Gwent's closed beta will kick off for the Xbox one and PC in September, 2016.
One of the more... interesting pre-E3 announcements we got wind of was CD Projekt's Red stand-alone Gwent game, taking the popular Witcher 3 in-game trading card game, and turning it into its own thing. Now, we've finally gotten our first glimpse at the game, and it's looking pretty good.
In addition to the trailer, a little bit of info was also revealed. Gwent will be a free to play title, launching at first on the Xbox One and PC, with a closed beta coming this September. A PS4 release will follow sometime in the future. If you're interested in signing up, you can go over to the official play Gwent website and sing up for your platform of choice.
The game will feature "optional microtransactions," but CD Projekt Red did not mention exactly what they will be. It will also feature cross-play, at least between the Xbox One and PC versions of the game.
The game will be primarily multiplayer, with each game played over a best-of-three series of rounds, but will also feature a single-player campaign.
