Don your parkas and put together your ice puns, as a result of the subsequent Hearthstone growth is taking you to again to Icecrown in Knights of the Frozen Throne. The growth was introduced on developer Blizzard’s livestream from the Hearthstone World Championships in Shanghai earlier immediately.
Blizzard’sfirst set foot within the frigid northern wastes with The Grand Event card set in 2015, however relatively than specializing in the noble ren-faire crusaders and their medieval occasions enjoyable and video games, this growth focuses on the nefarious undead denizens of the Lich King.
The earlier growth, Journey to Un’Goro, was launched earlier in 2017 and launched new Quest playing cards that supplied highly effective playing cards in return for assembly sure targets inside a match towards an opponent. The brand new hotness this time round is in 9 legendary Hero playing cards — one for every hero class in Hearthstone — that remodel your Mages, Monks, Druids and different heroes into Dying Knights and grant them modified talents. Fingers crossed the hero-transforming playing cards are extra Jaraxxus and fewer Majordomo. Too quickly?
The opposite massive new mechanic is “Lifesteal,” which is precisely what it seems like. Deal harm, heal your self for that a lot.
The growth itself will include 135 playing cards and new single-player content material. Knights of the Frozen Throne’s sequence of free PVE missions pit gamers towards the Lich King and his minions. That is eight bosses throughout a prologue and two separate wings of the Lich King’s citadel. A kind of tasty new legendaries shall be awarded to gamers upon ending the prologue mission, too. The brand new playing cards shall be playable in Hearthstone’s Commonplace and Wild aggressive play modes..
The brand new growth is due out in August 2017 with the subsequent set of spoilers coming July 24. As with the earlier expansions, you may decide up a reduced bundle of 50 randomized packs and a novel card again in case you preorder. Personally, I am hoping that Shatter is lastly value taking part in.
