A new expansion set is coming to Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. Price of Power will introduce the story of different factions seeking out, fighting for, and even exploiting magic.

The expansion offers three related stories with the first one called Once Upon A Pyre, which arrives June 8 on all supported platforms. It brings to the game four cards of various rarities per factions and two neutrals, resulting in 26 new cards. Players can also expect to see new abilities and new gameplay mechanics.

Speaking of cards, so far two have been revealed which are:

  • The Witchfinder
    • Legendary
    • Human, Witch Hunter
    • Deploy: Spawn 3 Syndicate Crowns.
    • At the end of your turn, if no enemy unit has a Bounty, place a Bounty on the highest-power enemy unit.
  • Vigilantes
    • Common
    • Human, Witch Hunter
    • Whenever a Bounty is placed on an enemy unit, damage it by 2.

The second expansion will arrive in August 2021 while the third coming out in October 2021. Read more about the expansion set here.

The Price of Power is available through the EP7 Expansion Pass priced at $59.99. Overall, players can get a 117 premium Price of Power card, which comes with 78 unique cards. There are also 21 Themed Ornaments and an animated Pyre Coin as a bonus item.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is a digital collectible card game initially made available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It was later released on Android and macOS. The game is based on the card game of the same name from the video game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Unlike other games in the same genre, the game boasts of a progression system where building a collection of cards is more of a pleasure instead of pressure. All players need to do is collect new cards and then build decks. While in other games there’s a high element of luck, Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is more focused on skill. Players can beat opponents using clever tricks to outsmart them or just go for brute strength.

You can get the game through Steam here.
