Hold on to your butts, Hearthstone players. This may excite you more than a getting your hands on a Elite Tauren Chieftain. Okay, maybe not but this is still rad news. Although the official expansion for Goblins vs. Gnomes doesn’t come out until next week, you can jump on now and test the new cards out now in Arena mode.
All of the upcoming expansion pack cards are available to pick from in the Arena, according to a Blizzard press release.
“In addition, anyone who logs in to the game between December 4 and December 8 automatically gets their next new Arena run for free,” according to Blizzard. “It’s a zero-risk chance to see some of the new cards in action-with a high-risk chance of something going explosively awry. And if you’re already in the middle of an epic Arena run that won’t be finished before December 8, don’t worry-just make sure to log in during the pre-launch period, and you’ll be good to go.”
Once the expansion launches on December 8 in North America and December 9, well, everywhere else, players will be able to start adding these 120 new cards to their decks via all the normal methods like buying packs, using dust or earning rewards in Arena.
