It’s confirmed! Hearthstone’s newest expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne, will release on Thursday, August 10th.
Knights of the Frozen Throne focuses around Death Knights, and will introduce a new Death Knight form for each of the existing classes in Hearthstone. Additionally, the expansion adds the 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.
The upcoming expansion will also introduce 135 frosty new cards to the game (52 of them revealed so far). With that in mind, you still have time to purchase 50 Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs for $49.99. Pre-purchasing now will also unlock the chilling Frostmourne card back for your collection.
And lastly, with Frost Festival in full swing, there’s still time to complete the special Arena quest to be rewarded with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack that you can open when the expansion arrives next week.
