A second expansion hits popular Blizzard CCG Hearthstone next month.
Like Goblins vs Gnomes before it, The Grand Tournament is a large card expansion that will bring in 132 new cards, along with a new Inspire mechanic.
Minions with the Inspire ability will activate whenever you use your hero power, and there are more cards that interact with your hero power overall.
For example, one minion will add a random spell to your hand every time you trigger your Hero Power, while another gains +1 attack.
The setting, as per Blizzard:
When the Lich King and his undead Scourge threatened the world, the Argent Crusade called upon Azeroth’s mightiest heroes to prove their mettle in a magnificent tournament. Knights of all races flocked to Northrend, vying for glory in epic battles against fearsome monsters. Though the Lich King’s evil has been vanquished, the Grand Tournament continues… the competitive atmosphere’s just a bit more playful than it used to be.
The Grand Tournament will be available to purchase using either gold or real money.
