Xbox One/PC Gwent Closed Beta Sign-ups Ending Soon
The last chance to get into the Gwent closed beta is coming soon.
A closed beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game has been running for a few months on Xbox One and PC, and today developer CD Projekt Red announced that sign-ups to get into the beta will be ending soon.
The beta will continue to run, but the developer said in a press release that this weekend is the last chance to gain access to it. CD Projekt Red stated that its reason for closing registration is to prepare for a larger, public beta test. More information about that test will come next week.
"Throughout Closed Beta, we've reworked and added a huge amount of features and mechanics to Gwent," development director Benjamin Lee said. "I'd like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the hours invested."
This weekend, CDPR is also holding the finals for the Gwent Challenger tournament. Winners of a community bracket will face off against professional gamers for a $100,000 prize pool. The studio will livestream the finals on May 13 on its Twitch channel.
Gwent is a standalone and enhanced version of the collectible card game that was playable within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. In addition to improved graphics and animation, it also includes more cards and an open-world map to explore.
