Well, I admit it, it make me disappointed, this is the new of Blizzard, just a card game? It's like I supposed to know a big secret, but it only told me something irrelevant. Anyway, let's have a look at this game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, a digital collectible strategy card game set in the Warcraft universe. It's available to play at PC, Mac, iPad. What's important, it's free to play, so Blizzard plans to make it become an universal game? Everyone can play it at anytime, anywhere.

"Players choose to play as one of nine epic Warcraft heroes, and then take turns playing cards from their customizable decks to cast potent spells, use heroic weapons or abilities, or summon powerful characters to crush their opponent."

There are 3 gameplay modes in Hearthstone: Practice Mode, Play Mode and The Forge.

In Practice Mode, you can play against A.I. opponents (normal or expert), try out different card combination strategies, then unlock 8 heroes step by step. Play Mode is a traditional head-to-head match, winning then getting a higher ranking is the goal, players also have a chance to win card packs. In the matches, system will help you find right opponents. In The Forge, you can not only enjoy matches against others, but also building a deck by your own selection of cards. Your choice will lead you to win or lose.

According to the official, the first test will come in this summer in NA. Check out here for Blizzard's press release for the game. And please head to the official site for more information. More details of the game will be revealed by Blizzard soon.
