Blizzard brings the Year of the Mammoth in “Hearthstone” with the new expansion “Journey to Un’Goro”. So far, it was unclear when this drastic event occurred.
Now there are references which suggest the launch on April 6. On the one hand, the game director of “Hearthstone” Ben Brode on Twitter to the date expressed: At the beginning of April comes the add-on according to Brode.
On the other hand, an Amazon product page provides more, more specific information. On the website, users can pre-order the add-on; This action ends on April 5.
Such product pages have existed regularly before the start of extensions. And often these have confirmed the start date indirectly.
Hearthstone: Journey to Un’Goro and the Year of the Mammoth
With the expansion, 135 cards come into the game, which partly brings new mechanics.
With the start of “Travel to Un’Goro” the maps of the add-ons “Der Schwarzfels”, “Das Große Turnier” and “The Explorer League” disappear from the standard mode of “Hearthstone”.
Thus, popular characters such as Reno Jackson or Brann Bronze bars are no longer playable there.
The developers go one step further and also take some classic cards from the standard mode.
This decision caused a stir in the community, as these cards were seen as safe standard candidates. The Azurbala Dragon, Ragnaros the Fire Prince and Sylvanas Windrunner are affected.
After all, if you have created one of the affected cards with dust, you will be refunded the full manufacturing costs automatically.
And you keep the cards in your collection to use them in wild mode.
