Powering up and exploding onto the scene: Goblins vs Gnomes, Hearthstone’s first expansion, has been officially EXPLODING revealed today at BlizzCon!

Expand-o-Matic 5000!

Goblins vs Gnomes throws players smack dab in the middle of a rivalry between cunning goblin engineers and their eternally-tinkering gnome counterparts. These pint-size foes don’t always have the upper hand over the myriad mechanical contraptions they cook up, and the results can be . . . unpredictable.

Over 120 New Cards

The expansion brings a slew of brand-new cards that are ready to wreak a wealth of mechanized havoc on your opponent:  Our own tinkerers and explosives aficionados have assembled over 120 new cards that will be sure to throw a wrench in your opponent’s gears—literally. Check out a few of the wild and wacky inventions that have been engineered  for your collection below!

Meet the Mechs

The new expansion brings with it an all-new minion type—Mechs. Much like the Alarm-o-Bot and Harvest Golem, these quirky contraptions have been built to pack a creative spring-loaded punch to your game. Goblins vs Gnomes will introduce both neutral and class-specific Mechs, so prepare for things to get interesting*!

Big Trouble, Little Packages

Stirring up trouble this December for Windows®, Mac®,  and iPad®, Goblins vs Gnomes cards will be available by purchasing Goblins vs Gnomes-specific card packs in the in-game shop with either gold or real money, whichever you prefer (same pricing as expert card packs). As with Curse of Naxxramas, Goblins vs Gnomes cards will be made available in your Arena picks as soon as the cards have been released; even if you haven’t added them to your personal collection!

Prepare (Your Kneecaps) for Battle!

We hope you enjoyed this early look at Hearthstone’s first expansion—Goblins vs Gnomes. Stay tuned for further details right here on our brand new Goblins vs Gnomes page here!  Keep an eye out** for the expansion in December!
