Gwent: A Witcher Card Game is set to be given some fresh blood later this with the arrival of Gwent: Crimson Curse, the CCG’s first ever card expansion. I thought Gwent was still kicking around in beta form but evidently not. Consider me bamboozled.

Crimson Curse heralds the arrival of Dettlaff van der Eretein, a higher vampire (of Blood & Wine fame), who’s also summoned his bloodsucking kin. They won’t be forming an entirely new faction though; the 100+ new cards will be split with 14 faction cards per faction along with 31 neutral. There’ll be something to slot into your whichever faction you roll with, basically. “Dryads of Brokilon, Cintrian mages, Toussaint knights, Svalblod cultists and vampires are all joining the fight that will shape the future of The Witcher world,” says CD Projekt RED.

The new cards are being revealed piecemeal over on the official site, with five already unveiled. There appears to be quite a lot of focus on triggering explosions after kills, spreading the damage out among the enemy ranks.

The Gwent: Crimson Curse expansion will be coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 28th. It’ll also be free, in a roundabout way, with players able to unlock the new cards through card packs, or stumping up the cash to buy them outright.

I’ve fallen off of a Gwent a bit since I was endlessly waiting for the beta to finish, but this expansion sounds as if it could be a great time for new players to hop in, or for lapsed players to play one more hand.

This looks actually really good, just started playing Gwent and it's amazing so far and looks like it gets even better.
