Hearthstone players are taking a trip to one of World of Warcraft’s original battlegrounds in the digital card game’s latest expansion, Fractured in Alterac Valley.

In just a few weeks, players will be able to duel for honor in the seasonally appropriate frigid conditions of Alterac Valley. 

Among the features in the set will be Hero Cards for class mercenaries, a new keyword called Honorable Kill that rewards players for dealing exactly lethal damage, and Objective spells that have three-turn-long effects.

Hearthstone’s Fractured in Alterac Valley officially releases globally on Dec. 7.

Players can pre-purchase the new expansion in two forms. The base bundle for the set consists of 60 packs for the set as well as two random Legendary cards from the set and a Vanndar Stormpike card back cosmetic. The bundle costs $49.99.

The Mega-Bundle costs $79.99 but comes with 20 more packs, five golden card packs, two random golden cards, five mercenaries packs, a Vanndar Stormpike alternate hero, and a random Legendary mercenary.
