Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a new free-to-play strategic Collectible Card Game (CCG) for Windows, Mac and iPad.
Inspired by the popular Warcraft franchise, Hearthstone features nine iconic Warcraft character classes, of which players can choose one and build card decks around it to duel each other for fun and new cards. Players can quickly create a deck and jump in for a fast-paced battle against either AI or buddies via the Battle.net friends list in the practicing matches.
Moreover, it offers two competitive gaming modes that challenge gamers to battle in different styles. The Play Mode is for players to engage in traditional head-to-head battles, in which they face off for a chance to increase their medal ranking and earn card packs along the way. And the other mode is The Forge where competitors start each match by building a deck from a new set of cards and then use that deck to duel other Forge participants. Aside from winning new cards, players will be able to round out their collections by purchasing new card packs or disenchanting some of their existing cards to craft the ones they’re missing.
The game features hundreds of cards with a wide range of colorful Warcraft spells, weapons, and characters included, which offer limitless possibilities for players to develop deck-building strategies. It is easy to pick up regardless of players’ familiarity with the franchise or the card genre, but also has a lot of depth for experienced players to enjoy the competition and challenge.
Hearthstone has a schedule for its first CBT very soon.
