Patch and Premium Keg Weekend are now live

New patch for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is now available on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

With this patch we’ve focused on fixing major issues in the game, as well as removing spies that grant card advantage from Create.

We’ve also launched a Premium Keg Weekend – until Monday (January 15th, 10 AM CET), all 5th cards in the opened kegs will be Premium. You will have a choice between 3 Premium Cards to add to your Collection as a 5th card, meaning that you are guaranteed to get at least one Premium card in every keg you open during the event. All end of the season rewards have been now distributed, so happy opening!

Full list of changes:

  • Spies that grant card advantage (i.e. Cantarella, Udalryk, Yaevinn, Thaler and Frightener) are no longer present in Create cards’ option pools.

Thanks. Could fix few other words missed in last patch.

Dwarven Agitator for example cant Summon itself but reading a card it could spawn itself. Missing word 'other' ... bronze dwarf.

Few others too, already sent mail prior to patch with few other missing words from description

What about the kegs we've lost thanks to an "unknown error"?

Just quit and enter in the game and you should see your missing cards(if you opened and then the error poped up) or if error poped up without opening the keg you should make a ticket

The 5th card being premium from every keg is insane! Are you guys serious about this? Getting premium cards in this game is way too easy as it is thanks to meteroite powder being easily purchasable and now with this premium weekend... at some point premium cards won't be so coveted after anymore - everyone will have them!

By the way, I'm obviously not complaining about this! I'll take it as a reward for being active and catching it before the event gets over!

"Fixed Thaler's tooltip in Brazilian Portuguese." - damn it! Best fix game needed in current state! I'm so getting rank 21 with this update. Kappa.

Have the consoles been optimized? I had to turn off premium cards because it slowed my Xbox down to unbearable levels.

Sigh... got the rewards before the patch was active and therefore opened the Kegs before this. Would have been better to just hand out the rewards once your patch is active.^^

Magnificent event this Premium Weekend.

Well done, it's the moves like this why CDPR is so beloved.

Too bad I spent all my luck with Golds when I opened kegs after patch

I take my complaint back. I just didn't really pay attention and didn't notice that they were all Premium when I opened them. When I read that this Premium bonus started with the patch I just assumed it wasn't active before. So everything is alright.

Why eveyone will ban Broover and play other decks.

I wish I can ban Broover....

Maybe not as you know what to expect

Is there an update to change current curses in the near future? I want to buy cards for scraps but I am afraid that the functionality of the cards I buy will be overwhelmed and the cards will be useless as I have already done.
Thank you for the info.
