Hearthstone’s latest expansion, The Saviors of Uldum, will launch on August 6. In addition to being the latest expansion, this is the next installment in the multi-expansion story that spans the whole Year of the Dragon.

In terms of story, it appears that evil is on the rise on the deserts of Uldum. However, hope also rises in the form of League of Explorers. Players get the chance to join Reno, Elise, Brann, and Sir Finley as they battle bad guys, unearth treasures, and save the world.

In Saviors of Uldum, players get the chance to use 135 new cards in addition to new game features, along with new and exciting mechanics. Changes introduced with this new expansion include:

  • New Keyword
    • Reborn
    • Minions with the Reborn Keyword returns to life the first time they’re destroyed but with their health starting at 1
  • New Spell
    • Plague
    • These are spells that wreak havoc indiscriminately
    • They affect every Minion on the board
  • New Card
    • Quests
    • These are Legendary 1-Mana cards that start in the player’s hand
    • Once played their progress is tracked above the player’s Hero portrait
    • Once completed players are rewarded with game-changing new Hero Power
