Today CD Projekt RED has chosen Kuźnia Gier Publishing House to create two card games that will accompany the premiere of The Witcher PC RPG. The first card game will be created for promotional purposes, the second one will be released for a retail. Both games will precede the premiere of The Witcher PC RPG. Card games will be published in Poland, although CD Projekt does not exclude a release also in other countries.

The game requires two decks, and concentrates on challenge between two players. During the gameplay players will wander across the world of The Witcher and defeat numerous beasts. Game features adventure and strategic elements combining a typical computer game character development with a tactical approach known from the board games. The decks will include 55 and 110 cards respectively, and both games will vary in general rules, challenge time and gameplay. Both card games rules are being designed under the supervision of CD Projekt RED.

We are very proud that Kuźnia Gier has been assigned to design the card games based on The Witcher computer game. It is also a great pleasure, because we are all die hard fans of Andrzej Sapkowski's novels said Michal Stachyra, joint proprietor of Kuźnia Gier Publishing House.
