Play that funky music, mage boy. Blizzard Entertainment announced the newest single-player Adventure to digital card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. One Night in Karazhan is a psychedelic disco party hosted by human mage Medivh.
The “biggest party of the year” takes place in Medivh’s magical tower Karazhan. Medivh was a major player in Warcraft lore (and featured in the film). Karazhan was introduced as a high-level dungeon in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Sadly it did not feature any sick parties.
Like previous Hearthstone Adventure packs, One Night in Karazhan will include a free prologue mission to introduce you to the new cards and theme. Purchasing all four wings of the Adventure will cost $19.99. You can also purchase them individually as well as with in-game gold.
Players will receive two new cards just for playing, Enchanted Raven and Firelands Portal. Portal cards are the new focus in this Adventure. These spell cards summon random minions to the board. In total, the expansion includes 45 new cards.
The new Adventure also includes new class challenges for each class, and a new game board and card back. Purchasing the Adventure pack gives you all 45 cards, unlike the larger expansion packs where you have to obtain the cards by buying packs with either in-game or real currency.
Currently Hearthstone switches between releasing full 100+ card Expansions and smaller, theme-based Adventure packs. The previous Expansion, Whisper of the Old Gods, was released earlier this Spring. It included 134 new cards.
One Night in Karazhan will open its first wing on August 11. A new wing opens every week after that, to keep you coming back to party every day.
