It’s been a bit since we’ve last heard from The Witcher III: The Wild Hunt spinoff Gwent, as the game is still in beta testing for those with a code. But developer CD Projekt Red is bringing their virtual card game to PAX East. They’ll be hosting a Gwent Panel at the con to talk about making the animated cards and giving out some behind-the-scenes info.
CD PROJEKT RED, creators of The Witcher series of games, invite everyone to PAX East 2017, where the studio, among other GWENT related attractions, will be giving a behind the scenes look at creating The Witcher Card Game’s animated cards.
From the press release, the panel will focus on “discussing the creative process of bringing a piece of card art to life, how each new card is a new challenge, and how the art team works to overcome said challenges will be CD PROJEKT RED’s Kasia Redesiuk (Art Director) and Brad Auty (Senior Animator). The event will be hosted by Geek Bomb’s Maude Garrett.
The panel will be held on Saturday, March 11th at 1:00PM – 2:00PM EST in the Dragonfly Theatre of the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.”
The entire panel will be streamed live on Twitch for those at home. The specific link for the Dragonfly Theatre channel is here. You can sign up for the Gwent beta here. And if you want to know what I thought of the beta, my coverage of that is here. If you don’t want to read all that though, I found it stupidly fun and definitely recommend checking out the beta for yourselves.
