Expansion

Everything we know about Hearthstone’s Knights of the Frozen Throne Hearthstone’s sixth expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne, comes with 135 new cards and free solo missions against iconic bosses from Icecrown Citadel such as Lord Marrowgar, Professor Putricide, and the Lich King. While we don’t have a specific release date yet, it will be available in August and you can hit the expansion running with...

Hearthstone’s latest expansion is Knights of the Frozen Throne {PB}To help us beat the heat of summer, Hearthstone’s next expansion will be taking us up north to Northrend. Say hello to the Knights of the Frozen Throne! During the HCT livestream from Shanghai today, Game Director Ben Brode and Production Director Jason Chayes posed an intriguing question. What happens when heroes fall? When the Lich King...




Next Hearthstone expansion announcement during HCT Spring Championships tonight It's been about three months since Journey to Un'goro came out. If Blizzard's release schedule remains consistent, that means we should be expecting a new adventure some time soon.

Should the next expansion keep Artifacts? I get asked about once a Queue if we’re going to keep leveling our Artifacts in the next expansion. My answer has always been no. They’re a Legion mechanic and once the expansion is over they’ll go in our banks. Maybe we’ll take them out every so often just for funsies. But then I get...

What does a new expansion have to include? The Gamescom speculation continues. Some folks are even speculating that the next World of Warcraft expansion will be announced there, much as Legion was two years ago. I have no idea if that will be true, but if it is, I think we’re all wildly curious as to what it will contain. Will it be...

What could Blizzard do with the Diablo franchise? Since we’ve heard nothing about a new Diablo 3 expansion (and the Necromancer is clearly not tied to any new expansion) I’ve found myself musing a lot about what I’d do next if I was in charge of Diablo as a property. Of course, no one’s surprised that I want a sandbox RPG out of...




Could Diablo stay viable without an expansion? It’s been more than three years since Reaper of Souls, and there’s been no sign of a new expansion for Diablo 3. We see season play continuing, and the Necromancer will soon be playable, which brings us the question — does Diablo 3 need an expansion at all? Can it continue as it is? After...

Archimonde casts Nether Tear
Are you tired of demons yet? The Burning Legion. Destroyers of worlds beyond counting. Endless. A threat to all that lives. Frankly, I’m tired of them. I mean, they’re great bad guys, don’t get me wrong. And I think Legion has generally been an excellent content packed expansion all told. But man, we’ve been fighting demons since about the half way...

Hints of the next Hearthstone expansion in the Gadgetzan Gazette The official Hearthstone site has been publishing excerpts from the Gadgetzan Gazette — see Vol. 32 #7, Vol. 32 #8, and Vol. 32 #9 —  presumably teasing an upcoming Hearthstone expansion reveal. But just what does the Gazette tell us? To start, issue 7 opens with a headline of Gadgetzan’s first ever unbreakable bank! That’s not a challenge (or a dare)...

Breakfast Topic: Dreaming of a Diablo 3 expansion Here we are, four years after the launch of Diablo 3, and I’m still playing the game. I just bought the Ultimate Evil Edition for my Xbox One, even. There’s a simplicity and purity to playing Diablo — it lacks the customization of games like WoW and really, the gameplay is incredibly stripped down in...

Hearthstone’s Whispers of the Old Gods release date likely April 26 While no release date has officially been announced for Whispers of the Old Gods, Battle.net’s store has been updated with a warning for users trying to purchase the Curse of Naxxramas adventure pack. The warning states the cards from the Naxxramas set will only be playable in the Wild play format beginning April 26. April...

She's already dressed for the dance, really.
Totem Talk: How the Legion PVP split could help Enhancement (or hurt a lot) After more than a decade, PVP and PVE are breaking up in World of Warcraft. I’m not sure how I feel about that; on the one hand, I’ll be the first person to point out that trying to balance everything for PVP and PVE at the same time has resulted in loads of weird and...

Diablo 3
Know Your Lore: Speculation and the future of Diablo 3 So we had a big announcement at Gamescom this month, and we know now that World of Warcraft is getting a big new expansion, Legion. We did some speculating on what might be in that expansion, and some of our predictions were borne out. But what about Diablo 3? We’ve seen a lot of information...
