Gamers can start playing immediately by visiting FAQ on PC, or — on consoles — download the client directly through Xbox Store or PlayStation Store.
“Public Beta is an important step towards Gwent’s final release,” said Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of CD PROJEKT RED. “We’re opening the gates to everyone who wanted to play, but didn’t make it into the Closed Beta, and — at the same time — we’re introducing some pretty significant content and gameplay changes like adding animated versions of cards for every card in the game, new starter decks, or how weather cards work,” Iwiński adds. “I’m extra curious how all of the community feedback we’ve incorporated will resonate with both current players and those who’re just starting. Please keep the feedback coming, we’re listening!”
In addition to the cinematic trailer, CD Projekt RED has also released a gameplay video presenting Gwent’s features, and a set of faction videos covering the playstyles of each of the game’s five factions.
