The end is finally near, after roughly 7 months since Hearthstone ventured into Open Beta the CCG’s first expansion, Curse of Naxxramas will begin opening its wings starting next Tuesday, July 22nd. According to the official blog post from Blizzard, the single player expansion will go live in North America for both PC, Mac and Ipad on the 22nd. Meanwhile, European players will be able to play starting on the 23rd.
As a reminder, those who log into Hearthstone during the course of the month long Curse of Naxxramas launch event will pickup the first of the expansion’s five wings, the Arachnid Quarter, for free. Subsequently, Blizzard will release the remaining four wings once a week, with each individual wing going for 700 gold a piece, or $7 USD. Additional discounts will be given to players who opt to purchase multiple wings with real currency.
Curse of Naxxramas will add around 30 new cards to Hearthstone, many of which posses special Death Rattle abilities which proc once the minion dies. Quite fitting seeing as Naxxramas is depicted in World of Warcraft as an ancient Necropolis filled with a variety of undead creatures and cultists.
