Hearthstone is teasing a reveal of its next expansion for July 1st, which is this Thursday.

The Warcraft themed card game is getting a new reveal this week, Blizzard has teased, coming on July 1st. The tese was shared on Twitter, with the teaser video being decidedly Alliance themed.

As noted on the Hearthstone website: the reveal won't show off the upcoming roguelike game, Hearthstone Mercenaries. Instead this reveal will be focused on the card game, with lead designer Alec Dawson starting the show talking about the Year of the Gryphon. Game Designers Live Breeden and John McIntyre will continue the show, talking up the next set.

Separately, we know you’re eager to learn more about Hearthstone Mercenaries. While we’re very excited with how things are coming together, we need more time to implement all the awesome content we’ve planned for the mode. As such, we’re now expecting Hearthstone Mercenaries to be released in Phase 2 of the Year of the Gryphon and won’t be quite ready to share details on the mode during the stream on July 1.

The most recent expansion, Forged in the Barrens, was focused on the Horde, so it would make sense that this coming expansion, especially given the teaser video, would be honing in on the Alliance. For all the details, the stream will be kicking off on July 1st at 9:30 am PT on the official Twitch and YouTube channels.
