BlizzCon 2017: Hearthstone Announces New Expansion, Kobolds & Catacombs

by Christine Marie Attardo

Calling all fans of Blizzard. Chances are, if you’re not lucky enough to be in Anaheim this weekend, you’re glued to your computer screen waiting for more news. Now, the BlizzCon 2017 excitement continues as we get a bit of Hearthstone news!

Yep, it’s time for another expansion. What makes it even better is, we are going to get even more new content, just as we did in the last expansion. The new expansion is called Kobolds & Catacombs and it’s set to release this December.

Here’s what Blizzard had to say:

Secreted away in Kobolds & Catacombs await many wonders, including:

  • Dungeon Runs: FREE repeatable single-player experience where everything you need is provided!
  • Legendary weapon collectible cards for ALL nine classes
  • A new keyword: Recruit
  • In total, 135 new cards to add to your collection!”

What’s a dungeon run, you ask? It’s a single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and extra special treasures to enhance your deck! Sounds pretty cool to me.

Check out the trailer below and keep your eyes peeled for an official release date.
