Goblins vs. Gnomes isn’t set for launch until Monday, Dec. 8. But thanks to the latest update to the acclaimed card battle game developed by Blizzard, all Goblins vs. Gnomes cards are now available to choose from in the Arena on iPad. As noted by Blizzard:
… anyone who logs in to the game between December 4 and December 8 automatically gets their next new Arena run for free! 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.
Beginning Dec. 8, with the official launch of the new expansion, you’ll be able to add Goblins vs. Gnomes cards permanently to your collection by purchasing packs, using dust, or earning Arena rewards.
Goblins vs. Gnomes features 120 new cards, a new “Mech” minion type, and a new themed game board.
The latest update to Hearthstone also introduces Spectator Mode, which lets you watch your friends’ games in progress, along with various card changes and bug fixes.
The game previously received a major content update in July with the launch of its “Curse of Naxxramas” adventure.
An iPhone edition of the game is expected to be released early next year.
