Hearthstone’s Blackrock Mountain expansion arrives April 2

1 min read


HEARTHSTONE! Blizzard’s hit card game just keeps on trucking, having earned plenty of converts and fans since it went public. A free to play model that actually works and a meta-game that is open to newcomers and experts has resulted in Hearthstone being one of Blizzard’s big hits of 2014. Still, the game is going to need to keep that momentum going through 2015. And it’ll look to do just that with some new cards in the upcoming Blackrock Mountain expansion. IT’S TIME TO D-D-D-D-D-D-D-D-DUEL!

Blackrock Mountain will be out next week on April 2, and follow a similar format to last year’s Curse Of Naxxramas add-on. Basically, you’ll play through a wing of challenges, with five wings in total unlocking throughout the month on a weekly basis. Announced last year at PAX East, Blackrock Mountain will have a more singular challenge design in mind, as players engage in various boss battles based on the Blackrock Mountain raid from World of Warcraft.

Conquering the expansion, will earn players 31 new cards, which includes two class-specific cards for each character in the game. And since I’m feeling charitable, here’s the entire list of cards revealed so far that you’ll be gunning for:

Neutral Cards

  • Blackwing Corrupter
  • Blackwing Technician
  • Dragonkin Sorceror
  • Drakonid Crusher
  • Hungry Dragon
  • Volcanic Drake
  • Dragon Egg
  • Grim Patron
  • Nefarian
  • Rend Blackhand

Class Cards

  • Core Rager
  • Dragon’s Breath
  • Flamewalker
  • Dark Iron Skulker
  • Lava Shock
  • Imp Gang Boss
  • Axe Flinger

    I suspect I’m gonna drop the cash for this expansion… Just don’t have the time to grind for gold to afford the expansion.

    Love this game though!
