Blizzard has been doing the Winter Veil celebrations for awhile now, mainly in World of Warcraft. Hearthstone, on the other hand, is also going to be partaking in the Winter Veil celebrations this year as well. There’s plenty of goodies to be had in this celebration.
The Winter Veil celebrations have begun today in Hearthstone, with all the maps turning into Winter versions of what they usually are. Each map, or game board depending on what you call them, will be fully decked out in Winter Veil decorations and snow. The heroes in the game have all gotten into the spirit of things as well, with all of them now having a new, jolly “Greetings” emote you can play around with.
It isn’t all aesthetics that are getting a change with this update though. During the Winter Veil celebration, players will receive 10 free Classic Hearthstone packs when you purchase a bundle of 40 Classic Hearthstone packs or more. So you’ll be getting a little bit of a gift. This is just the beginning too. Blizzard has already announced that there are more Winter Veil events coming, and when those arrive we will post an update.
