Nilfgaard faction coming to GWENT

For those of you enjoying The Witcher card game will be happy to know that CD Projekt Red is planning a huge content update for February 6th 2017. In this content update we’ll be introduced to the Nilfgaard faction, who will be perfect for those who want to take control of the battlefield before making their opponents cry in shame.

Nilfgaard gives the players a new set of gameplay mechanics, including 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 itself, will increase the games card count by 60 including new dedicated cards for existing factions (Northern Realms, Scoia’tael, Skellige and Monsters) and Neutral Cards that are able to be used by everyone.

For those unfamiliar with Gwent, it is the stand-alone card game from Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which gained so much Acclaim that CD Projekt Red decided to spin-off into its own multiplayer game. The PC/Xbox One version of the game features new cards (including some cool animated ones), new powers, and more defined rules for the game.
