Hearthstone expansion Blackrock Mountain out next week

Three new cards revealed.

Hearthstone expansion Blackrock Mountain comes out next week, Blizzard has announced.


It goes live on Windows, Mac, iPad and Android tablets on 2nd April in the Americas region, and 3rd April in Europe, Korea, Taiwan and China.

The rollout begins with the release of the first wing, Blackrock Depths.

To get the Molten Core card back you have to pre-purchase the entire £17.49 adventure with out-of-game currency: old-fashioned real life money, iTunes balance or Google Play balance. The pre-purchase period ends when Blackrock Mountain goes live, so get your skates on if you want that card back.

The dragon-themed Blackrock Mountain expansion adds 31 new cards to the game, three of which Blizzard just revealed.


Volcanic Drake is a 6/4 for six mana dragon class card that costs one mana less for each minion that died this turn.

Drakonid Crusher is a 6/6 for six mana dragon class card whose Battlecry sees it gain +3 / +3 if your opponent has 15 or less health.

And finally, Nefarian, an 8/8 for nine mana cost dragon with a powerful Battlecry: Add two random spells to your hand (from your opponent's class).
