Blizzard announced today that Naxxramas will begin opening its gates starting with the Arachnid Quarter on July 22. The Naxxramas is part of the first Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft expansion being released for Windows, Mac and iOS. The adventure involves a floating necropolis with five wings that will be opened weekly. The Naxxramas is "home to a host of undead bosses ready to challenge worthy opponents," according to the original blog post.
The first level will be free to play during the month long launch event. The next four levels will then be available for 700 gold per wing or $6.99 USD per wing. Players will also be able to defeat the bosses Anub’Rekhan, Grand Widow Faerlina, and Maexxna to earn new cards to add to their collections and unlock "heroic mode" when they defeat all five levels. There will also be Curse of Naxxramas bundle packages for those who want to pre-order all five wings. You can learn more about the Curse of Naxxramas here.
