Blizzard has announced, The Grand Tournament, the second expansion for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, is now live, and players around the world are invited to join in on the fun. This expansion brings over 130 knightly cards to the roundtable, along with exciting new game mechanics that will delight duelists and inspire creative new deck strategies.
This expansion presents duelists with powerful new tools for their arsenals, allowing them to motivate their brave champions through the Inspire mechanic or challenge an opponent to single combat in its most honorable form, the joust. Inspired minions, which are triggered by using a Hero Power, can grow in strength, restore health, and even call for reinforcements. Jousts are one-on-one contests between random minions drawn from each player’s deck. The stakes are high if the initiating player wins a joust, they’ll earn a substantial bonus.
The Grand Tournament is available now for Windows and Mac PCs, iOS and Android tablets, and mobile phones. Card packs can be purchased individually or in discounted bundles from the in-game Shop for gold or real-world currency (same pricing as all other Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft card packs).
Players now also have the chance to win The Grand Tournament card packs as rewards in Arena Mode, or craft cards from the expansion by using Arcane Dust, which is collected from disenchanting unwanted cards.
