During Blizzcon 2019, the developers of Hearthstone took the stage to announce their new expansion for the popular digital card game and it’s called Descent of Dragons. Take a look here.
According to the description:
“In Rise of Shadows the League of E.V.I.L. set a master plan into motion: a daring theft of the floating city of Dalaran. That plot further thickened in swirling sands and dusty tombs when ancient plagues were unleashed and the Saviors of Uldum stood up to take down the forces of evil. Now, it’s time for this epic story to reach its conclusion. And it’s time… for some dragons. Introducing Hearthstone’s newest expansion: Descent of Dragons!”
The dragons will bring their own set of abilities through invocations which you can activate if an invocatable card is on the field or in you hand. Around 135 new cards will be introduced with this expansion and it will be pre-orderable along with the new Battlegrounds gamemode coming in November 5th.
Welcome to Hearthstone: Battlegrounds, the brand-new auto-battling game mode that introduces a fresh, strategic, 8-player experience to Hearthstone. In Battlegrounds, you’ll take on the role of a familiar Hero straight out of Hearthstone history, craft a powerful board of recruited Minions, and face-off in an action-packed series of duels until a single winner is crowned!
Battlegrounds is hitting the Tavern on November 5 for a week of Early Access where players who have acquired the Descent of Dragons pre-purchase bundle, BlizzCon Attendees, or BlizzCon Virtual Ticket holders will be able to access this new game mode. After this early access phase ends at 10 a.m. on November 12, we’ll enter Open Beta where everyone will be able to hop into Bob’s Tavern to try their hand at being the best of the Battleground Heroes!
Well it seems like Hearthstone is going to get a lot of attention sometime soon, so be sure to get ready before the dragons come.
