Blizzard confirmed the next expansion for its popular online card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. The Grand Tournament expansion will add over 130 new cards and is coming this August to PC, Windows, iOS, and Android tablets, and mobile phones.
The Grand Tournament transports brave Hearthstone duelists to the frigid continent of Northrend, where the heroes of the Argent Crusade once held a tournament to coax out Azeroth’s greatest fighters—and prepare them to battle the undead legions at the icy heart of the realm. The Lich King’s evil has been vanquished, but that doesn’t mean the jousting has to stop . . . the competitive atmosphere’s just a lot more playful (and a bit warmer) than it used to be.
When rallying new recruits to their cause, players will notice that some of these knights possess an all-new keyword—Inspire. Minions with the Inspire keyword have a special ability that can only be activated by using the Hero’s Power. This means that Hero Powers now play an even greater role in strategy, as they can be used to inspire some minions to reach their full potential in battle by calling reinforcements, restoring health, and much more! Players will want to use these minions wisely to give their play the perfect boost!
The Grand Tournament card packs in a special 50-pack bundle, on any platform, for a one-time price of £34,99 (PC/Mac/Android)/ £39,99 (iOS), (one purchase per account) up until release.
