For those not in the area, don’t fret, you can get the cards as well if you pre-order.
The Alpha Community will receive extra content thanks to a new update. In it’s next iteration, the testers will receive four new Minions. Those minions are Werewolf, Slasher, Spider, and Peasant. They will also introduce 11 new cards and a special in-game character to the game on top of that. The content will be available from now till the end of PAX.
