Blizzard Announces New ‘Hearthstone’ Expansion: Whispers of the Old Gods

Blizzard’s popular card game, Hearthstone, has a brand new expansion headed its way which will change the landscape of the game in a drastic manner.

Titled Whispers of the Old Gods, the newest expansion will bring 134 new cards along with the legendary power of C’Thun, N’Zoth, Yogg-Saron, and Y’Shaarj. New player don’t have to fret about obtaining gold to get the new cards as Blizzard will be giving everyone three Whispers of the Old Gods card packs. Included in the first pack opened will be the legendary C’Thun, and his loyal servant, Beckoner of Evil.

The god cards will include a new mechanic allowing them to grow stronger as you play their followers, no matter where the god card is – whether it be in play, your hand, or deck.

Alongside the release of Whispers of the Old Gods will be the release of Standard and Wild modes. Standard, the new rank system, will only allow cards from the recent two expansions to be used. All previous expansions will only be able to be played in the Wild mode where players can use and combination of cards. More details between Standard and Wild mode can be found on the Hearthstone website.

Much like the previous expansion, The Grand Tournament, Blizzard is allowing players to pre-order 50 packs of Whispers of the Old Gods for $49.99. Those that pre-order will also receive a custom card back.

Whispers of the Old Gods will be available by late April/early May 2016.
