This set also marks the start of the Year of the Raven, a rotation in the game's standard cycle that will move cards from older sets out of eligibility in Hearthstone's Standard formats.

Ben Brode and company provide more details on the gameplay implications of the new cards in the Blair Witch-style video above, adding to a delightful collection of very unusual Hearthstone trailers. The twisted beings of The Witchwood set upon the city but King Genn Greymane and his city of wolf beasts known as Worgen are fighting back and in the expansion players are set to join them.

The expansion brings a few new gameplay systems to Hearthstone. Whether players prefer to wield magic or arms in battle, strike from the shadows or head on-or have never given any of that much thought-they'll be able to jump right in, create a deck, and get in on the card-slinging action. This is different from a current keyword, Charge, which lets minions immediately attack minions and Heroes. Witchwood cards will introduce new mechanics like Echo and Rush. This will allow us to use a card that's already been played, no matter how many times it's been used before.

Better yet, if your favorite part of Kobolds & Catacombs was the Dungeon Run mode, The Witchwood will have a similar single player component called Monster Hunt. They'll have to survive eight increasingly hard brawls in order to face the boss fight that waits for them in the heart of the wood.
