CD PROJEKT RED has announced that a new playable faction, Nilfgaard, will be arriving in GWENT: The Witcher Card game soon. The update in which Nilfgaard is being added, as well as other improvements and additions to the game, will be arriving on February 6.
Part of a major content update for the game, Nilfgaard introduces a playstyle focused on maintaining control over the battlefield. The faction equips players with a set of new gameplay mechanics such as revealing cards in the opponent’s hand, controlling the order of cards in player decks, and trickery based on the use of disloyal units.
The update expands the number of cards available in the game by over 60 — new additions also include faction-specific cards for Northern Realms, Scoia’tael, Skellige and Monsters, as well as neutral cards usable by every faction.
