New HearthStone Game Mode Announced


Blizzard has announced a new single-player game mode coming to HearthStone: Heroes of Warcraft at PAX East 2014 on Friday.

The new adventure mode, called Curse of Naxxramas, contains five “unique wings” of the dungeon that players will progress through by battling AI opponents. Players will be able to gain new cards by defeating bosses throughout the dungeons as well as earn new hero power cards. Players will earn these new items by defeating bosses such as the “oversized arachnid Maexxna, the fungal horror Loatheb and the shambling abomination Patchwerk”, among others.

A total of 30 new cards will be added to the game via the update including the five you can check out in the photos below.

With each completion of a dungeon wing, players will be guaranteed to receive a new Legendary card for use in your decks. The cards will also appear in Arena even if you haven’t unlocked them for custom deck use.

Each new wing will be rolled out one by one over a five-week period. The first released wing, The Arachnid Quarter, will be released free to all HearthStone players. Each subsequent wing of the dungeon will have to be unlocked using earned in-game gold or real money. 

No release date of the new mode has been announced, but Blizzard confirmed that the update will roll out on PC, Mac and iPad simultaneously.
