GWENT, the card game sourced from the universe of The Witcher, has released the Gold Immunity update according to an announcement on GOG.com. Additionally, a new starter pack has been made available for purchase for players both old and new.
Starting things off, a list of 21 cards will have increased milling value for the first 3 days after the release of the patch. The cards, when milled, will provide scraps and meteorite powder equal to the amount needed to craft a card of the same value. Milling aside, the update is also adding 30 new cards to the game.
New social features, a player profile, a news feed, and a notification system have been added to the game. The social elements are complemented by the addition of competitive elements: Pro Ladder functionality has been added into the game and opens up to the player base on September 1, 2017. A number of other small balance changes and gameplay enhancements have been implemented as well; you can read them all in the full changelog for the update here.
Alongside the changes and fixes to GWENT, a brand new Starter Pack is now available for $4.99 [Affiliate Link] or your regional equivalent. The GWENT Starter Pack is a one-time purchase available for players both new and old. You'll be able to pick one of three random Legendary Cards, receive 10 Card Kegs (with 5 cards apiece, for a total of 51 cards), and 400 Meteorite Powder which will allow you to transmute cards into their animated and voiced premium versions.
