New Hearthstone Expansion Kobolds & Catacombs' Release Date Announced, And It's Soon

Posted November 30, 2017

Deceptively simple in design but epically engaging, Hearthstone will be instantly accessible to players regardless of their familiarity with Warcraft or collectible card games.

The expansion introduces 135 new cards, as well as a free single player choose your own adventure style dungeon run mode available to all players. With each victory players will add additional cards to their deck. But if you lose just once, you start from the beginning with a fresh deck. For those looking to purchase the expansion pack before December 8, they can pre purchase it within a 50 pack bundle for $49.99 on Battle.net or Blizzard's game shop. There are a total of 48 possible encounters in Dungeon Runs and three special events in the mode.

After release, anyone logging into Hearthstone will receive a random Legendary Weapon and 3 Kobolds & Catacombs card packs. Players will receive one free Legendary Weapon the first time they log in to Hearthstone after Kobolds & Catacombs has launched.

The next card in Hearthstone's Kobolds and Catacombs expansion is called Elven Minstrel. In addition, players can score three more card packs by completing three "sequential one-time Dungeon Run quests". Starting November 6, this pre-purchase offer will also be available in-app for iOS and Android players for 49.99 United States dollars, and will reflect local pricing in Canada for 69.99 CAD.
