Saviors of Uldum - Hearthstone Cinematic Trailer

Shadows rose, Dalaran was stolen, and now the League of E.V.I.L. travels to Uldum to unleash devastating plagues upon the world! There is hope, though… The League of Explorers has taken up the challenge and are prepared to save the day in Hearthstone’s newest Expansion - Saviors of Uldum!

The shadows are rising again...
darker than they've ever been.

As evil descends from the skies
The world cries out... will we survive?

Out of the hall of explorers
and out from the dusty tombs.
They grab their whips and fedoras…
These legends of the past
know exactly what to do!

There might be magic monsters
mummies in the market
and ancient mysticism.

There's surely scorching deserts
adventure, and
much needed narcissism.

High stakes!
Think annihilation.
Obliteration of civilization!

Now is the time to be brave...
evil's come to enslave!
But the league's
gonna save...

Saviors of Uldum is Hearthstone's twelfth expansion. Featuring 135 new collectible cards, it is slated for release August 6, 2019.

Following the League of E.V.I.L.'s successful theft of the magical city of Dalaran, the nefarious evil-doers have turned to the land of Uldum, a place of vast deserts and ancient mysteries. While the villains' ultimate plans are still a mystery, all is not lost: the brave League of Explorers − Reno Jackson, Elise Starseeker, Brann Bronzebeard, and Sir Finley Mrrgglton−have returned to save the world from Arch-Villain Rafaam and his cohorts.

The expansion sees the introduction of the new keyword Reborn, allowing minions to return after death; devastating "Plague" spells that affect the entire board; and the re-introduction of the Quest mechanic, originally introduced in Journey to Un'Goro.

Uldum is a large desert region at the southern end of the continent of Kalimdor. Bordered by the verdant Un'Goro Crater to the north and the Tanaris desert (home of the city of Gadgetzan) to the east, Uldum contains many facilities of the godlike, world-shaping titans and has long been guarded by the catlike tol'vir. The tol'vir were originally stone-skinned titan-forged constructs created to maintain titan machinery but were transformed into beings of flesh and blood due to the Curse of Flesh, an affliction created by the malefic Old Gods.

For millennia, Uldum was magically hidden and cut off from the rest of Azeroth, but when Deathwing emerged into Azeroth and caused the Cataclysm, the land was revealed to the outside world. One of the tol'vir tribes, the Neferset, swore allegiance ot Deathwing and his ally Al'Akir in return for regaining their original stone forms. In World of Warcraft, the first portion of the storyline in Uldum revolves around adventurers helping the Ramkahen tol'vir wage war against their former Neferset allies, while the second half of the zone sees adventurers accompany the famous explorer Harrison Jones and later Brann Bronzebeard as they explore ancient titan secrets and work to prevent minions of Deathwing from gaining control of a superweapon capable of destroying all life on Azeroth.

Blizzard Entertainment's Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a free-to-play strategy card game for Windows, Macintosh, and iPad. Designed to be deceptively simple and epically engaging for players of all backgrounds, Hearthstone features quick and lively duels that evoke the spirit of a friendly match played beside a crackling tavern fire.

Each player's card deck centers around a hero representing one of nine iconic Warcraft classes, customized with a set of minions, spells, and/or weapons based on individual strategy and available cards. Players will be able to hone their skills in practice matches against the computer, and when they're ready for the challenge, they can take on their friends and other players in friendly duels. To further develop their decks, players will be able to acquire cards by crafting them and by winning or purchasing new card packs. With hundreds of unique cards to choose from, the potential card combinations and possible strategies are endless!
