Journey To Un'Goro Is Hearthstone's Next Expansion, Releases Early April

Today Blizzard confirmed that the next set is called Journey to Un'Goro, and is themed around an area of Azeroth known for having particularly weird wildlife.

The next Hearthstone expansion is venturing into the dinosaur-filled jungles of Un'Goro Crater with Journey to Un'Goro in April.

In other big changes, Blizzard have added the first new tribe since 2014. When it dies, it becomes a six-cost, six-attack and six-health minion.

The name is ever so slightly different, but it appears as if the leak earlier this month purporting to out the next card expansion for Hearthstone was right on the money. Along with Amara, it could be a powerful tool against fast-paced, aggressive decks that fill the board with a lot of low-priced minions.

The only card with adapt shown was the Verdant Longneck, a five-mana 5/4 beast. All three forms of Pyros carry the Elemental tag and thus have the potential to benefit from any general Elemental buff effects. The shaman's Earth Elemental, Rumbling Elemental and Fire Elemental cards are obvious choices, as are the mage's Water Elemental and the neutral Frost Elemental. A small handful of these have been revealed, including the five-mana Shaman card Volcano, which randomly deals 15 damage split between all minions. It's also worth noting that Blizzard classifies Pyros as an Elemental. There are a couple of important caveats, however. And on top of that, it has an Overload of two, meaning that on the next turn the Shaman won't be able to utilize two of their mana crystals. It also seems like a great pick for Arena.




With hundreds of cards to choose from, featuring a wide range of colorful Warcraft spells, weapons, and characters, players will have limitless possibilities for developing and fine-tuning their deck-building strategies.

New spells will, of course, feature in the next Hearthstone expansion - like this homage to the infamous Magic: the Gathering card Meteor Shower. But to get to that point, we need the first expansion set release of the year.

Beyond what was revealed here, Blizzard still has 130 or 131 cards left to unveil - depending on whether the developer is counting Awaken the Makers and Amara, Warden of Hope as two separate cards in the set.

"Ready to join Elise Starseeker and her junior explorers on an expedition into the uncharted territory of Un'Goro crater?" a message from Blizzard teases. From tomorrow, February 28, until Journey to Un'Goro's release, you'll be able to pre-purchase a special 50-pack bundle, priced $50. Blizzard will be updating the official Journey to Un'Goro website and encourage players to check back regularly.
