Nilfgaard Faction coming to GWENT

GWENT’s Nilfgaard faction update will introduce new styles of play


CD PROJEKT RED has announced that their upcoming update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game will be bringing with it a whole new faction for players to utilize – Nilfgaard.

The Nilfgaard faction will introduce a new playstyle previously not featured within GWENT. Rather than using brute force, the Nilfgaard faction focuses on maintaining total control over the battlefield. Players using these cards will be able to use special abilities to see their opponent’s hand, and control even player deck order. This faction also uses underhanded tricks based on the use of disloyal units.

The Nilfgaard faction update will bring with it over 60 new cards for players to use. Some of the new additions will include faction-specific cards for Northern Realms, Scoia’tael, Skellige, and Monsters. Neutral cards, which can be used by any faction, will also be included.

The update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game will go live on February 9. The game is currently in Closed Beta, but is still accepting applications. Those wishing to join in on the fun can register on the game’s official website.

Starting out with nothing more than a Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land, Kenny has happily been gaming for almost his entire life. Easily-excitable and a bit on the chatty side, Kenny has always been eager to share gaming-related thoughts, opinions, and news with others and has been doing so on Hey Poor Player since 2014 and has previously worked with both PKMNcast and SCATcast. Although his taste in gaming spreads across a wide number of companies and consoles, Kenny holds a particular fondness for Nintendo handheld consoles. He is also very proud of his amiibo collection. You can also find him on Twitter @SuperBayleef talking about video games and general nonsense. Some of his favorite games include Tetris Attack, Pokémon Black Version 2, The World Ends With You, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, Yo-kai Watch, Donkey Kong Country 2, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, Kirby's Dreamland 3, Mega Man X, and Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (among many others).
