Hearthstone, the long-running digital collectible card game from Blizzard, has announced its latest expansion called Scholomance Academy, the infamous school of necromancy found in Caer Darrow in World of Warcraft.
“We love introducing new twists and mechanics to Hearthstone, and Scholomance Academy is one of our most inventive expansions to date,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “This is Hearthstone at its best, and we can’t wait to see what players do with the new Dual-Class cards and all the other tools and tricks we’re adding.”
The new expansion, which goes live on August 7, 2020, features 135 all-new cards as well as 40 Dual-Class cards that can be used by two classes. Blizzard has already begun revealing some of the new cards that will be introduced in Scholomance Academy through their partnered streamers and will also hold a final card reveal livestream on July 30, 2020, at 1:00 AM PHT (GMT+8) over at the official Hearthstone Twitch channel (twitch.tv/playhearthstone).
Private pre-release Fireside Gatherings are also scheduled to take place throughout the weekend before the expansion’s release from August 1, 2020, 1:00 AM PHT (GMT+8) to August 4, 2020, 1:00 AM PHT (GMT+8).
Hearthstone players will be able to pre-purchase the Scholomance Academy Mega Bundle, which includes 85 Scholomance Academy card packs, or the Scholomance Academy Bundle that comes with 55 Scholomance Academy packs.
Hearthstone’s Scholomance Academy expansion is scheduled for release on August 7, 2020. More information on Scholomance Academy can be found on the official website.
