CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announced today that GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is coming to smartphones. Crimson Curse, the first expansion for GWENT, will be released this Thursday on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The smartphone version of GWENT will allow gamers around the world to experience the game’s skill-oriented CCG play on the go. The smartphone version of GWENT will be arriving later this year on iPhones. Details regarding an Android release will be announced at a later date.
“We’ve been preparing long and hard to adapt GWENT to smartphones,” said Jason Slama, Game Director of GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, CD PROJEKT RED. “Beautiful visuals aside, we’ve tailored much of our technology, including GOG Galaxy which powers GWENT’s multiplayer, to support mobile devices. I think our vision for bringing GWENT to smartphones combines the best we have to offer both in terms of graphics and gameplay. I can’t wait to share more details on the subject with you later this year.”
Crimson Curse is GWENT’s first expansion, introducing over 100 new cards to the game, many of which will revolve around new abilities and mechanics. The expansion will also add five new leader characters to the game which include series fan-favorites, as well as characters never-before-seen in The Witcher games.
Today is the last chance for gamers to take advantage of the special Crimson Curse pre-order offer. The Pre-order Pack contains 40 Crimson Curse Kegs at a special discounted price, the Blood Armor legendary leader skin for Unseen Elder, as well as an animated Crimson Curse cardback. The offer will expire upon the expansion’s launch.
The Crimson Curse expansion will release on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 28th.
In GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, gamers clash with their friends in fast-paced duels that combine bluffing, on-the-fly decision making and careful deck construction. The game is played over a best-of-three series of rounds, as players unleash their hand by slinging spells and diverse units with special abilities, and use clever tricks to deceive their opponents.
