Gwent is a free-to-play card game found in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It gives you and your opponent a set of cards which simulate battles. You must use certain warriors at the right time to win. Recently, the title received the Midwinter Update which adds more than a hundred cards to the game, many of which have new abilities and gameplay mechanics sure to shake things up on the battlefield. The update also introduced the story-driven Midwinter Hunt. The Midwinter Hunt stars the famous Geralt of Rivia as he faces a new set of challenges.
Yesterday, the developer unveiled a new game mode called Gwent Arena which enables players to build decks with no restrictions on rarity or duplications. There is a new challenger in town, so you have to use everything at your disposal to defeat the infamous Man of Glass Gaunter O'Dimm.
Taking part in a Gwent Arena run costs 150 ore. Ore can be purchased with actual currency, so it comes out to only a few dollars. The run is quite challenging and ends if you die three times. Apart from that, you have to complete nine successful contracts to end it successfully. Each run guarantees some rewards but if you play more skillfully, you'll end up getting better cards.
Gwent Arena is still being testing so a lot of its aspects might change. It's unclear when the mode will be released to the public as a result of this. Fans have been asking for a Gwent Arena-like mode for months now, so it's great to see the developer listening to feedback. Hopefully it will be everything fans hoped for when it eventually comes out on Xbox One and PC.
