Imo, to say Gwent is not 'sold here' is rather disingenuous. Yes, the base game is free to download, but clearly the whole point of the game is to make money through microtransactions, which is a much less consumer-friendly business model than an upfront charge. Because that model entices players to spend more than they would have otherwise and makes it difficult for players to plan their spending (why do you think MTX has been so successful and popular with AAA corporations?). So, they are advertising and selling microtransactions in the game. Clearly, the game is bringing in money for CDPR, or it wouldn't be here.
Gersen: And Gwent is not "sold" here, the only Gwent related part that is sold here, which is supposed to be Gwent single player part, is Throne Breaker and it is DRM-free.
Gwent is a DRM- and MTX-ridden piece of trashware and doesn't belong on GOG.com.
