StarCraft and Warcraft creator Blizzard Entertainment has been teasing the reveal of a new game for some time now, and today at PAX East 2013, a consumer show taking place this weekend Boston, the studio unveiled a free-to-play digital collectible card game by the name of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.
“Sheathe your sword, draw your deck, and get ready for Hearthstone – the fast paced strategy card game that’s easy to learn and massively fun,” reads a blurb on the game’s official website. “Start a free game on Battle.net and play your cards to sling spells, summon creatures, and command the heroes of Warcraft in duels of epic strategy.”
