The Gwent Patch adding the missing Premium cards is now available! This update also features a ton of bugfixes, and as an unexpected surprise: New board designs! The game board will now be styled like you and your opponent's faction! Check out some examples below.
Additionally, for a limited time there is a warped ruleset active in the Arena where you switch decks with your opponent! Have fun drafting the worst deck possible ;) You can choose to play either the normal Arena mode or the special one.
