Next Hearthstone Expansion Is Called "The Witchwood", Brings New Mechanics

Hearthstone® Players Can Unleash Their Inner Beast in Upcoming Expansion The Witchwood™

The Witchwood is slated for a mid-April 2018 release and six new cards have been revealed off the bat, including - who else in a Gilneas-centric adventure - but the King of Gilneas himself, Genn. Players can choose between four unique hero heroes to take down eight bosses in this mode, and they can upgrade their decks after each battle.

"Echo cards can be played multiple times on the turn you play them".

Echo, which makes it so that the card will cast itself over and over again until you run out of mana.

Curious players can keep up with the now announced cards here. The free-to-play game for PC and mobile depends on microtransactions, which largely come from selling digital card packs.

An announcement video, which features a musical number and a preview of Witchwood cards from the development team, can be viewed below.

Ben Brode and company provide more details on the gameplay implications of the new cards in the Blair Witch-style video above, adding to a delightful collection of very unusual Hearthstone trailers.

Based on Blizzard's release schedule, we know that a new Hearthstone expansion was in the works, and the good news for Hearthstone players is that it looks like the new expansion has since been officially announced. In addition, crafty deck-builders can employ powerful minions that challenge them to use only odd- or even-cost cards in exchange for a potent advantage. In addition to 135 new cards joining the fold, a new single-player mode similar to the excellent dungeon run from Kobolds & Catacombs is also coming.

Once the expansion is released, players will have two weeks to arm themselves before embarking on Monster Hunts-the thrilling new single-player Hearthstone experience that will send players deep into The Witchwood to stamp out the evils that lurk within. Each turn a worgen card is in a player's hand, its Attack and Health are swapped, creating opportunities to play the card at just the right time. However, Rush cards can only attack minions on the turn they're dropped, not the enemy hero. Buying into the 50 pack pre-order of The Witchwood will grant you an additional 20 packs in addition to the exclusive card back.
