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

If you're a Hearthstone player (and really, if you're not, what's wrong with you?) you'll know that the Year Of The Raven is nearly upon us.

Coming in April to Windows® and Mac® PCs; Windows, iOS, and Android™ tablets; and mobile phones, The Witchwood card packs will be winnable in Hearthstone's Arena mode, and players can purchase them with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone'sother card packs.

A trio of Hearthstone developers went into the forest to discover the secrets of The Witchwood, the new expansion for Hearthstone.

The expansion will feature 185 new cards and is based around the Worgen cursed city of Gilneas in World Of Warcraft.

The trailer reveals a couple of cards, which are hanging off trees in this Blair Witch Project-stylee reveal video.

Over 130 cards featuring creatures and minions and spells that do bad things, according to the devs. 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.

Registrations open for Westworld mobile game
In the game, players act as a newly hired employee-in-training of Delos, the fictional company that runs the Westworld park. Not the theme park, unfortunately (or should that be fortunately?), but the new mobile game from Warner Bros.

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.

Phantom Militia has Echo means you can play multiple times in one turn depending on how many mana crystals you have. Rush, much like Charge, lets a minion attack immediately, but only against other minions.

For those that have been waiting for a new mode, you'll be getting it with Witchwood as well.

The expansion will also add a new Monster Hunt mode to the action, similar to Kobolds & Catacombs' Dungeon Run, that challenges players with a series of eight increasingly hard encounters leading into a big boss fight.

Each of the four new heroes has access to a special hero power and cards that create completely new playstyles and strategies. And of course you'll get a preorder bonus in the form of a card back.
