“Whispers of the Old Gods adds an exciting new set of creepy, corrupted cards to Hearthstone,” Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment, said. “We can’t wait to see how creative players are with the ancient evil of the Old Gods in their hands.”
The expansion introduces 134 new cards to the game including the legendary Old Gods: C’Thun, N’Zoth, Yogg-Saron, and Y’Shaarj.
All players who log in during the expansion’s first week will be gifted three free Whispers of the Old Gods packs, which are guaranteed to contain the legendary Old God C’Thun and two Beckoner of Evil cards.
