Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is starting its closed beta for Android tomorrow, March 10. This should be good news for Android users who have long wanted to try out the game. The closed beta is going to be on a first-come, first-served basis and those with Google Play or accounts can sign in to the test for free.

Gwent is a turn-based card game that lets two players fight each other in fast-paced duels using a deck of at least twenty-five cards. While deck construction is important, coming up with a good strategy on the spot can be helpful as well.

Each deck that a player has focuses on a faction. There are a total of six to choose from. There are Monsters, who are driven mainly by their instincts and even consume their own just to gain power. The Scoia'tael is the best when it comes to ambushes and traps. Nilfgaard, on the other hand, uses both diplomacy and subterfuge. The other factions are the Skellige and their warriors, the Northern Realms, which boasts of having engines of war, and finally the Syndicate, which is willing to do anything for the coin.

With each faction offering different play styles, this is sure to result in some interesting matches.

Developed by CD Projekt Red, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is a game that is free to play with no strings attached. If the title seems familiar, the reason is that it's based on the card game in The Witcher novels and the one in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt video game.

Gwent was first released to the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2018. It then received a release for iOS back in October 2019. You can read more about the iOS launch here.

For the upcoming closed beta, those lucky enough to participate get to experience all the modes and features of the full release of the game. In addition, any progress made during the beta is going to be carried over to the full Android release. Progress made during the beta is also going to be carried over to the PC and iOS versions that are linked to the same account as well. However, this appears to be limited to those who have a account and used it to sign in for the beta.

The Android version is set to officially launch on March 24.
