Up until now, the next Hearthstone expansion Kobolds and Catacombs has only had a nebulous release window of "before the end of 2017", which has been leaving an ever-smaller window of time for it to drop as the year rushes to a close. But we now have a date! The expansion will release December 8th, so just over a week away.
The expansion introduces 135 new cards, as well as a free single player choose your own adventure style dungeon run mode available to all players. The expansion also adds a handful of new abilities including Recruit, which pulls a minion from your deck, and the game's first legendary weapons.
As a bit of a card gaming addict, I know I'll be playing a fair amount of this at Christmas: I can see it now, huddled up with a warm cider by the fire. Apologies to my family and friends, enjoy the turkey, I've got trading cards to obsess over.
