[BETA VIDEO] GWENT: The Witcher Card Game | SOCIAL FEATURES


Hello and welcome, it’s Marcin
together with Jason!
Oh, hey, sorry! I got distracted
by our cool, new recording studio.
It’s pretty awesome!
It is, it is. It’s our first time here…
Yeah, I’m super excited!
Yeah, so am I!
But! Let’s get to the point!
We are here to bring you some cool news
about the upcoming patch!
Jason, can you tell us more about that?
Yeah, sure. We are working on
a lot of things right now for you guys.
But in this patch we wanted to focus
on releasing our first versions of
what I would consider social features.
You know, things that help players
interact with each other
and get more of a community vibe from our game.
Because this is a community feature
we wanted to release something in progress
so that you guys can give us your feedback
and we can make them even better
in a way that we know you want them.
First thing we can talk about is
how we plan on being able to
communicate better with our players.
The first way that we are gonna
be adding for that is
what we call ‘the in-game news’.
So if you have some new news
that you have never seen before in your client,
after you log in you will be redirected
to this page in menus
instead of the multiplayer.
And in here we can communicate
lots of things to you and even give you
shortcuts to things like patch notes.
And if there is a cool event
that will be coming to our Twitch channel
you can actually tune in to that event
directly from the game.
Also you will have a possibility
to follow our social channels
like Twitter, Facebook, our official Forums, Reddit.
Just go there directly from the game as well.
Additionally, we wanted to avoid
what I would call a pop-up armageddon.
That’s where, like after you login
we have to give you a large series of pop-ups,
you know, your season rank and then
all the other stuff that we want to communicate to you.
We want to give players a chance
to digest that at their own pace
so we added the notfication system
which works a lot like a mailbox.
Now, moving over to the next feature
if you are like me,
love all sorts of stats and numbers
you’re gonna be pretty excited about this one.
I’m pretty excited to show this one too.
It’s a very early stage of the feature
that we call the ‘Profile menus’.
This will be a way to represent the player
and it can be broken down into two pieces.
You have the left half of the screen,
what I like to call the player banner,
and it kind of represents the player at its core.
So you have things there like
your name, your title, your border,
the total victories you have,
the card collection progress,
your current rank,
the highest rank you’ve ever reached.
We want this Geralt Premium card
to be replacable by whichever card
you want to put into your profile.
Unless your favourite card is Geralt Premium.
Yeah, it’s true.
So, I mentioned my infatuation with numbers previously…
I see a lot of those on the right
but also I see some space.
Definitely, there’s some numbers here you can love
including your collection
and your victory progress per faction,
so that’s kind of nice.
And the reason there’s so much space there is
we really wanna work with the community
to figure out what else
they would like to see on the screen.
One quick thing to mention is
we’ve designed this so that we can add tabs here.
For example, one of the tabs
we want to add in the future
is a match history
so you can see all your match histories.
And this would serve as a summary screen
so you maybe have your last match here
and you can go to the match history to see more.
There’s also another feature
you guys are working on,
that will bring players closer together within the game.
Yes, within our social panel
we’ll be adding a tab for a Friends List.
And in that list you’ll be able to have
your last five recent players you played against,
and you’ll be able to try and add those
as your friends directly in our game UI
and then you will have a list of all the friend invites you have received
so you can accept them or decline them there.
And then there’s the Friends List
and in this list you’ll be able to
send match requests to your friends,
you’ll be able to chat with them,
you’ll be able to see their profiles.
What they’re doing in the game.
Yeah, all that cool stuff.
And this feature is coming to PC
in the next update?
Yeah, but we’re working really hard
to bring it to all our platforms.
Okay, so we are kinda done
with talking about new features
that are coming to this update
but are there any other small additions?
Yeah, in every update we try to always put
a few quality of life improvements
and the two that really stand up for me in this patch
is in the pack opening,
when you have to choose three,
we’ll now be showing an additional number,
in brackets, that represents
the amount of cards you have
across all variations, whether Premium or not.
And it’ll help players make
more informed decision during pack opening.
The other thing I’m quite happy about is,
for those playing with a gamepad,
you’ll now be able to navigate
your keywords into tooltip
to get your information even better than before.
Last but not least,
we also have a Starter Pack
which is a great way
to get yout card collection off the ground.
This set contains 400 Meteorite powder, 10 card kegs
and most of all, a guaranteed legendary card.
And… thanks for watching guys!
Yeah, thanks a lot!
And please remember
awesomeness of all of these features
depends on your feedback,
so keep it coming, we wanna hear it.
Yeah, and see you next time!
Yeah, and come on!
Oh, that’s right.
