Blizzard has announced the next expansion for the incredibly popular collectable card game Hearthstone, and fans do not have long to wait until it drops; Knights of the Frozen Throne will be released in August.

This new addition to the game will see 135 brand new cards added to the collection, and they look set to shake up the current meta of the game dramatically.

The setting of Knights of the Frozen Throne will excite fans who know their World of Warcraft lore- players will be taking on the infamous Lich King in his iconic Icecrown Citadel. In addition to the new cards, this is the first expansion that Blizzard has released since they announced major changes to the future of Hearthstone content that will be coupled with single-player missions, which is a new format of the old “adventures” that players used to get.

The expansion will introduce a few new mechanics, including (Legendary) cards that transform your hero into an undead-versions of themselves called “Death Knights”, complete with new hero powers.

You can expect some more details and card reveals later on this month, but in the mean time you can check out the announcement trailer below:
