Blizzard Entertainment won’t let its online collectible card video game remain with old content. Instead, the company will update the production with a new Frozen Throne expansion. By extension, its faithful community of players will get the chance to unlock a new massive wave of cards with additional characters and powers based on the lore of the Warcraft series.
Hearthstone Senior Game Designer Matt Place Confirmed the Existence of Two New Heroes
Blizzard Entertainment is ready to release brand new content for Hearthstone. The upcoming expansion is closer than people think, with only a few days left until August 10. The company promises 135 new cards with their own special powers and combinations. On top of that, Hearthstone Senior Game Designer Matt Place divulged the introduction of not one, but two new Death Knight Heroes.
The company is also preparing a special deal for those enthusiasts who want to get access to the new in-game pack right from the beginning. Those who want to achieve these cards through their own skills will have to wait a little longer. Their quest is to log in each week and complete a special Arena mission where they can earn an additional card from the Knight of the Frozen Throne collection.
The Frozen Throne Expansion Will Come with New Cards, Keyword, and Legendary Hero Cards
As for lore, the new expansion is inspired by the Lich King and the Frozen Throne from Warcraft universe. The update brings in a completely new power called “Lifesteal.” Each card with this keyword on it will offer the player the same amount of healing points as the number of damage point it inflicts on the enemy.
Another brand new feature will be Legendary Hero cards. When users summon these special arsenals on the board, they will turn the hero into its Death Knight version. From this point on, players will basically control another character with its own look and special abilities.
