With all that experience fighting Quilboar in the Barrens, heroes like you have leveled up! It’s time to replenish your bags, repair your armor, and prepare for a new quest. . .
Join us on July 1 at 9:30 a.m. PT, on either Twitch or YouTube, for the reveal of the next Hearthstone expansion! Lead Designer Alec Dawson will kick things off with an overview on what you can expect from Phase 2 of the Year of the Gryphon. From there, Game Designers Liv Breeden and John McIntyre will dive into what’s new in the upcoming card set. We also have some news to share for Battlegrounds. We’ve got plenty to talk about, you won’t want to miss it!
Separately, we know you’re eager to learn more about Hearthstone Mercenaries. While we’re very excited with how things are coming together, we need more time to implement all the awesome content we’ve planned for the mode. As such, we’re now expecting Hearthstone Mercenaries to be released in Phase 2 of the Year of the Gryphon and won’t be quite ready to share details on the mode during the stream on July 1.
Instead, we’ll be hosting a dedicated Hearthstone Mercenaries stream this Fall. We’ll give more details about this stream closer to its broadcast date. Until then, we hope you’ll enjoy the expansion reveal and all the things still to come in the Year of the Gryphon!
