All About the Hearthstone Voyage to the Sunken City Expansion
The Voyage to the Sunken City release date will be April 12th, and the expansion will feature 135 new cards, the Naga minion type, plus the Colossal and Dredge keywords.
Earlier in March, Hearthstone Game Designers Cora “SongBird” Georgiou and Edward “Gallon” Goodwin sat down with Esports.gg for a conversation about Voyage to the Sunken City.

“I think Colossal might be the best keyword we’ve ever made outside of Discovery,” Gallon said in the interview. “So Colossal minions are minions that are just too big to fit onto just one card. So whenever you summon them—not just play them—whenever you summon them like if you recruit them or summon them in your deck, they will spawn with their extra appendages. And these are unique limbs that will play off the main body’s textbox in very interesting ways.”
