Gwent The Witcher Card Game launch

CD Projekt RED’s CCG, called Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, has been in beta for quite a while as the developer took fan feedback to improve the game. Well, after all that time the game has finally exited its beta phase and is available to download and play entirely free right now on PC.

The game’s release is accompanied by a massive update called Homecoming, which improves the game’s visuals, adds over 30 new cards, and more progression paths. The game’s mechanics have also been tweaked, resulting in an experience that is much more polished than it initially was.

The developer will be kicking off the game’s launch with a Launch Celebration Pack, which includes 120 cards, one legendary card, 5 tickets for Arena Mode and 500 Meteorite Powder. This pack can be purchased up to 5 times per account.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is available now through GOG. Console gamers won’t have to wait too much longer for their turn, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions set to launch on December 4th. You can check out the official trailer for the game below.

In related Witcher news, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales launched recently on PC, which is an RPG featuring Gwent. Owning the game unlocks 20 cards for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, which is a nice bonus for fans.

After about a month of work, a couple of Google employees have successfully hacked the PS Portal, PlayStation’s handheld streaming solution. Their project is not set for public release anytime soon, but the hack is purely software-based, eliminating the need for hardware exploitation.

Andy Nguyen, a cloud vulnerability researcher, and Calle Svensson, a security engineer, shared their latest project on Twitter. They successfully ran the PSP emulator PPSSPP on the PS Portal. They presented the 2005 PSP classic Grand Theft Auto: Liberty Stories.

As a wireless streaming device, the idea of playing games on the PS Portal without a PS5 providing the power was considered impossible. It’s quite surprising how quickly Nguyen and Svensson have overcome this initial hurdle. It remains to be seen where their efforts will take them, but we will definitely keep an eye on their progress. Nguyen expressed that there is still a lot of work left to do.

Lady Gaga, also known as Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta, has teased an upcoming collaboration with Fortnite Festival set to be unveiled soon. More pertinent to our specific attention to detail, Gaga has also admitted to a mistake made around four years ago, indicating her keen awareness of the franchise’s significant value.

Gaga shared a mesmerizing picture of her character in Fortnite and also retweeted a post from 2019 where she asked her fans, “What’s fortnight?”. She finally got the chance to correctly spell the title of the game, allowing us to breathe a sigh of relief after waiting anxiously.

Lady Gaga will be teaming up with other top celebrities to maximize their presence on the Fortnite platform. Travis Scott once hosted a live concert in Battle Royale a couple of years ago, while the Weeknd just premiered the music video for the song “Popular” at the Fortnite Festival.

For those who may not recall, nearly eight years ago today, Street Fighter 5 was released in 2016 in a rather incomplete state. The content available was impressive initially, but the limited number of characters and lack of single-player game modes stood out. Capcom expresses regret for the entire situation, offering apologies years later for having “betrayed” players’ expectations.

On SF5’s eighth anniversary, the developers must be feeling nostalgic. They recently posted a Japanese-language tweet looking back on the mistakes made and the challenges that were eventually overcome. The number of playable characters has grown to 45, and the game has seen various enhancements, including the introduction of new abilities such as V Skills/Trigger II and V Shift. Even now, hundreds of thousands of players still choose to play this game instead of the newer Street Fighter 6.
Have you had the chance to try out Street Fighter 5 since it was first released? What do you recall about the game’s reception? Take a trip down memory lane in the comments section below.
