Those who wish to transfer their progress to PC and mobile versions will have the option to if they wish to do so. This will require a Gwent account that doesn’t have a GOG account already linked. The option to transfer will be made available on December 9th 2019 until June 9th 2020.
You will also be available to transfer account level and current rank, plus ornaments, cards, deck lists, contracts, Thronebreaker rewards and currencies. According to the developer only Xbox One players will be able to transfer Meteorite Powder. PS4 players will need to spend any remaining Meteorite Powder before transferring their account.
Gwent first launched on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in 2017. This as was followed by an overhaul which came out in September along side a standalone Gwent single-player game called Thronebreaker.
