A new Hearthstone update has appeared, and it's bringing a ton of new interesting stuff for the game.

The Taverns of Time event will get underway on June 11, with Toki Time-Turner having caused "chronological chaos" and "alternate realities" to "collide". The event will add 28 unique cards to the Arena for the duration of the event, which runs until July 2.

The first Arena run in the event will be free, so there's no excuse not to try it out.

It's going to be a busy month for Hearthstone—there's also a free pack day on June 13. Every player that logs in will get a golden Classic pack, containing five golden cards and at least one card rare or better. Previously the golden pack had only been rewarded as a Twitch Prime perk.

Finally, for another way to get packs, Blizzard is adding a time-limited bundle. The Get In Here Bundle contains 10 packs for $7.99, with two Classic packs and two from each of the four most recent expansions—The Witchwood, Knights of the Frozen Throne, Journey to Un'Goro, and Kobolds & Catacombs. The bundle will only be available until June 19.

Alongside all these nice giveaways and new ways to get cards, there are some gameplay changes and bug fixes too. A number of changes are aimed at the Druid Quest, Jungle Giants. Cards summoned in different ways, like through Faceless Manipulator or pulled onto the board and buffed, won't trigger the Quest condition. Tess Greymane has also been changed so that the effect will stop if Tess is taken out of play or silenced, much like Yogg-Saron.
