The latest expansion to the Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft digital card game, Whispers of the Old Gods, is now available for players. This expansion adds a new, Lovecraftian horror dimension to the game, with new creatures and new spins on old cards.

Hearthstone's Whispers of the Old Gods expansion awakens for everyone

Whispers of the Old Gods brings 134 new cards to the game. These includes Old God cards, C'Thun, Yogg-Saron, Y'Shaarj, and N'Zoth, which offer new and powerful abilities. There are also "corrupted" versions of old cards, which have different skills from their standard version. You can also be able to play Forbidden Cards, which consume all of your available mana for a turn to power its effect, increasing its potency with each mana point used.

When you open your first Whispers of the Old Gods pack, you'll get as part of it C'Thun, the god of madness, along with two Beckoner of Evil cards.
