Witcher 3 Gwent Combat Mod Unleashes Yami Geralt
Remember Yu-Gi-Oh? That anime about fighting people with magical Egyptian artifacts and card games that we all watched on SABC 2? Of course you do, and you probably have a card from the trading card game hidden somewhere in your house. Well, thanks to a modder, The Witcher 3 becomes the least silly Yu-Gi-Oh spin-off.

Hearts of Card is a Witcher 3 mod that replaces all the the combat encounters with the popular in-game card game Gwent.
The combat in The Witcher 3 is in no way bad, on the contrary it’s actually pretty great. It’s just that Gwent is another amazing aspect of the game that did steal many players attention.
Gwent came across as a pleasant surprise to players. I don’t think anyone expected the incredible RPG to also include a mini-game that could rival the quality of some popular competitive game. While there are players who probably ignored Gwent entirely, the mini-game definitely saw a lot of popularity with a lot of players ignoring their questing duties in order to craft better Gwent decks.
I mean, the retail edition of the game’s expansion came with two Gwent decks so that it could be played outside of the game so I guess that makes it a pretty big deal.
Having not actually played The Witcher 3 yet, I finally have a pretty good reason to jump right in to it. I like the idea of an epic adventure revolving around a card game without having to play that game at school or on a motorcycle.
