Back when CD Projekt Red first showcased the standalone version of Gwent, we noticed many interesting deviations from the version found in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. One of the more notable ones was the removal of the Nilfgaardian deck, which was replaced with a Skelligan one. Now, the developer plans to bring this popular faction back into the fold via a major content update next week. 

According to the press release, the new faction is focused on controlling the battlefield. Its faction-specific cards give players the ability to reveal cards in an opponent's hand, control the order of their cards, or even introduce disloyal units to their ranks. Starting on February 6, players can collect the 60 new cards, which expand beyond the new faction to include new options for the Northern Realms, Scoia'tael, Skellige, and Monsters decks as well. 

Gwent is still in closed beta for Xbox One and PC. You can try to join the test group by visiting the official website.
