The confirmation of the eldritch expansion came during a special announcement that kicked off Hearthstone‘s Americas Winter Championship tournament.

The announcement came with a cinematic trailer and the news that the expansion will contain 134 new cards themed around the old gods, a collection of evil eldritch deities of Lovecraftian power from Warcraft lore; such as C’Thun, Yogg-Saron, Y’Shaarj, and N’Zoth .



Whispers of the Old Gods is scheduled for a late April or early May release, with card packs becoming available through the in-game Shop for either gold or real money at the same price as previous Hearthstone card packs.

As of March 14, players will be able to pre-purchase a 50-pack bundle of Whispers of the Old Gods card packs for $49.99 (USD) prior to the Expansion’s official release. As a bonus to players whom choose to do this, Blizzard will reward them with a random extra card from the new block.
