Gwent is a tabletop card game that will be both incorporated into The Witcher 3 gameplay and available as a physical game, included in the collector's edition bundle.

Gwent is a fast-paced card game that can be played within The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on every platform. Invented by dwarves and perfected over centuries of tavern table play, Gwent is a game of initial simplicity and ultimate depth, something beloved by both road-weary travelers during long nights around the campfire and elegant nobles looking to liven up dragging dinner parties. The game is about the clash of two armies locked in mortal struggle on a battlefield where the players are the leaders and the cards their forces. With four different factions offering unique combat styles and endless paths to victory, Gwent is every adventurer's first choice when it comes to one-on-one card-based dueling. Take risks and think on your feet, strategize and deliver cunning combos, use potent magic and mighty hero cards and be the last one standing on the field of honor!

On the latest episode of Conan O'Brien's "Clueless Gamer," Conan discovers what may be the best new feature of The Witcher 3.  Apparently getting it on in hidden ponds and the lair of a succubus was not enough; The Witcher 3 has upped the ante, letting you have sex ATOP A UNICORN.  Mind you, it's not a live unicorn, but who cares?!  It's a unicorn! It's magical!

If you want to get straight to the action, head to around 9:20 in the video.

In an open letter on the Witcher website, co-founder and Joint CEO of CD PROJEKT RED Marcin Iwiński lays it all out (TL;DR? Paid DLC sucks, have some free DLC):

We love games. We love collecting them, playing them, and everything connected to that experience. Every time we reach out for a new release, we expect to be taken care of. We expect support if we encounter any problems, we love updates constantly improving the experience, and we feel really special when we receive free content that gives us more than we initially paid for. It doesn't have to be huge, it can be an awesome skin for a character, or an extra sword, or armor.

Unfortunately this treatment is quite rare these days. As gamers, we nowadays have to hold on tight to our wallets, as surprisingly right after release, lots of tiny pieces of tempting content materialize with a steep price tag attached. Haven't we just paid a lot of cash for a brand new game?

As CD PROJEKT RED, we strongly believe this is not the way it should work and, with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we have decided to do it differently. Cutting to the chase, everyone who buys Wild Hunt will receive 16 specially prepared DLCs absolutely for free, regardless of platform. You don't have to pre-order, you don't have to buy any special edition to get them -- if you own a copy of Wild Hunt, they're yours. This is our way of saying thank you for buying our game.

Regards, Marcin

(Emphasis added)

The DLC will be distributed in packs of two every week starting on February 25th. The first two packs will include a Temerian Armor Set (with horse armor!) and a Beard and Hairstyle Set for Geralt, then a new look for Yennefer and a new contract mission.

'Long liive the champion!' The woman was committed. You've gotta' give her that. Some players out there got rather creative on their paths to trying to silence the 'Red Lady', or just run away altogether. I could've been totally down for a nice little DLC, 'The Witcher: It Follows' though..
