Hearthstone: Blizzard Announces Mean Streets of Gadgetzan Expansion

Blizzard Entertainment revealed the fourth expansion coming to Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

Blizzard Entertainment revealed the fourth expansion coming to Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. The expansion is called Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, and it will contain 132 new cards for players to collect.

The Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion will take players to the city of Gadgetzan, which is home to three crime families, or factions: the Grimy Goons, the Jade Lotus and the Kabal. Each of the three factions is associated with three different character classes.

Specifically, the Grimy Goons are affiliated with the Hunter, Paladin and Warrior classes, while the Jade Lotus are affiliated with the Druid, Rogue and Shaman classes. Finally, the Kabal are affiliated with the Mage, Priest and Warlock classes.

As part of this expansion, Tri-Class cards will be added to the game. Each faction will have its own Tri-Class cards, and only the classes associated with a faction will be able to use its cards. For example, a Tri-Class card associated with the Grimy Goons faction will only be available to use in Hunter, Paladin and Warrior decks.

Once this expansion launches, players will be able to win Mean Streets of Gadgetzan card packs in Hearthstone’s Arena mode. Players will also be able to purchase packs with in-game gold and real money.

The Mean Streets of Gadgetzan expansion is expected to launch on iOS, Android and PC in early December. Users can pre-purchase a bundle of 50 Mean Streets of Gadgetzan card packs now for $49.99, and players will be able to open them when the expansion launches. Each pack will contain five cards, and at least one card in each pack will be of “Rare” quality or better.
