The upcoming expansion for Hearthstone, Whispers of the Old Gods, has had it’s release date set for April 26th – not long at all.

This expansion introduces 132 brand new cards to use in your decks against friends and challenges in the Hearthstone Tavern. The new cards will features corrupted versions of cards we already know, minions of the old gods and even some will be of the old gods themselves such as C’thun, who back in vanilla World of Warcraft was one hell of a tough raid boss to defeat! The expansion also introduces the a new game mechanic known as Forbidden Cards, when a Forbidden Card is played it consumes all of your mana to power it’s effect, the more mana used the deadlier the attack.

Hearthstone’s third expansion will be available to purchase via the in-game shop on April 26 in the Americas region and on April 27 in the Europe and Asia regions for Windows and Mac PCs, iOS and Android Tablets, and mobile phones, and pre-purchased card bundles can be opened on the official release of Whispers of the Old Gods as well.

You still have some time before the expansions launch to pre-order 50 booster packets and receive an exclusive tenatacle wrapped card back for doing so! Even if you just purchase one booster packet upon launch, you will recieve a free Legendary C’Thun card and two Beckoners of Evil cards. Bargain!

Hearthstone have also revealed eight new cards ahead of the expansions launch, you can see them all below:
