Last week, CD PROJEKT RED announced and released on the same day a single-player, standalone expansion for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game – GWENT: Rogue Mage. Unfortunately, we did not write about the release of the game in time, so we will tell you about the first impressions of the project.
First of all, GWENT: Rogue Mage is not something like Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, which is almost a full card RPG with an original story and characters. Rogue Mage is a “rogue” based on the main GWENT. That is, you have to go through the same duels many times, killing the same enemies. Until you finally succeed.
Secondly, the plot of the game, which tells about the events long before the appearance of Geralt of Rivia and other main characters of the series, is rather rudimentary than full-fledged.
And thirdly, the GWENT rules in GWENT: Rogue Mage have changed significantly, now it’s more of a GWENT-themed solitaire than a full game with the possibility of bluffing and other tricks.
We will definitely do a full review of GWENT: Rogue Mage, but for now, we suggest watching the trailer.
