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.
