Gwent: The Witcher Card Game Patch Stops Cheaters

By Lucy Wood, 1 year ago
The latest update for free-to-play Witcher spin-off Gwent: The Witcher Card Game stops cheaters from triggering auto-wins and resolves some game desynchronisation issues.

Update 0.8.37 is a small patch that addresses several issues, most importantly an exploit that allowed players to get an auto-win upon casting the Mardroeme card without selecting a target. This had a detrimental impact on ranked play, to which developer CD Projekt Red has responded by banning players who abused the exploit. The patch also resolves problems with server errors and game desynchronisation caused by killing Morkvarg on 2 Strength and playing 3 Redanian Elites and Reinforced Ballistas.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game has been in closed beta on Xbox One and PC for over two months and this is expected to continue until sometime in spring. New users are being included in waves, so you may still be able to score an invite by registering here. CD Projekt Red is committed to using this lengthy beta period to fully polish the game prior to confirming a release date:

We’ll come out of Beta when we have a game we think is honest, fun and well balanced.
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will receive a full release on Xbox One and Windows 10 after the beta ends.
