<span class="bold">GWENT: The Witcher Card Game</span> just got another major update that's all about positioning: Positioning the cards inside the battlefield and positioning GWENT in the place it needs to be for its journey forward. Here's what CD PROJEKT RED have to say about both the recently implemented and upcoming changes:

Hey there!

It’s been a busy time for GWENT, with our visit to PAX East and the announcement of GWENT Challenger — an official The Witcher Card Game tournament. And it actually gets busier from here on out. We’ve just released a new update for the game and we’re here to tell you more about the features it introduces, how they lay the foundations for what we have in store for you in the future, and what that’s going to be.


One of the major features of the latest update is Unit Positioning. You can now choose where you want to place cards on the row — this change factors heavily into how abilities interact with units on the board.

Take a look.

Up to this point, there haven’t been many ways to let your opponent know what you’re thinking. This changes with Taunts, short phrases that allow players to communicate by clicking on their avatar.

Take a look.

The board now features a Move History. It lets you review which cards have been played over the course of the match, which can come in handy when you’re looking to outplay your opponent. Like they say, knowledge is power.

Take a look.

Speaking of the board, we’ve given it a general facelift to make it more legible and accessible, letting you see more even when you’re in the heat of battle.

Take a look.

The latest update also introduces changes to cards and tweaks improving the balance and overall experience. There’s actually a lot of those. You can check them all out in the <span class="bold">full changelog</span>.


The updated board and visual tweaks introduced in the Positioning Update are the first step of a visual overhaul coming to GWENT. This isn’t going to happen overnight, but rather over the course of the next several major updates. To give you a sense of what to expect, we’re talking new targeting indicators and card highlights, card movement animations and shadows, and unique effects for abilities.

We’ve got more premium animated versions of cards in the works, with the plan being for every card in the game to have its own animated variant. We’ll definitely be hiding some easter eggs in there, so make sure to be on the lookout for these once they’re in the game.

We are also committed to adding more cards to GWENT in general in the not-too-distant future. And with all these new cards set to arrive, as well as other upcoming changes, starter decks will be getting a refresh, too.

Card abilities and descriptions will be getting a revamp as well, so that they’re more intuitive. A big part of this will be standardizing how certain cards work and behave after being played, resulting in simpler and more reliable ability priorities.

Using this chance, we’d like to thank you for the amazing support you’re giving GWENT. You comments and suggestions are a tremendous help in shaping the game and making it a better experience.

This is great, looking forward to the future of Gwent!
I really love this game!!!!
I just verified Gwent, but it didn't get updated. You didn't release the update yet, I guess?

Apologies for that, the team hit a snag with the PC version. The patch will be deployed as soon as we get it fixed :)

Sorry for the delay.
Thank you for finally fixing Ermion! Except now the deck he's played in is unplayable. Since this is just beta would be great to refund scraps for crafted cards you nerf. That way players who focussed on building a deck only to see it removed from the meta can actually play something viable after patches

Hi there,

If you want to force the update, please run a "Verify & Repair" check on the game :)
Much appreciated the updated coming to the public server!

Cannot wait to see the changes as I believe they will vastly improve the player experiance.

Thank you.
There we go. Its updating now. Thank you :)
Had the game open when I refreshed the Gwent page on the GOG Galaxy client and it detected the update. Then it shut down my game to download/install the update. I am kinda new to Gwent so do you ussualy get a popup message that you have to update or is it just a beta thing, because it would be kinda unfortunate if you where in a ranked game.
终于更新了 我的天
Rag No Rak card now makes no sense; They might as well have trashed it completely.
Well, what can I say. I expected to be disappointed - and I am. Good-bye weather. Anyway, I expected a greater disaster to come, yet so far as I read the changelog, it is not so.

AND - thanks for making America... Sorry, meaning Aglais, great again :D

P. S. : Oh yes, and goodbye my little precious Nekkers too :-(
ShuaiHui: 终于更新了 我的天
不要讓我們過早慶祝 :-)
