Hearthstone: 6 new cards from the new 'Witchwood' expansion

Hearthstone: The Witchwood expansion will have a Dungeon Run-style 'Monster Hunt' mode

Titled the Witchwood, we've got a look at the first few cards for the spooky-themed add-on, and some details about what to expect from the new single-player mode.

Deceptively simple in design but epically engaging, Hearthstone will be instantly accessible to players regardless of their familiarity with Warcraft or collectible card games. The heroes all have a unique hero power and their own cards to help build new strategies, and each encounter you clear nets you loot in the form of cards to improve your deck for the remainder of the hunt. However, Rush cards can only attack minions on the turn they're dropped, not the enemy hero. They were never heard from again-but we did get a pretty cool teaser out of it. Aside from winning new cards, players will be able to round out their collections by purchasing new card packs or disenchanting some of their existing cards to craft the ones they're missing.

Blizzard has announced Hearthstone's next expansion launches next month, adding 135 new cards to the game and introducing brand new gameplay mechanics.

"Echo cards can be played multiple times on the turn you play them".

Apple Buys Texture Digital Magazine Service in Subscription Push
Eddy Cue , a top executive at Apple, is expected to discuss the purchase of Texture at SXSW. Details of how much Apple is buying Texture for remain undisclosed.

A trio of Hearthstone developers went into the forest to discover the secrets of The Witchwood, the new expansion for Hearthstone. When an Echo card is played, you can keep playing as many copies of that card as you like that turn, provided you have enough mana. In addition, crafty deck-builders can employ powerful minions that challenge them to use only odd- or even-cost cards in exchange for a potent advantage.

The Witchwood will also see the addition of the Monster Hunt mode, which is similar to the Dungeon Run from Kobolds & Catacombs.

Ben Brode has also announced A new Shaman Hero Card, "Hagatha", which will be the only one in the expansion. Rush, much like Charge, lets a minion attack immediately, but only against other minions.

Buying into the 50 pack pre-order of The Witchwood will grant you an additional 20 packs in addition to the exclusive card back.
