Blizzard Entertainment gave fans a first look at the next Hearthstone expansion today. Named Ashes of Outland, the expansion releases April 7 and features the game’s first new class since 2014. To celebrate the expansion’s release, Blizzard is giving fans a free Legendary minion: Kael’thas Sunstrider.
Kael’thas Sunstrider is a six-cost 4/7 Neutral Legendary minion. When the card is in play, every third spell the user casts will cost zero mana. Fans can claim the card by simply logging in to the game at any point from today until June 29. Once users log in, the card will automatically be added to their collection.
Blizzard Entertainment revealed the new expansion today and Hearthstone’s first new class since 2014. Named Demon Hunter, the class is inspired by Illidan Stormrage and features a one-cost Hero Power named Demon Claws, which gives the user +1 attack for one turn.
Players can unlock the Demon Hunter class for free by completing the class’ prologue missions, which will become available on April 2. Once players have completed all of the missions, they’ll receive all 20 Demon Hunter basic cards and a 20-card Demon Hunter pack.
