Hearthstone is the new online multiplayer TCG (Trading Card Game) from Blizzard Entertainment. After the plans for Titan were frozen, Blizzard decided to gather a small group of artists and developers and give them a new reason, Hearthstone was born. Hearthstone is a classic TCG á la Magic the Gathering just without the specific mana cards needed to summon creatures. In Hearthstone mana comes with Turns you make and you can spend it for spell or creature cards. It’s bright colors make Hearthstone fun to watch and many people who played games from Blizzard before, will notice lots of spells and creatures that are well known from other games, Blizzard created.
- Beautiful graphics made with love
- Solid Trading Card mechanics known from other games
- Beloved characters from other Blizzard games
- You don’t have to play all the time to compete with others
For those of you who haven’t seen or heard from Hearthstone yet I’ll post a trailer with actual in-game footage and some side information about the creation and the team behind Hearthstone.
As you can see, Hearthstone is fast paced and loaded with some action. But it is developed for both, hardcore and casual gamers who want to have fun.
On the other hand it is not quite sure yet, how you will get new cards for your in-game decks maybe you’ll be able to get all cards through playing but it might be possible that there will be a real money shop to buy cards and boosters. If so let’s just hope that Hearthstone will not in pay-to-win but Blizzard always done a good job not letting this happen to their games so i have quite some faith that it will be alright.
Everyone who loves either Blizzard games or Trading Card Games should definitely look into this game. It has a great potential and promises to be an exiting and joyful new Blizzard experience. You can play it as hardcore or casual gamer and compete with others to see who actually got the most power hidden inside his body. Give it a shot, I most certainly will!
