More details on the upcoming single player Hearthstone adventure, Curse of Naxxramas have been revealed. As mentioned in our previous article on the expansion, there are five total wings (sections), which will open one at a time, with a new wing opening each week. The wings of Naxxramas will open in the following order: Arachnid Quarter, Plague Quarter, Military Quarter, Construct Quarter, and Frostwyrm Lair.
Players who begin their adventure during the month-long launch event will gain free access to the first wing. After the Arachnid Quarter, the next four wings can be purchased for 700 gold (in-game currency) per wing or $6.99 per wing. If you would like to purchase multiple wings at once, Curse of Naxxramas bundle packages are also available.

Purchasing the bundles does not grant access to those wings any faster than the one-wing-a-week schedule. You’ll just be guaranteed access as soon as those wings become available. If you play during the launch event, then decide to purchase the remaining wings with real money, you’ll only have to purchase the 4-Wing bundle at a discounted price.
If you unlock additional wings with gold and wish to purchase a wing bundle at a later time with real money, you can still take advantage of the bundle pricing. For example, if you enter the Arachnid Quarter during the launch event and unlock it for free, then purchase the second wing with gold, the remaining three wings can be purchased with real money at the 3-wing bundle price.
There will also be a Heroic mode available in the Curse of Naxxramas. Once you’ve defeated all of the bosses within any given wing, you’ll unlock the Heroic mode of that wing. Heroic mode bosses are significantly more difficult, and will prove to be a challenge for even the most skilled players. Defeating all of the bosses in Naxxramas on Heroic mode will unlock a new card back for your collection.
No release date has been given for Curse of Naxxramas beyond the original date of “July” but we’ll have more information on when you can get your hands on the single player adventure as it becomes available.
