Blizzard has announced that they will be launching a new franchise called Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft which will be a card game that is free to play.
Heartstone will be available for both PC, Mac and the iPad which in my opinion is great. My first reaction to this game was “I hope it becomes available for the iPad” and I guess Blizzard realized how perfect of a platform the iPad is for card games.
So Heartstone will be card game where you play 1on1 duels against other players and it will be focused on competitiveness and have a lot of depth and charisma they said.
Players will be able to buy, craft or earn cards through playing the game and the cost is said to be $1 per card. Matchmaking will be done through Battle.net.
The game is slated to be released in 2013. And after listening to the interviews and seeing the video below, I must say I am very excited for this game. I’ve always wanted to get into card games and this is undoubtedly the perfect opportunity. I can’t wait to be playing Hearthstone while at the airport or just socially with some friends over our iPads.
