CD Projekt Red have announced at E3 that the card battler mini-game Gwent, previously part of The Witcher III, is getting a standalone release.

The game will contain a full single player campaign, as well as multiplayer options, allowing for cross-platform play with Xbox One and PC, the platforms on which the game will be releasing first. The player can recruit from four factions, each with their own tests of skill that can be used in battle.

This was the result of fan requests as CD Projekt Red said they had received “thousands of requests” following the release of The Witcher III.

Gwent will be releasing for Xbox One and PC this September. A closed beta is also available for people to register and participate in.
