Hearthstone’s second expansion, The Grand Tournament, was released today. This adds 132 new cards and a new keyword, Inspire, which rallies minions to your aid. Check out the trailer - it is short and in true Blizzard fashion, doesn't take itself particularly seriously.
This expansion brings a more lighthearted tone to the narrative of the game. Previously, the tournaments were to find the best heroes to face the most ferocious enemy of Azeroth. Now, they gather to show off their skills. The Grand Tournament also includes a new Hearthstone board which has a pavilion, carnival games, a snack bar and practice dummies. The rewards are not light - those who rise above rank 20 will recieve a tresure chest at the end of the season. The higher the rank, the heavier your loot.
When a pack is awarded, players have the opportunity to receive any of the previous Hearthstone cards with a greater chance of being awarded The Grant Tournament card packs.
