Posted by | January 13, 2020 | Mobile, News, PC, Video | No Comments

Hearthstone’s latest expansion, Descent of Dragons, is getting a new Solo Adventure later this month. Galakrond’s Awakening features two single player campaigns where players tackle a series of boss battles using pre-built decks, starting January 21.

Galakrond’s Awakening represents the end of the year-long story line that played throughout Hearthstone’s Year of the Dragon expansions in 2019. In the first campaign, players are part of the League of EVIL working to resurrect Galakrond the dragon. In the second, they’ll join the League of Explorers to thwart the bad guys and save the world.

“The Year of the Dragon has been a dynamic and exciting one for Hearthstone, with a series of meta-shifting expansions, an ambitious year-long story, and a rapid cadence of new features and updates that have fundamentally evolved the game,” said J. Allen Brack, president, Blizzard Entertainment. “Galakrond’s Awakening will bring the story we’ve been telling in the game all year to an epic and fitting conclusion, and we can’t wait to share it with everyone.”

The Solo Adventure format finally returns in Galakron’d Awakening, as players battle through powerful bosses to earn new cards as rewards. These cards can be added to Standard and Wild decks. Upon completing both campaign stories, players will unlock a harder Heroic mode, where they can use their own custom decks from any collection.

Galakrond’s Awakening will release in four waves beginning Jan. 21. Each wave, or installment, will include two chapters, one from each campaign, for a total of eight chapters. Each installment can be purchased for $6.99, or 700 in-game gold, or you can purchase the full bundle for $19.99. Pre-purchase the bundle for a Golden Classic Pack.

Players can experience the first chapter of the League of EVIL’s campaign, Battle of the Frozen Coast, completely free, when it launches Jan. 21.

Hearthstone is available on PC (Battle.net – Win, Mac) as well as mobile (iOS, Android).
