We’ve been teasing (and teased by) the release details for Hearthstone Curse Of Naxxramas for months here on Geeky Antics and on HorsePLAY! LIVE. Even on Episode 31 (seen below), we talked Hearthstone and started to speculate around Blizzard’s usual vague reports. Note the Hearthstone-themed overlay.. Yeah, we LOVE this game!
The wait is over guys – Curse Of Naxxramas releases TODAY!
Blizzard pulled another sneaky update here, just like they did with the Hearthstone iPad app release. Yesterday they tweeted that CoN would be released within a “few hours”. That was roughly 13 hours ago as I bring this breaking news to you guys. There’s no planned maintenance so I reckon this is a timed release we’ll see around noon on the West coast and 3pm for EST (GMT-5).
If you want to know some of the things to expect, check out our last The GANG Minute (leaked Curse Of Naxxramas photos inclusive). You’ll want to hoard around 2400-2800 gold if you want to avoid paying out of pocket or are just budget-minded (translation: cheap bastards like many of us). The first installment of the single-player Curse Of Naxxramas adventure will be free, Hearthstone fans – you still have time to raise gold!
On a similar note, there is still time to qualify for the first official Hearthstone World Championship. Hit Legendary and stay on the grind. Details on Curse Of Naxxramas and the Hearthstone World Championship can be found on the Battle.net game client front page/dashboard.
For my Twitch followers, I am taking this opportunity to catch up on my streaming. I’ve been super busy tending to my family and working on projects but now we HAVE to get together and talk Hearthstone. Tweet me @Yogizilla and we can set up Skype chats while we play some Curse Of Naxxramas. Expect tons of Hearthstone streaming and #TheDustOff action too!
