GWENT Is Coming to iOS on October 29; Available for Pre-Order Now
GWENT--the popular card game that spawned out of The Witcher series made its way to several platforms as a dedicated game earlier this year. Earlier this year, rumors sprung up about the game making its much-awaited mobile debut on iOS. Today, CD Project Red confirmed that the game will make its way to iOS on October 29th as a full release.
GWENT on iOS combines the full feature set of the PC version with controls reimagined for the touch interface. The core gameplay remains more or less the same as it was in The Witcher 3. But, there are new features as well, which make the experience more satisfying. Some of them include full 3D scenes when checking out cards, characters making comments during heated moments of the match and more. Players can now swap three cards at the beginning of a match instead of two, spy cards are no longer overpowered, and decks have more distinct features, which greatly help balance the game. Here's the official game trailer that should give you a rough idea about the game.
Progress and purchases are shared between iOS and PC (using GOG account), so players can easily switch platforms anytime. Additionally, GWENT has built-in 4K textures on eligible devices. Supported devices include iPhone 6S or newer, iPad Mini 4 and newer, iPad 5th generation and newer, iPad Air 2 and newer and all iPad Pro devices. More details about the iOS version of GWENT will be shared this weekend during GWENT Challenger which will air on the official CD PROJEKT RED channel on Twitch on the 14th and 15th of September.
Before you ask, yes GWENT will feature in-app purchases. Like Hearthstone, they'll probably be in the form of card packs. There is no word about an Android release just yet, but we can expect to hear more about it once the game is out on iOS. Head over to the App Store listing and pre-register if you're excited about the game.
