Blizzard Entertainment has announced a new game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, during the company’s panel at the Penny Arcade Expo 2013.

Blizzard has said that a new team is behind the development of the game, which is said to feature a faster pace and experimental gameplay elements.

The game will be a free-to-play strategy title, as Blizzard “wanted to do something a little different” with their next endeavour.

The panel is currently ongoing, and we will update details as they come in.

Update: Blizzard has revealed that Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft will be a digital collectable card game set in the Warcraft universe.

The game will arrive on PC, Mac and iPad within 2013. Beta sign ups are now available.

    Well I didn`t go do research. I merely pointed out the names were eerily closely related. And I don`t play HoN or LoL. Play a bit of dota, but never thought they actually put it into a genre of its own. Thanks for pointing out its called a moba btw

    Haha agreed. He even said “eerily”. There is no hope.

  • The Rich

    Yep Multiplayer Online Battle Arena. And no, I can’t to be honest say that I agree that the names are closely related. I just don’t see the link between ‘Dota’ and ‘Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft’.

  • Pur!Fier
