GWENT: The Witcher Card Game | Midwinter

GWENT, the digital trading card game based on the Witcher series, is also receiving a large holiday update. Much like the previous Fortnite update, it is more that the GWENT update also happens to be a holiday update than the fact that it is specifically a holiday update.

While it is technically based on the in-universe holiday of Midwinter, the over 100 new cards as well as a plethora of smaller tweaks for the user experience and a host of balancing changes for various cards shows its hand; this is a major update.

Here's a list of some of the many changes:

  • Over 100 new cards, many with new, never before seen abilities
  • A daily quest system, because what persistent experience would be complete without one of these?
  • A new deck builder/ card replacement screen
  • Better visuals and card animations
  • Increased milling values for a lot of cards (specifics found here) for the 3 days following the release of the patch, which means it should run from December 19 to December 21.
  • And many more small additions. 


That's all (for now), folks! There's plenty of other games in the woodworks that we're keeping an eye on whose devs have not announced clear plans, so be sure to check back often to see if any of your favorite titles are having holiday celebrations worth returning for.
