Blizzard’s free-to-play collectible card game is getting a single-player adventure mode. The Curse of Naxxramas: A Hearthstone Adventure was unveiled at PAX East. Based on the Naxxramas location in World of Warcraft, players will card-flop their way through five wings of the dungeon, defeat bosses, and collect unique cards. The 30 new cards can be used in the multiplayer portion of Hearthstone once you’ve added them to your decks. Curse of Naxxramas will be played on a new game board and will be released in weekly installments.
Curse of Naxxramas will open its gates over the course of 5 weeks, opening wing by wing. The first wing of Curse of Naxxramas, The Arachnid Quarter, will be available free for all Hearthstone players. If you wish to venture further into Naxxramas to collect all of the new cards for your collection, each wing besides the Arachnid Quarter can be purchased with in-game gold or real money, whichever you prefer.
Final pricing and a release date have not been set yet for the later “wings” of the expansion, but Blizzard did confirm that it will launch on PC, Mac, and iPad simultaneously. Hearthstone is available for free through Battle.net.
