Now Playing: Gwent: The Witcher Card Game - Cinematic Trailer

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

Did you play the closed beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game? If so, CD Projekt Red has a special gift for you. Everyone who took part in the closed beta is getting a free copy of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings.

To claim your free copy of the 2011 role-playing game, all of you need to do is log into with the same account you used for the beta, and then follow the instructions (via Game Informer). You must claim your free copy before 8 AM ET on May 29, so the offer is not available for very long.

In other Gwent news, the game is now available to everyone in a public beta, which CD Projekt Red CEO Marcin Iwinski called an "important step" towards final launch in a news release.

"I'm extra curious how all of the community feedback we've incorporated will resonate with both current players and those who're just starting," he added. "Please keep the feedback coming, we're listening!"

Witcher 2 is a damn masterpiece. Better than Witcher 3.

It was free on GWG not so long ago... so thanks I guess?

But seriously, does anyone NOT already have Witcher 2 by now? It's been free on at least 5 different occasions on PC and Xbox.

Regardless, the Gwent standalone game is worth a few hours of your time (assuming you enjoyed it in W3).

@Pyrosa: TW2 was free only once on GOG.

Seems like the people who are most likely to have tried Gwent would've already been Witcher fans. Doesn't seem like that good of a perk.

I had no idea what Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is before I read this article and after reading, I still don't.

@gamingdevil800: And that tells me what about the game? That cards will be used. It doesn't mention if it's a hierarchical system, trick-point, collection, first-out, tactical, TCG, ect.

@gigaloser: Then try it. It's free.

@gigaloser: In simplest terms, it's like Magic. So tactical.
