Hearthstone: The Witchwood Expansion Announced, Introducing New Monster Hunt Mode

Hearthstone: The Witchwood Expansion Announced, Introducing New Monster Hunt Mode

More Witchwood card reveals will start on March 26, and the expansion will go live in mid-April.

A new Hagatha card, which Blizzard chose to leave as a mystery for the time!

Curious players can keep up with the now announced cards here. And there will be four new heroes to lead the fight, each with their own hero power and "cards that create completely new playstyles and strategies".

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

Something spooky is stirring in the heart of The Witchwood, the next expansion for Hearthstone®, Blizzard Entertainment's smash-hit digital card game.

The set also introduces the new Echo keyword.

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 new Monster Hunt mode will work similarly to the Koboids and Catacombs' Dungeon Run, as you'll need to take on a string of encounters, before eventually coming face to face with a boss. These ghastly copies can be played again and again (as long as the player has enough mana!) before disappearing at the end of the turn. Then, further along in the hunt, players can add special cards to the deck that empowers the player's hero power.

Baku the Mooneater (7/8, 9 Cost): The counterpart to Genn Graymane, this will also activate at the start of the game. To follow this theme, at least one of the new cards will change in your hand every turn. The new Rush attribute will allow cards to act immediately upon being played, but only to attack other minions, differentiating it from the Charge mechanic.

The Witchwood adds 135 new cards, and the pre-purchase offer includes 20 bonus packs, for a total of 70 card packs when buying in, in addition to a new card back.

A new free Monster Hunt single player mode, simiar to Kobolds & Catacombs' Dungeon Run, which will challenge players to eight continuous hard battles, leading into a big boss fight.
