Hearthstone's Latest Expansion Announced: Kobolds and Catacombs

Adjust Comment Print

Players must defeat eight random bosses out of almost fifty possible encounters, while collecting loot along the way to reinforce their decks for the fight ahead.

Focusing on loot and the idea of dungeon exploring, the 135-card set will bring some incredible cards to the game, with just a few revealed so far. You get permanent rewards, but each time you fail to beat an encounter, you have to start the dungeon from scratch and lose all the cards you gain during the dungeon.

"It's essentially a Hearthstone roguelike and it's our most replayable single-player content ever", Brode explained. To celebrate the all players who log in to Hearthstone from Monday will get the card Marin The Fox for free. So while you're earing permanent cards to use outside the dungeon, you use whatever you are given and whatever you earn one each run. Blizzard also announced that players can obtain treasures in the Dungeon Run that contains powerful cards.

Recruit is another mechanic in the expansion that simply pulls a random minion from a player's deck into play. Those daring enough to courageous the hazards and monstrosities of this subterranean realm will have ample chance to stuff their bags with awe-inspiring treasures in the form of 135 wondrous new cards. As they progress, they'll bolster their decks with cards looted from defeated bosses, including some immensely powerful treasures exclusive to Dungeon Runs. A new hunter spell called Crushing Walls will destroy the left- and right-most minions of your opponent.

Yum Brands posted third-quarter earnings and revenue that beat analyst forecasts, due in part to Pizza Hut's improved performance. Whatever the reasons for it, the punishment was swift-Papa John's shares fell 8.5% yesterday (Nov. 1), closing at $62.26.

Throughout BlizzCon and leading up to the release of Kobolds and Catacombs in December, more cards will be revealed, peeling back the curtain on what to expect when we venture into the tunnels of the kobolds.

The expansion also has you covered if you simply wants some new cards, too. They also showed off a legendary weapon called Dragon Soul, which summons a dragon after casting three spells in a tour.

Kobolds and Catacombs also features unidentified magic items, which are cards that offer mysterious bonus effects when drawn.
