Blizzard announces new Hearthstone expansion pack Kobolds and Catacombs

New 'Hearthstone' expansion coming soon captures the spirit of classic fantasy

Among the new cards in Kobolds & Catacombs are Spellstones. "It's full of monsters, treasures, and traps; it's reminiscent of a simpler time that reminds you of, say, being at a table, gaming with your buddies, and delving deep into dark dungeons". In addition, the expansion will give each playable class a legendary weapon.

Up until the expansion is released, eager treasure seekers can pre-purchase Kobolds & Catacombs card packs in a special 50-pack bundle for a one-time price of 49.99 Dollars (one purchase per account) on Battle.net and in Blizzard's game shop, and receive a sparkling, jewel-encrusted "For the Hoard!" card back for free. Losing a single battle however will send a player right back to the start of their dungeon journey, destroying their deck and forcing them to restart. It will also introduce a new keyword - Recruit - that will allows players to pull a minion from their deck and put it into the battlefield. As they progress, cards looted from defeated bosses will be added to the deck along with treasures exclusive to Dungeon Runs. But, weapons aren't the only broken cards in the expansion, as players will also be able to use three different unidentified item cards.

Former DNC chair Donna Brazile tells critics to "go to hell"
The Sanders' campaign later signed its own joint fundraising agreement with the DNC, but did not use it. Bernie Sanders , I-Vt., unfairly during the primaries. "We're moving forward", Perez insisted to CNBC.

We'll see more cards as we approach the expansion, but the main focus of the presentation (and the thing that got me the most excited) was the reveal of a new, single-player mode called Dungeon Run. This mode is all about fighting bosses and running through a gauntlet. If you lose you have to start over with a novice deck from your class of choice.

Kobolds & Catacombs card packs will be winnable in Hearthstone's Arena mode and players can purchase them with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone's other card packs. This is the reason why Blizzard implemented the cards in the Dungeon Run only as it is overpowered. Previously, only select classes could equip weapons, but there's now going to be at least one new weapon for each class in this expansion, each with a unique effect for that class.

There's been no word on Kobolds and Catacombs official release date, but Ben Brode stated that it will be available sometime "next month".

Victoria has lowest unemployment rate in Canada, StatsCan says
