Blizzard previously announced that Hearthstone's Goblins vs. Gnomes expansion would be available on December 8. And while that's still the case, the excitement for new cards was just too much to bear, so the expansion cards have already made their way to the game's Arena mode.
Arena mode runs normally cost 150 gold or $1.99, but anyone that logs into Hearthstone from now until December 8 will get their next Arena run for free. The expansion will kick off in earnest on Monday, allowing players to purchase packs or craft them out of dust.
In addition to this announcement, Hearthstone has opened up its Spectator Mode, for anyone that wants to see more seasoned veterans in action.
Coincidentally, this comes moments after Steve's feature on the best, worst, and strangest Goblins vs. Gnomes cards was posted. So why not give that a look here?

I just played the free arena round with some new cards... Wow, this is going to be a completely different game now.
