Hearthstone’s Kobolds & Catacombs expansion launches in early December

Blizzard has announced that Kobolds & Catacombs, the newest expansion for its hit digital CCG Hearthstone, will launch on December 7.

Naturally, Kobolds & Catacombs will add a plethora of new cards to the game, 135 in total. The new cards include two new types: Spellstones and Unidentified Items. Also included in the expansion is a new single-player mode called ‘Dungeon Run’ which allows players to work their way through 48 different dungeon-delving scenarios that aim to conjure the same thrill as a Dungeons & Dragons encounter.

As with previous Hearthstone expansions, Blizzard is currently running a special promotion where players can pre-order 50 Kobolds & Catacombs card packs for $49.99, and the pre-order offer also includes an exclusive ‘For the Hoard’ card pack. Of course, if you’d rather not make such a large financial investment, you’ll also be able to earn three Kobolds & Catacombs card packs and a random legendary weapon card just for logging in once the expansion is live.
