Blizzard is inviting all duelists to compete in their newest Hearthstone expansion, The Grand Tournament. Watch the musical introduction video for The Grand Tournament below.
The time has come to dust off your tablet as Blizzard’s newest Hearthstone expansion invites you to the icy lands of Northrend. The tundra was once home to the grand tournaments of the Argent Crusade. Gathering from all over the mythical world of Azeroth, champions would challenge the undead legions to battle.
Since the defeat of the undead frozen leader Arthas, their presence in Northrend has decreased dramatically. Over the years this resulted in less heroic jousting and more petty squabbles in the form of trading cards between the champions.
Players who accept the invitation to join this tournament will have access to 132 new cards and a new keyword called Inspire. The card packs can be purchased with real money or in-game gold individually, or in a pre-purchase bundle which contains 50 card packs and is currently retailed at $49.99. The new Keyword on the other hand, is a special ability unique to each card that is activated whenever a players hero ability is activated.
In addition to more fun adventures, the expansion is equipped with an all new battlefield and Knights of different classes including Merlons, pirates and more. Blizzard has currently set up an official webpage to entice fans until it’s release this August on PC, iOS and Android devices.
