Hearthstone's 'Tavern Brawl' mode goes live with new heroes in tow

Blizzard Entertainment's popular card-battling game based around the Warcraft universe, Hearthstone, has a new game mode ready for the playing. Tavern Brawl was announced last week, and presents users with a repeating, temporary event that spices up the action with a new set of rules each week.

In addition to the new Tavern Brawl mode, players also now have access to some new heroes to add a bit more flavor to their decks. Unfortunately, they're only available as separate purchases. However, if you're willing to shell out $9.99 for each hero, you'll have your choice of picking up the warrior, Magni Bronzebeard; the hunter, Alleria Windrunner; or the mage, Medivh.

If you're interested in checking out all of this new content, you can download Hearthstone's latest update to get started.

  • Did anyone knows Blizzard make Hearthstone for Windows phone?
  • They don't unfortunately. It's just on PC.
  • Hopefully they will make it at some point.
  • Keep dreaming. 
  • Its on IOS and android
  • 10$ for a pic, no thank you...
  • And new animations, voice and dialog.
  • Still, shelling out 90$ for that stuff seems very over the top in my opinion. Features like this could/should have been free to add more life to the game.
  • Tavern brawl and new skins are awesome. The skins will need some additional polish, and I'd love to see alternate class cards, but it's pretty cool. I'm hoping to still see tournament mode show itself sometime this year. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Blizzard is already taking all my money with Heroes of the Storm. I cant afford another game for them to take my money with as well ;).
  • Why you don't play in dota2?
  • Aren't these characters just new skins? Do they even have new abilities?
  • No new abilities
  • Yeah the characters are an absolute joke, bout interested at all.
  • I hope next news about HS here will be release of game for WP or universal app, and not another minor update.
