Dungeon Run

The next expansion of Hearthstone will introduce a PvE deck-building mode called Dungeon Run. (Oddly, I can't find an official announcement to link, but there's been plenty of third-party coverage over the past few days.)

I assume Peter Whalen (of Dream Quest fame) was involved. I'm looking forward to trying it, although the demo makes it look like every run starts with a few boringly easy bosses, so that's not great.

PvE arena? Uh, no thanks.

The deck-building mechanic is entirely different from arena. You're offered dungeon-run-specific effects, dungeon-run-specific cards, and bundles of ordinary cards as you progress through the run.

IDK if it will have any lasting value as a mode, but it's something quite distinct from the other modes they've done.

How is that different? Here are three things, pick one of the three things to modify your deck and prepare you for a random set of possible foes (random bosses instead of random classes played by humans)

It's about as different as when a new set releases, we're now offered Knights of the Frozen Throne specific cards in arena now.  If you want me to count Dungeon Run as a new expansion, sure, it's that.  But it's not sealed or something.

I don't know how I'm supposed to be extra excited about the cards that cost 0 mana and start in your hand.  Nonccg RPG elements in the ccg game, sure.

I'll play this, though.  It's a new expansion.  It's just one I have to play against AI which is likely to be less fun.  I expect I'll get less out of it than Halloween.

I wish I played more Halloween arena.

At the end of the day, it's still single player (against presumably a lousy AI). I have several other things I could be doing with my limited time, like play a game built around single player (e.g. a first person shooter) or play some games of Dominion against the bot.

I will try it though. It's a way to get some possibly fun Hearthstone action without having to get the newest cards.
