Corrupt: Gain +4/+4.  If you play a 6 mana card, and then this card, it becomes a 5 mana, 8/8 Beast with Rush.  The card will change in  your hand to the new stats when the Corrupt keyword is triggered.* New Legendary card, Silas Darkmoon will be available today to everyone for free.  7 mana, 4/4 Battlecry: Choose a direction to rotate all minions. (including him)* Mini-expansion set will be added to card packs mid-expansion that will include an additional 35 cards.  These will be added to card packs and can be crafted.* New Cards revealed so far* System Revamp* Progression system (Reward Track)* New progression system where you unlock new rewards as you play Hearthstone.  The more you play, the more you unlock. * This new system will not take away ways to earn gold. Players should end up with more gold and rewards overall.* Includes a free track for all players and a paid track that can be unlocked by purchasing the Tavern Pass.* Purchasing the Tavern Pass at any point during the expansion will grant the player a Golden Silas Darkmoon Legendary card, a 10% XP boost that lasts for the duration of the expansion and all items up to your current level on the free track.* With the Tavern Pass, you will earn additional XP boosts, the Annhylde Alternate Warrior Hero and card back, 3 Jaina Hero skins, 3 Thrall Hero skins and one of Hearthstone’s first collectible Cosmetic coins. * Cosmetic coins are obtainable by 2 means* Completing all 50 levels of the Reward track with the Tavern Pass* Collecting 135 unique MDF cards* Achievement system* New revamped achievement system based on various areas of the game. Achievements can be found in Battlegrounds, your collection, situations like killing someone with N’Zoth, ranked milestones, adventure content, and Tavern Brawls. * Will be able to see exactly how many cards you have from each expansion.* Examples:* Encounter another player with the Mark of Hakkar card back* Finish in 1st place as Ragnaros the Firelord in Battlegrounds* Collection all Scholomance Academy Demon Hunter cards* Summon 1000 Murlocs* Win a game without summoning more than 1 minion* Collection achievements* If you complete a collection, you can earn special cosmetic Coin cards that work like Heroes and card backs. Allows you to replace your Coin card with the special coin you earned.  * The achievement is completed when you get all the cards of an expansion, including all Legendaries.  However, going forward, they are going to start releasing mini-card expansions in between the main expansions that will increase the card size of an expansion.  For example, MDF will have 135 cards at launch.  The mini-expansion will add an additional 35 cards, bringing the total to 170.  You only need 135 to unlock the collection achievement.
