Quote from CD Projekt Red
The Blood Moon is rising. This is a time of the Crimson Curse, a time of madness and despair. A dark ritual performed by a mighty higher vampire Dettlaff turns the moon blood red, corrupting the land and its inhabitants. No one is safe and there’s nowhere to run — new breeds of monsters are awaking from their slumber, thirsting for blood. Will you join Dettlaff in his quest for revenge and destruction or choose to fight back and protect the innocents?
REINFORCEMENTS HAVE ARRIVED
Crimson Curse is the first card expansion to GWENT: The Witcher Card Game — it brings over 100 new cards, including 31 neutral cards and 14 faction cards for each faction. Whichever your favourite faction is, you will have plenty of options either to improve existing meta decks or experiment with completely new archetypes from Crimson Curse.
MORE WAYS TO PLAY
No one is safe from the Crimson Curse, so all factions have to adapt to this new deadly threat. Dryads of Brokilon, Cintrian mages, Toussaint knights, Svalblod cultists and vampires are all joining the fight that will shape the future of The Witcher world. Let’s take a look at some of the new cards!
Windhalm of Attre
Fortify your allies with Shield to block the first instance of damage allowing key characters to shine like never before.
Inflict deadly Poison to your foes. Though small quantities can be tolerated, a second dose would surely destroy your foe.
Though not for everyone, some seek to bring Harmony to the world and get boosted by one the first time a new Scoia'tael race joins the battlefield.
Why destroy your enemies, when you can slowly Bleed them over time, causing them to lose power every turn.
Some monsters coordinate together, Bonding in battle to create greater effects, such as deeper wounds that bleed longer.
When damaging a warrior of skellige, be careful. Some will go Berserk when reaching half health.
There is no such problem that a good ol’ explosion can’t solve — expect a lot of new cards with powerful Deathblow abilities triggered when its target dies.
These are the first 5 cards from Crimson Curse officially revealed, but there will be many more! Make sure to visit Crimson Curse webpage often for the new reveals added to the card gallery.
The expansion will be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on March 28th. Mark your calendars!
