Diablo 4 is just around the corner, and Blizzard’s popular collectible card game Hearthstone is celebrating with a couple of in-game events in June. A special Battlegrounds and Tavern Brawl will launch during the month, just after the launch of the next Hearthstone mini-set for traditional play.
First, Diablo will return to Hearthstone Battlegrounds for a limited time, June 5-7. Diablo was first introduced in 2021 as a limited-time Battlegrounds hero. When one player selects Diablo, it makes that player a raid boss who takes on all seven other players simultaneously once every four turns, with the winners claiming specialized loot. Blizzard didn’t detail any changes for this reemergence of Diablo.
Plus, a special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl boss battle is coming. This one will be unusual for Tavern Brawls as it will last for two weeks instead of just one, and your progression against the boss will be saved across each run. For your efforts you can snag a special card back.
Before Diablo arrives though, it’s the end of the world as we know it with the Audiopocalypse mini-set for standard Hearthstone play. The mini-set launching May 31 will add more cards to the latest expansion, Festival of Legends. Those will include new dual-class minions and spells and Remixed cards that get a shifting bonus effect in your hand. Check below for all the cards revealed so far.
With Diablo 4 around the corner, Blizzard is hosting special events across the board, with special drops in World of Warcraft, Diablo Immortal, and on Twitch. Blizzard also just debuted the live-action trailer for the game. For more, check out our Diablo 4 preorder guide and launch time guide.
