GWENT is a great game, there's no denying that. As a full-version spin-off from the side-game found in The Witcher 3, GWENT has been very well received when launched on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2018. Up until now, though, most mobile devices haven't had a look in. GWENT was released on iOS last year, leaving those with Android devices left out. That's about to be rectified.
Announced today, GWENT is finally making its way to more mobile devices, Android in particular. It will be launched next month, on the 24th of March, adapted for mobile formats by bringing in controls designed for touch-screen devices and will allow for cross-play between all mobile and PC versions.

Those interested in playing GWENT on their android phone or tablet can pre-register over on Google Play, with the added bonus of a unique imperial golem avatar for those who pre-register. This news comes just two months after the announcement that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions would not be supported any more.
As for the blurb of GWENT on Google Play, here's what it says:
