In an eerie throwback to The Blair Witch Project, the HearthStone team has taken to the woods to introduce the first expansion for 2018: The Witchwood! "In 2018, three Hearthstone game developers went into the Irvine California backwoods surrounding Blizzard Entertainment to discover the truth about The Witchwood. The film you are about to see was recovered from the recording equipment they left behind in the woods*."
Over 130 cards featuring creatures and minions and spells that do terrible things, according to the devs.
- One new card "Azalina Southief" copies your opponent's hand.
- Genn Greymane checks your deck and if you have "even cost cards", all costs will be reduced to 1. Baku the Mooneater provides the opposite effect for odd cost cards.
- Phantom Militia has Echo means you can play multiple times in one turn depending on how many mana crystals you have.
- Pumpkin Peasant provides Life Steal.
- Militia Commander has Rush.
You can fire up the game and check out pre-purchase options or, in the meantime, head to the Hearthstone site to learn more.
