The Witcher 3 mod replaces combat with gwent games
Hearts of Card, a new mod for The Witcher 3, takes an interesting approach to physical confrontations. All combat is replaced by games of gwent.
There are plenty of opportunities to get into a scrap in The Witcher 3, but if that isn't your thing, perhaps you'd like to settle your differences over a gwent game.
A new mod called Hearts of Card has been released that replaces all combat encounters with a game of gwent. Once someone takes damage in a physical encounter, the gwent game begins.
The mod scales the difficulty of the gwent deck based on the level of enemy you're facing, and if you win you beat all nearby enemies rather than having to play multiple games back to back. But if you lose, you die!
Hearts of Card is still early in development and more features are planned. Players may soon be able to get special drops from beating bosses and see more cards in shops after a tuning of the game's coin economy.
You can see a sped-up version of how the mod works in the video below.
