Hearthstone's newest expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne, will take place in the frozen wastes of Northrend and feature Death Knight-inspired cards and mechanics when it arrives Aug. 10.

These include Hero cards which will turn the game's nine classes into Death Knights, a health-drain card effect called Lifesteal and eight free single-player missions inspired by the bosses of the Icecrown Citadel raid in World of Warcraft.

Hero Cards

A new card type similar to Lord Jaraxxus and Majordomo Executus' deathrattle, Hero cards will feature a Battlecry and give you armor in addition to changing your hero's portrait and giving them a new Hero Power.

For instance, Darkstalker Rexxar will change the Hunter's Hero Power to "Craft a custom Zombeast" which will let you Discover two Beast cards and combine them.

Lifesteal

Similar to Magic: the Gathering's Lifelink attribute, Hearthstone cards with the keyword "Lifesteal" will convert the damage they do to enemy heroes and minions to health for you.

According to Hearthstone game director Ben Brode in the expansion's announcement video, Deathrattle cards will also be prominent.

Single-player missions

While Blizzard will no longer be making full Adventure sets, single-player missions are returning to Hearthstone with Knights of the Frozen Throne with eight encounters featuring bosses from the Icecrown Citadel raid including Lord Marrowgar, Sindragosa and the Lich King himself.

After completing the first mission, players will receive a Legendary Death Knight Hero card. Finishing all the missions will then score you three free packs. Players who defeat the Lich King once with all nine classes will receive Prince Arthas Menethil, an alternate hero for the Paladin class.
