Blizzard Reveals Hearthstone: Kobolds & Catacombs with New Trailer

New 'Hearthstone' expansion coming soon captures the spirit of classic fantasy Hearthstone Gets a New Kobolds & Catacombs Expansion, Along with a New Dungeon Run Mode

Dungeon Run pits players against eight random bosses, starting with ten cards.

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. Plus, if you were lucky enough to either visit BlizzCon or get a Virtual Ticket, you will gain a special gold edition Kobolds & Catacombs card.

First, there's Marin the Fox, a legendary card that every player will receive for free as long as they do not forget to log in to Hearthstone on Monday, Nov. 6.

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. It sounds a bit like combining the typical boss encounters from adventures (and more recently, the free single payer content that comes with expansions) combined with an arena run and sprinkled with a loot system.

Each year, there's new Hearthstone expansions that increase the amount of cards available in the online collectible card game. Marin is a legendary card that requires players to kill a high health minion in order to earn a very powerful card. Introducing new cards gives Hearthstone players new things to play with and helps keep the meta from going too stale. These legendary weapons will have incredibly powerful effects-the one we saw during the presentation, the priest weapon Dragon Soul, will summon a 5/5 dragon every time the priest casts three spells. It is called the Kobolds And #Catacombs, which will add new cards and a new single-player mode.

Marin the Fox's full text and stats was also revealed to be an 8-mana, 6/6 minion with Battlecry: "Summon a 0/8 Treasure Chest for your opponent".

A direct throwback to Tunnels and Trolls, the single player PnP RPG from way back when and recently revived in MetaArcade, Kobolds and Catacombs launch next month. The main attraction is the addition of new legendary weapons for each of the game's nine heroes (even those who didn't have weapons before). Also coming is a new keyword, recruit.
