Hearthstone: Battlegrounds—A Free Fast-Paced Fun New Way to Play
Descent of Dragons launches during the ongoing beta test for the popular new game mode Hearthstone: Battlegrounds, a raucous eight-player auto-battler featuring 24 unique Heroes, in which players will recruit minions, strategically position them, and watch them battle each other for supremacy.† Following last month’s debut at BlizzCon®, millions of players flocked to the tavern to take part in the Battlegrounds early access period and open beta test. That momentum has continued, with Battlegrounds fueling ongoing excitement for Hearthstone among veterans and new players alike.
Hearthstone: Battlegrounds is a free standalone experience that doesn’t require a card collection. Players will be able to unlock optional bonus features for this mode when they acquire card packs—including free packs, those acquired with in-game gold, and those purchased with real money—from the most recent Hearthstone expansion (starting with today’s launch of Descent of Dragons).** At 10 packs, players unlock comprehensive stat-tracking in Hearthstone: Battlegrounds; at 20 they can choose their hero from among three different options instead of two at the start of each match; and at 30, players unlock the ability to playfully communicate with their opponents using a visual emote system.
Descent of Dragons and Hearthstone: Battlegrounds are available today on Windows® and Mac® PCs; Windows, iOS, and Android™ tablets; and mobile phones. Descent of Dragons card packs are winnable in Hearthstone’s Arena mode, and players can purchase them with in-game gold or real money at the same prices as Hearthstone’s other card packs.
