As so it was decreed
, and so it has come to pass. The return of the Lich King. In card form! As part of Knights of the Frozen Throne, the new expansion for Blizzard's Hearthstone. In addition to bringing a sizable 135 new cards to the, err, fold, there's also nine new legendary Hero Cards that, when played, transform the heroes of Hearthstone into fearsome Death Knights. Ice cold.
Also, free missions!
Here's a peek at a couple of the new cards.
“The Lich King is one of our most iconic villains, and we’re excited to finally bring him—and his nine new Death Knights—to Hearthstone,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “Whether they’re ascending the Frozen Throne or duelling with friends at Fireside Gatherings, we can’t wait to see how players wield these deadly new cards.”
Plus, three free Knights of the Frozen Throne packs for everyone that logs in between now and November 1.
