Although just last week Blizzard had posted they were aiming for a July 1st date to announce the pricing for the expansion Curse of Naxxramas for their popular collectible card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, community manager Aratil announced this weekend that the July 1st announcement would not happen.
In a post on the official Hearthstone forums Aratil said: “I know everyone is really excited for any and all information regarding Naxxramas. We’re doing our best to get it into your hands as soon as possible. However, it turns out we’re actually not going to be quite ready to announce Naxxramas pricing on July 1st as I previously mentioned—we do still want to announce more Naxxramas information soon, but I’m afraid it won’t happen on July 1st. We’ll get the details to you as soon as we have finalized information to share.”
Even though there was no announcement of pricing for the expansion Blizzard did announce their new card backs that can be obtained for the July season. Players who obtain a rank 20 or lower in ranked play during the month of July will be awarded the Curse of Naxxramas card back at the end of July. This card back will replace the art decorating the back of your cards during play.
Blizzard has stated they are aiming for a July release date for The Curse of Naxxramas, which hopefully means we will be hearing more about the expansion later this month and taking on the bosses of the classic World of Warcraft raid in card battles soon.
If you still for some reason haven’t played this free to play gem head over to the games website to download the client and when I hear any news I will be sure to pass it along.
