Gwent Is Getting a Single-Player Standalone Release

Gwent Is Getting a New Single-Player Standalone Game

Gwent, the card game from the Witcher universe, will be getting a single-player standalone release. This will be different from the more RPG-focused The Witcher Tales: Thronebreaker. As a fan of card games, this certainly has my attention.

This sounds like a potentially great option for those who don’t care for the competitive multiplayer scene. Currently titled Project Golden Nekker, the game is looking to be a captivating single-player experience.


Game director Vladimir Tortsov had this to say:

“It’s not another Witcher Tales [game] but something different. We’re aiming to provide a captivating single-player experience for players who prefer it over competitive multiplayer Gwent.”

Gwent is one of several popular card games up there with Hearthstone and Magic the Gathering. It’s also definitely the one I’ve played the least of. Personally, I’ve always been a fan of Magic the Gathering. It’s the game I play with my friends, so it is also my go-to online game. Gwent having a more single-player focused game could encourage me to move on to the multiplayer as I learn and understand the game better.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game

Don’t worry, this isn’t taking support away from the online aspect of Gwent. Gwent’s roadmap already revealed more expansions coming in April, July, October, and December. Hopefully, we get to see this new game during one of these months. It would make sense to introduce a new game with some new cards for both games to test out.
