Gwent Mahakam Ale Festival Holiday Event makes cards Agile

CD Projekt Red’s Witcher card game spin-off, Gwent, has added the first holiday event to the game in a new update.

Among other things, 40 card units in the game have been made ‘agile’ which means they can be played on any row.

You’ll also earn XP for completing single player challenges, also earned retroactively if you’ve already done them. And you can change the card shown on your player profile.

The Mahakam Ale Festival Event unlocks a new avatar, border and title, and also increases the value for milling on various cards.

Check out the full list of changes here.
