CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, announce Novigrad, the second expansion to GWENT: The Witcher Card Game.

Themed around the criminal underbelly of Novigrad — one of the major locations gamers had the opportunity to explore in The Witcher 3: Wild HuntGWENT’s next expansion adds a new faction known as The Syndicate. The faction comes with over 90 cards and 5 new leaders, featuring some of the most wanted scoundrels, freebooters and cutthroats the free city has ever seen. The expansion also adds 15 cross-faction cards, which can be used both in Syndicate decks, as well as ones from across other GWENT factions.

 

The expansion also introduces a set of new abilities and mechanics that let players wage war in devious new ways. Using Crowns, a new battle resource, players can have units with the Fee ability perform vile acts against the opponent. Placing a Bounty on an enemy and eliminating the target will replenish a leader’s Crown reserves. Crime, a new special card category, allows players to gain the upper hand in battle and boost allied units with the Intimidate keyword. And that’s just scratching the surface of what Novigrad brings to GWENT’s battlefields.

Prior to the expansion’s release, players can take advantage of a special Novigrad pre-order offer. Two separate packs are available to choose from, both featuring kegs with expansion-only cards, as well as a unique animated cardback.
