It’s been a bit of a wait, but CD Projekt’s free-to-play Witcher-themed card-battler, Gwent, is finally heading to Android devices next month.
Gwent, if you’re unfamiliar and merely clicked this story on a daredevil whim, began life as a tavern-based distraction within CD Projekt’s masterful The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
Two years later, it emerged as a standalone free-to-play game, radically reworked to introduce more tactical nuance and depth. Since then, it’s received something of a reboot, and even an acclaimed story-driven solo spin-off known as Thronebreaker.
CD Projekt opted to end support for Gwent on Xbox One and PS4 last year in order to focus its attention on the more popular PC and iOS versions, and the Android edition will finally be joining that line-up on 24th March. Cross-play is supported between all three versions, and purchases and progress are accessible regardless of device.
Those eager to stake their claim on an Android download can pre-register via Google Play right now, which will net them a unique Imperial Golem avatar come launch day on 24th March.
