Five years may have passed since the release of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and it is clear that CD Projekt’s priority right now is Cyberpunk 2077; but even in this situation, the Polish studio finds a place not to abandon Geralt de Rivia and company. Today, the Gwent card spin-off debuts on Steam, and it does so with a few new cool features.
“The launch on Steam has cross-play functions and synchronization with other versions of the game, which means that you can compete with iOS, Android, and GOG players; in addition to transferring all the objects and progression between these platforms” reads the official website of the game. “In addition, the title also features the integration of Steam achievements and Steam trading cards.” In other words, most completists will be able to enrich their profiles with medals, gain experience, and unlock collectibles.
On the other hand, CD Projekt explains that a new update to Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales allows players to unlock items in Gwent by playing the former’s campaign. “These rewards include premium cards and cosmetic items, which will be automatically delivered upon the fulfillment of certain requirements. If you have already played The Witcher Tales on Steam, you can retroactively unlock the rewards only if you completed the tour in online mode (connected to the internet) “
As a reminder, we recently shared all the details of TW3’s fifth anniversary — one that runs through millions in sales and is celebrated with discounts on most games in The Witcher series for multiple platforms. Last year, CD Projekt reviewed its delicate relationship with writer Andrzej Sapkowski, whose novels The Witcher is based on, to strengthen control of IP in the interactive arena.
