Blizzard Entertainment has announced a new expansion for their digital card game Hearthstone, The Witchwood, which will add 135 new cards and some new gameplay mechanics next month.
The expansion and corresponding singleplayer adventure is based on the creatures that lurk in the forest and are twisted by dark magic. These creatures attack the capital of Gilnean in Azeroth, but these citizens and their king Genn Greymane are shapeshifters who can transform into Worgen (wolf-beasts).
The Witchwood adds the Echo ability to cards. Cards with Echo can be played over and over, if players have enough mana during a turn. Rush cards are also new and work like Charge cards. The only difference is cards with Rush can only attack minions which were put on the board that turn.
Players can pre-purchase a The Witchwood pack bundle for 20 bonus packs and the In a Dark Wood cardback. Check out the announcement video, as well as a gameplay video and a seven of the new cards below.
