Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne Expansion Detailed; Releases Next Month

The Heartstone Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion releases next month on all platforms.

Hearthstone is definitely one of Blizzard’s most successful IPs, and the studio recently announced the game’s upcoming expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne.

The Knights of the Frozen Throne is set to feature over 135 new cards, and players will embark on a journey to Northrend to confront Lick King. Finishing the expansion’s prologue mission will grant players a random legendary Death Knight Hero Card.

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.

The Heartstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion releases next month on PC, iOS and Android. Once we have a set release date for the expansion, we will update you as soon as we can.
