Now, this is different from the GWENT that you can play inside of The Witcher 3. So players should temper their expectations a little bit before going into playing it thinking it'll just be a mobile port of the console mini-game.
It's definitely not that, but it's still quite a fun game and already seems to be getting some good reviews from users. Currently it's sitting at a 4.7 star rating with a total rating number of 14,981, so that's pretty good.
That being said, even though this is different from the GWENT mini-game it still has plenty of familiar traits and gameplay elements.
GWENT: The Witcher card game blends both CCG and TCG genres
Once you start playing you'll notice there are elements of both the Collectible Card Game and Trading Card Game genres.
While you can't play the game in single player matches in a story campaign of sorts, there is PvP-based multiplayer so you can compete against other real players for dominance. There are more than a few different ways to play too.
CD Projekt Red also hails this as a fair and fun experience. The aim is that you don't have to spend a ton of money to acquire specific or special cards. You simply play the game and collect new cards as you progress.
Once you acquire more cards you can use those to build out and expand your deck. Or just build a completely new one that might offer you more versatility in your plays.
It's easy enough to learn but still offers a good challenge
It's pretty simple to pick up and play and that's one thing that players will like if they've never played a card game before.
It still offers a good challenge though. Which means there's likely going to be some uphill battles for newcomers. They shouldn't be so uphill that the game becomes too difficult, but it'll definitely be enough of a challenge to keep veteran players interested.
GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is a free title. There are in-game purchases that are optional, but just playing the game enough should get you everything you need. And it shouldn't be a grind fest either, meaning you likely won't have to play for weeks before getting something you need or want for your deck.
