Blizzard Has Just Released Hearthstone Rise of Shadows Expansion

Hearthstone Rise of Shadows

A new expansion has just been released for Hearthstone and it is called Rise of Shadows. The update is free to play and is now the eleventh expansion that has come in the game. Rise of Shadows is offering the biggest story ever told in Hearthstone, plus giving out a bunch of cards.

The expansion sees the inclusion of the most baddest villains in Hearthstone as The League of E.V.I.L. is now live. This also means that the annual set rotation has happened, meaning cards from Knights of the Frozen Throne, Journey to Un’Goro, and Kobolds and Catacombs will no longer be eligible for play in the Standard Mode.

It also has a new set of quests available for players, but for limited time one. These allow you to earn up to 12 card packs. Of the 12 card packs, users can earn up to 5 Rise of Shadows packs, while the rest are from other currently playable sets.

President of Blizzard Entertainment, J. Allen Brack said,

With Rise of Shadows, we’re kicking off the biggest story we’ve ever told in Hearthstone and offering players a bunch of wicked new cards to get crafty with. This expansion also marks the beginning of a brand-new year of Hearthstone content—the Year of the Dragon—and we have a lot more in store for players in 2019.”

The Rise of Shadows expansion will be unlike any other previous expansion as it is going back to charging separately for its accompanying single player adventures. A solo part of this expansion will feature one free chapter that is due to launch a month from now. The chapter will also be followed by a series of additional adventures. These can be purchased one at a time for 100 in game gold or $20 for the set.
