Oh for heaven’s sake, I’ve only just got my decks together for Rise of Shadows! Oh well, I’ve got five weeks to play around with them until Blizzard releases Saviors of Uldum, the brand-new Hearthstone expansion.

This time, in what I believe is a first for the franchise, this Hearthstone expansion will follow on the story from the previous one. After the League of E.V.I.L. successfully commandeered the magical floating city of Dalaran, they put phase two of their plan into action and went about gaining control of the magical forces deep within Uldum. 

To aid you on your journey, one card type is making a comeback, the quest card. You automatically draw this card type in your initial hand and it gives you an overpowered card as a reward for completing certain criteria, a mechanic that hasn’t been seen since 2017’s Un’Goro.  We’ve also had a glimpse at a set of cards called plague cards, where five out of the nine classes gets to mess with the board in devastating ways, as well as a new keyword, Reborn, where minions come back to life with one health after being killed.

The adventure begins August 6 on PC, IOS and Android. Dig up more information at www.saviorsofuldum.com.
