Hearthstone: The Witchwood adds Monster Hunt mode

Hearthstone: The Witchwood adds Monster Hunt mode

Something spooky is stirring at the heart of The Witchwood™, the next expansion for Hearthstone®, Blizzard Entertainment's smash-hit digital card game. Cards that read "Echo" can be played multiple times in the same turn.

Curious players can keep up with the now announced cards here. The Year of the Raven is due to arrive in mid-April, and Blizzard revealed today the first of the card game's three planned expansions for the next year. To make things more fair, players will be able to pick up upgrades to their deck after each battle.

With hundreds of cards to choose from, featuring a wide range of colorful Warcraft spells, weapons, and characters, players will have limitless possibilities for developing and fine-tuning their deck-building strategies.

A total of 135 new cards are being added in the upcoming expansion, and some will carry the new Echo keyword. In addition, crafty deck-builders can employ powerful minions that challenge them to use only odd- or even-cost cards in exchange for a potent advantage.

Hearthstone's next expansion is a witch-y affair that brings a chunk of news cards and another dungeon run-style mode to the game.

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.

If that news wasn't enough to wet your whistle, Blizzard have also revealed that a new single-player experience is on the way.

In The Witchwood's exhilarating single-player mode, Monster Hunt, Gilneas' greatest heroes are called to cleanse the forest of this darkness. Their shapeshifting lore causes cards to swap their attack and health every turn it is in your hand - this means players can wait until the right moment to play their minions.

Hearthstone: The Witchwood is available for pre-purchase now, with a bonus 20 packs and "In a Dark Wood" card back on the table for people who pony up early.

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.

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. This one-time-only bundle is available on any platform for $49.99 (one purchase per account).
