After months in private beta, Gwent opens up for everyone starting today. To celebrate, CD Projekt Red released a brand new cinematic trailer starring Geralt and Ciri in the midst of a pretty epic game. To be fair though, this is actually how it feels playing Gwent (results may vary).
The cinematic trailer is really just a pretty cool bit of marketing given the chance to see The Witcher 3's two leads back in action. The style also does a good job at capturing the live card animations in the game which is one of my favorite touches from my time with Gwent.
The public beta is currently available for players on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. I've very much enjoyed my time with the closed beta, and I'm looking forward to jumping back into the public beta now that more players will be checking out Gwent.
Originally a card minigame in The Witcher 3, Gwent expanded into a full project for CD Projekt Red, with plans for a full single-player campaign that fleshes out even more of the Witcher universe. Alongside the recently announced Netflix series based on the original novels, the Witcher is branching off in some interesting ways.
