Hearthstone Knights of the Frozen Throne Expansion is Near!
There have been many companies that tried to make big in the game industry but no one did it quite like Blizzard. It all started with the highly popular World of Warcraft MMO but things quickly escalated to something bigger. Blizzard wanted to stop being known as one trick pony and decided to create more games and all of them have been highly successful.
Taking in consideration the fact that World of Warcraft is one of the most popular games in the world, Blizzard’s decision to create a card game that’s based around it was quite genius. This is how Hearthstone came to be and it looks like Blizzard doesn’t want to stop there. Just like with World of Warcraft, the way in which Blizzard manages to keep games fun and relevant after so much time is through well-thought expansions. Well, the reason we are talking about Hearthstone today is because the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion is almost ready to come out.
Knights of the Frozen Throne Expansion
This major expansion is officially going to be available for purchase starting tomorrow (August 10th) and it has been priced at $50. The expansion contains 135 brand new cards which are spread through all classes but that’s not all. Blizzard also announced that Knights of the Frozen Throne will include a bunch of special new game mechanics such as Legendary Hero Cards which can transform into Death Knights and Lifesteal.
If this sounds familiar is because this update is similar to World of Warcraft’s “Wrath of the Lich King” expansion which made the Death Knight class available to everyone. Furthermore, the Lifesteal mechanic is more than surely going to be usable by Warlocks because it fits their spell range and lore. Also, worth mentioning is the fact that this Hearthstone update will also give players access to eight free missions which award them with a free random legendary card and other three normal card packs.
