Hearthstone's next 135-card expansion, Kobolds and Catacombs, will release on December 7 with a classic dungeon-crawling RPG aesthetic, according to an announcement from game director Ben Brode at BlizzCon.

The expansion will introduce mechanics such as "Recruit," which summons a random minion from your deck, and Legendary weapons for each class. It will also add a new single player mode called "Dungeon Run" in which players will go through a randomly ordered eight-boss gauntlet with a deck of 10 random cards that you'll be able to upgrade.

While no specific release date was given, on Monday, Nov. 6, every Hearthstone player will get the new Legendary card Marin the Fox for free, with BlizzCon attendees and Virtual Ticket holders getting a Golden variant. Additionally, everyone will get one of nine Legendary weapons at launch.

Spellstones

At the Hearthstone — What's Next? panel, Blizzard announced that K&C will also introduce Spellstone cards. These spell cards get stronger as certain conditions are met while it's in your hand.
