Remember back in July when Blizzard announced that they had a new expansion for Hearthstone in the pipeline called Knights of the Frozen Throne? They didn’t give us a specific release date except for some time in August, but now we have that info.
We finally have a date to mark on our calendars. Blizzard has confirmed that the expansion’s release is August 10th.
If you are just hearing about the expansion for the first time, it looks like Knights of the Frozen Throne will see Blizzard revisit the continent of Northrend again. The expansion is free to download, but players who want access to the expansion’s cards will have to purchase booster packs.
These booster packs are priced at $50 for 50 packs. That will get you a ton of cards to use in the game.
If you pre-purchase, you will also be able to unlock a Frostmourne card back that you can add to your collection. The expansion will introduce 135 new cards, new hero cards, and a new Lifesteal mechanic.
If you want to pre-purchase the boosters, there is still time to do it. This new expansion should be fun and will bring some new twists and turns to the game.
