Gwent: The Witcher Card Game Draft Mode Update Adds A New Card And Brings Balancing Changes

Gwent CD Projekt

Cyberpunk 2077 may be less than a month away, assuming that there are no more delays, however, that won’t stop CD Projekt Red from supporting its older games. The free-to-play card game Gwent: The Witcher Card Game just received a small update. The Draft Update 7.4.1 may be small, but it made some important changes to the game.

A new card has been added, which is for a sorcerer called Alzur. He is part of the Core Cards, which means choosing him will increase your chances of getting special packages. Mage packages are now part of the Tribal package. Three new Witcher Trio Wombo Combo packages have also been added, namely, Vesemir, Lambert and Eskel. There are tons of balancing changes that have been made to several of the other cards as well. Be sure to read about them before playing another match. The patch notes are mentioned below and on the official site.
