Gwent digital card game now in public beta on Xbox One and PC. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game transitioned into public beta today which means that while it’s still not in its final complete form, but available to play by everyone on Xbox One and PC.

“Public Beta is an important step towards GWENT’s final release. We’re opening the gates to everyone who wanted to play, but didn’t make it into the Closed Beta, and at the same time we’re introducing some pretty significant content and gameplay changes like adding animated versions of cards for every card in the game, new starter decks, or how weather cards work,” CD PROJEKT RED’s co-founder Marcin Iwinski says in an official statement. “I’m extra curious how all of the community feedback we’ve incorporated will resonate with both current players and those who’re just starting. Please keep the feedback coming, we’re listening!”

In addition to new changes to existing cards and the launch of many more animated cards, this public beta version of the game also contains a new tutorial fully voiced by The Witcher 3’s actors, customizable avatars and frames, and a variety of Challenges for players to complete. A newly released gameplay trailer teases a full story mode for Gwent however it’s not available to play yet in the public beta.

The official game description:

GWENT IS FREE TO PLAY NOW! From the home of The Witcher, developer CD PROJEKT RED, comes a different type of collectible card game. Based on skill rather than luck, GWENT gives you command of highly customizable armies, and encourages use of strategy and deception to defeat opponents. Sling powerful unit & spell cards, and summon heroes with game-changing abilities — on GWENT’s battlefields, clever tricks used to deceive other players are always a viable tactic.
