BlizzCon 2015 – Hearthstone: The League of Explorers Artwork
The League of Explorers is the next Hearthstone Adventure. This thrilling collection of single-player missions will introduce players to heroic new characters and dastardly villains, dangerous temples, and deadly traps that will require innovative decks and strategies to conquer. Explorers who make it out victorious will be rewarded with all-new cards to add to their collections!
The League of Explorers follows four adventurers—Elise Starseeker, Reno Jackson, Sir Finley Mrrgglton, and Brann Bronzebeard—on their journey through the deepest jungles and hidden temples of Azeroth to recover an ancient artifact. These brave explorers will face many perils as they navigate through the Temple of Orsis, Uldaman, The Ruined City, and the Hall of Explorers on their most daring quest yet!
Lead on, Explorer!
The League of Explorers will launch on November 12, with locations opening on a weekly basis over the course of a month, and a one-week break in the middle so Blizzard can have a little pumpkin pie on the Thanksgiving holiday. Players will be able to explore exotic Warcraft landmarks, encounter fun new characters, battle challenging bosses, and of course, add more cards to their collections.
A total of 45 new cards are up for grabs, attainable by vanquishing the vile villains in each of the four locations and defeating all class challenges. Just like other cards in players’ collections, golden versions of these cards can be crafted if players want them to shine a little brighter.
New Keyword: Discover
When someone plays a card with the new Discover keyword, that player is presented with three random cards to choose from that can be used by their class.
As with the first two Hearthstone Adventures, class challenges will test players’ skills with each class in duels using a specific premade deck. Explorers who emerge victorious in each class challenge will be rewarded with a glimmering new League of Explorers-themed class card (one of the 45 new cards available in this Adventure).
Once all of the bosses in a wing have been thwarted, players can take on a far-more-challenging version of the location in Heroic Mode. These fights are immensely difficult, so bold strategies might be required to emerge victorious. Defeating Heroic Mode will grant the player a League of Explorers card back, perfect for showing off such an accomplishment!
After each location is released, the cards available in that wing will be added to the Arena mix for everyone to play with, regardless of whether they’ve played through the Adventure.
Getting Down to Business
Players ready to embark on this Adventure will be able to purchase access to the entire Adventure for $19.99 USD. Following pricing options outlined by previous Adventures, single wings will be available for 700 gold or $6.99 USD each, and discount-bundles will be available as well based on the number of individual locations the player has already purchased.
