Hearthstone: Murder at Castle Nathria is another expansion for Hearthstone that expands the basic game. The pack includes new cards along with new features and game mechanics.
Providing barely a backdrop to the gameplay, the story takes place in the titular fortress of Nathria and tells of the mystery of Ancient Denatrius, who was murdered at a dinner he gave out. As a detective, we investigate the motives of the suspects (introduced as part of a new type of card) until we manage to discover who is responsible for committing the crime. At the start of the game, each player who owns the expansion will also be equipped with a card of the legendary neutral minion, Prince Renathal.
The expansion introduces 135 cards to the game, including a new type of them: Locations, which are a temporary addition to the board. They provide us with reinforcements, and their rules resemble those of minion cards. When we decide to activate them, we have to keep in mind their one-round cooldown and constantly decreasing stamina. With the release of the add-on, Locations are coming to Hearthstone permanently.
In addition to card type, Murder at Castle Nathria also introduces a new keyword: Infuse. It works on the basis of the soul-based currency of the Shadowlands. Cards endowed with the power of Infuse absorb the anima lost by fallen friendly party members, turning into more powerful versions of themselves. To fully saturate, we must hold them in our hand as long as possible, until we are informed by the game that the transformation is over.
Another new element is the cards of legendary suspects. Each class has been given one, making a plethora of different motives for crimes to be discovered. On the other hand, the presence of Prince Renathal provides our hero with 10 more health points and 10 additional cards in the deck.
The add-on does not introduce new modes of play. So the gameplay continues to be based on clashes between two players.
In terms of graphics, the expansion is on the same level as the basic version of the game and previous add-ons. Once again, we also received a lot of cards detailing new characters.
