CD PROJEKT RED has announced an all-new Draft game mode for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, along with the start of the third season of Journey
Now available in early access for anyone wishing to give it a go, Draft Mode brings a fresh new approach to deck building and gameplay to GWENT. Players now choose from three sets of three cards to fill out their decks — each deck also having to feature a leader’s ability, core legendary card, and Stratagem picked separately — resulting in a more dynamic deck building experience.
Each set of cards offers a variety of powerful synergies to take advantage of in battle against other players in Draft Mode, making it even easier to build strong decks quickly with cards for across GWENT’s entire library. The game ends once a player wins seven matches or decides to build a different deck.
CD PROJEKT RED also revealed an all-new season of Journey — GWENT’s progression system — which has begun. Rewarding players as they level up by earning victories in the game’s Standard, Seasonal, and Draft Mode matches, Journey’s third season features over 100 levels with unique ornaments, among others rewards, and is themed around Alzur — a renegade sorcerer believed to be the creator of witchers. New chapters of Alzur’s story and a selection of related quests will be published weekly over the course of Journey’s three-month duration.
As always, the base tier of Journey is free for all players. An optional Premium Pass is also available, granting players instant access to Alzur’s customizable legendary leader skin and even more vanities to unlock. Details regarding the Premium Pass are available on the dedicated Journey website.
