Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is a free-to-play card game that puts you, not your cards, in the center of the action.

In Gwent, gamers clash with their friends in fast-paced duels that combine bluffing, on-the-fly decision making and careful deck construction.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is played over a best-of-three series of rounds, as players unleash their hand by slinging spells and diverse units with special abilities and use clever tricks to deceive their opponents.

The season’s grand finale tournament played out over the course of Saturday and Sunday, December 4th-5th.

Streamed live on Twitch in its entirety, it saw 8 of the best Gwent players from around the world competing in high-stakes battles for a share of the $71,000 prize pool and the title of Gwent World Champion.

CD Projekt Red announces that Alexander “TLG_Cyberz” Schmidt has claimed the ultimate victory in the Season 3 Gwent World Masters tournament this past weekend, earning the title of Gwent World Champion in the official Witcher Card Game esports series.

The final tournament prize pool distribution and standings are as follows:

  • Damian “TailBot” Kaźmierczak (Poland) — $1,775
  • Elias “theshaggynuts” Sagmeister (Austria) — $1,775

During the event, before the final match, CD Projekt Red also revealed that a new content update for Gwent is coming Tuesday, December 7th. The update will add 12 new cards (2 per each faction), while also introducing a number of regular balance changes. The video overview for the update is available on Twitch, via the Gwent World Masters tournament recording, as well as on Gwent’s official YouTube channel.
