Hearthstone’s next expansion Knights of the Frozen Throne will be released on August 10, Blizzard announced today.
The expansion has players claim the Lich King’s Frozen Throne by traveling to Northend and attacking the Icecrown Citadel.
It introduces 135 new cards to the game and nine legendary Hero Cards that, after being played, transform the game’s heroes into Death Knights. A new power called Lifesteal will also be featured, which heals players for the amount of damage they’ve dealt.
Knights of the Frozen Throne also brings with it eight free missions which allow players to explore the Icecrown Citadel and engage in various boss battles, including a showdown with the Lich King himself.
