Blizzard comes with great surprises this year for Hearthstone players. They will release three expansions that together will sum up the greatest card release in the history of Hearthstone. Unfortunately, the exciting expansions come at a price.
Hearthstone is a free-to-play online collectible card game which is developed by the giant game developers Blizzard. The game is suitable for fans of the Warcraft series, since it brings the same elements, characters, and lore.
Blizzard is planning to release the astounding number of 390 new cards divided into three expansions of 130 cards each. These releases fall all into one big event, which is called Year of the Mammoth. Eurogamer revealed that the name of the event might be related to a general theme of all these cards. This common theme may be something related to dinosaurs.
With these information, we most probably have captured the interest of all hardcore fans of Hearthstone. However, there is some bad news. Blizzard will not be releasing an Adventure style for these cards. That is, there will be no modes that can perfectly unveil the story if these new cards and there are no new bosses that players can beat. However, Blizzard said that some elements of an Adventure format might be available with the expansions.
Hearthstone performs a card rotation every year. This year’s rotation will bring sets such as League of Explorers, Blackrock Mountain, or The Grand Tournament only to the Wild mode. This means that they will no longer be available for competitions.
Also, Blizzard is planning to make certain popular cards available only in Wild mode, too. These overly used cards include Power Overwhelming, Conceal, Ice Lance, Ragnaros the Firelord, Azure Drake, and Sylvannas Windrunner. They explained that they were moving these cards away since they might be unsuitable for competitions. Also, they might become overpowered in the future of the game and will bring disadvantages to their users in competition.
The developers talked about these novelties and updates on the Hearthstone blog. They declared that the Year of the Mammoth will bring numerous improvements to the game and will make the gameplay more exciting for older fans and capable to catch the attention of new fans.
