Knights of the Frozen Throne

Blizzard announced on Thursday that Knights of the Frozen Throne will be the next Hearthstone expansion. Frozen Throne will include 135 new cards including nine new legendary Hero Cards that transform players into fearsome Death Knights.

"In Knights of the Frozen Throne, players storm Icecrown Citadel, the Lich King’s frozen fortress, in pursuit of the forbidden might of runic magic. Rumor has it the Lich King seeks champions to imbue with the icy essence of undeath: players will soon receive his favor in the form of nine new legendary Hero Cards that, when played, transform Hearthstone’s heroes into fearsome Death Knights, granting frost-rimed armor and modified powers."

Players will also be able to challenge the Lich King and other bosses in the Icecrown Citadel to receive more rewards.

Hearthstone: Knights of the Frozen Throne will be available in August. Players will be able to win new cards in Arena mode or purchase them with in-game gold or real world money. 50-packs are available for pre-order on all platforms starting today.
