Blizzard had a new title to announce at PAX East today, and while it wasn’t a massive new core entry in an existing franchise or anything (PAX is too small a stage for a new core entry in a Blizzard IP), Collectible Card Game fans should nonetheless finding themselves leaping with joy.
The new game in question is called Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft and represents a CCG take on the popular Blizzard fantasy franchise.
A free-to-play game that will allow players to purchase new cards for as little as $1, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will be made available on PC, Mac and iPad platforms, with Blizzard promising it will be “far more fluid than other CCGs out there”.
Big words indeed.
No release date has yet been announced for the new title, but a Beta has been confirmed to take place sometime this Summer.
Also, in typical Blizzard fashion, they’ve released a rather swish looking CG teaser for the game which you can see after the cut. Enjoy!
