Since its release, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has been continuously growing. We’ve seen the addition of two solo adventures, an expansion set, and new heroes within the year and a half since its launch. Now it has been announced that a brand new expansion set will be heading our way this August.
Entitled “The Grand Tournament,” the set will contain 132 new cards, a new board, and even a new effect type. I’ve included a gallery below that contains images of the newly announced cards and game board. The new effect type, or “minion keyword,” that is releasing with this set is called “Inspire.” Inspire is activated after your Hero Power is used, giving you another way to change the tide of battle.
For those of you who may want to get a head start, a special bundle that includes 50 Grand Tournament packs and a new card back will be available for pre-purchase starting next week for $49.99. The official Grand Tournament site is also allowing you to vote for what new cards you would like to see revealed next. Just follow this link to cast your ballot!
The new expansion looks like it will be bringing a lot of changes to Hearthstone’s gameplay; it will be interesting to see how the game continues to evolve throughout its life span.
