Those that simply can't wait to throw money at Hearthstone for the new Grand Tournament expansion now have their chance, since Blizzard has opened the door for pre-order card pack bundles.

As promised during last week's initial reveal, Hearthstone players now have a chance to pre-order a handful of card packs from the upcoming Grand Tournament expansion. Players will be able to pick up 50 card packs for $49.99, a deal that roughly equals a dollar a pack.

The details of the deal are laid out on Battle.net, with Blizzard noting that the bundle can only be purchased once per Battle.net account. For comparison's sake, buying card packs a la carte runs at a rate of 2 for $2.99, 7 for $9.99, 15 for $19.99, or 40 for $49.99. By that rate, the pre-order rate is like getting 10 free card packs. Those that pre-order will also get the Grand Tournament card back immediately.

The card packs can be opened once the Grand Tournament opens up to all players. Blizzard has yet to issue a date for the expansion's release. In the meantime, be sure to catch up with Shacknews' ongoing card breakdowns and check out our interview with the game's director.
