Hearthstone's Kobolds and Catacombs Expansion Out Next Week

Hearthstone's Kobolds and Catacombs Expansion Out Next Week

Blizzard announced today that the expansion will arrive on December 7 in North America, with a release for Europe coming a day later. We spoke to game designer Peter Whalen and art director Ben Thompson about the expansion, its best cards, and Hearthstone's plans for the future. Plenty of Rogue cards are low cost and can enable Elven Minstrel's combination ability. There will also be new card mechanics including Spellstones, Unidentified Items and the first Legendary weapons. These cards allow the player to upgrade the effect. As a bonus, you'll also receive the For the Hoard! card.

Dungeon Runs are a new mode with roguelike elements.

Given that this is the third full expansion of the year that contains 135 new cards you'd be forgiven for feeling a bit hard-pressed to fork out the €49.99 (~R809) Blizzard is asking for a 50 pack pre-order.

Tompson explained that releasing Adventures were holding back what some of the game had to offer in terms of new cards being added to the meta, and for those that never completed the Adventures fully, this prevented them from getting those cards. "Play Mode" features traditional head-to-head battles, with players facing off for a chance to increase their medal ranking and earn card packs along the way.

Finally, Blizzard has given away a free pack every week for the last two weeks during the weekly Tavern Brawl.
