Blizzard Announced Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne Expansion

Blizzard Entertainment announced the next Heartstone expansion: Knights of the Frozen Throne during the HCT Spring Championships livestream. Today, Blizzard sent the following press release via email to all Hearthstone players.

Pry 135 new cards from the Lich King’s icy grasp in upcoming expansion for Blizzard Entertainment’s internationally acclaimed digital card game. Transform heroes into Death Knights and wield powerful new abilities with legendary Hero Cards. Claim the Frozen Throne in a series of free missions.


IRVINE, Calif. — July 6, 2017 — For those in the service of the Lich King, death is only the beginning. . . . Blizzard Entertainment today announced Knights of the Frozen Throne™, the new expansion coming this August to Hearthstone®, Blizzard’s smash-hit digital card game. Adventurers will soon travel to Northrend, where they’ll confront the Lich King and be raised as Death Knights, wielding otherworldly powers and stealing life from their opponents, and ultimately ascending Icecrown Citadel to claim the Frozen Throne—and 135 frosty new cards—for themselves.

In Knights of the Frozen Throne, players storm Icecrown Citadel, the Lich King’s frozen fortress, in pursuit of the forbidden might of runic magic. Rumor has it the Lich King seeks champions to imbue with the icy essence of undeath: players will soon receive his favor in the form of nine new legendary Hero Cards that, when played, transform Hearthstone’s heroes into fearsome Death Knights, granting frost-rimed armor and modified powers. The Lich King has also decided to bestow players with a new power from beyond the grave: “Lifesteal,” a chilling new keyword, heals players for damage dealt.

Those not content with merely serving at the Lich King’s behest can challenge him directly in a series of free missions that Knights of the Frozen Throne will offer to all players. Step into Icecrown Citadel in the prologue mission, then venture through the citadel’s two wings as you fight iconic bosses like Professor Putricide and Sindragosa on your way to a final epic showdown against The Lich King himself. After completing the prologue mission, players will receive a random legendary Death Knight Hero Card.

Coming to Windows® and Mac® PCs; Windows, iOS, and Android™ tablets; and mobile phones, Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs will be 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. Starting today and up until the expansion is released, players eager for an audience with the Lich King 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). Those who do so will be granted a unique themed card back from the Lord of the Scourge himself.

Next Hearthstone Expansion announcement on July 6

Blizzard Entertainment plans to unveil details about the next Hearthstone expansion at the HCT Spring Championships on July 6 at 7:00 pm PDT. Make sure to watch the livestream at the Hearthstone Twitch channel.

The expansion was sorta announced back on February, at least its approximate launch date: Quarter 3. From what you can see below, long before Journey to Un’Goro was announced, the graphic below showed a hint… jungle flora. So the Expansion I flora graphic offered a hint about Un’Goro, since that’s the only location with such wild foliage.

Therefore, if one is to use the Expansion II graphic as a hint of sorts:

1. Glowing runes
2. blue hues

The image evokes three memories: Mages of Dalaran, Dragons (particularly the Aspect of Magic Malygos and the Blue Dragonflight), or Wrath of the Lich King. These are the three known for glowing magical runes.

Hearthstone: No Duplicate Legendary Cards Soon

Hearthstone Game Director Ben Brode announced Hearthstone will soon have significant changes in the next expansion, and one of them is no more duplicates of Legendary Cards when opening card packs.

Additionally, there will be a special limited-time promotion where you get more bang for your buck when buying card packs.

Original Pack Bundles

Special Pack Bundles

7 packs +2 packs = 9 packs total
15 packs +5 packs = 20 packs total
40 packs +12 packs = 52 packs total
60 packs* +18 packs = 78 packs total


Hearthstone Ads (May 2017)
