Hearthstone: Madness at the Darkmoon Faire sees the return of the Old Gods

Hearthstone: Madness at the Darkmoon Faire, C'thun, the Shattered

Blizzard and Team 5 announced the latest Hearthstone expansion on Thursday, Madness at the Darkmoon Faire and among the disclosures of brand-new keyword Corrupt, 135 new cards and an all-new game mode called Duels came what was perhaps the most foreboding and shocking reveal of all: the return of the Old Gods.

The Old Gods, the eldritch, Lovecraftian, parasitic entities who ruled primordial Azeroth before the arrival of the Titans were first introduced in The Whispers of the Old Gods expansion in 2016 and featured Battlecries and Card Effects whose repercussions were unique, powerful and still relevant in the Hearthstone meta even all these years later. And now the four Old Gods are back, with four new Legendary cards for the Madness at the Darkmoon Faire expansion which are sure to make their presence felt in the standard meta once more.

Here’s a look at the four Old Gods as they’ll appear in Hearthstone: Madness at the Darkmoon Faire:

Ninja Gaiden was my rite of passage at an early age. After finally beating that game (and narrowly dodging carpal tunnel) I decided to write about my gaming exploits. These days I enjoy roguelikes and anything Pokemon but I'll always dust off Super Mario RPG, Donkey Kong Country and StarFox 64 from time to time to bask in their glory.
