Q: What is
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft?
A: Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a free-to-play digital collectible
strategy card game that anyone can enjoy. Players choose one of nine epic
Warcraft® heroes to play as, and then take turns playing cards from their
customizable decks. Players are able to cast potent spells, use heroic weapons
and abilities, or summon powerful characters to crush their opponent.
Q: Why is Blizzard making Hearthstone?
A: We looooooove collectible card games and have been playing them since our
Silicon & Synapse days. Creating a digital strategy card game felt like a
natural next step for us, so we put together a small team and have been
hammering away at Hearthstone for a while now. This is something we’ve wanted to
do for a long time, and we’re excited to be working on something different from
our other games. Same goes for creating a game for iPad in addition to PC. It’s
been a thrill to work on Hearthstone, and we hope everyone has as much fun
playing it as we’ve had building it.
Q: Do I need to know anything about card games or Warcraft to play?
A: Not at all! We’ve designed Hearthstone so that anyone can get into it, no
matter how familiar they are with the Warcraft universe or collectible card
games. The game will teach you everything you need to know as you play it.
