  • New 'Hearthstone' expansion coming soon captures the spirit of classic fantasy

Dungeon Run adds an element of roguelikes to Hearthstone by setting out a challenge for players to defeat eight bosses with an ever-growing deck.

The debut trailer for Kobolds and Catacombs emphasized exploring dungeons and finding loot. In true rogue-like fashion, if you lose, the game is over and you have to restart from the beginning.

"It's essentially a Hearthstone roguelike and it's our most replayable single-player content ever", Brode explained.

Blizzard also stated that this new expansion will add one legendary weapon for every one of the game's nine classes.

Brazile said she investigated after hacked committee emails were published indicating the nomination process had been rigged. Asked if he would fire Sessions if the DOJ doesn't focus its investigative powers on Democrats, Trump said , "I don't know".

Announced at the opening ceremony of BlizzCon 2017, the Dungeon Run mode of Hearthstone will give players an all-new single-player experience.

Recruit is another mechanic in the expansion that simply pulls a random minion from a player's deck into play.

The most important feature of any collectible card game is how it sets itself apart from other, similar games, and more importantly, if the game's developers can continue to introduce new and unique mechanics. Keep an eye on BlizzCon 2017 and popular Hearthstone streamers in the coming weeks, as we're likely to see more and more card reveals and get a better picture of the upcoming meta as it draws near.

Marin the Fox's full text and stats was also revealed to be an 8-mana, 6/6 minion with Battlecry: "Summon a 0/8 Treasure Chest for your opponent".

Expect more information on the upcoming Kobolds and Catacombs during the Hearthstone deep dive panel later today. Destroying their opponent's deck completely, it will be interesting to see just which cards they get to replace them.

Finally, we learned that the big "class card" addition this expansion will be class-specific weapons, even for classes that don't normally have weapons.

The expansion also has you covered if you simply wants some new cards, too.

Some of the cards for the upcoming "Kobolds and Catacombs" set were shown off during the presentation by having the entire live audience play a bit of live dungeons and dragons through a dungeon littered with some of those new cards.
