Hearthstone's New Big Expansion, Kobolds & Catacombs, Launches Next Week


The good news is that Blizzard is giving away a few free packs and cards.

Pesky Kobolds have been tunneling beneath Azeroth for thousands of years, uncovering and hoarding artifacts long forgotten by mortals and surface dwellers. but whispers of these mighty treasures ripe for the taking have begun to spread throughout taverns far and wide. The expansion also adds a handful of new abilities including Recruit, which pulls a minion from your deck, and the game's first legendary weapons. Intrepid adventurers will also be able to arm themselves with one of nine new class-specific Legendary Weapons!

The expansion introduces 135 new cards, as well as a free single player choose your own adventure style dungeon run mode available to all players. This mode starts you off with a fairly weak deck which you grow and expand after beating bosses. Players will receive their FOR THE HOARD card back and packs as soon as their purchase is processed, and can break the seal on their card packs once Kobolds & Catacombs goes live.

Blizzard has confirmed that the latest Hearthstone expansion, Kobolds and Catacombs, will be released on December 8th.

"It's hard to put definitive numbers to those sets, but three full sets - whatever that may mean, give or take cards - is absolutely the plan, with missions in each", Thompson confirmed over on Metabomb, adding that "we feel it's best to continue to add mission content to the actual release set for several reasons". Starting November 6, this pre-purchase offer will also be available in-app for iOS and Android players for 49.99 Dollars, and will reflect local pricing in Canada for 69.99 CAD.
