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

With this update we made over 40 units agile, and implemented game fixes and balance changes with emphasis on Northern Realms. Additionally, we are introducing the Mahakam Ale Festival for which you’ll be able to unlock a new avatar, border and title!

The following cards will have increased value for milling for 3 days following the release of the patch (more on this below):

  • Battering Ram
  • Blue Stripes Commando
  • Dijkstra
  • Dun Banner Heavy Cavalry
  • Mahakam Marauder
  • Merigold's Hailstorm
  • Nenneke
  • Prince Stennis
  • Restore
  • Shani

The cards on the list, when milled, will create an amount of scraps and powder equal to the amount of scraps and powder needed to craft a card of the same value."
