HearthstoneBlizzard Entertainment’s big game reveal at PAX East is Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft, a free-to-play collectible card game that’s coming to PC, Mac, and eventually iPad.

Set in the World of Warcraft universe, each Hearthstone deck will revolve around heroes of nine of the MMO’s classes. At least 300 cards will be available at launch, and you’ll be able to earn or buy packs. Also, you’ll be able to put together your own decks and be able to “disenchant” duplicates and craft better, presumably original cards from them.

The competitive side of the game will feature one-on-one fights via Battle.Net, which, if you didn’t know, is the service Blizzard uses for its PC games. It isn’t clear what the iPad version will use details are still coming out from the announcement.

Hearthstone is due out at some point this year. The iPad version will likely follow the PC and Mac release. A playable build is apparently available on the PAX East show floor, so we will update the details as we learn more. In the meantime be sure and take a look at the video for the release announcement:
