Hearthstone players can adopt a fresh new face for $10.


Hearthstone developer Blizzard is introducing a new kind of DLC called New Heroes.

These $10 packs grant you a new Hero for an existing class – not a new class. Grabbing a New Hero has absolutely no effect on gameplay; it’s the equivalent of buying a character skin, according to a Battle.net post.

The purely cosmetic pack includes a brand new animated hero portrait; new card back; unique power animations, emotes and voices; a custom visual theme; and opening and closing battle animations.

The first of these packs to hit the Hearthstone store will be Magni Bronzebeard, king of Ironforge. No release date as yet, but you can take a look at it in action below.
