As promised, Blizzard have rolled out a fresh new event for their card game Hearthstone. Dubbed Doom in the Tomb, the event follows the Headless Horseman, who has barricaded himself in Uldum's deserted tombs and is asking for trouble.
Doom in the Tomb Hallow's End is live already and will last until 30 October. "Pack your torches and latch your helmets, Heroes. The Headless Horseman has infiltrated Uldum's deserted desert tombs, outfitted himself with powerful relics, and has set his sights on besting the battling Leagues", they wrote.
Blizzard divided the event into weekly thematic episodes, each with own narrative and rewards. So, the first week of Doom in the Tomb has Hearthstone players picking their favourite League of E.V.I.L. member and going for the Haunted Temple, the timing of which will decide on the rewards you get.

Blizzard brought back the Dual-Class Arena Hallow's Eve dress-up party, meaning that Arena runs during the Doom in the Tomb event let you choose heroes and their powers, while card offerings come from both of the classes.
Additionally, as of today and until Hearthstone's next major update, 23 cards from the game's history will be going back into Standard.
"To ensure that everyone can participate in this meta-mixing event, we’ll be granting everyone free copies of each card (these copies cannot be disenchanted or crafted) so they can add these heavy-hitters to their decks and get straight into the action. These cards will be considered "event" cards, which essentially means that they're temporary copies and not permanent additions to your collection", Blizzard said.
