Hearthstone’s highly anticipated expansion, March of the Lich King, has an official release date. Fortunately for fans, they won’t have to wait for long before getting their hands on the final 2022 Hearthstone expansion.
March of the Lich King will be one of the biggest expansions. It will introduce a lot of new cards along with a brand new hero class! Death Knights will return to the game as part of the eleventh playable class of the game.
We’ve covered all the information about March of the Lich King’s release date, new cards, and new features below.
March of the Lich King Release Date
The new expansion will launch worldwide on December 6, 2022. We do not know the exact launch time. However, we expect it to go live at 10:00 Pacific Time. Most previous expansions have made their debut between 10:00-11:00 am PDT time frame.
However, you probably will be unable to play the game at the exact launch time due to the heavy traffic. The Halloween event this year brought in so much traffic that the server speed was almost 0!
