Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft getting single-player adventure in new expansion pack


Blizzard will be adding a single-player adventure mode to its first mobile game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, in a future expansion pack. Known as "Curse of Naxxramas," the pack has been unveiled at PAX East and will launch simultaneously across iPad, Mac and Windows with a release date yet to be announced.

The ancient necropolis Naxxramas, a base of operations for the powerful archlich Kel’Thuzad and his plague-bearing undead host, comes to Hearthstone in a single-player Adventure that anyone can undertake. Progress through each of the five unique wings of the dungeon and gain new cards for your Hearthstone collection by defeating the iconic bosses you’ll face along the way: the oversized arachnid Maexxna, the fungal horror Loatheb, and the shambling abomination Patchwerk are just a few of the horrors awaiting you. Each boss has its own unique cards and hero powers at its disposal to challenge even the most seasoned of card-slinging adventurers.

Besides a single-player mode, Curse of Naxxramas will also bring new cards and a new game board to Hearthstone, and the content will roll out over a 5-week period. We're told to stay tuned for more, including when we can get our hot little hands on it. Was single-player something you were missing?

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft getting single-player adventure in new expansion pack


This will be good so long as it supports offline play. Right now even the practice matches against the AI innkeeper require an internet connection.

Being an avid world of Warcraft player this expansion will contain very familiar characters etc. I do look forward to a single player aspect. Blizzard has referenced iPhone versions but I think they will wait for possibly larger iPhones. I'll play it a lot if available for the iPhone.
