Here are all the new cards coming to Hearthstone: Curse of Naxxramas

Curse of Naxxramas has added over 30 new cards to the game as well as introduced raiding, which will let players venture into the depths of Naxxramas. The raid itself will feature five wings - the first being free, and the rest requiring gold or real money - which will unlock progressively over the course of the next five weeks.

We’ve done some detective work and rounded up all of the cards, so you can start planning your new and improved Naxxramas themed decks. Which is your favourite?

Elder Scrolls Online apparently has more than 750,000 subscribers

The Elder Scrolls Online has had a lot of problems since launch - duplication bugsgold farmers, and stuck NPCs - but apparently that’s not stopped it from racking more than 750,000 subscribers. According to a report from SuperData, the game boasts 772,374 paying accounts.

That number should only grow with it’s recent move to the Steam storefront.

Hearthstone's Curse of Naxxramas won't cost you your soul

Hearthstone’s dungeon expansion, Curse of Naxxramas, will take adventurous card sharks (and orcs, humans etc) to the floating necropolis of Naxxramas for good times and boss battles this month. Today, Blizzard’s broken down the pricing and bundles and introduces the very World of Warcraft Heroic mode. 

If the upcoming expansion is piquing your interest, but you’re fresh-faced and deckless, take a look at Nick’s best Hearthstone decks for beginners

Hearthstone's Curse of Naxxramas expansion will kick you out of the tavern and into a dungeon next month

Curse of Naxxramas, Hearthstone’s expansion that promises to drag us out of the tavern and fling us in a foul dungeon, is due out next month. So drink all the mead you can in the mean time. If you've not tasted their fine mead, you should read our Hearthstone review to find out what you're missing.

Blizzard gave up the release window in the forums, noting that there were still bugs to fix and things to implement before launch. Pricing details for the expansion are due to be announced on Tuesday, July 1st.

World of Warcraft's human male MKII

World of Warcraft's human male MKII

The big redesign of World of Warcraft’s old character models has finally hit the humans, or at least the male of the species. Now he looks, if not human, at least more expressive and detailed. Less like a sex doll and more like a shaved gorilla. 

He still looks a little silly, but I remain a fan of the comical proportions and general dopiness, and Blizzard has tried to keep that. The fidelity is vastly improved though.

Ding: World of Warcraft player hits level 90 on his neutral Pandaren

Ding: World of Warcraft player hits level 90 on his neutral Pandaren

He’s done it: Doubleagent has hit level 90 on his Pandaren Shaman. This isn’t your normal player, as this Pandaren has still yet to choose a faction, resulting in him being neutral. Being stuck on his starter island, the only way he could level was via gathering: mining and herbalism.

After 4164 hours his goal is complete, but this isn’t the end as Doubleagent “intends to level to 100 come the next expansion".

Warlords of Draenor's patch notes will keep you reading until launch

World of Warcraft’s Warlords of Draenor expansion is still some ways away, but you can work yourself up into some sweaty excitement by browsing the time travelling expansion’s alpha patch notes

The update list is appropriately humongous given that it’s attached to brand new systems and a whole new/old world to explore. Blizzard’s conveniently provided a TL;DR version as well, because you don’t all have three days to read through the whole bloody thing.

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor alpha invites in the mail (for some)

Some of you may have woken up to an unexpected email from Blizzard inviting you into the Warlords of Draenor alpha. The closed test lets some players go hands on with the new World of Warcraft expansion ahead of its release this December.

As the test progresses more features and areas coming in the expansion will become available to play with but for now alpha testers only have access to Frostfire Ridge “a harsh land of ceaseless winter and volcanic peaks," and they can only play as the Horde, too.

The best Hearthstone decks for beginners

The best Hearthstone decks for beginners

Hearthstone is one of those games that can be quite deceiving when it comes to its depth. Built with the pride of being easily accessible, only a fool would think that same pride makes for a shallow game. Instead Hearthstone provides a great arena in a battle of intellect, skill and the occasional luck. The saying “a day to learn, a lifetime to master" could very well have some merit here. It certainly did when I was writing my Hearthstone review.

