Witchwood card reveals will begin on March 26, and the expansion is slated to go live in mid-April. Clever plays can find ways around the Battlecry, though, so making a new keyword like Rush should allow the card designers some more flexibility.

Something spooky is stirring in the heart of The Witchwood, the next expansion for Hearthstone®, Blizzard Entertainment's smash-hit digital card game. Azalina Soulthief will replace your hand with an exact copy of your opponent's, which should lead to some interesting strategic back-and forth; there's also Genn Greymane, a neutral minion who will reduce your starting Hero Power cost to just 1 if your deck has only even-cost cards at the beginning of the match, and Baku the Mooneater, who will upgrade your Hero Power if your deck contains only odd-cost cards. Six cards from the 135 card expansion were revealed in the announcement.

The lovably goofy reveal trailer ended with a glimpse, but only a glimpse, at a new Warlock Hero card.

"Rush" minions function much like Charge minions in that they can attack immediately after being summoned, but can only attack other minions. As you can see in the video below, Blizzard is pretty excited about this one. HearthStone The Witchwood looks to be inspired by monsters and Halloween.

A new free Monster Hunt single player mode, simiar to Kobolds & Catacombs' Dungeon Run, which will challenge players to eight continuous hard battles, leading into a big boss fight.

Information in this press release that involves Blizzard Entertainment's expectations, plans, intentions or strategies regarding the future, including statements about pricing, preorder dates, release dates, features, and functionality of the The Witchwood expansion for Hearthstone, as well as the release dates, features, and functionality of Monster Hunts, are forward-looking statements that are not facts and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. Blizzard will release more details on Monster Hunts in the weeks to come.

The expansion's new Monster Hunt mode is similar to the Dungeon Run from Kobolds & Catacombs in that it pits players against a series of eight increasingly hard encounters leading into a big boss fight.

Curious players can keep up with the now announced cards here. Blizzard is offering an additional 20 packs to players who pre-purchase 50. This first debuted with last year's second set, Knights of the Frozen Throne, but the most recent expansion Kobolds and Catacombs kicked solo adventuring into high gear with the Dungeon Run.
