Hearthstone Witchwood cards REVEAL: Heroes of Warcraft expansion first look

  • Hearthstone's The Witchwood Blizzard

Cards with Echo can be played over and over again, as long as you have the mana to do so.

Late last month we posted about the upcoming Hearthstone expansion and what it means for the game: The arrival of the Year of the Raven! And for a different type of challenge, players can enter "The Forge", where they start each match by building a deck from a new set of cards, and then use that deck to duel other Forge participants. It's similar to the Dungeon Run from Kobolds and Catacombs where you defeat several bosses and pick up cards along the way to strengthen your deck.

Other cards have similarly big effects, like upgrading or reducing the cost of your Hero Power from the start of the game, copying your opponent's hand, or flip-flopping health and attack while still in your hand. However, Rush cards can only attack minions on the turn they're dropped, not the enemy hero. "Play Mode" features traditional head-to-head battles, with players facing off for a chance to increase their medal ranking and earn card packs along the way.

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 video wraps up with a tease for a Hagatha card-a new hero card, quite possibly, but there appear to be at least a couple of Hagathas in the WoW mythos-Hagatha Moorehead, Matron Hagatha-and neither of them look like the character on the card.

If that news wasn't enough to wet your whistle, Blizzard have also revealed that a new single-player experience is on the way.

In The Witchwood's exhilarating single-player mode, Monster Hunt, Gilneas' greatest heroes are called to cleanse the forest of this darkness. These were introduced in 2017's second expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne. 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.

What do you think, are you excited for the new DLC? Both of those additions were popular with fans during the Year of the Mammoth (2017's Standard rotation), and now Blizzard is giving players more of them.
