Hearthstone is taking its next big step forward with the upcoming Goblins vs. Gnomes, set to hit in December. After the BlizzCon announcement, Shacknews pulled aside software engineer Rachelle Davis to talk about the upcoming expansion.
Our own Greg Burke asks about the game's Secrets, the ongoing bot situation, and the idea of a physical iteration of Hearthstone, as well as what will help bring the Gnomes and the Goblins to life through this new content.
Check out the first part of our interview with Davis below. Look for more with the Hearthstone engineer, including answers to some of Chatty's questions, in the near future. Shacknews also went hands-on with the Goblins vs. Gnomes expansion during our time at BlizzCon and you can check out our impressions here.
Ozzie Mejia posted a new article, Hearthstone engineer talks Goblins vs. Gnomes and the ongoing bot problem
