Coming this August: EVERYBODY DIES!
Next month, Hearthstone players will be journeying back to Northrend and Icecrown Citadel in “Knights of the Frozen Throne”.
Knights of the Frozen Throne will be launching with tons of cool stuff:
- 135 new cards
- New card type: Hero Cards – Each of the original Hearthstone heroes will be getting a Death Knight hero card. These cards cost mana, have a battlecry, grant armor, and replace your hero power.
- New keyword: Lifesteal – When a card with lifesteal deals damage (not just minions, spells can have lifesteal too), it restores health to your hero equal to the damage dealt.
- An all new adventure – Now called “missions”, and now totally free, players will be able to venture into Icecrown Citadel, fight their way through three wings of bosses, and eventually battle the Lich King himself! Each wing of the adventure will reward 1 KotFT card pack, and completing the adventure’s prologue will grant the player a random legendary hero card.
- New pre-order deal and card back – From now until release, you can pre-order 50 packs for $50. Ordering this special bundle will also net you the Frostmourne card back.
A few cards were announced with the expansion, but I’ll be covering all the spoilers in a separate article.
You can pre-order the 50-pack bundle here.

And you can feel free to check out the original announcement video below. Trust me, it’s worth a watch. Ben Brode and Jason Chayes are awesome.
