Which introduces one of the most interesting new card mechanics in a long while, called Echo. Cards with Echo can be played over and over again, as long as you have the mana to do so. Which means casting multiple minions or spells from the same card. The Witchwood also marks the beginning of a brand-new Hearthstone Year: The Year of the Raven.
That will no doubt change the current meta in pretty big ways as cards from Whispers of the Old Gods, One Night in Karazhan, and Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansions make their way to Wild and out of Standard rotation.
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. 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.
In addition to 135 new cards joining the fold, a new single-player mode similar to the excellent dungeon run from Kobolds & Catacombs is also coming. Called Monster Hunt, players will be tasked with venturing deeper and deeper into The Witchwood to cleanse the forest of darkness.
The Witchwood is expect to launch sometime in April, with Monster Hunt to follow two weeks later. For mroe info and a sneak peak at some of the new cards, head to TheWitchwood.com.
