The new Solo Adventure – Galakrond’s Awakening – was just announced! It will feature 4 chapters (which can be played from both sides of the conflict) and 35 new Standard cards (click here for a full list).
Galakrond’s Awakening will be the final part of a year-long storyline, which started back in April with Rise of Shadows. Arch-Villain Rafaam and his crew have retreated to the skies above the frozen wastes of Dragonblight to enact Rafaam’s true master plan: resurrecting the progenitor dragon, Galakrond! Azeroth’s only hope lies in the League of Explorers, back once again for an epic aerial showdown for the fate of the world. Take to the skies as the League of E.V.I.L. and the League of Explorers in a battle between blimps, magic carpets, rocket- powered mechs (and so many dragons) in Hearthstone’s newest Solo Adventure.
Galakrond’s Awakening will have 4 chapters in total, but with a twist. Each one of them will be playable from both sides. Yes, you will play as both League of E.V.I.L. and League of Explorers! Each side will have a 12 total unique encounters / boss fights, so 24 of them in total.

Story & Heroic Modes
The adventure will, like always, come with two modes – Normal and Heroic. This time, however, it will work a bit differently.
Normal mode will be called “Story” and it will be easier + come with pre-built decks. It’s perfect for the players who just want to experience the story and – of course – earn the new cards.
In Heroic, however, players will face more difficult encounters AND won’t have pre-built decks, so they will have to figure out the best ways to beat a given encounters using decks created from their own collection.
