When you can open your Kobolds & Catacombs card packs

A couple of UI changes make Hearthstone a bit more user friendly, too.

Blizzard has uploaded a new Hearthstone patch ahead of the Kobolds and Catacombs expansion. Ever-wary of greedy adventurers' plots to liberate their hoards, the kobolds have lured bad monsters and laid deadly traps to help protect them.

K&C introduces a new mechanic, Recruit, which summons a minion from your deck and drops them into play. Just note that the livestream is two hours long but it does show off the new single player Dungeon Run mode as well.


Kobolds and Catacombs is nearly here. Complete Dungeon Run with all nine classes will reward players with a Candle King cardback.

"Kobolds & Catacombs harkens back to the type of old-school fantasy-gaming experience that many of us at Blizzard and in the community grew up on", said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment.

You won't be able to access any of the new Kobolds and Catacombs cards until December 7, but the update is there. Hearthstone players should be able to log in and access the expansion immediately, provided they downloaded the 10.0 update that went up on Wednesday.
