Blizzard has revealed eight new cards in Hearthstone’s upcoming expansion, called Whispers of the Old Gods. Some of the new cards are just corrupted versions of classic cards such as Loot Hoarder and Doomsayer. The latter of which is a uniquely part-time 7/7 for five mana. You can see images of these new eight cards below.

Possibly the biggest game-changer is the Eater of Secrets, a four-mana 2/4 that destroys all secrets and gets buffed 1/1 for each one. It singlehandedly threatens to eliminate Paladin Secret decks.

The theme of Hearthstone’s third expansion is ancient, god-like evils awakening from their slumber, and four legendary cards will be introduced to carry this theme. If this sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because you’ve at least googled H. P. Lovecraft once in your life. One of the major player cards that has already been revealed is C’Thun, a ten-mana 6/6 with a unique battlecry that can be buffed before it is deployed by using other cards. Hearthstone designer Ben Brode says there are 16 new cards that interact with C’Thun in some way; the first two are shown in the gallery above.

Whispers of the Old Gods is set to launch late April or early May, no set date was announced. It will arrive along with bigger changes to Hearthstone, with the popular collectable digital card game introducing a new Standard mode that phases out older expansions.

Just about 134 new cards will arrive with the Whispers of the Old Gods expansion. Blizzard will showcase them all before its release date. So stay tuned to Gamer Assault Weekly, we will bring you all the updates as they are released, and for all your gaming needs.
