Hearthstone’s up coming enlargement, announced tonight, is termed Knights of the Frozen Throne.
It will take the game’s nine heroes, kills them then recasts them as undead Demise Knights, raised from the grave by the Lich King himself:
Each Demise Knight was the moment a mighty hero of Azeroth—but right after the Lich King raises a hero from the lifeless, they gain unimaginable power from beyond the grave. In Knights of the Frozen Throne, each individual of Hearthstone’s nine heroes has embraced the Lich King’s darkish ability to serve him as a Legendary Demise Knight Hero card! Regardless of their transformation, they have not fallen absolutely underneath the Lich King’s sway, so it’ll be up to you to decide how to wield the great talents at their command.
Hero cards are an fully new card type that are neither spell, minion, nor weapon. When performed, each individual Demise Knight Hero card replaces your hero, casts a Battlecry, dons some hefty armor, AND offers a new Hero Electricity. Whilst each individual Demise Knight hero is different, they all present prospects that can transform the way you play Hearthstone.
Knights of the Frozen Throne is out in “early August”.
