Hearthstone kicks off the Year of the Raven with The Witchwood expansion

13 March 2018

As announced earlier through an announcement video with Hearthstone developers, The Witchwood expansion is the first one of the Year of the Raven and will release in mid- April, meaning there's about a month for Blizzard to reveal all of the set's cards. The citizens of this proud kingdom, who can shapeshift into ferocious wolf-beasts known as worgen, are bringing the fight to The Witchwood with tooth and claw-and soon, Hearthstone players will join the pack and help them face down the horrors within.

Information in this press release that involves Blizzard Entertainment's expectations, plans, intentions or strategies regarding the future, including statements about pricing, preorder dates, release dates, features, and functionality of the The Witchwood expansion for Hearthstone, as well as the release dates, features, and functionality of Monster Hunts, are forward-looking statements that are not facts and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Cards that read "Echo" can be played multiple times in the same turn. For the rest of your turn, you can play these echoes as long as you have the mana. Rush will also be introduced, working in a similar effect to Charge, except this time affecting Minions exclusively. There are also new Worgen cards - my personal favorite - which will swap their health and attack values each turn, and minions that reward you for building a deck using only cards that have either an even or odd cost.

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

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. As one of four new heroes you've got to make it through eight increasingly challenging battles that culminate in a boss fight. They'll have to survive eight increasingly hard brawls in order to face the boss fight that waits for them in the heart of the wood.

The Witchwood is now available for pre-purchase on Blizzard's store for $49.99 and comes with 70 decks filled with new cards. "Monster Hunt will release two weeks after The Witchwood launches".
