The wheels trigger a new Hearthstone expansion, and although we don’t know yet when it will be released, we do know when it will be revealed: at 9:30 am PT / 12:30 pm ET on July 1st.
Lead designer Alec Dawson will kick off the revelation event with an overview of the second phase of the Gryphon Year, after which game designers Liv Breeden and John McIntyre will get into the flesh of what’s to come. new card game. There will also be news about Hearthstone Battlegrounds.
Something that will not be seen during playback Hearthstone Mercenaries, the team-based roguelike mode with simultaneous combat that was unveiled in February. A leak from the recent poll gave us a little more insight into what this is all about, but Blizzard said the mode isn’t ready for its close-up yet. The expectation right now is that the mercenaries will be deployed sometime in the second phase of the Gryphon Year. No date has been set for this, but a "Hearthstone Mercenaries Flow" will take place sometime in the fall.

As for the next expansion, there are no further details, but the mockery obviously hints at something thematic after the Alliance. Given that the previous expansion, Forged in the Barrens, was all for the Horde, that makes sense. The revelation of the Hearthstone expansion will be broadcast live Twitch i YouTubeand we will have an interview with the developers shortly after the program ends.
