Eager fans of Blizzard's free-to-play digital card game will be happy to hear that the first wing of the single-player Naxxramas content is now open and available to all, free of charge.
The Arachnid Quarter, the first of the Adventure’s five sinister wings, is now available — free for a limited time — to all Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft players who step into the necropolis during the Curse of Naxxramas launch event, taking place now through early September.
Curse of Naxxramas pits solo Hearthstone players against a series of iconic, necrotic bosses, each with its own unique powers and cards to command. Heroes will need to draw on all of their wits and deck-building prowess to prevail over Naxxramas’s horrors, earning a total of 30 new cards along the way that can be used in regular play — including a new Legendary card for completing each wing.
“Curse of Naxxramas introduces a whole new way to play Hearthstone,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Players of all skill levels will find plenty to challenge them within Naxxramas’s haunted corridors—and plenty of new options for their decks with the new cards we’re adding.”
