There are a lot of reasons why people really really really love The Witcher games. They’re excellent open-world action RPGs. They’re chock full of beautifully written dark fantasy quests. They’re maybe the only good example of video games improving on literary source material. And of course Geralt of Rivia is daddy.

But 2015’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gave players one more big reason to love the series, the addictive collectible card game Gwent. And just as Hearthstone became a huge game in its own right separate for its Warcraft roots, Gwent is also worth playing even when Geralt is nowhere to be found. Soon you’ll have even fewer excuses to not check it out since Gwent is coming to iOS on October 29.

Gwent has been more than just a Witcher side mode for a few months now. The standalone game launched late last year after a beta that started back in 2017. That full launch included a full single-player campaign, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. And this week it just got a new expansion, Crimson Curse, adding 100 new cards to the game.

However until now Gwent has only been available on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Physical card games are all about being able to play wherever you can bring a deck. And with this upcoming mobile version Gwent players will also be able to take the game on their travels. After getting the game’s online multiplayer compatible with smartphones, developer CD Projekt Red is bringing Gwent to iOS later this year. The Android version will come after that. Is it too much to hope for a Nintendo Switch version, too?
