Hearthstone's Naxxramas DLC goes for $25 or less


The floating necropolis of Naxxramas is coming to Hearthstone, complete with five wings that will open on a weekly basis, in the following order: Arachnid Quarter, Plague Quarter, Military Quarter, Construct Quarter and Frostwyrm Lair. The Arachnid Quarter will be free to enter during the Curse of Naxxramas launch event, which should last for a month or so, Blizzard says. After that, the remaining four wings cost $7 or 700 gold each.

Curse of Naxxramas also has bundle pricing: $25 for all five wings, $20 for the final four, $15 for the final three and $10 for the final two. There isn't an option to buy bundles with in-game gold, but if you play through the first wing during the free event, you only have to purchase the remaining four wings. Buying bundles doesn't unlock areas earlier than their weekly launches.

Curse of Naxxramas features a Heroic mode for each wing that unlocks after you defeat all of the area's bosses. In Heroic mode, bosses "will prove to be a challenge for even the most veteran Hearthstone players," Blizzard says. Beating all Naxxramas bosses in Heroic mode unlocks a new card back. Pretty!

There's no release date for Naxxramas, but Blizzard is saying "soon" quite a lot. Last we heard, it was due out in July.
