It’s official, Blizzard is testing the waters of the Free to Play market. Their entry into this massive community of games will be known as Hearthstone – Heroes of Warcraft. It comes as no surprise that the game will be taking place in one of their long standing game universes. Using a number of familiar classes, spells and even animations, players will try their hand at this online trading card game. From putting together a deck to fighting it out in intense strategic battles, the game is on a much smaller and more simplified scale as compared to the massive games the studio is known for.
The development process for the game is pretty standard, with Blizzard aiming for a Beta testing phase this summer followed by live releases for both PC and Mac, with a release for the iPad to come at a later date. So far there is no word on whether or not the game will also be developed for Android devices, but a port of this nature is certainly not out of the question.
