Hearthstone Murder at Castle Nathria Features
Here’s what players can expect from the upcoming expansion:
New Card Type: Location
For the first time ever, specific locations are now represented in-game! Locations are a temporary addition to your board, playable just like minions, only as advantageous buffs instead. Drop them onto the board and activate their effects wisely, keeping careful watch on the one-turn cooldown and diminishing durability to execute your strategy. Locations are a permanent addition to Hearthstone.
New Keyword: Infuse
Anima, the soul currency of the Shadowlands, is here to Infuse your gameplay. Cards with this keyword will drink in the lost anima when a friendly minion dies and transform into mightier versions of themselves. Hold these cards in your hand until they’re fully infused—a transformation signified by completely new artwork.
Get curious about ten new Legendary suspects! With one minion per class, there won’t be any shortage of potential motives to unearth. Additionally, every player will be awarded Prince Renathal upon login, a neutral Legendary who will give your hero ten more health and adds ten more cards to your deck.
