The upcoming Festival of Legends expansion for Hearthstone is still a couple of weeks away, but it doesn't mean that you'll be doing nothing until it arrives. That's because Blizzard has lined up pre-expansion festivities for everyone to enjoy.

Before we look into these activities, this upcoming expansion has a lot of new things to offer. There's a new keyword and even a new class keyword. Players can also look forward to the release of new signature cards. Pre-purchase of the Festival of Legends is now available.

Card Reveal Stream

The countdown to the launch of the Festival of Legends starts with the Card Reveal Stream happening tomorrow. Simply head over to the game's official Twitch channel at 1:00 p.m. (ET) to watch RegisKillbin, Game Designer Leo Robles Gonzalez, and Senior Game Designer Cora Georgiou reveal the last cards of the new expansion and more.

There's also a bonus since Twitch Drops are enabled for this reveal stream. By simply watching, you get the chance to earn as many as two Festival of Legends Packs.

Community Theorycrafting Streams

Once all cards are revealed, fans can then join their favorite content creators as they conduct the first jam sessions for the expansion. Those who want to join need to have at least 10 Festival of Legends cards in their decks. The schedules are:

  • Americas/EMEA players pick one of two time slots on April 5: 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (ET) or 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. (ET).
  • APAC players play on April 6 at 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. (ET).

Invited players are also going to be streaming their participation on their own personal streams.

Like the previous stream, this one also has Twitch Drops enabled with viewers getting the chance to earn as many as two Festival of Legends Packs.

Festival of Legends Live

This is not yet the release but it will be a show on Twitch where each of the 11 classes get to perform an animated musical set in their genre. It's scheduled on April 6 and April 7 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (ET) each day.

Twitch Drops are still enabled with viewers getting one Festival of Legends Pack.

Pre-Release Weekend

Those who pre-purchased the packs can open them early during a Fireside Gathering from April 7 at 1:00 p.m. (ET) to April 10 at 1:00 p.m. (ET)
