The next expansion of the card game Hearthstone has been announced. Named Descent of Dragons, this expansion bears the meaning of Year of the Dragon. It will follow the plot of the previous two versions. Descent of Dragons will be released on October 10 and is currently available for pre-order.
The new keyword this time for the game is Invoke. It allows you to upgrade cards to a more powerful version. For example, Galakrond will evolve into three forms, using Invoke – and all players will receive a copy of Galakrond.
In addition to the ability to evolve whenever you use an Invoke, Galakrond will also grant his Hero Power. For example, when Seal Fate was cast, it not only dealt 3 damage to minions full of blood, but also added a random Lackey from Galakrond's Hero Power.
Hearthstone expansions are scheduled every four months. Each expansion pack will bring new meta and game play. With the recent expansion of Saviors of Uldum, players witness the return of the Quest mechanism and the rise of Shaman decks.
