The Witcher games have sold over 25M copies since the franchise started

CD Projekt RED has been persistently working away at The Witcher series, putting out highly acclaimed games - none more so than 2015's superlative and genre defining The Witcher 3, but still - steadily.

GWENT's retail release is slated to drop in the second half of 2017, so this could be among the last chances you have to give the game a try before it's official. The closed beta on PS4 runs from 1 p.m. ET on March 31 until 2 a.m. ET April 3. The game is played over a best-of-three series of rounds, as players unleash their hand by slinging spells and diverse units with special abilities and use clever tricks to deceive their opponents. To access the technical beta, players will only have to download the client from the PlayStation Store when it becomes available.

So popular was Gwent, in fact, that it eventually broke away from the main game, becoming its own standalone, free-to-play offering.

Your options will be slightly limited compared to the versions of Gwent available on Xbox One and PC. The polish developer has stated that they're holding this beta to exclusively to evaluate Playstation 4 server capacity.

And even though the company only has Gwent coming out this year, it's expected to be a big hit as well, attracting a community of millions of Witcher players with plenty of card-playing antics.

The technical beta will have in-game purchases and ranked matches disabled, and accounts will be deleted once the test ends.

Furthermore CD Projekt Red reported a total revenue of 584 Million PLN, and a net profit of 251 Million PLN. Also, if you somehow manage to miss the beta during the course of this weekend, then you will probably not get a shot at it again as there are no plans to extend it beyond the stipulated time.