Not long ago Blizzard released a revamped ranked matchmaking system. Now players climb the ladder to attain fame, glory and legendary status. Understanding the mechanics and having knowledge of the cards isn’t enough: you need to have a great deck. With an ever changing meta, we’re here to lend you a helping hand. In this guide we’ll give you two exceptional decks for each class: one for a beginner requiring little dust, and one more for the advanced and costly.

Horde or Alliance: Azeroth Choppers wants you to choose your ride

Horde or Alliance: Azeroth Choppers wants you to choose your ride

The penultimate episode of Azeroth Choppers, the bizarre reality webshow that combined American Choppers with World of Warcraft, sees the Horde and Alliance teams finish their choppers. 

The bikes were made by two teams, one led by Blizzard scribe Chris Metzen and the other by art man Sam Didier. They also had help from that angry chopper-making fellow from American Choppers. 

With the show gearing up for the finale, it’s time to vote on which bike deserves to be added to World of Warcraft as an in-game mount. If wouldn’t be reality TV without disappointment and losers.

Warcraft the movie has wrapped - but won't be out until 2016

Men and women in caps (crew) and helmets (cast) have finished filming the Warcraft movie. Hooray! Let’s give them a week to reel it all up and then we’ll all go and see it, yeah?

‘Fraid not. Warcraft will now be handed over to Industrial Light and Magic, who’ll subject it to enough special effects and post-processing work to keep it unseen till 2016.

Hearthstone World Championship prize pool will be enough to buy all the decks and then some

Gosh, it’s a competitive world out there. We’ve got the Dota 2 International qualifiers going on right now, and soon the Hearthstone World Championship American Qualifier Tournament will be kicking off, with warriors, mages, paladins and the rest all duking it out for a spot in the finals at BlizzCon later this year. It’s all very stressful. 

Blizzard has just announced the prize pool for the championship, which amounts to $250,000. That’s rather a lot of money, even if it’s not quite as gigantic as some esports pools. The winner of the competition will receive $100,000 of it. That’s enough money to buy a lot of decks.

Level 90 crash course videos teach DPS specialisation basics for Warlords of Draenor

With Warlords of Draenor dropping later this year, along with a free level 90 character for every player, Blizzard’s dropping a bit of knowledge. A video covering the DPS specialisation for each class has been thrown up, ostensibly teaching new players how to kick some arses with their new level 90. 

Obviously you’ll want to start with the Shadow Priest, objectively the best class. Though you really should already have one. Check out Priest 101 below.

Law and Order: Garrosh Hellscream faces trial in new World of Warcraft novel

Oh Garrosh, you just can’t help yourself. All that butchery and sin was only going to land you in chains someday, and now here you are, awaiting trial for that messy siege of Orgimmar. The details of your crimes have all been written down in this neat little book called World of Warcraft: War Crimes, and is no doubt on the recommended reading list for the Jury. It’s also available to non-Azeroth folk, too.

In other words: there’s a new World of Warcraft tie-in novel available to buy now.

Don't cry for the old ways: Blizzard talk three tier system for Warlords of Draenor PvP gear

The World of Warcraft dev team tweak, update and revamp, but most of the time they simply watch - they’re the invisible sentinels in the corners of its servers. Lately, they’ve noticed the “ever-increasing" item level gap between the PvP gear you can purchase with honor points and their higher level equivalent, conquest points.

To tackle that great fissure in PvP progression, they’ll introduce a middle tier of gear in Warlords of Draenor.

Why Blizzard created Flexible Raiding mode in World of Warcraft

Why Blizzard created Flexible Raiding mode in World of Warcraft

Blizzard’s been delving into World of Warcraft’s almost decade-long history of raids to put changes that Warlords of Draenor will bring to raiding into context. In part 2, Blizzard looks at the era of Catacylsm and Mists of Pandaria, which saw some significant changes. 

During this four year period Blizzard removed multiple difficulties from the equation, then added Raid Finder, which split difficulty up again, into three categories, and then added Flexible Raid mode, adapting raids to various sizes. It’s been quite a meandering journey.

Let's investigate the first picture from the Warcraft movie

The Warcraft movie!? Why are you writing about this tripe instead of all of these games that people seem to like, I hear you cry. Hold your horses, though. We’ve got pictures now, you see. Things become much more real and important when you’re staring right at them. Just like the way director Duncan Jones is staring at two blurry men on a small screen. 

Gaze upon the first photo from (the set of) the movie. Then we’ll talk.
