Blizzard Entertainment has announced Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft for the iPad, a free-to-play card vs card strategy game. Hearthstone is said to be simple but engaging as you collect and build your own deck of cards based around one of nine Warcraft character classes. You will duel it out in either practice mode to fine tune your skills or in two competitive game modes through battle.net, all while collecting hundreds of cards by either winning duels or purchasing new card packs. Cards possess a wide range of spells, weapons and characters giving you limitless possibilities and the ability to create your perfect deck of strategy.

“We’ve always loved collectible card games at Blizzard, so it’s been exciting to bring everything we love about the genre to life in Hearthstone,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re putting a lot of focus into creating a fun new game that’s easy to pick up and play, but also has a lot of depth. We can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
