In the years since its official release, Blizzard Entertainment’s wildly-popular free-to-play card game Hearthstone has brought players to some spectacular new settings in its expansions, with the game’s latest expansion set to bring players back in time in its new card set.

Blizzard has officially revealed its next expansion for Hearthstone, which is called Journey to Un’Goro. Specifically, the latest expansion will feature 135 brand new cards and brings players back into a primordial setting with dinosaurs, elementals, deadly plants, and other vicious creatures for enemies to face.

In addition to the new cards, Journey to Un’Goro will also add some new mechanics to shake up the core gameplay a bit. New “Quest” cards will be added that provide various bonuses when certain requirements in-game are met, such as using a specific card a certain number of times, etc., and function much like Secrets from previous expansions. However, Quests will be seen by opponents as well, who can then try and stop players from activating those cards.

A new ability called Adapt will also be introduced through Journey to Un’Goro, which lets players summon Minions that are given one of three different Elemental powers with varying stats and effects, allowing for unique abilities and powers in certain situations.

Journey to Un’Goro will be available for Hearthstone in April, while pre-orders for the expansion will be open starting tomorrow, February 28th. For a closer look at the upcoming expansion, you can check out the expansion’s cinematic and announcement trailers below:
