A new game in the Witcher universe will be released tomorrow

Now called Gwent: Rogue Mage is a deckbuilding roguelike entirely focused on singleplayer. The standard edition costs 10 euros, a deluxe edition is available for 20 euros. The latter includes a few skins, maps, and other cosmetic items for the multiplayer version of Gwent.

Gwent: Rogue Mage brings single player to the card game

was announced the whole of IGN, who also spoke to Director Vladimir Tortsov. According to the director, Gwent: Rogue Mage was created because years after the release of The Witcher 3, some players wanted a PvE campaign for Gwent.

“While Multiplayer Gwent is a fantastic game for those looking for a great PvP multiplayer experience, we fully understand that many Witcher players loved Gwent’s original mini-game for very different reasons. With Rogue Mage, we want that audience give a reason to play modern Gwent in whatever format they prefer.”

Games like this are no longer uncommon. For example, Slay the Spire and Monster Train have had some success and are viewed fairly positively by players overall. So it’s not a big surprise that CD Projekt Red wants to enter this market with their own card game.
