Blizzard has confirmed the release date for Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, the next expansion for its popular card game Hearthstone. The add-on will be available on Thursday, December 1.

The release date was announced during a livestream earlier today, a recap of which is available above. The date lines up with Blizzard’s “early December” window, which was revealed alongside the expansion itself at BlizzCon earlier this month.

Mean Streets of Gadgetzan brings 132 new cards to the game and three new factions, the Grimy Goons, Kabal, and Jade Lotus. The biggest new feature, however, is the new tri-class cards. These cards can be used by the three classes, and they come in different gangs.

You can pre-order the expansion today through Battle.net. You’re basically paying for 50 packs at a discounted price of $50. Each pack is guaranteed to have at least one Rare or better card. Just keep in mind that you’ll only be able to open them after the expansion has launched.
