If you were the type of Witcher 3: Wild Hunt player who spent more time playing cards in a tavern than exploring the world and hacking bandits into tiny pieces, then we've got good news for you. CD Projekt Red announced at E3 today that the Gwent collectible card game from Witcher 3 would be be getting its own standalone game, with beta coming in just a few months.

In Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, you'll be placed in control of an army from one of four factions and will need to tactically arrange your units in three lines of battle: melee, ranged, and siege. You'll start with only 10 cards in your hand and will have limited opportunities to draw more, so making careful use of your resources is key.

In addition to casual and competitive PvP, Gwent will include a single-player campaign that will let players "roam freely" and "will feature the choice and consequence mechanic the Witcher games are known for." No knowledge of the Witcher universe is required to play, though given the parent game's mature content, there is a requirement that players be at least 12 years old, and players under 18 "should have your parent or guardian agree to the User Agreement in your name." I'm sure everyone will abide by that mandate.

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will be free-to-play on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The beta starts on September, and you can sign up -- or learn more about the game -- on the Gwent website.
