The first part of the Blackrock Mountain expansion for Hearthstone is now available for Android tablets

Players of the game can purchase each wing for $6.99 each or all five for $24.99. Here's what Hearthstone fans can expect from this new single-player expansion:

In Blackrock Mountain, Hearthstone players find themselves amid a war between powerful forces battling for control of the legendary mountain. Deep within the mountain's core, duelists go toe-to-toe against fierce minions, including Dark Iron dwarves, fire elementals, and dragons, while facing off against legendary menaces from the Warcraft universe, such as Ragnaros the Firelord. Card-slingers who extinguish these villains will reap a mighty reward—31 scorching new cards inspired by the mountain and its denizens, bringing a wealth of new tactical options to the ever-evolving Hearthstone metagame.

The expansion will go live on Friday, April 3 in Europe and Asia. Each of the other four wings in Blackrock Mountain will go live each week during the month of April. Blizzard plans to release a version of Hearthstone for Android smartphones later this spring.
