Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft gets “Blackrock Mountain” expansion in April

Blizzard Entertainment used the weekend to detail “Blackrock Mountain”, a new add-on for Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

The addition is described as an “all-new Adventure that will challenge brave duellists to venture forth from the comfort of the tavern and plunge into the depths of Blackrock Mountain.

“The ‘Blackrock Mountain’ Adventure thrusts Hearthstone players into the middle of a war between powerful forces battling for control of the mountain,” Blizzard’s press release continued. “There, duellists will encounter fierce minions, including Dark Iron dwarves, fire elementals, and dragons, before facing off against iconic menaces from the Warcraft universe, such as Ragnaros, the Firelord. Card-slingers who take down these villains will reap a mighty reward—31 scorching new cards inspired by the legendary mountain and its denizens, bringing a wealth of new tactical options to the ever-evolving Hearthstone metagame.”

The add-on is expected in April on Windows PC, iOS and Android. The add-on will be available for 700 in-game gold or $8.99 AUD per wing.
