With The Witcher video game trilogy officially coming to a close and with CD Projekt Red pretty much stating that there are no plans for a fourth The Witcher title, this leaves players with Gwent, a game based on a mini-game in The Witcher that was announced last year. For those interested in the game, the public beta has been announced for next week.

Prior to this, the closed beta was taking place and if you weren’t able to make the cut for the closed beta, not to worry as the public beta is another option. The public beta will be available to everyone on the PC, Xbox One, and PS4 starting from the 24th of May, so if you didn’t pre-order the game or if you’ve pre-ordered the game, it doesn’t matter.

According to Benjamin Lee, Development Director at CD Projekt Red, “Public Beta is the next step in the game’s development process, one that we’d be honored to continue alongside everyone who’s been with us thus far. It’s also a chance for many new gamers to play GWENT for the first time and we’re looking forward to making the game even better with their help.”

Following the end of the public beta, progress of gamers will be reset so you won’t be able to bring it forward into the final game. In the meantime fans of the franchise can also look forward to an upcoming TV series by Netflix that is also based around The Witcher, although this  TV series will be based more on the books that inspired the game rather than the game itself.
