Blizzard aiming to release Hearthstone single-player Curse of Naxxramas mode in July

New, 34 comments

Free-to-play digital card battling title Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is slated to receive single-player adventure mode Curse of Naxxramas in July, Blizzard community manager Aratil posted on the Battle.net forums.

"Just wanted to give everyone a head's up that we are currently targeting to release Curse of Naxxramas during the month of July," the post reads. "Unfortunately, we still have a lot of implementing and bug fixing to get through, so please stay tuned! With that said, we are also targeting to reveal pricing details regarding Curse of Naxxramas next week on July 1, so please keep an eye out for that."

According to the mode's announcement in April, the new content will launch simultaneously on iPad, Mac and Windows PC. Naxxramas sends players to a floating necropolis "filled with the stuff of nightmares" with deep roots in World of Warcraft lore. Using their deck of choice, players will face off against undead bosses across the five different wings of the Naxxramas player-versus-environment scenarios over the course of five weeks.
