New Hearthstone Expansion 'The Witchwood' Announced

New Hearthstone Expansion 'The Witchwood' Announced”

Deceptively simple in design but epically engaging, Hearthstone will be instantly accessible to players regardless of their familiarity with Warcraft or collectible card games.

"Dark magic has twisted the creatures of the forest and set them loose upon the Gilnean capital in Azeroth, but King Genn Greymane and his lycanthropic subjects won't make for easy prey", Blizzard said in an announcement. There's no official release date set yet, but The Witchwood is scheduled to arrive in mid-April.

It's been a while since we've seen a new addition to the Hearthstone universe, but we figured it would only be a matter of time before Blizzard brought something new to the party. The first is Echo, which causes some cards to create replicas in your hand once played. The Shaman's Unstable Evolution allows multiple plays in the same turn, and cards like Charged Devilsaur have had Charge but disallowed attacks on Heroes as a Battlecry.

"Minions with the Rush keyword can attack other minions immediately after they hit the board, either by being played or summoned".

Here's a preview of seven new cards coming to the expansion.

For those that have been waiting for a new mode, you'll be getting it with Witchwood as well. They'll have to survive eight increasingly hard brawls in order to face the boss fight that waits for them in the heart of the wood.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure those Hearthstone guys in the video are actually perfectly OK, so you can stop worrying about them and have a look at the first of the new cards down below. The second is Rush, which works similar to the existing Charge mechanic but disallows attacks toward the opposing Hero on their opening turn.

Much like the single-player mode Dungeon Run from the 2017 Hearthstone expansion Kobolds & Catacombs, Monster Hunt will pit players against a series of bosses and reward players with select groupings of cards to further build your Monster Hunt deck. Hero Cards were introduced in the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion, and they replace your Hero with an entirely new and powerful effect.
