Witcher 3 physical card fighting game Gwent only on Xbox One

Much to the disappointment of a bunch of CD Projekt RED fans, the physical playing cards for Gwent (an in-game card fighting game on all platforms) will only be included with the Xbox One Collector’s Edition.

However, it went beyond disappointments and to anger, as some fans shed light over CDPR statement from way back “we will never make any exclusive in-game content”, so some argue that CDPR has broken that promise with this announcement of physical Gwent cards Only on Xbox One. Some say they did not, as physcial cards aren’t in-game content – which is what CDPR also states in their press release as response to the criticism. You a Playstation or PC player? You better find some Xbox One owner that likes the series and try and buy those cards from them! Here’s what Marcin Iwiñski from CDPR told Eurogamer;

Don’t get me wrong, I do understand that these extra items might be desirable for Witcher fans playing the game on other platforms. However, as we are not offering any platform or retail exclusive DLCs or any other form of gameplay differentiation, we do have to find other ways to support our partners … What is the reason? Why are we doing this? We need the support of partners to make our game visible worldwide.

If you’re a fan of Hearthstone, Blizzard’s growing card fighting game, you will most likely love playing Gwent in your travels aqround Nothern Kingdom. Here’s what CDPR has to say about it;

Gwent is a fast-paced card game that can be played within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on every platform. Invented by dwarves and perfected over centuries of tavern table play, Gwent is a game of initial simplicity and ultimate depth … The game is about the clash of two armies locked in mortal struggle on a battlefield where the players are the leaders and the cards their forces. With four different factions offering unique combat styles and endless paths to victory, Gwent is every adventurer’s first choice when it comes to one-on-one card-based dueling!

The in-game card game will feature 150 cards, four factions and a bunch of different playing styles.
