Blizzard is running a new video series to promote Journey to Un’Goro, the new expansion pack inbound for Hearthstone early next month.
The first episode of “Wonders of Un’Goro” features Professor George H. Doyle who warns would-be adventurers of venturing into the crater unprepared.
All sort of primal beings reside within the lush jungles of Un’Goro, kept safe from the outside world by the surrounding sheer cliffs. As such, there are great dangers lying in wait for all who enter.
Blizzard plans to release a new episode in the series every week, leading to the release of the expansion pack. While the first episode is mostly a humorous take on the dangers of the crater, it does offer a small teaser for the new Paladin Quest reward card called Galvadon, obtained from completing “the last Kaleidosaur Quest”.
Quests are Legendary cards that can be added to a deck, and will always appear in the opening hand with a one-mana cost. Once played, the player must fulfill certain conditions to complete the quest. Doing so will summon an extremely powerful card with great rewards.
Until now, Blizzard only revealed one quest card for the upcoming expansion. “Awaken the Makers” requires a player to summon seven minions with Deathrattles. The reward for doing so is “Amara, Warden of Hope,” who sets your hero’s health to 40 and boasts 8-8 for just five mana.
Hearthstone: Journey to Un’Goro will release in early April and feature 135 new cards in total. Pre-orders have begun and interested individuals can pay $49.99 to attain 50 Journey to Un’Goro card packs.
Blizzard will not be revealing any more cards until March 17. During this time, the developer will be explaining how the expansion will usher the game into a new direction.
Last week, the developer announced that it would be increasing the pricing of Hearthstone purchases for Europe later this month. However, the increased pricing will not affect the pre-orders of Journey to Un’Goro. It should be noted that once the expansion is released, its pricing will be updated in the store to reflect the new changes.
