  • Hearthstone: The Witchwood Expansion Announced

As announced earlier through an announcement video with Hearthstone developers, The Witchwood expansion is the first one of the Year of the Raven and will release in mid- April, meaning there's about a month for Blizzard to reveal all of the set's cards.

Blizzard has just announced a new Hearthstone expansion, which looks like a gamechanger.

Deceptively simple in design but epically engaging, Hearthstone will be instantly accessible to players regardless of their familiarity with Warcraft or collectible card games. Its spooky forests and worgen inhabitants are the setting for Hearthstone's next batch of 135 cards. This is up from the usual 50 packs players previously got for that pre-order price (which was slightly below the standard rate for individual card packs).

Pumpkin Peasant - This card is actually represented as a pair, because as it sits in your hand it will shift from a 2/4 minion to a 4/2 and back again.

To help them survive the night, players can draw on an arsenal of new tricks, including the eerie new Echo keyword.




It also adds the Rush keyword. Echo cards will allow you to play it as many times as you'd like in a single turn as long as you have the mana for it. Minions with the Rush ability are similar to those with Charge, allowing you to attack the same turn the card was cast. This minion would be way too powerful if it could attack the enemy Hero, but as limited to other minions it seems pretty fair. However, if your deck only contains odd-Cost cards, it will upgrade your Hero Power.

The expansion will also add a new Monster Hunt mode to the action, similar to Kobolds & Catacombs' Dungeon Run, that challenges players with a series of eight increasingly hard encounters leading into a big boss fight. And best of all, Monster Hunt will be free for all players come The Witchwood's launch. These were introduced in 2017's second expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne.

What do you think, are you excited for the new DLC? Journey to Un'Goro brought us Quests, Knights of the Frozen Throne gave us Hero Cards, and Kobolds & Catacombs had Legendary Weapons and Spellstones. The team said they will be live on 26th March at 11 AM to unveil and guide about what are cards and how to use them.
