During Blizzcon 2019, Blizzard Entertainment revealed Hearthstone: Descend of Dragons, a high-flying 135-card expansion for their smash-hit free-to-play digital card game, Hearthstone, with a cinematic trailer. At the same time, the studio also revealed Hearthstone: Battlegrounds, an 8-player auto-battler, in which players will recruit minions, strategically position them, and watch as they battle for supremacy.
Watch the trailers below and stand a chance to win one of three early access codes to Hearthstone: Battlegrounds (which ends on the 12th) but also gain access to Hearthstone: Descend of Dragons when it launches on the 10th.
Hatching on December 10, Hearthstone: Descend of Dragons, which is set within the Warcraft universe, is the epic conclusion to the turn-based collectible card game’s year-long storyline. In the latest expansion, players will be armed with draconic firepower — including the ability to transform into Galakrond, the mightiest dragon in Warcraft.
“We love constantly exploring new ideas with Hearthstone, from telling an epic year-long story to introducing fun new ways to play,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “Descent of Dragons embodies that value—we think players will have a blast with all of the new cards as well as the new gameplay mechanics we’re introducing with this expansion.”
Hearthstone: Battlegrounds is a free game mode is designed as a standalone experience that uses Hearthstone as a foundation, but it does not require building or maintaining a card collection.
To stand a chance of winning a beta code for Battlegrounds (and later the Hearthstone: Descend of Dragons expansion), all you need to do is let us know what you love about the franchise (in the comments section below).
