Hearthstone game director Ben Brode took the stage for the big reveal.

The expansion, coming in December, brings 135 new cards to unpack, a new card mechanic to shake things up, and a rogue-like single player mode called Dungeon Run.

Just as the leaks earlier this year alluded to, the rat-like subterranean Kobolds will play a major part in this expansion's theme filled with monsters, treasures, and traps as you dig and explore your way underground.

However, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Ajayi will be working with a " very limited " set of plays. His six touchdown receptions also lead all National Football League tight ends.

Blizzard will also be delivering new single-player content, a roguelike mode that has players venturing through a dungeon, defeating bosses.

In Dungeon Runs! you have to take on random bosses and each time you defeat a boss you learn new cards increasing your power.

Kobolds & Catacombs card packs will be winnable in Hearthstone's Arena mode and players can purchase them with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone's other card packs. I like the "permadeath" nature of it too, as if you lose once your run is over! "And it's totally free". Free-to-play players rejoice!

Rams Giants Week 9 2017 score, highlights
But as always, here are five takeaways from the Rams most recent win against the Giants to help earn their fifth win in six games. They then got a blocked punt from Cory Littleton and took a 41-10 lead on Goff's four-yard touchdown pass to Woods.

Brode also revealed a new keyword for the expansion: Recruit. Since Hearthstone's next expansion is D&D themed, it will introduce treasure chests and loot to the game. Rin, the First Disciple is potentially the most powerful card in Hearthstone, if not any CCG, because she gives players a set of Seal cards that summon demons. If you're attending Blizzcon or watching the Virtual Ticket, you'll get a golden version of the card. There are also new class-specific legendary weapons for each of the nine classes. The enemies you face have their own unsafe weapons, items, cards you don't expect. Two have been revealed namely Aluneth for the Mage class which is a 6-cost 0/3 weapon that allows the player to draw three cards every end of their turn, and Dragon Soul for the Priest class which is a 3-cost 0/3 weapon that summons a 5/5 dragon whenever the player casts three spells in a turn. Cards with the recruit effect will summon a minion card from your deck to the field. Ysera for six mana?

Hearthstone: Kobolds and Catacombs will launch in December.
