The next big Hearthstone expansion, Whispers of the Old Gods, launches next week, and if you play during the launch week you have the chance to earn 13 FREE card packs from the new expansion!

According to VG24, Blizzard took to a livestream to reveal that along with Whispers of the Old Gods releasing next week players can get 10 packs from the new expansion through various quests during the release week.

Five packs can be obtained through a special launch quest. The quest has the player win two games in Standard mode, the new ranked mode where players can't use older cards. Players who complete another special launch quest by winning seven more games of Standard mode get five more Whispers of the Old Gods packs.

That means players can get up to 13 free packs! 

Whispers of the Old Gods reshapes Hearthstone today

Blizzard sent out an official press release today detailing the launch of their Whispers of the Old Gods expansion for Hearthstone. The expansion features 134 new cards with lots and lots of tentacles and a focus on the aptly named legendary Old Gods themselves, C’Thun, N’Zoth, Yogg-Saron, and Y’Shaarj.

"Whispers of the Old Gods adds an exciting new set of creepy, corrupted cards to Hearthstone,” said Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime. “We can’t wait to see how creative players are with the ancient evil of the Old Gods in their hands.”

It's worth noting that there are a few freebies thrown in for players who log back into the game. You will receive, C’Thun and two Beckoner of Evil cards when you open your first Whispers of the Old Gods card pack. You will also get three Whispers of the Old Gods card packs for free but the offer is only good for a limited time.

It was previously revealed that players will have the chance to earn 13 additional free card packs by completing various quests. Suffice it to say, there's a lot of freebies going around in Whispers of the Old Gods.

Someone made Hearthstone cards sing Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time" and it's hilarious

YouTube, like Amazon, is a place where you can find almost everything. Except, unlike Amazon it's free and things can get weird fast. 

YouTuber Grün Ling (via PC Gamer) took a number of Hearthstone cards, sampled them their sounds and put them together to the tune of Britney Spears' "Baby One More Time." Ling only worked out the initial chorus for the song, but that's pretty much the entirety of the song… So you aren't left wanting too much more.

The real winner of all the cards is Gadgetzan Auctioneer, as that card is the one with the most important line in the song – 'baby.'

Recently, another YouTuber took initiative and made the latest Gears of War 4 even more emotional.
