Even though CD Projekt RED is focused on patching the bugs in its latest Cyberpunk 2077 release, this doesn’t mean that the game publisher has forgotten about its other games. The reason why we are saying that is because CD Projekt RED has published a brand-new update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game on Android. With that said, today we will check out all the new features and improvements that the update brings.
GWENT: The Witcher Card Game 8.1 Update
The new update for GWENT: The Witcher Card Game sports the 8.1 version number and according to the patch notes, it’s available to download directly via OTA (over the air) channels. Therefore, we are advising all fans of the mobile card game to keep their smartphones connected to Wi-Fi so that they can be among the first ones to access the update and the new features that it brings.
