Hearthstone – March of the Lich King Expansion Announced

Frostmourne hungers… Blizzard’s CCG Hearthstone is in for a new expansion titled March of the Lich King. The update will be launching worldwide on December 6th, bringing forth a bunch of content, 203 new cards, new Death Knight class, new Undead minion type and more.

“The Lich King returns to Hearthstone, leading his Undead army and the new Death Knight class in an all-out assault on the elven city of Silvermoon! The Blood Elves won’t go down easily; they are as thirsty for combat as they are for the magic of the Sunwell that they draw power from.”

Here are some of the new features you can expect to find in the expansion:

  • New Class: Death Knight – For two mana, summon a 1/1 Ghoul with Charge that dies at the end of your turn! That Ghoul does double-duty, because Death Knights gain a Corpse whenever a friendly minion dies. They can then spend those Corpses to power up their cards!
  • New Minion Types: Undead and Dual-Type Minions – Undead minions will appear in Neutral and in the classes that have aligned with the Lich King. Some minions will have two minion types. For Undead minions, this might be a second type to represent what they were before they became Undead.
  • Returning Keyword: Reborn – The first time a Reborn minion dies, it is resummoned with 1 Health remaining—the perfect keyword for representing pesky Undead minions.
  • New Keyword: Manathirst – Cards with Manathirst get more powerful once you reach a specified amount of mana. No mana needs to be consumed for the bonus effect to be triggered.
