Gwent: Rogue Mage was previously known as Project Golden Nekker which will now be branded as a Gwent Expansion. The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red has officially released the game for Android, iOS, and PC platforms today, the game will be sold separately from the multiplayer game.
Introducing Rogue Mage, the Witcher prequel card game
Rogue Mage will be branded as a single expansion of Gwent, but it will still retain the core mechanics of the card game to keep users immersed in the experience. Rogue Mage is set in a roguelike format in which the users will use the iconic Witcher world characters like Yennefer, Zoltan, and Dandelion, and players will use cards from the multiplayer version of Gwent.
Although the interconnection seems to make everything complicated, the cards in Rogue Mage are presented in Simpler packages that are not as confusing as the multiplayer version of Gwent when playing for the first time.
To make things more simple and less confusing, players will begin with 12 cards in their deck to make players understand the main theme easily. There are four decks in total and players have the freedom to choose between three cards to build around in each deck. Players can add more cards over time. Over the course of the game, players earn experience and level up which increases the pool of cards available for them.
Rogue Mage features a very simple and shortly depicted kind of storyline, unlike previous Witcher games. Rogue Mage features Alzur and depicts his motivation and attempt to create the first witcher.
Gwent: Rogue Mage will arrive as a premium title
CD Projekt Red has released the game as a separate package apart from the multiplayer version of the game, the Standard version will be available for $9.99 and the Premium version will be available for $19.99 which contains exclusive skins, cosmetics, and card packs. The game will be officially available for Android, iOS, and PC users from today. Once the game arrives on the App Stores we’ll update the article with store links.
