FAQs or Frequently Asked Questions about Gwent will be covered on this page. Below is a list of FAQs from the community with their answers (where known). If you have a question that is not answered in the list below, put it in the comments section for an answer.



General FAQ:

I'm new. Where to begin?

  • Check out the New Player Help page for an all-you-need-to-know crash course.


Is GWENT a free game?

  • GWENT is a free to play game offering optional in-game purchases.


Where can I play the game?

  • The game is expected to release on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.


When can I play the game?

  • The Closed Beta will launch in September 2016 for Xbox One and PC, later to expand to PlayStation 4.


What's the release date?

  • We plan to go out of beta when the game is feature-rich, polished and tested sufficiently. Consequently, we'll launch when we feel we're ready to give you a game that rocks!


How can I sign up for the Beta?

  • To apply, simply visit playgwent.com and sign up. After we launch in September 2016, and if you're selected, we'll send you an email with detailed instructions on what to do next. Please keep in mind that we send out invitations in waves based on internal testing criteria.


Why do you need to beta-test GWENT?

  • While the core of the game remains the same, GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is much more than the game you used to play in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. This includes in-game assets like card art, card voice-overs and even skills, and what's even more important, it features a competitive PVP mode we built from scratch. That's why we do need to beta-test it and we would really appreciate your help in this regard.


Do you plan to introduce new content as the game matures?

  • You bet we do! As time passes, we plan to introduce new cards, mechanics, single-player adventures, language versions and game modes.


Do you support cross-play and cross-buy?

  • We can confirm cross-play between Xbox One and PC -- all other options are being discussed.


Do you plan on wiping progress during Beta?

  • Yes. It's normal during betas.


Will there be a box edition of GWENT?

  • There are no such plans at the moment.


Do I need to know The Witcher universe to have fun?

  • Despite GWENT is based on The Witcher games and books, you need not know anything about the universe to have fun. The game is a completely standalone experience.


Do I need to know anything about card games to enjoy Gwent?

  • Not at all! You'll learn the basics of GWENT in less than 15 minutes, but as you continue to play and experiment with different deck setups, you'll see card synergies and combinations unavailable to novice players. This is what makes GWENT both friendly for beginners and attractive to pros.



Can I play GWENT in single player mode?

  • In a nutshell: yes, but not during the upcoming Beta. We plan to release a fully featured single player adventure for GWENT, and a skirmish, player vs. AI mode.


What are the rules of GWENT?

  • Visit the Rules page for a complete breakdown of all you need to know.
