I knew a Hearthstone announcement was coming, but I didn’t expect it to be this exciting. I’m always unsure what Hearthstone will do next to spruce up the game. This time, they’re taking it to a whole new level with Knights of the Frozen Throne! I can’t stop staring at the promotional image…
Here is what Blizzard had to say about the new expansion:
The Hearthstone team knew they wanted to explore the story of the Lich King and his horrifying minions, but how to visit such grim themes while preserving the game’s friendly and whimsical spirit? The answer was obvious: kill EVERYBODY! Well, not everybody. Just all nine Hearthstone heroes. . . In Hearthstone’s next expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne, we ask the question: what happens when the heroes fall from the light? When the Lich King raises them from the dead as Death Knights, what will they do with the immense and terrible powers he gives them? But who is this Lich King we speak of?
Take a look at the trailer below:
Pretty awesome, am I right? I couldn’t be more pumped about this expansion! Anything that involves Jaina Proudmoore is good with me, and the intensity of the trailer is so exciting. I can already sense the number of hours I’ll be bingeing.
You can read more details here and you can be sure that I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for more card announcements as the release date gets closer. Right now we don’t have an official release date, but they have said mid-August as a general time frame. So…now is the time to start saving up your gold to buy extra packs when the expansion comes out!
