Blizzard has now confirmed that The Grand Tournament, the second expansion pack for its hit free-to-play collectible card RPG Hearthstone, will officially be released on August 24 in the US and Europe, and in Asia on August 25.
As previously announced, The Grand Tournament expansion will add a total of 132 new cards for Hearthstone players to purchase and collect. Blizzard is throwing in a new keyword, "Inspire" into the game as well.
Minions with the inspire keyword possess a special ability that may only be activated by using your Hero Power. Deploy them in force to gain tremendous value, or drop them at just the right time to give your play the perfect boost. Can you really inspire an ogre? Absolutely! It just takes finesse (or a ham).
There's still time to pre-purchase a 50-card pack from The Grand Tournament expansion, which will have a special card pack, for $50.
