New Hearthstone Expansion Announced


Coming later this year.

During its BlizzCon 2016 keynote this morning, Blizzard announced a new Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft expansion.

Called Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, the expansion is themed around the bustling port town of Gadgetzan. In keeping with the theme, it features three city factions: The Grimy Goons for Hunters, Paladins, and Warriors, the Kabal for Mages, Priests, and Warlocks, and the Jade Lotus for Druids, Rogues, and Shamans.

Most notable in this new expansion is the introduction of tri-class cards, the first time that Hearthstone will allow specific cards to work with multiple classes. This is the fourth Hearthstone expansion, and it brings with it 132 new cards.

Mean Streets of Gadgetzan is coming early December. You can read more about it on Hearthstone’s official website.

Today’s news follows the launch of Hearthstone’s fourth adventure, One Night in Karazhan, which launched in August and introduced 45 new cards.
