New patch for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

With this patch we’ve focused on fixing major issues in the game, as well as removing spies that grant card advantage from Create.

The fourth Ranked Play season is live! From now on, each season will last for 1 month, and all players will start with ½ of their ranking points from the previous season. Adjusted seasonal rewards due to season length changes.

We’ve also launched a Premium Keg Weekend – until Monday (January 15th, 10 AM CET), all 5th cards in the opened kegs will be Premium. You will have a choice between 3 Premium Cards to add to your Collection as a 5th card, meaning that you are guaranteed to get at least one Premium card in every keg you open during the event. All end of the season rewards have been now distributed, so happy opening!

Full list of changes:


  • Spies that grant card advantage (i.e. Cantarella, Udalryk, Yaevinn, Thaler and Frightener) are no longer present in Create cards' option pools.
  • Vreemde became a Leader (previously Silver). (Confirmed as a bug).
  • Shilard will no longer draw a card if one deck is empty.
  • Eist: Removed Clan Veteran from Eist's Spawn pool.
  • Milva: Won't boost returned ally anymore.
