Blizzard has announced a new expansion for its popular card game Hearthstone to be released on 3rd August.
The new expansion is called United in Stormwind and it brings 135 all-new cards to the game inspired by the titular gleaming city. These new cards include new Questline cards for Hearthstone that provide a look into the backstories of each mercenary character that was introduced earlier this year.
Each match begins with these Questline cards in your hand. Completing any of the challenges associated with them rewards you with powerful in-game effects, and finishing the whole lot will also allow the Mercenary to fight by your side as a powerful Legendary Minion.
The new expansion for Hearthstone also adds a new keyword called Tradeable, which is where cards with this attribute can get new situational effects to swap them for another card in your hand for the cost of one mana point.
