Kobolds and Catacombs is Hearthstone's next add-on

We haven't seen numerous new cards for Kobolds and Catacombs just yet, but we were introduced to a brand new mechanics: Recruit. "It's full of monsters, treasures, and traps; it's reminiscent of a simpler time that reminds you of, say, being at a table, gaming with your buddies, and delving deep into dark dungeons".

There's also special weapons for each class being added, in a first for the game.

One of the new cards is the majorly powerful Warlock legendary Azari, the Dovourer. We'll make sure to update you as more info on Dungeon Run becomes available. This expansion's new keyword was also shown off. Cards with the Recruit ability will pull a minion from your deck and put it right into the battlefield.

There's also a new free single-player experience which, says Blizzard, is like nothing that's come to Hearthstone before. As they progress, they'll bolster their decks with cards looted from defeated bosses, including some immensely powerful treasures exclusive to Dungeon Runs.

Part of that throwback feeling comes from the bounty of new cards, and part of it comes from the new Dungeon Run mode.

Blizzard has revealed more details about Hearthstone's newest expansion that arrives next month. It requires players to choose a hero and use a deck only consisting of ten cards against a variety of random bosses. If you lose you have to start over with a novice deck from your class of choice. But because you're playing against AI opponents, the Hearthstone team was able to test out some insane cards in Dungeon Run. If you log into Hearthstone starting Monday, you'll get the card for free.

Kobolds & Catacombs will add new cards and mechanics to Hearthstone, just all like other previous expansions to the digital card game.

One of the biggest new card features will be legendary weapons for all nine classes, including the Dragon Soul for the priest, which, after you cast three spells in a turn will summon a 5/5 Dragon.

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.
