The Year of the Hydra begins for Hearthstone with a new Core Set and many quality of life improvements
The Year of the Hydra for Hearthstone is set to begin on April 12, alongside the release of its first expansion, Voyage to the Sunken City.
Much is changing with the advent of Hearthstone's Core Set, which is live with Forged in the Barrens expansion launch.
Later this year, Hearthstone will be introducing the Core Set, fundamentally changing the selection of cards that compose the very basic toolkits of every class.
If you were watching a BlizzCon panel for Hearthstone and they were covering today's news, one of the slides might read as such: "Basic and Classic sets: GONE!" And it's true: the Hearthstone team is overhauling the game by removing Basic and Classic sets (which are being moved to Wild mode) and adding a brand new Core Set to replace them.
