News | Gwent: Rogue Mage now available on PC, iOS and Android

CD Projekt Red today released roguelike deckbuilder Gwent: Rogue Mage on PC and mobile.

The developer announced the game out of the blue yesterday. The game is a single player expansion to Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, but standalone and can be played by anyone.

Logically, the game uses many of the same game mechanics as Gwent, but in this case it is a PvE experience. Players explore a procedurally generated game card, engage in card battles, and unlock new cards for their deck. Players can also make various moral choices that are characteristic of the franchise.

Set hundreds of years before The Witcher hero Geralt of Rivia is born, the game revolves around the mage Alzur, whose mission is to create the very first Witcher. However, according to director Vladimir Tortsov, the game’s story should not be seen as official lore.

The game costs 9.99 euros, but for 19.99 euros you can buy a Deluxe Edition with, among other things, a multiplayer mode. For now, there are no plans to release Rogue Mage on consoles.

CD Projekt also released a standalone Gwent game with a focus on single player in 2018 called Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. In this, the focus was mainly on the story, the characters and RPG elements, while Rogue Mage mainly revolves around the Gwent gameplay.

Earlier, the developer announced that it is working on the next main game in The Witcher franchise. The game is being developed on Unreal Engine 5, but nothing else is known yet.

News | Gwent expansion Iron Judgment appears on October 2

Iron Judgment, the new addition to Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, will be available on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from 2 October.

The expansion adds more than eighty new cards to the digital card game. The new cards, for example, offer the possibility of setting up barricades. The story revolves around King Radovid who arrives with his army from the North to start the attack.

Last week CD Projekt Red already announced that Gwent would be coming to iOS (iPhone and iPad). The game appears in the App Store on October 29. The iOS version of Gwent uses the touchscreen and provides a simple way of playing. Moreover, progress and purchases can be transferred from PC to iOS and vice versa. In this way you can switch between the platforms quickly and easily.
