Blizzard Unveils New Hearthstone Expansion - The Witchwood

13 March, 2018, 11:27 | Author: Tracy Craig
  • Something spooky is stirring at the heart of The Witchwood™ the next expansion for Hearthstone® Blizzard Entertainment’s smash-hit digital card game

Witchwood card reveals will begin on March 26, and the expansion is slated to go live in mid-April. Here, players will choose one of four unique heroes and venture into the mysterious Witchwood. The first is Echo, which causes some cards to create replicas in your hand once played.

Deceptively simple in design but epically engaging, Hearthstone will be instantly accessible to players regardless of their familiarity with Warcraft or collectible card games. Dubbed The Witchwood, this new expansion not only introduce over 135 new cards, it will also include two new keywords and a single-player adventure mode. Aside from winning new cards, players will be able to round out their collections by purchasing new card packs or disenchanting some of their existing cards to craft the ones they're missing.

Blizzard announced the news today, providing fans with their first look at the new Hearthstone Witchwood cards.

Lisa Bonet always sensed Bill Cosby's 'sinister, shadow energy'
There were reports Cosby was unhappy with Bonet's appearance in the R-rated film " Angel Heart " and a topless pictorial. The 50-year-old actress also said that had she known about Cosby's conduct, she would have spoken out.

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

To help them survive the night, players can draw on an arsenal of new tricks, including the eerie new Echo keyword. When an Echo card is played, you can keep playing as many copies of that card as you like that turn, provided you have enough mana.

Inspired by the worgen citizens of Gilneas, some new cards will be able to swap their attack and health values depending on when they are played, and the expansion will also include some legendary cards which reward players for using decks with only odd, or even, cost cards. The expansion also adds another single-player experience that will follow a similar formula to Kobolds & Catacombs' Dungeon Runs, building on one of the game's best ideas from the Year of the Mammoth. "Each time, it'll add a ghostly copy of the card back to your hand that disappears at the end of your turn". However, Rush cards can only attack minions on the turn they're dropped, not the enemy hero. The expansion is available for pre-purchase now, and those who take part will earn 20 packs, as well as an "In a Dark Wood" card. This one-time-only bundle is available on any platform for $49.99 (one purchase per account).
