Gwent is a card game from the books of The Witcher, before becoming a mini-game in The Witcher video games. Geralt of Rivia’s favourite card game has become so popular that it has been turned into its own spin-off game for PC, consoles and possibly iOS. Well, now Android users can finally have fun, though many years late.
In Gwent, you build up armies of cards to beat your opponent, the cards slowly increasing in power as you go. It’s pretty standard fare for card games, especially digital games like this, Hearthstone and The Elder Scrolls: Legends, but there are also some cool mechanics here. We recommend that you get started to find out for yourself.
Though you are not a fan of the Witcher franchise, this card game might have enough to attract you, and the mobile game seems far enough from the version presented in the video game that you don’t have to need to have played the Witcher 3 version to understand.
You have an interest in installing the game Gwent Android, you can find it on the Play Store. Here. If you are an iOS user who has never been familiar with the game, but this article inspired you, it is available on the App Store here.
Of course, one of Gwent’s main draws in The Witcher 3 was to fight random villagers to win their cards to add to your collection, and it’s not exactly possible in the real world, but if you want that thrill, why not take The Witcher 3 game instead?
The Witcher franchise is top-rated than ever, thanks to the new TV shows produced by Netflix. If you are not a game player, but you have seen the TV show launched last year ending starring Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, you probably can not wait for season 2.
Til then, the folks at CD Projekt Red, the Polish studio behind The Witcher game shows, is bringing its Witcher themed card game to Android phones. Gwent is a sophisticated yet delightful card game that started as a mini-game in Witcher 3. Today, together with Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering is one of the best popular card games available on PC and mobile.
How does it function?
The card game is turn-based, and each game takes three rounds. Every player must play one card each turn from a deck of at least 25 badges. Each layer belongs to a faction that offers different play styles. Each camp has various “leaders” who each have individual abilities.
After installing the game, I made the following observations over a brief two-game period with the game:
You can sync your Gwent Android profile to your PC/Console profile allowing you to carry over your progress from whichever platform you were playing on before installing on mobile With an 18:9 aspect-ratio, the likelihood of having black bars is pretty high with most modern smartphones having a 21:9 aspect ratio The touch controls are well-thought-out and right at home on the touch-based
