Blizzard Announces Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft During PAX East Stream

ss1-fullThousands tuned in Friday morning – more than 20,000 viewers via stream – to find out what Blizzard’s teased announcement was going to be.  Speculation ran rampant despite Blizzard saying it had nothing to do with current IPs, people still were saying it was going to be an announcement about Titan or Blizzard’s All Star.  Some hopefuls even suggested it might be Warcraft 4 or the next World of Warcraft expansion.

It was none of those.

Blizzard already has a physical card game for World of Warcraft, where people bought cards not only to play the game, but for the chance to get one of the rare vanity pets.  It only made sense that they’d take the card game and turn it digital.  Enter the new, free-to-play game that was announced Friday:  Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

If you have played Magic the Gathering: Planewalkers 2012 or 2013, you have a general idea what this game is going to be like.  Just switch MtG for Warcraft and you have the general idea.

Hearthstone will be available for the PC and Macintosh systems, with plans to have an iOS version in the future.
