Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is getting a new expansion. Titled Gwent: Iron Judgement, the expansion will launch for PC and consoles in October.
Iron Judgement revolves around the return of King Radovid V, last seen in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. You’ll have to choose between allying with Radovid or standing against him to defy his royal authority. CD Projekt Red says the expansion will also contain some of “the greatest battles in all of Witcher lore”. It’ll introduce new cards, new mechanics, new keywords, and new abilities to the game. You can check out the trailer for Gwent: Iron Judgement below:
The Gwent: Iron Judgement trailer shows off some of the expansion’s new mechanics. The Armor system allows you to protect your units from damage. Many of the new cards in Iron Judgement will have armor values, which you’ll have to use the new Stunning Blow ability to destroy. You can now safeguard allied units with certain cards thanks to the Defender trait, which allows some cards to protect other cards on a given row. You can check out the official Gwent: Iron Judgement website for some more info.
Gwent: Iron Judgement will launch for the base Gwent: The Witcher Card Game as a free expansion. CD Projekt Red is also offering a Gwent: Iron Judgement pre-order pack. You can buy this via the game client on all platforms, and if you’re on PC you can buy it via the official website. The pre-order pack contains the following bonuses:
- 25 Premium Iron Judgement Kegs (grants 5 premium cards from the expansion, 4 of which are at least common rarity, 1 of which is at least rare)
- Pre-Order Exclusive Iron Judgement Animated Cardback
- Radovid: Protector of the North Leader Skin
You’ll be able to play Gwent: Iron Judgement on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and iOS on October 2nd. It’ll be a free content update for the base game across all platforms. In the meantime, you can check out what we thought of the original Gwent game.
