Some of the cards for the upcoming "Kobolds and Catacombs" set were shown off during the presentation by having the entire live audience play a bit of live dungeons and dragons through a dungeon littered with some of those new cards.

Hearhstone's next expansion is going to take us deep into the dungeons of Azeroth in search of rare treasures. Intrepid adventurers will also be able to arm themselves with one of nine new class-specific Legendary Weapons! Whenever you beat one of these bosses, you can to select one very powerful "boss card" to add to your collection. Losing a single battle however will send a player right back to the start of their dungeon journey, destroying their deck and forcing them to restart.

Recruit is another mechanic in the expansion that simply pulls a random minion from a player's deck into play. Players must defeat eight random bosses out of almost fifty possible encounters, while collecting loot along the way to reinforce their decks for the fight ahead. As they progress, they'll bolster their decks with cards looted from defeated bosses, including some immensely powerful treasures exclusive to Dungeon Runs. It is the second expansion of the year that embraces Blizzard's new philosophy of releasing major expansions that also include a single-player component.

Kobolds & Catacombs will add new cards and mechanics to Hearthstone, just all like other previous expansions to the digital card game.

Part of that throwback feeling comes from the bounty of new cards, and part of it comes from the new Dungeon Run mode.

"It's essentially a Hearthstone roguelike", Brode said. If you manage to lose, you lose your deck and get to start over with a new hero.

Kobolds and Catacombs introduces legendary weapons for every class, including those who have never recieved weapons in the past. But because you're playing against AI opponents, the Hearthstone team was able to test out some insane cards in Dungeon Run. It'll launch in December, but players logging in to Hearthstone on Monday will get a free card.
