In a live stream today, Blizzard revealed the release date for Hearthstone’s fourth expansion, Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. The new expansion will arrive on Thursday, December 1st.

Mean Streets of Gadgetzan will add 132 new cards to the game as players explore the seedy port city of Gadgetzan. Excited fans and collectors can pre-purchase packs containing the newest cards through Blizzard’s official site. You’ll also be able to craft it in game with Arcane Dust.


Each crime gangs running Gadgetzan has a gimmick, with different cards reflecting their specific focus. The Grimy Goons have cards that will buff minions in your hand, the Kabal uses potions that that can clear the board or affect enemy creatures, and the Jade Lotus have stealth cards and golems that should work really well for rogues or druids

Each Hearthstone expansion adds cards, a new board, and additional challenges. The last big addition was an adventure called One Night in Karazhan, which I thought was pretty cool. We’ll see how this new expansion is later on this week.
