During BlizzCon 2013, Blizzard unveiled more news regarding their free collectible card game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft; set to be released later this year on PC, Mac, iPad and on iPhone and Android in the future.

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft invites players to build a strategic deck, based on the nine epic Warcraft heroes from the World of Warcraft classes; Druid, Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Rogue, Shaman, Warlock, and Warrior. There are over 300 cards available for players to unlock, via completing practice games against A.I. opponents, earning gold in duels to purchase card packs, winning a chest of loot based on your result in the Arena and disenchanting expert cards in your collection, to receive Arcane Dust to craft other cards of your choosing.
