Gwent artwork for the Syndicate faction from the Novigrad expansion

[Update]: The Novigrad expansion has now arrived, and as expected, it's a pretty fun one!

If you're tired of supernatural monsters that have arrived as a part of Gwent's previous Crimson Curse expansion, you might be glad to hear that we'll be getting some much more familiar 'monsters' with the upcoming Novigrad expansion. Much like in The Witcher 3, Gwent's Novigrad is riddled with clashing ideologies and plenty of foul deeds, all run and organized by the constantly warring crime lords. 

However, someone has managed to unite the warring factions, and through the promise of never-ending coin coerce them to create the Syndicate. While bad news for the citizens of Novigrad, those of you playing Gwent will be glad to hear that this means we'll getting a new playable faction with five unique leaders!

Besides the Syndicate faction, there will also be new gameplay styles and mechanics for the current factions, as well as over 90 new cards to collect. The details are still few and far between, but you can get a little bit of a sneak peek at Novigrad through the recently posted trailer. Have a gander:

Gwent's Novigrad expansion will be coming this June 28th for PC and consoles. You can follow any further reveals, as well as pre-order some kegs if you're so inclined, over at the official website.
