Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft is a free-to-play online collectible card video game developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, released worldwide on March 11, 2014. Hearthstone builds upon the lore of theWarcraft series, using characters, creatures, and relics from the series. It was first released for Microsoft Windows and OS X personal computers, and later supported iOS and Android devices; it features cross-platform play that allows players on any device to compete with each other, restricted only by geographical region account limits.

The game is a turn-based card game between two opponents, using constructed decks of thirty cards along with a selected hero with a unique power. Players use mana points to cast spells or summon minions to attack the opponent, with the goal to reduce the opponent's health to zero. Winning matches can earn in-game gold, rewards in the form of new cards, and other in-game prizes. Players can then buy new cards through gold ormicrotransactions and use these cards to customize and improve their decks. The game features several modes of play, including casual and ranked matches, as well as daily quests and weekly challenges to help earn more gold and cards. New content for the game involves the addition of new card sets and gameplay, taking the form of either expansion packs or single-player adventures that reward the player with collectible cards upon completion.

In contrast to other games developed at Blizzard, Hearthstone was an experimental game developed by a smaller team based on the appreciation of collectable card games at the company. The game was to designed to avoid pitfalls of other digital collectable card games by eliminating any possible plays from an opponent during a player's turn and by replicating the feel of a physical card game within the game's user interface.

The game has been favorably reviewed by critics and proven successful for Blizzard. By April 2016, Blizzard has reported more than 50 million Hearthstone players. The game has become popular as an eSport, with cash-prize tournaments hosted by Blizzard and other organizers. (Wikipedia)
