Hearthstone launches Fractured in Alterac Valley expansion with bonus rewards and a free legendary card of your choice

Blizzard's hit free-to-play digital card game Hearthstone has just launched its latest expansion, Fractured in Alterac Valley. Featuring 135 new collectible cards, the expansion for the wildly popular title welcomes the Battle for Alterac Valley event as well as the new Honorable Kill keyword, plus Legendary Quests to boot.

In Hearthstone's Battle for Alterac Valley, players can take their pick between the Horde or the Alliance. You can choose one of two legendary cards for free, namely, Elder Shaman Drek’Thar of the Horde or Mountain King Vanndar Stormpike of the Alliance.

Additionally, from December 7th to January 11th, factions can score honor points simply by taking part in the Ranked, Arena, and Duels modes. Plus, you can also score unique bonuses when you unleash exact damage to a minion using Honorable Kill. In particular, you can enjoy a reduced cost for all your spells, or you can gain +1/+1 when you land an exact blow.
