In this strategy card game will need to defeat any opponents you come across by arranging the perfect deck and executing your strategy to perfection. Only with the greatest combination of deck power and strategy will you be counted among the best.
Though Hearthstone is the first completely free to play title released by Blizzard, the setting is one that most will be familiar with; the Warcraft Universe. The heroes that will be at your disposal have been pulled directly from the class options in World of Warcraft, allowing you to choose between Paladins, Priests, Shamans, Warriors and the rest. Many of the spells and abilities have also been pulled from former Warcraft games, often even with similar spell effects. Aside from the spells and classes, Hearthstone heads in a completely different direction than any of the previous entries in the franchise.
Rather than controlling a hero in an action packed, fast paced 3D environment, you will have to make much more calculated and strategic decisions. Though you won't start with all 300 cards in Hearthstone available to you, you can begin to work out the strategies of the game from the entry level set of cards you will have and any others that you collect along the way. Learn how the various cards are best used during a match and adjust your strategies accordingly.
