It’s time to duel, free to play digital collectible card game players living in Europe. Blizzard Entertainment has announced that the open beta for Heartstone: Heroes of Warcraft is now live in Europe. A Twitter update on the official Hearthstone profile confirms the same.
“The Hearthstone Open Beta is now live in Europe! The wait is over, and the fun begins—your decks await…!”
Developed with the Unity Engine, Hearthstone brings collectible cards into the popular Warcraft universe. Players will be able to choose from up to 382 cards and construct their own decks to compete in Arena and Play modes. There will also be a practice mode for you to hone your skills along with a Collection Manager for checking collected cards and crafting new ones.
Heartstone: Heroes of Warcraft is currently slated to release in 2014 for PC and Mac OS X, with iOS and Android releases due for later. The open beta is also currently live in North America.
