Hearthstone announces the Year of the Hydra with a roadmap of changes coming to Classic, Battlegrounds, and its other formats over the next year.
Foyer fans prepare to dive into Journey to the Sunken City, its next expansion. In addition to the new card game, Foyer announced the Year of the Hydra – the next annual expansion cycle – and shared some updates coming to the game.
The Year of the Hydra begins in earnest on April 12 with the launch of the Journey to the Sunken City set of cards. However, many of the upcoming changes Foyer have already gone live, including new arena and battleground heroes, as well as changes to mercenary tasks.
With the arrival of a new Foyer year, the Ashes of Outland, Scholomance Academyand Madness at the Darkmoon Faire will leave the Standard in favor of Journey to the Sunken City and the two extensions that follow. Additionally, the basic set of Foyer evolves, with a net gain of 15 more cards in this Core than the previous one. Foyer shared a roadmap of changes coming over the next year, which focus on refining existing systems and adding quality-of-life improvements to its various game modes.
Year of the Hydra is one of many exciting updates to Foyer. Along with changes to the base set, Foyer revealed the rewards track for Journey to the Sunken City, along with the full list of upcoming cards in the set. With the Foyer Theory Building Event for Journey to the Sunken City taking place on the 7th before the set is released, players will get their first look at how the new cards interact with the rest of the game.
Players are already fired up for the Year of the Hydra. While many are sad to see old sets coming out of Standard, they will still be available in Wild – and many cards will return to their original strength after being nerfed for Standard. Moreover, it seems Foyer improves the Mercenaries mode, which has received mixed reviews since its launch last year.
That said, many Foyer players are worried about the upcoming changes in the game. Some cards are added to the Foyer Core sets, such as Reno Jackson and Brann Bronzebeard, have been involved in powerful combos in the past, and many un-edgy cards in Wild have players terrified of trying to compete in the each-for-one format. self. Nonetheless, the Year of the Hydra is almost upon us, so players will need to discover ways to counter these devastating strategies as they appear.
Foyer is now available for mobile and PC. Journey to the Sunken City released on April 12.
