CD Projekt Red has announced the next expansion for its The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt spin-off GWENT. The Way of the Witcher expansion introduces several Witcher characters into the game with new artwork more.
The Way of the Witcher EP includes 70 new cards. Many of the cards are slowly being released on the official website. So far, a few of the new Witcher characters are introduced from all of the existing schools. Also added is one of the greatest sorcerers in the Continent’s history named Alzur.
Many of the cards are faction-specific. However, players will also gain access to ten neutral cards that can be used with all factions. The expansion also comes with new abilities and mechanics. One of them is called “Adrenaline,” which only triggers when players have a specific number of cards or less to play.
With all of the new content, players will have fresh synergies to test out and take advantage of in the game.
Sometimes you need a monster…
… to slay a monster. ⚔️
Way of the Witcher releases December 8th!
