If you thought the Collector’s Edition for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was cool, the Xbox One version has extra goodies not included in the PC or PlayStation 4 version.


Included in the XO CE is a card game called Gwent, which is also playable in-game. It was invented by some industrious dwarves to be played in taverns across the world of The Witcher.

The strategy card game is brought to life in physical form with two decks spanning 150 cards. Two players can play one of four factions and dish out spell cards which will control the weather affect units.

Players can choose close range heavy knights, long range archers or artillery siege weapons. There are also hero cards unique to each faction.

Along with Gwent, a cloth map of the in-game world of The Witcher 3 will also be included. Other than these two additions, the rest of the Collector’s Edition contains the same contents as the PC and PS4 version.

The CE will run you $150 in the US and is apparently becoming scarce in the UK.

Witcher 3 is out in February for PC, PS4, Xbox One.
