Gwent Closed Beta to Open Beta Transition Information

Gwent Open Beta shouldn’t be too far away, so CDPR has released information on how that transition will take place on the official Gwent site. No official date for the Open Beta has been released.

We’ve been in Closed Beta for quite a while now, and we are preparing for the next stage — Open Beta. This is why we’d like to tell you a bit more about how we plan to transition into Open Beta, and what that means for your in-game progress. We’d also like to tell you more about what you’re going to receive for your participation.

Many things have changed since we launched the Closed Beta of GWENT — we’ve introduced dozens of balance tweaks, added new mechanics, new premium versions of cards, implemented a ranking mode, and more.

Since Open Beta will mark a significant influx of new players, we want everyone to start on equal ground. That’s why we need to reset everyone’s card collection (fear not — we’ll give you back all the Kegs you purchased with real money!) and game progress (player level, Ore and Scraps).

However, we also want to reward you for the time you invested in helping us make GWENT better. And this means you’ll get to smash open some shiny new Kegs. Chances are, a lot!

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • Every Card Keg you purchased — we will return you the amount of Kegs you bought with real money.
  • Card Kegs for Player Levels — starting from level 5, you get 2 Kegs every 5 levels.
  • Card Kegs for your rank — 2 Kegs for each rank.
  • All end-season rewards.
  • All items granted as gifts from CD PROJEKT RED (like the gift premium Geralt card).

All in all, after everything’s done, you should have enough Kegs to make new great decks! Once again thank you for playing GWENT and making it better. We really appreciate it.

    Why the drastic change in the game? Not as fun as it was before the update.

      Says who? Was your horribly OP favorite deck nerfed by any chance?

    thank goodness, i learnt my lesson deleting cards unless if its a duplicate is a bad idea, I wont make the same mistake in open beta.

      God yes when I started I wiped my whole Nilf deck, now I main them;; Bf is sad that he’s losing his cards, but honestly my draws haven’t been to good and I have a completely new idea of decks I want to build, wipe can’t come fast enough ;D

    Those are really some generous rewards, I didn’t expect that much. Right now I’ll get around 40 Kegs not counting the end of season rewards (because we still don’t know those). That’s really a nice head start in the Open Beta.

    I was pretty upset about the wipe before reading that, but now I’m actually pretty happy. 40 Kegs should be enough to make a pretty viable deck or two, which combined with the experience should make the early progress pretty fast.
