Hearthstone, the world's most played digital card game, is releasing a new expansion , "Altarak of the Rage," on December 8!
The theme of the new expansion is a battle between two camps, and players will be able to choose which camp they belong to. The new expansion also seems to entertain with a background storyline, with characters from cards included in previous expansions and mini-sets in their evolved forms.
Since this is an expansion pack, a very large variety of cards will be included.
We can't wait to see if the new cards will make existing decks even stronger, or if they will give birth to completely new decks!
