The first major content drop in 2020 for Hearthstone has just been released as the start of Galakrond’s Awakening brings new cards, rewards, and more.
Released on January 21, the first chapter in the latest solo adventure is now live. With unique rewards being introduced as each week of fresh content is added into the game, there’s a great deal for dedicated Hearthstone players to unlock.
From brand new cards to unique narrative-driven experiences, make sure you check out our full guide below to get caught up to speed on the most recent additions to Blizzard’s collectible card game.
What rewards are available in Galakrond’s Awakening?
With each passing week, two new playable campaigns will be added into the game that provide unique rewards throughout. Offering unique perspectives, the latest adventure allows players to witness events from League of E.V.I.L’s point of view, as well as the League of Explorers, both of which come boasting their own respective rewards.
Chapter One – which is now available for $6.99 or 700 gold – introduces a total of eleven new cards: four throughout each campaign, and three bonus cards as a cherry on top of the new release.
While a number of these cards were revealed previously, various additions have been sprinkled in as a surprise. These new minions and spells alike can all be acquired by completing the encounters throughout each consecutive chapter.
