Blizzard has announced the launch date for the next big expansion for Hearthstone: Kobolds and Catacombs, and it’s coming much quicker than you’d expect.
Hearthstone‘s Kobolds and Catacombs expansion is set to launch on December 8 letting players dive into this new realm packed with monsters, traps, and of course, great treasures. The expansion, which was announced at Blizzcon earlier this year, is set to bring with it a number of new cards and gameplay features.
The biggest new addition to come with the new Hearthstone expansion is Dungeon Runs, new, free single-player content that’ll offer 48 different possible encounters and decks that grow in power as players fight their way through the Catacombs.
In total there’ll be 135 new cards and a new Keyword: Recruit. There’ll also be new card types called Spellstones and Unidentified Items. As an added bonus, players who login after release will receive a random Legendary Weapon card and three Kobolds and Catacombs card packs for free.
Players can currently pre-purchase 50 Kobolds and Catacombs card packs for £44.99. Those who do, will also receive a “For the Hoard!” card back for their collection.
