Latest Patch For 'The Witcher 3' Makes It Easier To Track Down All Those Missing Gwent Cards
The Witcher 3's last expansion is arriving on May 31, and developer CD Projekt Red is looking to make the game as perfect as it can be in the lead-up to Geralt's final adventure.
Among the long list of fixes and improvements comes one major change for those who can't get enough of The Witcher 3's Gwent card game. Tracking down missing cards from your collection was a major challenge for more than a few players attempting to collect em' all, but a new Gwent collection book added via the update will make the entire ordeal much easier. The book, titled "A Miraculous Guide to Gwent," displays yet-to-be-collected Gwent cards and even tells players where to find them. Players can snag the book by playing the Gwent scholar in the game's prologue or by visiting a merchant near St. Gregory's Bridge in Novigrad.
A number of inventory improvements are also being patched in. Items will now group into various subcategories within a player's inventory, making one of the game's most criticized aspects a little more manageable. Item comparisons are also getting a facelift, making it easier than ever before to compare pieces of equipment at a glance.
The update will be making repairing gear simpler, with merchant shops now having a "repair all equipped items" feature. Players will now be able to purchase missing crafting components directly from the crafting screen while talking to a merchant as well. Books can now be read upon first being acquired without having to navigate to the inventory, and once a book is read, it can be dropped or sold as its contents will have been added to the in-game glossary.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. While the above are the majority of the patch's major changes, a number of graphical improvements and bug fixes are also coming alongside the update. You can read the entire patch notes here. There's no exact release date for the update just yet, but expect it to arrive before or with the game's Blood and Wine expansion on May 31.
