Blizzard announces new Hearthstone expansion pack Kobolds and Catacombs

Arriving with the launch of Kobolds & Catacombs, Dungeon Runs will send Hearthstone players on challenging adventures inspired by the classic fantasy dungeon crawl.

The debut trailer for Kobolds and Catacombs emphasized exploring dungeons and finding loot. If you lose you have to start over with a novice deck from your class of choice.

"It's essentially a Hearthstone roguelike", Brode said. In fact, all nine classes are getting legendary weapons, even if they don't typically use them.

Up until the expansion is released, eager treasure seekers can pre-purchase Kobolds & Catacombs card packs in a special 50-pack bundle for a one-time price of 49.99 Dollars (one purchase per account) on and in Blizzard's game shop, and receive a sparkling, jewel-encrusted "For the Hoard!" card back for free.

In spirit, Dungeon Run plays like a rogue-like dungeon crawler, with players earning loot as they progress and becoming stronger to defeat stronger enemies. This golden card is available only during BlizzCon; you won't be able to get it in a card pack or craft it later. Once players play all the Seal cards, they can summon Azari, the Devourer, a demon that destroys your opponent's deck. Those daring enough to courageous the hazards and monstrosities of this subterranean realm will have ample chance to stuff their bags with awe-inspiring treasures in the form of 135 wondrous new cards.

Among the new cards in Kobolds & Catacombs are Spellstones.

Marin the Fox's full text and stats was also revealed to be an 8-mana, 6/6 minion with Battlecry: "Summon a 0/8 Treasure Chest for your opponent". This expansion's new keyword was also shown off. Cards with the Recruit ability will pull a minion from your deck and put it right into the battlefield.

There's also special weapons for each class being added, in a first for the game.

Expect more information on the upcoming Kobolds and Catacombs during the Hearthstone deep dive panel later today. The Priest weapon was revealed to be called "Dragonsoul" that summons a 5/5 dragon for every three spells cast.
