'Hearthstone' Gets New 'Kobolds & Catacombs' Expansion, Single-Player Mode

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

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. Players will be able to venture into the dark, winding dungeons deep beneath Azeroth in search of ancient, legendary treasures.

One of the new cards is the majorly powerful Warlock legendary Azari, the Dovourer.

This new single-player campaign is certainly the most intriguing yet. When you "recruit", you pull a minion straight from your deck and put it on the battlefield.

We'll see more cards as we approach the expansion, but the main focus of the presentation (and the thing that got me the most excited) was the reveal of a new, single-player mode called Dungeon Run. Once players play all the Seal cards, they can summon Azari, the Devourer, a demon that destroys your opponent's deck.

Players must defeat each boss to progress in the mode.

USA economy rebounds from slump by adding 261000 jobs
Moving against expectations, average hourly (private sector) earnings fell by 0.04 percent - or roughly one cent - to $26.53. That was the largest gain since July previous year , but was below economists' expectations for an increase of 310,000 jobs.

"It's essentially a Hearthstone roguelike", Brode said. Players will have to defeat eight random bosses, earning new cards for the deck as they go. You get permanent rewards, but each time you fail to beat an encounter, you have to start the dungeon from scratch and lose all the cards you gain during the dungeon.

Blizzard also has a special treat for BlizzCon 2017 attendees and virtual ticket holders: a golden version of the new "Marin the Fox" card that officially debuts on November 6.

Brode also revealed a new keyword for the expansion: Recruit. Players will have to bash open the chests to get at the loot, but it will be well worth it, since what lies inside might just be some of the most broken and overpowered cards in any CCG ever. Kobolds and Catacombs will bring legendary weapon cards for all nine classes, even if they have never had weapons before.

Inspired by tabletop fantasy games about looting dungeons, Kobolds and Catacombs has cards all about the threats and treasures associated with being a fantasy adventurer, looting unexplored cave systems.
