Blizzard reveals free-to-play card game HearthStone: Heroes of Warcraft

Blizzard just revealed HearthStone: Heroes Of Warcraft during PAX East. This is the studio’s first free-to-play game and one that is obviously based on the popular World Of Warcraft franchise.

HearthStone is a turn-based online card game that is being developed by a small and new team of 15 at Blizzard. The game will offer over 300 card types and five cards per pack. Packs will be available for purchase at around $1 dollar each. Two competitive modes have been revealed so far: Play Mode offers traditional head-to-head battles while The Forge has players starting by building a new deck and using it to battle other players.

The beta should launch this summer and signups are already open at Hearthstone is in development for Windows and Mac, as  well as iPad, with this one appearing a bit later.
