Just when we thought we'd have enough Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft content to play with, Blizzard just went and upped the ante.
During a recent live stream hosted by the company, Hearthstone's game designer Ben Brode confirmed that a new expansion will make its way to the popular PC and mobile game this August. On top of that, we won't have to wait long to get a first look at the new expansion, as a live broadcast will take place during the HCT Spring Championship, starting on July 6th at 7:00 PM PDT.
The game, which has managed to recently pass over 70 million active players, continues to have a huge amount of popularity, and this new expansion will no doubt keep that going, as players will likely be able to get their hands on some new cards, as well as other bonuses.
During the livestream, Brode also made note that Missions will be added to the game for the first time. These will work in a similar manner to the Adventure expansions, he noted, and will provide more details on what to expect in terms of the direction of the new expansion. What's more, more Missions will be added as content is continuously added to the game, though more details weren't given at the time of the stream.
He did note, however, that the Missions will be provided free of charge, so all players can enjoy them, even if they aren't paying for content within the game. So that's good news.
An upcoming Hearthstone patch will also be minimizing the appearances of Vicious Fledgling by 50 percent in Arena drafts, which will serve as a relief to some players considering how powerful he was becoming in matches. There's no word on when the new patch will be available, but it will likely release at the same time as the expansion next month.
We'll bring you details as the new content is revealed, and give you an idea of what you hardcore Hearthstone players can expect from it. Hopefully, we'll see some new challenges from it!
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is available now for PC and mobile devices.
