Blizzard has officially revealed the new expansion for Hearthstone (the same one that got leaked yesterday), titled Knights of the Frozen Throne. As expected, the expansion takes us to the Icecrown Citadel, the home of the Lich King.
The expansion is coming with over 150 cards, including the Legendary new Hero cards that will transform your heroes into Death Knights. Along with the new Legendary Hero cards, there's a new keyword – Lifesteal. According to Blizzard, every class will have access to lifestealing minions. Every bit of damage your minions do will send health back to your hero.
The official description, as per Blizzard:
In Knights of the Frozen Throne, Azeroth’s greatest heroes are called to Northrend once again to battle the Lich King . . . in the tavern! Travel to the Icecrown Citadel, where they will encounter terrifying bear sharks, ridiculous geists, indigenous Tuskarr ice fishermen, and the mysterious influence of runic magic. With 135 icy new cards, the tavern is about to get a whole lot cooler! Mere mortals can pre-purchase a Knights of the Frozen Throne bundle of 50 cards packs for a special one-time price of $49.99. Preorders also come with a unique chilly card back for players to start growing their collection of Northrend trophies.
Knights of the Frozen Throne will give you the Death Knight Card for beating the prologue mission, offer a solo adventure and cards packs for defeating bosses. Knights of the Frozen Throne will be available in mid-August.
