Hearthstone's New Dino-Themed Expansion, Journey To Un'Goro, is Out Now

By Matt Wales on at

Good news Hearthstone fans; Journey To Un'Goro, the newest expansion for Blizzard's all-conquering card-battler is out now. It plots a course for the perilous primeval jungles of the Un’Goro Crater, meaning that your card deck will soon be bulging with the likes of carnivorous plants, ancient elementals, active volcanoes, and, of course, dinosaurs.

Journey To Un'Goro adds a total of 135 new cards to the game, alongside a number of new mechanics. There's Adapt, which grants the ability to upgrade certain minions with new powers, and special Quest cards too. These cards cost one mana to deploy and each brings a specific objective into play. Objectives aren't easy to achieve (you might need to summon a set number of specific minions into battle, for instance), but success brings some serious rewards.

Journey To Un'Goro marks the start of Blizzard's new approach to Hearthstone expansions. In the past, it has alternated between card-focused Expansions, and the more lore-and-story-based Adventures. From now on, new expansions will combine both elements, with three such packs scheduled for release this year.
