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

Hearthstone: The Witchwood expansion will have a Dungeon Run-style 'Monster Hunt' mode

Blizzard has announced its first Hearthstone expansion for the Year of the Raven, titled The Witchwood.

Hearthstone has announced its first expansion of 2018. In other words, these will enable new gimmicky decks that may or may not pan out, but people similarly underestimated cards like Razakus that ended up dominating the meta for awhile.

Further Witchwood card reveals will begin on March 26. The expansion will introduce 135 new cards, four new card mechanics, and a new single-player mode called Monster Hunt.

Two minion powers are also unveiled: "Echo", and "Rush".

Echo, which you can see in the looped image above, allows certain cards to be played an infinite number of times in a turn; provided the player has the mana. However, instead of text reading "Repeatable this turn", Blizzard has simply created the Echo mechanic. Rush will also be introduced, working in a similar effect to Charge, except this time affecting Minions exclusively.

What do you think, are you excited for the new DLC? HearthStone The Witchwood looks to be inspired by monsters and Halloween. The leaders of Gilneas are finalizing preparations for these expeditions, and will share more details in the weeks to come.

The expansion's new Monster Hunt mode is similar to the Dungeon Run from Kobolds & Catacombs in that it pits players against a series of eight increasingly hard encounters leading into a big boss fight.

Just like with Dungeon Run, players will have the opportunity to equip new items after each encounter.

Hearthstone: The Witchwood is available for pre-purchase now, with a bonus 20 packs and "In a Dark Wood" card back on the table for people who pony up early. Factors that could cause Blizzard Entertainment's actual future results to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements set forth in this release include unanticipated product delays and other factors identified in the risk factors sections of Activision Blizzard's most recent annual report on Form 10-K and any subsequent quarterly reports on Form 10-Q.
