Aside from the gorgeous environments and seemingly endless gameplay, one of the more standout features of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has to be the addictive card game, Gwent. And now, it looks like we’ll be getting a version of the game we can actually play ourselves without having to load up The Witcher 3.
According to a new trademark filed by CD Projekt RED over at the European Union Intellectual Property Office suggests the company could be set to release a standalone version of the Gwent card game.
Though the trademark doesn’t actually state that the trademark is for a standalone version of the game, one of the classification listings within the trademark does relate to computer software, so this could be a standalone release.
While this may have many people excited, there are some concerns however due to comments CDPR have previously made about a standalone release. The idea is that players become super over powered by the end of the game once all of the cards have been collected, and unless two players had the exact same decks, it was difficult to make it a competitive game.
Though chances are, a standalone release would allow CDPR to further expand the game from the limitations of being a mini-game within a game. It could launch with a number of new cards, new decks, and new factions for players to tackle.
With E3 2016 just around the corner, we’ll just have to wait and see.
