Witchwood card reveals will begin on March 26, and the expansion is slated to go live in mid-April.
The new single-player mode is Monster Hunt.
Well, tonight, Blizzard has announced the name of said new expansion - The Witchwood. The citizens of this proud kingdom, who can shapeshift into ferocious wolf-beasts known as worgen, are bringing the fight to The Witchwood with tooth and claw-and soon, Hearthstone players will join the pack and help them face down the horrors within.
Oh, and I'm pretty sure those Hearthstone guys in the video are actually perfectly OK, so you can stop worrying about them and have a look at the first of the new cards down below.
Witchwood features 135 new cards, a new Echo keyword that allows a card to be played multiple times on the same turn, and a new Rush keyword that which lets minions attack other minions on the same turn that they hit the board.
Neil deGrasse Tyson delivers proof the Earth is round

Genn Greymane checks your deck and if you have "even cost cards", all costs will be reduced to 1. The leaders of Gilneas are finalizing preparations for these expeditions, and will share more details in the weeks to come.
It sounds like Witchwood could be the most intriguing addition to the Hearthstone world to date, especially with the new mode and the stack of new cards coming our way.
Now for the important bit; The Witchwood is available for preorder right now over on Blizzard's official site, and if you pick up 50 packs, you get an extra 20 for free.
