  • Gwent The Witcher Card Game

Now that the Gwent Challenger tournament is over, and the closed beta test has ended, CD Projekt Red are bringing forth the public open beta test for their Witcher III spinoff. Which is one week away.

As previously mentioned, the Gwent Public Beta will begin on May 24, 2017, and will be open to everyone playing on the PlayStation 4 and other platforms.

All things considered, with CD Projekt Red letting anyone download and play Gwent on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One soon through the open beta, there's a good chance that it could captivate gamers who already enjoyed The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and it has the possibility to draw in newcomers as well.

Both card collections and player progress will need to be started over from scratch, and the closed beta period will end two days beforehand on 22nd May so that servers can be wiped clean and prepped for the game's fresh start. A precise start time for the beta hasn't been set, but server status updates will be available on the studio's Facebook page and Twitter feed.

In the transition from closed to open beta, the game will be resetting all progress of players which now have their hands on the technical test server. However, those that took part in the previous Closed Beta won't be left completely out in the cold, as they'll be rewarded with Card Kegs, along with other in-game rewards. It lets people try a game before a final release, which could create word-of-mouth buzz. This is a free-to-play title that puts you, not your cards, in the center of the action.

The team will host a special live broadcast on its Twitch channel at 10 PM EDT to provide a rundown of how the public beta will run, and what players will be able to access. After being in closed beta since 2016, it will be nice to see how the general public feels about the game. It develops and publishes video games for personal computers and video game consoles.
