PSA: Blizzard’s Hearthstone Open Beta Is Up And Running

Have you been green with envy while watching all those Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft streams on Twitch? Well green no more, my friend, because the delayed Hearthstone beta is open to everyone now!

Starting today, anyone with a Battle.net account can try Hearthstone for themselves. Some of the features open beta users should look out for:

  • New Ranked Play Mode – Ranked play has a new face, with month long seasons and the goal of reaching Rank 1, The Innkeeper.
  • Players Near Me Feature – You can now opt-in to seeing other Hearthstone players on your local network in your friends list.
  • Recently Played Opponent Feature – Your friends list now displays the last person you played against that isn’t already in your Friend’s list, so that you can friend them for future duels.

Don’t expect a full review until the game is out of beta, but our Ron Whitaker loved it back in March, and Mitch talks about it ad nauseam on Twitter. Leave your thoughts on the game and/or your super secret deck strategies in the comments.
