Blizzard’s F2P card game Hearthstone is getting a new expansion this December and it’s called Kobolds and Catacombs.
The next expansion is Kobolds and Catacombs will feature all the thematic trappings of a classic dungeon crawl. The update will also bring nine new legendary weapons (one for each class). More cards are set to be revealed during a panel later today but some new cards were shown off during the presentation. 135 new cards in total are being added to the game.
A new single-player experience is also being added, Blizzard called it the Dungeon Run. An 8 card boss deck is shuffled and players will have to defeat 8 random bosses and bosses’ cards can be added to your deck when they are defeated. A loss on any part of the run will force the player to restart in true rogue-like style. The new mode will be completely free to play.
If you’re really into Hearthstone and have a virtual ticket, watch out for more info during the panels and check the official site. Here’s a trailer:
