Last month at their sometimes annual convention Blizzcon Blizzard announced that their card game Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft would be going into open beta sometime this month. However Blizzard now feels the game isn't quite ready yet and has delayed the open beta into early 2014. This is no doubt do to balancing concerns, as the game has received a number of balance updates over the past few weeks. The good news is that anyone who signed up for the beta prior to December 16th has been sent a beta invite, and the new open beta release date is set for January 7th.
I received my invite to the closed beta earlier this month and have been having a lot of fun with this unique card game. I highly recommend this game to everyone once it goes into open beta, especially since it is planned to come to iOS and Android sometime next year.
