Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is soon getting an expansion pack with 134 brand new cards that are sure to take the gamers into a new era. The pack goes by the name “Whispers of the Old Gods” and will be launch in the US on April 26, while Europa and Asia have to wait one extra day.

Back in March, we told you that Hearthstone: Whispers of the Old Gods would be launched this spring. Now it’s official, it’s time to play your cards to sling spells, summon incredible creatures and command the heroes of Warcraft in epic strategy duels. The Old Gods are eager to meet you. They are benevolent entities of supreme power who have come to show you how fun this game can be if you simply lay on the couch and draw your magical deck.

Hearthstone: Whispers of the Old Gods will be available to purchase via the in-game shop on April 26 in the Americas region and on April 27 in Europe and Asia. There are also pre-purchased card bundles that can be opened on the official release of Whispers of the Old Gods. The game can be played on Windows and Mac PCs, iOS and Android Tablets as well as on mobile phones.

Although there is only a one day difference between the launch date in the US and in Europe, many players from European countries complained about it:

Thanks for screwing EU again.

Yes, players from all over the world are eager to play the new game but a one day at a time launch actually is the best decision Blizzard could take. If ever there are issues in the first region, the company has time to fix the bugs before the second region launch.  Moreover, if too many players hit the shop at the same time, servers could block.

Blizzard will also offer 13 free packs to players soon after the game is launched:

  • 3 packs after logging in when the Old Gods launches.
  • 5 packs after players win 2 games in Standard. (Quest)
  • Another 5 packs after winning 7 more games in Standard. (Quest also)

Make sure you are on the game’s page on April 26 to dive into this amazing fantasy world.
