Decks Filled With Holiday Spirit

CD Projekt Red just released a holiday update for their popular online PvP game GWENT: The Witcher Card Game. The update not only added a ton of holiday cosmetics but also added a new event-exclusive currency system too.


GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is an online collectible card game where players duel each other with carefully crafted decks. You collect cards from decks that belong to 6 different factions. Each faction has its own playstyle, strengths and weaknesses. You play cards that increase and/or decrease various stats on the two rows on your side of the board, the melee row and the ranged row. Once a player wins two of the three rounds, they win the game. The player with the highest total strength on their side of the board wins the round. GWENT is a spinoff of the card game with the same name found in The Witcher game and book series.

The annual Winter Event added a new currency system called pinecones. This new currency can be used to buy event-limited cosmetics such as cardbacks and titles. Pinecones are only available during the event’s run time and can be used through a dedicated page in the Reward Book. Players can obtain pinecones by playing the game every day, completing daily quests and winning matches in Standard, Seasonal and Draft game modes.

Players who own the Geralt Leader skin will also have access to additional content during the event. The content in question is two special contracts that each have a unique reward. A red hat and candy cane trinket for Geralt will be rewarded to the player upon completing these contracts.

Finally, GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is also having a sale on its in-game store. Players can purchase the Midwinter Bundle and Frozen Bundle on sale.
