Battlegrounds Season 3 is coming to Hearthstone. Kicking off on January 17, 2023, quests will fly out of Battlegrounds mode. For this, Professor Plague Murder takes over the helm. The undead supergenius that WoW players should be familiar with from the WotLK raid Icecrown Citadel brings 32 new minions to the battlefield.
In line with the current Hearthstone expansion, March of the Lich King, 11 of the 32 new minions have two minion types and 16 are undead. Professor Plague Murder himself will of course also find his way into the game as a hero in his own right. With his special hero ability he combines undead minions.
Hearthstone Battlegrounds Season 3 – New Undead minions with two types
32 new minions are hitting the battlefield in the new season, including 16 new undead minions and 11 new dual-type minions. The undead are all about death effects like recurrence and deathrattle, while the dual-type minions have synergy with two different minion types at the same time!

On January 17th, Battlegrounds Season 2 ends and Season 3 begins. From this point on, players will be able to earn rewards in the new Season 3 Battlegrounds path. Any rewards previously earned on the Season 2 Battlegrounds path but not yet claimed will be claimed automatically.
The Battle for Silvermoon will also be fought in Battlegrounds mode in Season 3! Along this battleground path you will find new cosmetic items – freezing ones from the Scourge and fiery ones from Silvermoon City. When you purchase the Season Pass, you’ll immediately get two additional hero pick options at the start of each match. You can also use the Battlegrounds path to unlock all tiers of the new Silvermoon Legendary Battlegrounds Assault and earn up to 15 additional hero skins throughout the season.
Battlegrounds preview event
Following the reveal, a special preview event with Professor Plague Murder for Battlegrounds Season 3 will be held on January 12 from 18:00 to 00:00 CET!
