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

The Witchwood card reveal livestream will begin at 11:00 am PDT on March 26 on the official Hearthstone Twitch.tv channel. They were never heard from again-but we did get a pretty cool teaser out of it. And for a different type of challenge, players can enter "The Forge", where they start each match by building a deck from a new set of cards, and then use that deck to duel other Forge participants. In other words, these will enable new gimmicky decks that may or may not pan out, but people similarly underestimated cards like Razakus that ended up dominating the meta for awhile. Next month, those cunning and courageous enough to hunt down monsters and outwit witches can claim their bounty in the form of 135 hair-raising new cards, complete with some uncanny new gameplay mechanics.

"Dark magic has twisted the creatures of the forest and set them loose upon the Gilnean capital in Azeroth, but King Genn Greymane and his lycanthropic subjects won't make for easy prey", Blizzard said in an announcement.

Today, Blizzard announced the newest expansion for Hearthstone: The Witchwood.

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.


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.

Then there's that new Monster Hunt mode. "Each time, it'll add a ghostly copy of the card back to your hand that disappears at the end of your turn". You'll be able to select four new heroes to join your crusade, each with special powers and "cards that create completely new playstyles and strategies".

Worgen cards will swap their attack and health for each turn they stay in your hand. Those with smaller bank balances can snag a random Class Legendary and three card packs for free by logging in after The Witchwood launches.
