You like frost spells, frost wyverns, and death knights? Well, Blizzard has answered your prayers with this chilling new announcement.
The company announced the latest expansion to Hearthstone called Knights of the Frozen Throne. This expansion introduces 135 new cards, as well as new Legendary Hero Cards that, when played, transforms your current hero into Death Knights. These Hero cards will give players modified hero powers that bestow them with other powerful effects as well as lifesteal.
The expansion also comes with free missions to all players, which includes a prologue, two wings of three bosses, and a final showdown against The Lich King. After completing the prologue mission, players will receive a random legendary Hero Card that will transform one of their heroes into a class-specific Death Knight.
In addition, players will earn a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack for each wing they complete and an additional pack when they finally claim the Frozen Throne for themselves.
Knights of the Frozen Throne will be released in August, but a bundle of 50 cards is now available for pre-purchase for US$49.99 (S$69). This bundle also comes with a cool chilly card back for players to start growing their collection of Northrend trophies. So until it’s out, stay frosty, card floppers.
