(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Game developer Blizzard took the wraps off its latest title Friday, announcing it would soon begin beta testing Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.

Hearthstone will allow players to collect card decks based on one character class, duel each other and win more.

In a press release, CEO Mike Morhaime noted the company had long had a liking for collectible card games.

“We’re putting a lot of focus into creating a fun new game that’s easy to pick up and play, but also has a lot of depth. We can’t wait to share it with everyone,” Morhaime explained.

The game itself features two modes, “Play mode” which is head to head along with “The Forge,” where players start by building new decks. Blizzard was expected to showcase the game at this weekend’s PAX East conference.
