On December 8th, Hearthstone players will be heading deep into the unexplored underground realm in the latest expansion entitled Kobolds & Catacombs. These areas will be inhabited by monsters, traps and treasures never before seen, bringing a whole new element to fans of the popular digital card game.
The expansion brings a number of new pieces of content, including Dungeon Runs. This offers free single-player content including 48 different encounters, as well as decks that grow in power as you battle your way through the catacombs. Players can also expect to see 135 new cards, a new Keyword with Recruit, as well as new card types such as Spellstones and Unidentified Items.
Also, a random Legendary Weapon card, as well as three Kobolds & Catacombs card packs will be offered to players for free, which will be granted by simply logging in after the expansion’s release. There’s also three sequential one-time Dungeon Run quests, each of which will award a card pack based on the new expansion, giving you a total of three additional free packs.
To make sure that you are prepared for every situation possible, you’ll be able to fill your bags up with 50 Kobolds & Catacombs card packs, which retail at £44.99. Those who choose to pre-purchase will be given the gleaming FOR THE HOARD! card back to add to their growing collection. The card back and packs will be received once the pre-purchase has been processed, and will have the chance to break the seal on the card packs on December 8th.
