Prepare for Battle as Hearthstone Opens the Grand Tournament Today

By   /   Aug 24, 2015

The latest expansion for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft has begun, with over 130 cards being added to the table. The update will also bring some new game mechanics to inspire new strategies for players.

Taking the players to the frost-covered continent of Northrend, the heroes of the Argent Crusade are once more holding their prestigious tournament. Selecting the bravest and mightiest to do battle this is your chance to show your skills off.

New mechanics come to the game in the form of inspire and joust. Inspired minions triggered by a Hero Power can have raised strength, restored health and in some cases call for reinforcements. Jousts feature one-on-one contests between random minions drawn from a player’s deck. Winning the battle gives a big bonus of the winner.

“With the new Inspire and Joust mechanics, and over 130 new cards to play with, The Grand Tournament brings a fun medieval-tournament vibe to Hearthstone,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We can’t wait to see what players come up with now that they have their hands full with tons of new deck and strategy options.”

The Grand Tournament add-on is available now for Windows, Mac, and iOS and Android devices. Card packs can also be purchased or in discounted bundles from the in-game shop. As an added bonus, players can also win Grand Tournament card packs as rewards in the Arena Mode, or craft cards from the expansion by using Arcane Dust.

With this being a much anticipated expansion to the popular card game I’m sure plenty of players entering battle as soon as they can get access to The Grand Tournament.
