Hearthstone: The Witchwood Release Date Revealed

Find out what awaits you in Hearthstone's upcoming expansion, The Witchwood.

Blizzard finally announced the release date for The Witchwood expansion, and it is April 12 (mark it on your calendar). It will be Hearthstone's first expansion of 2018 and also the one to kick off The Year of the Raven. In addition to 135 collectible cards, it will introduce two new game mechanics -- Echo and Rush -- and a new single-player game mode called Monster Hunt, which, although information is scarce, is likely to be similar to the well-received Dungeon Run mode. If the guys and gals at Blizzard have learned and improved the rewards system, then Monster Hunt will be a blast to play, featuring four characters unique to this mode and an array of challenges to overcome. Lastly, a new alternate Druid hero, Lunara, will be attainable by winning 10 games in standard play mode, either ranked or casual.

And to top it off, anyone logging in before July 10 will receive three card packs and a random legendary class card, free of charge.
