Been waiting on Gwent: The Witcher Card Game to finally arrive? Well, it just might be around the corner at last.
Wanna play some Gwent?
Spinning out of the hugely successful RPG series that is The Witcher, Gwent is an all together different beast. A card game (which you probably already guessed), there isn’t so much dragon-slaying and questing to be done here. What you’ll be doing instead is slaying your opponent in a game of skill and chance. So just a bit different.
Gwent has been delayed up to this point, but it looks like it might finally be almost here. Though, it’s important to note that this is not a closed beta. Dubbed ‘Kill the Servers’ by the team, it’s a stress test on the game’s servers that CD Project Red needs your help with.
The event kicks off on the 23rd (tomorrow) and will have second date on the 27th. No, it’s not the 23rd through the 27th, just those two days in specific. This also isn’t a complete game that you’ll be playing as you attempt to Kill the Servers, it’s still in a pre-beta form. I assume you’ll probably be able to get a glimpse of what the final product will look like though. But really, you should already know what to expect from it if you played The Witcher games in the past.
If being a part of the stress test sounds good to you however, you’ll want to click here and sign up. You won’t get entry into the actual beta if you do, but CD Project Red says that there should be plenty of room in that as well, for interested parties.
