Hearthstone gamers who are looking forward to the next expansion, Blackrock Mountain, will be pleased to learn that Blizzard has confirmed the expansion’s release which has been pegged for the 2nd of April in the US, and the 3rd of April in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe. The expansion is currently available for pre-purchase for gamers who want to get the exclusive Molten Core card back.
The latest Hearthstone expansion is the third in the series and was actually announced earlier this month, although at that time of announcement Blizzard did not set a release date. The expansion will be similar to the Curse of Naxxramas expansion in the sense that it will feature less new cards and will bring back the same format which are dungeon wings where players will have to defeat a variety of different bosses.
There will be a grand total of 31 new cards introduced to the game which is admittedly much less than the Goblins vs. Gnomes expansion, but for gamers who have already burnt through the new content, we suppose these 31 new cards are better than nothing. The expansion is priced at $25 although gamers can choose to unlock each wing individually which would cost them more at the end of the day.
Wings can also be unlocked using in-game gold at 700 gold per wing, and given how long it takes to farm the gold, it could take some players a while to fully unlock everything. Gamers who wish to pre-purchase the game can still do so via the in-game store itself.
