Blizzard announced today that the first expansion to the hit digital collectible card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will be available to players starting next week on December 8th in America and December 9th for Europe, Korea, Taiwan and China.

The new Goblins vs Gnomes expansion, first announced during BlizzCon last month, adds over 120 new cards to the game with the distinctive theme surrounding the rivalry between Goblins and Gnomes. As brilliant tinkering races, the expansion focuses mainly on adding cards with a mechanical nature like cogs, rockets and all different sorts of technological influences.

Goblins vs Gnomes work just like the original cards that launched with the game and can be purchased in their own separate packs, crafted with dust or earned through playing in the Arena game mode. If you haven’t played Hearthstone yet, you can download it now for free on PC, Mac and iPad with an Android version set to release by the end of the year.
