The annual convention for all things from Blizzard Entertainment – BlizzCon kicked off earlier today in Anaheim and a few announcements were made. In addition to the WORLD OF WARCRAFT news, there was news about an expansion for their digital card game. HEARTHSTONE: KOBOLDS & CATACOMBS is set for release this December for Windows and Mac PCs as well as for Windows, iOS, and Android tablets and mobile phones.
More information as well as the trailer are below courtesy of their press release.
LONG-LOST TREASURES AWAIT HEARTHSTONE® PLAYERS IN KOBOLDS & CATACOMBS™
Explore Azeroth’s deepest dungeons and collect 135 new cards in the next expansion for Blizzard Entertainment’s internationally acclaimed digital card game coming in December
Delve into the new single-player Dungeon Run mode for a relentless and endlessly replayable challenge that’s completely free to all players—no prebuilt decks required
The bravest and most foolhardy adventurers will need all the help they can get as they delve into Hearthstone’s free new single-player game mode: Dungeon Runs! Coming with the launch of Kobolds & Catacombs, Dungeon Runs will send Hearthstone players on challenging, high-stakes subterranean adventures inspired by the classic fantasy dungeon crawl. Players start with a novice deck from their class of choice and face a series of progressively stronger foes, randomly selected from a huge pool of unique bosses. As they progress, they’ll bolster their decks with cards looted from defeated bosses, including some immensely powerful treasures exclusive to Dungeon Runs. Heroes should plunder with caution, however, because losing a single battle will spell the end of their Dungeon Run.
Coming this December to Windows® and Mac® PCs; Windows, iOS, and Android™ tablets; and mobile phones, Kobolds & Catacombs card packs will be winnable in Hearthstone’s Arena mode and players can purchase them with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone’s other card packs. Starting today and up until the expansion is released, eager treasure seekers can pre-purchase Kobolds & Catacombs card packs in a special 50-pack bundle for a one-time price of 49.99 USD (one purchase per account) on Battle.net and in Blizzard’s game shop, and receive the sparkling, jewel-encrusted “For the Hoard!” card back for free! Starting November 6, this pre-purchase offer will also be available in-app for iOS and Android players for 49.99 USD, and will reflect local pricing in Canada for 69.99 CAD.
