The new Hearthstone Kobolds and Catacombs cards release times confirmed
Having launched a new update for the game tonight, Blizzard have now confirmed the official Hearthstone Kobolds and Catacombs release times.
Like in the past, the development team are rolling out the new Hearthstone expansion cards at different times, to avoid major server problems.
This will mean that players in the United States will be the first to start playing tomorrow, while countries in Europe may have to wait until the early hours of December 8.
A message from the Hearthstone team explains: “The Tavern is packed with rowdy adventurers dying to do some dungeon delving as we prepare for the launch of Kobolds & Catacombs.
“We’re excited to deliver Hearthstone’s latest expansion as quickly and as smoothly as possible.
“The expansion will roll out on a region-by-region basis, beginning with the Americas.
“After we ensure that everything is running smoothly, we will then roll out the expansion to Asia, followed by the Europe region.”
NEW HEARTHSTONE KOBOLDS AND CATACOMBS EXPANSION CARDS BELOW:
Being last on the list will be pretty tough for fans hoping to get playing later today, however, there’s always the chance things go live earlier than reported.
As reported by Blizzard, these are the current estimates for the Kobolds & Catacombs release around the world:
Fans have seen Hearthstone expansion given predicted times, only to see them go live early due to smooth rollouts in North America.
“Those are the times we are hoping to have the expansion released by, could be earlier if things go well,” Hearthstone’s Ben Brode added.
And while the new cards will be the big bonus, fans will also get access to the new Dungeon Run mode.
This is a fun little addition which provides repeatable quests that offer more random gameplay.
And some of the new Hearthstone patch notes released with today’s update include some interesting new details for Dungeon Run rewards.
A Daily Quest that provides 1 classic card pack a day would go down very well with fans not looking to spend a heap on microtransactions.
For those eager to start their new card collections early, Blizzard are providing the usual Log in reward.
This will mean that after release, logging in will provide 3 Kobolds & Catacombs card packs and a random Legendary weapon card, for free.
As mentioned above, Blizzard are also adding three sequential one-time Dungeon Run quests, each one awarding one Kobolds & Catacombs card pack, for a total of three more card packs.
There’s also a Kobolds & Catacombs pre-purchase bundle available until 11:59 p.m. PST December 6, to purchase.
This bundle includes 50 card packs and the For the Hoard! card back.
