Pre-purchase the limited-time Deluxe Adventure Bundle to unlock the complete experience and receive a random Legendary card from the Saviors of Uldum™ expansion as well as a League of Explorers-themed card back
SYDNEY, Australia—4 September, 2019, The Year of the Dragon—Millions ofplayers around the world havetested their grit exploring all the new cards in Saviors of Uldum, the latest expansion for Blizzard Entertainment’s smash-hit free-to-play digital card game Hearthstone®. On 18 September, Hearthstone’s epic year-long story line continues when the opening chapter of Tombs of Terror, the deadly Saviors of Uldum Solo Adventure, is unearthed free for everyone. Starting today, brave adventurers can pre-purchase the Tombs of Terror Deluxe Adventure Bundle and reap bonus rewards for securing passage on the entire harrowing expedition.
Tombs of Terror follows the events of the previous Solo Adventure, The Dalaran Heist. Players will step into the well-worn boots of the League of Explorers, Hearthstone’s heroic ensemble of adventuring archaeologists, and race through the cities and ruins of Uldum defeating unique foes to acquire all-new hero-specific signature treasures. These story-rich artifacts will “level up” our heroes before they face the four deadly Plague Lords—grueling multi-phase slugfests against persistent bosses who must be defeated across multiple runs.
Never fear, as no task is too daunting for the League of Explorers! Fully voice-acted and featuring a customisable loadout comprising unique Hero Powers and multiple deck options, Hearthstone’s first-ever dual-class heroes will present players with never-before-explored gameplay possibilities:
- Elise Starseeker, the Enlightened, ventures forth from her library armed with centuries of knowledge as well as the restorative magic of a Priest and the ferocity of a Druid.
- Dino-tamer Brann Bronzebeard unites the bravery and fortitude of a Warrior with the marksmanship and animal kinship of a Hunter.
- Sir Finley Mrrglton of the Sands, a sophisticated gentle-murloc, rallies a Paladin’s knightly valour with the tribal Shaman powers of his amphibious brethren.
- Reno Jackson, Relicologist, is a treasure-hunting Rogue with a heart of gold who has picked up enough mystic mumbo jumbo on his adventures to haphazardly sling Mage spells.
“We’ve always carried a torch for the classic dungeon crawl and with Tombs of Terror, we set out to create our deepest and most replayable Solo Adventure yet,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “With so many new deckbuilding options to unlock for the dual-class heroes and all of the signature treasures to acquire, we hope players love exploring the Tombs of Terror again and again.”
