Hearthstone's Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion official artwork

If you were hoping Blizzard will add the much-anticipated Death Knight hero as a part of the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion, I'm afraid you're in for a bit of a disappointment, but they are bringing in the next best thing. What I mean by this is that there will be a Legendary card that transforms your basic hero into a much more evil, and naturally, much more powerful variant!

In total you can expect to see 135 new cards from the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion, many of which actually seem viable even on first glance. You can get a good look at about 78/135 of the cards, including some of the above mentioned 'Death Knights', by visiting the official website. Unfortunately, Blizzard still refuses to put tokens alongside cards, so for some of them you're just going to have to wait until the expansion arrives before you can figure out what they actually do.

As is tradition, Blizzard is also offering a one-per-player pre-order package of 50 card packs for $50, which also gives you the exclusive Frostmourne card back. Whether its worth it or not, that I'll leave for you to decide, but I personally prefer getting my packs through arena/standard play. Its a bit slower and definitely less flashy, but it helps keep me from burning out too quickly. 

That little bit of rambling aside, the Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion will be coming to a Hearthstone near you on August 10th. If you're interested in learning a few more details I'll leave you with the official announcement video featuring Ben Brode and Jason Chayes. Enjoy!
