In the previous years, Blizzard has alternated between releasing an expansion and an adventure for Hearthstone. The expansions focus more on new cards, while adventures offer up different bosses that players have to beat to win new and powerful cards.
Well, this is expected to change in 2017 as they mix things up.
According to an announcement on the Hearthstone website, Blizzard revealed that they will be changing the way they release new content for Hearthstone. In 2017 we will be seeing the release of three 130 card expansions. The first is expected at the start of the year, the second will take place in the middle of the year, and the last will be at the end of the year. According to Blizzard, they like the adventures, they just want to merge both concepts into one.
“Cards will be acquired via packs like other expansions in the past; additionally, each release will include optional single-player missions that will help develop the expansions’ thematic narratives and offer fun challenges.”
The second expansion of 2017 is when players will be able to see this new concept put into action. Blizzard is always changing things up, never sitting still. They keep things fresh for players.
