Blizzard has officially announced Journey to Un’Goro, the next expansion for Hearthstone.
The expansion launches in early April and introduces 135 new cards to the game. Players looking to get a head start can pre-purchase 50 Journey to Un’Goro card packs for $49.99. Doing so will also unlock an exclusive Fossil card back.
A major new addition in this expansion is the Quest card. These cards cost one mana and give players a task to complete during a match. Completing this quest will reward players with an incredibly powerful card. The example given is for the priest quest which rewards Amara, Warden of Hope, a five-mana 8/8 with taunt and a Battlecry that sets a hero’s health to 40.
Along with Quest cards, the expansion also introduces a new Battlecry called Adapt. When a minion with Adapt enters the battlefield, players can choose one of three adaptions that range from additional attack to gain divine shield.
Finally, Journey to Un’Goro adds a new minion type with Elementals. As well as new expansion cards, some currently available cards have been retrofitted with the Elemental type.
