Will Hearthstone have as much success in the frozen northlands as World of Warcraft did with Wrath? We’re about to find out, as last night Blizzard announced Knights of the Frozen Throne is the name of the card battler’s next big expansion.

“In Knights of the Frozen Throne™, Azeroth’s greatest heroes are called to Northrend once again to battle the Lich King . . . in the tavern! Blizzard Entertainment’s newest Hearthstone® expansion brings players to the Icecrown Citadel, where they will encounter terrifying bear sharks, ridiculous geists, indigenous Tuskarr ice fishermen, and the mysterious influence of runic magic. With 135 icy new cards, the tavern is about to get a whole lot cooler!”

Among the highlights of the expansion are new legendary hero cards, the Lifesteal keyword, and free Northrend-themed missions (“including a prologue, two wings of three bosses, and a final epic showdown against The Lich King himself”). The whole shebang launches in August, alongside a prepurchase 50-card bundle that by itself costs $49.99. The new pics and trailer are down below!

But no new class? Would be the perfect time to bring in the Death Knight.

I’m distracted by the fact that these were the two most interesting people Blizzard could find to host the damn video.

I just want the aggro warrior pirate build to disappear already. Season after season of seeing this build is getting rather annoying. The needs they did to the Buccaneer was not enough to curb the use.

Lifesteal looks like it can help in dealing with Pirate Warrior
