The upcoming free to play the collectible card game, "Gwent: The Witcher Card Game," which is based on the mini-game within "The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt," has been on its closed beta stage for a few months now. The game's developers CD Projekt RED are of course very busy in trying to make sure that the game is balanced and free of any issues and glitches.

As with any game that is in beta, there have been some issues that were found, including some glitches and cheats that beta players were able to spot. Among the glitches was an auto-win issue that was automatically triggered when a player casts a Mardreome card during the battle. There have also been some de-synchronization issues that were spotted which were caused by either killing a Morkvarg on 2 strength or by playing 3 Reinforced Ballistas and Redanian Elites.

Now, CD Projekt RED has released a new update for the beta version of the game, Update 0.8.37, that seems to address these issues and several other minor bugs. Beta players are still busy trying out different configurations of the game, and it wouldn't be a surprise if more bugs and glitches are going to be detected down the road. CD Projekt RED previously mentioned that they will still continue with the beta testing and will only come out of it once they have made sure that the game is well balanced and free of any exploits or bugs.

Given the situation, CD Projekt RED has yet to announce a fixed released date for "Gwent: The Witcher Card Game," but it is expected to be released once the developers decide to end the beta. Those who are interested in participating in the beta can still do so by visiting the game's website.

The spin-off card game is planned to be made available on the Xbox One and Windows. The game will also feature a cross-platform play between the two systems. "Gwent: The Witcher Card Game" was originally announced back in June 2016, at Microsoft's E3 Xbox briefing.
