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

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

If, for example, you have nine-mana and you have a 3-cost minion with Echo, you can play that minion three times in the same turn.

Something spooky is stirring in the heart of The Witchwood, the next expansion for Blizzard's Hearthstone. The Witchwood also marks the beginning of a brand-new Hearthstone Year: The Year of the Raven. The film you are about to see was recovered from the recording equipment they left behind in the woods*. Similarly, Genn Greymane is a 6 mana, 6/5 minion that reduces your hero power's cost to one crystal if your deck has nothing but cards with an even mana cost.

Here's a preview of seven new cards coming to the expansion.

Baku the Mooneater is a 9 mana, 7/8 minion that will buff your hero power if your deck has cards that only cost an odd amount of mana. First up, you've got Azalina Soulthief, who replaces your current hand with an exact copy of your opponents hand, meaning both players know exactly what they're facing.

Sensex up by 294 57 pts
At 11.06 a.m, the Sensex was trading up 317.57 points or 0.95% at 33,624.71 with 24 components gaining. Rising bond yields, weak global markets and banking woes have led to the sell-off.

There's also a new Echo keyword that enables a card to be played multiple times on the same turns, and Rush, which can attack minions the same turn that they come into play-similar to the Charge keyword, except it's only against minions.

Ben Brode has also announced A new Shaman Hero Card, "Hagatha", which will be the only one in the expansion. This first debuted with last year's second set, Knights of the Frozen Throne, but the most recent expansion Kobolds and Catacombs kicked solo adventuring into high gear with the Dungeon Run.

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.

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. If you're really keen to learn the cards, the Hearthstone team will host a livestream on its Twitch channel at 11am PT on March 26th where it will start revealing them.
