaign’s scope and need more time to work on it. Shifting release windows is always something we approach seriously, however, we’ll never hesitate to do it if we feel you’ll get a better game as a result,” before assuring players that “we will do our best to make the final game worth the additional wait.”
Iwiński goes on to say that the upcoming full release of Gwent means “we’ll be increasing the tempo of multiplayer update releases.” That means new cards, challenges, and vanity items will be appearing more often, alongside more frequent patches and balance changes.
