CD Projekt RED officially released the first expansion for GWENT, the Crimson Curse. The expansion adds five new leaders and at least 100 cards to the game. Crimson Curse also brings balance tweaks to the cards already available.

One major change was reworking the card shader so that it would have different lighting behavior during gameplay. In particular, this rework makes the card art even more vivid. Another change is that instead of the “shimmer” effect, premium cards now have a glittering border effect.
