Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne, the upcoming expansion for Blizzard’s digital card game, will add 135 new cards to the game.
And in the time leading up to the expansion’s release in early-to-mid-August, we’ve been drip fed a sneak peek at some of those cards. Today, Blizzard has officially unveiled 52 of the 135 new cards arriving in Knights of the Frozen Throne.
As we’ve already learned, the expansion focuses around Death Knights, and will introduce a new Death Knight form for each of the existing classes in Hearthstone.
There’s also a new “Lifesteal” mechanic; any damage done by minions with the lifesteal keyword is restored to your heroes health. Every class will have access to lifestealing minions.
With that in mind, here are 52 of the 135 new cards coming in Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne.
Knights of the Frozen Throne is coming to all platforms that Hearthstone is available on, and Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs are currently winnable in Hearthstone’s Arena mode and purchasable with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone’s other card packs. Additionally, up until the expansion is released in August, players can pre-purchase Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs in a special 50-pack bundle, on any platform, for a one-time price of $49.99 (one purchase per account). Players who purchase this bundle will receive a unique themed card back from the Lord of the Scourge himself.
