Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne Expansion Announced

Blizzard has announced the latest expansion to be released for Hearthstone, Knights of the Frozen Throne, which will introduce 135 new cards to the game.

Set to be released in August, Knights of the Frozen Throne will see players travel to Northend in an effort to attack the Lich King's Icecrown Citadel and claim the titular Frozen Throne. The new expansion also brings with it nine legendary Hero Cards that, after being played, transform the game's heroes into Death Knights, who possess frost-tinged armor and altered powers. The new power Lifesteal will also be introduced, healing players for damage dealt.

Knights of the Frozen Throne will also introduce free missions available to all players, allowing them to explore the Icecrown Citadel and engage in battles with bosses like Professor Putricide and Sindragosa. Completing the new prologue mission will earn heroes a random legendary Death Knight Hero card.

Knights of the Frozen Throne card parks are now available to pre-purchase in 50-pack bundles, limited to one per account, for $49.99. Buying the special bundle will come with a unique themed card back.
