The latest expansion for Hearthstone, Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, is now live. Here’s what you need to know.

The new expansion brings 135 new collectibles, in addition to a new corrupt keyword, Old God artifacts, and much more. Among the old gods returning are C’thun, N’Zoth, Yogg-Saron, and Y’Shaarj. This time, they return as legendary minions. Each of these old gods will leverage a different deck archetype. They also include a powerful battlecry. While you’re at it, be sure to check out the old god artifacts.

There’s a new keyword as well, “corrupt.” These Corrupt cards will effectively upgrade in your hand but only after you play a card at a higher cost. The Corrupted version of each card isn’t just stronger. It also features unique alternate artwork.

Finally, Season One of Hearthstone Duels is officially live. Duels is an all-new completely free game mode that combines the thrill of the player-vs.-player Arena mode with the delightfully unpredictable and over-the-top deckbuilding experience from the game’s most beloved Dungeon Runs.
