Hearthstone Will Add An Astounding 390 Cards This Year But There's A Catch
This year will see the biggest updates in the history of Hearthstone as Blizzard is planning to release an astounding 390 cards across the entire year as part of the three 130-card expansions. These three expansions sum up the largest card release to date but it also comes with a price.
Blizzard to Release 390 New Cards In Hearthstone for This Year Alone
Blizzard is set to release a grand total of 390 new cards in Hearthstone before the end of the year. These cards albeit divided into three expansions, all fall into a single year event, called Year of the Mammoth. As reported by Eurogamer, the event's name is in sync with the leaked details regarding the upcoming cards which are said to be mostly themed around dinosaurs.
While this may sound enticing to most fans, there's a setback to the Year of the Mammoth event in Hearthstone and that is, there will be no Adventure-style to be released. This means that there will be no modes to fully weave the story of the newly released cards - there is also no new bosses to beat. However, according to Blizzard, "some elements of the Adventure format will appear as part of the expansion updates."
Hearthstone: Year of the Mammoth
As part of Hearthstone's annual card rotation, older sets such as Blackrock Mountain, The Grand Tournament and League of Explorers will now become exclusives to the Wild mode and will no longer be eligible for competitions. Moreover, Blizzard plans to make these overly used cards to be exclusive in the Wild mode only. These cards are: Azure Drake, Sylvannas Windrunner, Ragnaros the Firelord, Power Overwhelming, Ice Lance and Conceal. Blizzard deems these card to be severely overpowered and would cause a lot of imbalances in the future of the game.
In the Hearthstone blog, developers have shared their insights about the current meta of the game and the upcoming changes that the Year of the Mammoth will bring. According to Blizzard, the upcoming changes will help improve the overall stature of the game and also make new sets a lot interesting for new and existing fans.
