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

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.

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.

You can start playing Whispers of the Old Gods in Hearthstone right now. Note that, as of this writing, Blizzard is experiencing some authentication issues, and you may find yourself unable to login. The company is working to address the issue.

  • Blizzard should make it possible to play on UWP. Please Microsoft pull some strings!
  • Heathstone=pay to win. I hope they don't bother :)
  • Apparently you haven't played, or don't know how to play it. It most certainly isn't pay to win.
  • Basic cards cant do nothing against rare cards from new meta and you can buy them - > p2w.
  • You can also get any cards through play, if you are actually any good at the game.
  • Honestly though, skill is only half of it.  The draw system is entirely RNG and sometimes it can be your death.  It even seems to be different per session of play.  For instance, there are some days I will sign in and play 7-8 games with a proven deck, and win 6-7 of those games, using a variety of win conditions.  Then later that day or the next I sign in and it's the exact opposite, I will win 1-2 games, most of the time because I cannot get a decent mulligan/draw to save my life.  I do believe the game takes skill but that really is absolutely only half of it.  
  • And another person that thinks that US means THE WORLD......if its in the mighty US....... it means is available for everybody because US is TEH WORLD !!! 
  • Salty NA downvoting
  • If you have the internet, you can play it. There are ways, so if you're willing to figure out the ways, it's available to you. Cry harder next time.
  • I'm excited to play this when I get home. I have fifty packs waiting to be opened. :)
  • For everyone? Well, not on Windows mobile...  
  • I've been wanting to say, "Hey, thanks for letting me know. I love playing Blizzard games. However, I'll be more excited when they make Hearthstone a UWP for Mobile and PC".
  • You have access to a PC, you can play it. I very much doubt there are many, if any, WM users that don't have a PC.
  • You have legs dont you? I very much doubt that many car owners dont have legs...
  • I thought that was a flesh light (A)
