Hearthstone Heads to the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan

New cards and three crime families headline Hearthstone's latest expansion.

Today at Blizzcon 2016, Blizzard Entertainment announced the next Hearthstone expansion, taking players to the Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. The fourth expansion to Blizzard's CCG will feature 132 new cards and has players befriending one of three crime families: the gangster-style Grimy Goons, the quiet assassins of the Jade Lotus, and the mana-smuggling Kabal.

The Hearthstone classes are aligned with one of the three families. Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior have class cards and minions aligned with the Grimy Goons. Mage, Priest, and Warlock are all a part of the Kabal. Finally, Druid, Rogue, and Shaman stand with the Jade Lotus. This allows for multi-class cards, like Grimy Goons neutral minions that can be used by Hunter, Paladin, and Warrior alike.

"Each one of Gadgetzan's crime families are associated with three of Hearthstone's classes. We've introduced 9 tri-class cards that break the rules: each can be used by three different classes instead of just one to expand deckbuilding possibilities and really make the theme of each crime family stand out. Each family's boss is also a Legendary tri-class card!" explained Blizzard in a news post.

Players can pre-order 50 packs of Mean Streets of Gadgetzan cards for $49.99 right now. The cards won't go live until the expansion releases, but you'll have the packs at a low, low price. The expansion is scheduled to go live later this year, but no specific date was given.
